Blatter inaugurates fields in Morocco



FIFA president Sepp Blatter on Sunday inaugurated two synthetic turfs in Morocco, where he began a North African tour last week that took him also to neighbouring Algeria.

The pitches, situated in Morocco’s north-western city of Salé, were designed by the local authorities in collaboration with FIFA as part of the project “GOAL 2 and 3.”

Accompanied by CAF president Issa Hayatou and Ali Fassi Fihri, head of the Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF), Blatter lauded the progress made so far by the Kingdom in the development of the sport.

“I’m very happy to revisit Morocco and see for myself the great achievements realised in the Kingdom in the recent years,” Blatter said.

“When we gave the 2010 World Cup hosting rights to South Africa, we knew it caused some frustrations here in Morocco, but SM King Mohammed VI told us they would work to develop the country’s football, especially by improving infrastructure, and which is what we are seeing today,” he added.

Morocco will host the 2013 and 2014 editions of the FIFA Club World Cup.
