Morocco plans to spend $15.8 billion if it gets 2026 World Cup

MPs are calling for the World Cup to be postponed and moved out of Russia

"We talked about the bidding process for the World Cup in 2026 in which the FIFA Congress in Moscow on 13th June will make a decision", he told a news conference in Bogota.

Video assistant referee technology (VAR) will make its debut at the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer despite lingering opposition from within and outside football, Fifa president Gianni Infantino said Friday.

"Nobody knows exactly how VAR will work".

Some reports suggest that the Premier League is not expected to introduce the technology next season, while Uefa has stated that it will not be used in the 2018-19 Champions League.

VAR most recently cause controversy in English football when a disallowed goal and an overruled penalty overshadowed Tottenham's 6-1 victory over Rochdale in the FA Cup at Wembley.

"The intervention of VAR takes one minute on average in each game".

"Referees have to go out and referee a football match, and players have to go out and play, let the game take care of itself and if we need intervention then we can look at it".

Morocco would need to spend nearly $16 billion to prepare to host the 2026 World Cup, with every proposed stadium and training ground built from scratch or renovated, the bid said Saturday.

"It's good and necessary that there are changes but it's essential that we don't lose the essence of football", added Suarez.

"We are allowing global matches to be staged in the cities of Arbil, Basra and Karbala", said Infantino.

Iraq has not played full internationals on home turf since its 1990 invasion of Kuwait.

"The 2026 FIFA World Cup will be the largest football event in history and our united bid can be counted on to deliver the experience, the infrastructure and the resources necessary to make this extraordinary event an unprecedented success for FIFA and for all of the member associations in our global football family", a United 2026 statement said.
