  • Infantino says FIFA can afford Morocco to host 2026 WCup

The Moroccan and the North American 2026 World Cup bids have passed FIFA'S evaluation test and will finally have each's name on the ballot at the body's next congress in Moscow on June 13.

Inspectors, who marked the joint bid from the United States, Canada and Mexico at 402 out of 500 and flagged Morocco's proposals on stadiums, accommodation and transport as high risks in a score of 275 out of 500.

A difference in projected ticket sales of United States dollars 1.3 billion between the two bids helped lead the report to note "significantly higher" forecast revenue of USD14.3 billion from North Americans and USD 7.2 billion from Morocco.

South African Football Association (SAFA) officials have decided on the bid they will vote for in next week's 2026 World Cup race but are keeping the decision from the public for the time being.

"Of course more teams means more stadiums, more venues, more hotels, more transportation", Infantino said.

"What our task has been is to make sure the process is as objective, as clear as possible, and to highlight the pros and the cons of everything", Infantino said.

"Now, there are more people who understand the game and get excited about the game". The final vote at the Fifa Congress is three days later and will be decided by up to 207 soccer nations in a public vote where the inspection scores can be ignored in regard to deciding the destination of the sport's worldwide showpiece.

"I hope when they vote they think what is best for football, definitely not on other subjective criteria that they might have for themselves", Infantino said.

Meanwhile, a host of delegates from Qatar are heading for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

Both have confirmed their intention to support the United 2026 bid rather than Morocco.

But he said that imposing a 48-team competition on Qatar - which is in the thick of preparations for a 32-nation tournament - would be "absolutely" unfair. The one-year deadline would begin during a blockade of Qatar begun one year ago by regional rivals including Saudi Arabia, who in that time have seemed more influential in FIFA's business.

No part of North America's proposals was called high risk and Federation Internationale de Football Association said it "has a clear lead" to advance the governing body's mission to "push new boundaries in terms of sports-related technology and engagement" since stadiums and hotels already exist.

Infantino defended his decision to consider a $25 billion offer from unnamed investors for two new tournaments - a revamped version of the Club World Cup and a global Nations League for national teams.

"To have played in LA for six years in the United States, and when we travelled to Canada, some of the teams we played there".

"I can not disclose (details) in that $25 billion", said Infantino who was not concerned about which country the investment originated from.

"I am happy to say that we have been hosting them in the country since yesterday".
