2024 Futsal hosting: Morocco carries Africa again

On Thursday, Morocco will carry Africa again, this time when it attains a new height as the seventh edition of CAF Futsal tournament begins.

Just like the Women’s AFCON which the kingdom is hosting back-to-back, Morocco is hosting the Futsal for the second successive time.

According to reports, eight teams are lined-up in Rabat from 11-21 April 2024. An indication of Morocco’s growing influence is the fact the the kingdom has won the last two titles of the quadrennial competition which has two debutants Namibia and Mauritania.

Ever-ready to host tournaments, Morocco refurbished the Salle Prince Moulay Abdellah and Salle IBN Yassine as venues for the exciting fast-paced eight nations indoor football competition.

Like in other competitions hosted by Morocco, full houses are again expected to fill the world-class Salle Prince Moulay Abdellah and the Salle IBN Yassine venues for the thrilling matches.

This indoor football continental competition promises to be a new coronation for the Kingdom of Morocco as it continues to confirm its leadership in the sports field and its commitment to the development of African football.

This is understandable considering the enlightened vision of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, the first promoter of a greater involvement of Morocco on the African continent and champion of South-South cooperation. One of His Majesty’s contribution is the sumptuous Mohammed VI Football Complex in Rabat.

Under the current monarch, Morocco has already accumulated a rich experience and undeniable know-how in the organization of major sporting events.

The 2018 CHAN, the 2020 CAN Futsal in Laayoune, the last and next Women’s CAN, the 2023 FIFA Club World Cup, the U23 CAN, the next five editions of the U17 Women’s CAN as well as the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations and the 2030 World Cup are testimonies of the country’s high level sports organisation.

Thanks to its high-level infrastructure, Morocco hosted more than 19 African teams that came to play international football matches during the last FIFA window in March.

This success story is the fruit of the enlightened vision of King Mohammed VI, who attaches particular importance to the development of sport and the promotion of the values of fair play and solidarity.

The Sovereign spares no effort to make Morocco a privileged host land for major sporting competitions and a key player in the African sporting landscape.

Morocco is not only a leader in terms of organization, but it is also a talented football nation. The kingdom is not just a participant, Morocco also present strong teams.

The national futsal team is the perfect illustration of this. Indeed, the Atlas Lions have won the last two CAN Futsal and reached the quarter-finals of the last World Cup.

They are currently ranked 8th in the FIFA Futsal rankings, confirming their status as a continental power in this discipline.

The 2024 CAN Futsal will therefore be an opportunity for Morocco to once again demonstrate its talent and passion for football.

The national team will be keen to thrill the Moroccan public and lift the trophy for the third time in a row.

The organization of the 2024 CAN Futsal is not just a sporting competition. It is also an event that carries noble values such as South-South cooperation, unity and African solidarity.

Morocco, faithful to its commitment to the continent, will do everything possible to make the 2024 CAN Futsal a resounding success and a symbol of the unity and dynamism of African football.

In conclusion, Morocco is positioning itself as the leader of African football as a host country and a talented nation.

The 2024 CAN Futsal promises to be a grand event that will allow the Kingdom to share its passion for football with the rest of the continent and confirm its leadership on the African sporting scene.
