Soccer WCup 2026 Bids Morocco

FILE - In this Friday, June 3, 2016 file photo, members of the Polisario Front, the organization disputing sovereignty over Western Sahara with Morocco, mourn their leader, Mohamed Abdelaziz, during his funerals held in the Rabouni refugees camp, south western Algeria. The 2026 World Cup contest has been engulfed in intrigue about whether Donald Trump’s rhetoric on immigration and foreign policy will cost North America votes, but what’s barely talked about is the impact of a territorial conflict that is impeding Morocco’s bid. Heavily criticized by FIFA for the lack of infrastructure and LGBT protections, Morocco’s claims on Western Sahara appear to be a factor for some countries heading into FIFA's vote on Wednesday, June 13, 2018.
