Leagues want Europe to unite, oppose new Federation Internationale de Football Association competitions

Olsson's comments come after he last month criticised Federation Internationale de Football Association for an "expansion drive" following the suggestion of a 48-team 2022 World Cup.

US last host the tournament in 1994 where Brazil emerged victor after beating Italy on penalties after the full regulation period had ended goalless. The Confederations Cup, which serves as a warm-up event for World Cup host nations, would be replaced by the expanded Club World Cup, which would see US$3 billion in revenue guaranteed for each edition by investors. The president finished by saying that they will be watching very closely and that they will appreciate any help they can give them in their bid. During a press conference on Monday, the president spoke about the support that he hopes to have from all African nations and nations throughout the world.

His comments come just days after he tweeted that the US, Canada and Mexico had put together a strong bid. The North African application has received the support of several countries from all over the world, including Saint Lucia, Qatar, Botswana, Nigeria, Kenya, Belgium, France, Egypt, and Tunisia. The closest was in 2010, when reports revealed that the country had lost to South Africa by four votes.

Morocco's 2026 World Cup bid committee, chaired by the Moroccan Minister of Industry Moulay Hafid Elalamy, is also expected to take part in the event. The US hosted the tournament 24 years ago.

United States of America qualified for the FIFA World Cup first in 1930 and reached the semifinal in their debut appearances, and they have appeared 11 times.

Europe's top football leagues are in "firm opposition" to FIFA President Gianni Infantino's plans for two new worldwide tournaments, the body representing them said on Thursday.

Jaimie Fuller, one of the founding members of the New FIFA Now advocacy group, believes Trump may weigh heavily on the North American bid, while cautioning that the vote remains finely balanced.

Bring the incredible atmosphere of the World Cup right into your home, with all 32 teams ready for action, each of the 12 stadiums accurately recreated and all packed to the rafters with fans, allowing you to immerse yourself into the tournament.

In recent weeks, at least three countries have announced their support for Morocco. The government of Dominica later announced its support for Morocco.
