    10 Nov 2021

    Fez - Morocco once again confirms its position as a preferred destination for several African nations. The North African country is scheduled to host seven qualifier games for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

    The International Federation of Football (FIFA) and the Confederation of African Football (CAF) have rejected Sudan, Mali, Guinea-Bissau, Burkina Faso, and Liberia, from hosting their games. The countries in question are undergoing unrest, instability, and deteriorating health conditions.

    The football games will take place between November 12-16, as part of the qualifying rounds for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Tangier, Marrakech, Agadir, Rabat, and Casablanca will host the games.

    Morocco will face Sudan on November 12 in the Prince Moulay Abdellah Complex in Rabat at 8:00 p.m.

    Also on November 12, Burkina Faso will play Niger at Grand Stadium in Marrakech at 2:00 p.m.

    In group C, Liberia will play against Nigeria on November 13 in Tangier Grand Stadium at 5:00 p.m.

    Mali will face Uganda on November 14 at Agadir Grand Stadium before facing their Central African Republic counterpart on November 16 in Tangier at 5:00 p.m in Group E.

    Guinea Bissau and Sudan will face off on November 15 in Marrakech Grand Stadium at 5:00 p.m.

    The encounter between Morocco and Guinea, which will take place at 8:00 p.m. on November 16 at Mohammed V Sports Complex in Casablanca, will bring the series to a close.

    Morocco had previously hosted eight African qualification matches for Qatar World Cup 2022, on October 12-16. Morocco's Atlas Lions was ranked 29th in the latest FIFA rankings, which were released on October 21.

    Morocco has advanced four places in the latest rankings and is also the third best football team in Africa with an overall score of 151.
