Top European leagues are set to oppose Federation Internationale de Football Association plans for adding more teams and playing days at the 2022 World Cup.

Fifa President Gianni Infantino gestures while speaking during a press briefing.

"We are not prepared to make any changes on the calendar for expanding the 2022 World Cup", Olsson told The Times in Britain.

Joseph-Antoine Bell, a former Cameroonian global football goalkeeper, has also endorsed Morocco's bid, emphasizing that Morocco has all the assets to organize a spectacular tournament.

Abubakar Ago, a retired FIFA licensed referee, has said that the country's referees are capable of officiating at the FIFA World Cup finals if given the opportunity.

In 2013, FIFA started consulting football officials worldwide in an 18-month process that reached an expected conclusion - to push back the schedule and play in cooler months, with a November 21 - December 18 schedule. "If these people's guilt is proven, then there's a high likelihood they won't be allowed to attend World Cup and Russian league games".

"Morocco is ready to welcome the FIFA Task Force to our land of football", said Elalamy.

Federation Internationale de Football Association disallowed countries from Europe and Asia to bid for hosting right to the world cup, with the intention to spread the hosting rights for the World Cup more evenly across the globe - this year's World Cup will be in Russia with the next one in 2022 in Qatar.

The money is distributed on a daily rate for players involved in the tournament to each club which employed him during the two previous years.

The FIFA Task Force, which has the power to eliminated either the Moroccan or joint North American bid for the 2026 tournament before the vote at the Congress in Moscow in June if either fails to meet their requirements, will inspect stadiums, training venues and other facilities during their trip.
