• WC 2026: The Netherlands Will Vote for Morocco to Host World Cup 2026

    (Morocco World News) Rabat – The Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB) has announced that it will vote for Morocco’s bid to win the hosting rights to the 2026 World Cup on Wednesday, June 13, at the 68th FIFA Congress in Moscow.

    The Netherlands announced its decision to back Morocco’s bid on the eve of the vote. The news was confirmed by Dutch news outlet AD today.

    “We want to do something for all the good things Africa and Morocco have brought to Dutch football in recent years,’ said van Praag, President of the KNVB.

    He added that the Dutch federation chose the Moroccan bid to show loyalty “to an important part of our Dutch society, namely to the community that is rooted in Morocco. This loyalty is a logical consequence of the KNVB’s aim for diversity on all fronts in our society. We therefore see it as a moral obligation to vote for Morocco.”

    Several Moroccan footballers play on Dutch football teams, making their footprints notable in Dutch football fields, including Nordin Amrabat, Ibrahim Affelay, Karim EL Ahmadi, Mbark Boussoufa, Hakim Ziyech, and Sofyan Amrabat.
