British company “Populous” has won the design of Morocco’s Grand Casablanca stadium, which is set to seat 115,000 spectators, in preparation for the 2030 World Cup.

The company said on its official website that the Casablanca stadium is expected to be the largest football stadium in the world.

The company added that the stadium derives its identity from the culture of the “season” in Morocco, as its structure is located under a large tent roof that appears as an exciting intervention in the forest landscape, noting that the stadium site extends over an area of 100 hectares in the city of Mansouria in the province of Benslimane (38 km north of Casablanca).

The British company explained that the stadium will be compatible with the standards of the International Federation of Football Associations, especially for the organization of the 2030 World Cup, as well as Moroccan league matches.

The company’s president, Francois Clément, said that the expected pace of construction “indicates the commitment of all parties concerned to deliver this project on time and within budget, and will constitute a rich asset for the Kingdom, as well as raise it to the highest global platform for the development of sports infrastructure.”

Morocco is betting on Casablanca’s grand stadium to host the 2030 World Cup final, especially in light of Spanish pressure to hold the final in Madrid.

Morocco is moving towards handing over its updated stadiums to the CAF ahead of schedule
