Rabat – President of the Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) Fouzi Lekjaa spoke on Thursday in an FRMF general assembly in Sale about the organization of both the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) and the 2030 World Cup, set to take place in Morocco.
The president began his speech by discussing Morocco’s most notable recent accomplishments in the world of football.
He also outlined the most important challenges awaiting the country in the upcoming years, the first of which is the construction and renovation of several football stadiums.
During the assembly, Lekjaa urged the presidents of national clubs, regional leagues, and all the actors in the field of football to work on making the 2025 AFCON and the 2030 World Cup successful.
“You are responsible for the success of a historic royal project in the year 2030,” Lekjaa told the officials in question.
He went on to say that before 2030, Morocco will be able to demonstrate its capabilities by hosting the 2025 AFCON, the first time that Morocco organizes such events since 1988.
Therefore, “responsibility has doubled, as we have to prove to the world that we are capable of organizing the World Cup, and that we will organize the best African Cup that the continent has ever seen,” he added.
Additionally, Lekjaa urged the leaders of the regional leagues to facilitate the infusion of fresh talent so that they can contribute additional value in the upcoming years.
In order to achieve more inclusive football success, the president noted that the country must improve football performance within the various leagues, including the women’s and amateur leagues.
“We must balance the reputation of our country with our endeavor to organize the World Cup and major demonstrations successfully, as well as develop our presence at the continental and global levels,” the president concluded.
