The various national teams and clubs of the Kingdom have represented the country with dignity and have shone in each of the competitions. The historic performance of the Atlas Lions at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, whose echo was heard around the world, was only the icing on the cake of a continental raid in both men’s and women’s football.
Indeed, the national clubs won all the continental competitions for men (Champions League for WAC, CAF Cup and Supercup for Berkane) while FAR won for the first time the Women’s Champions League. According to the ranking of CAF member associations, since 2020 and until today, the Moroccan championship is the best in Africa.
At the national team level, the U17 women’s team qualified for the Women’s World Cup for the first time, beating the host country, India.
The women’s senior team managed to reach the final of the CAN 2022, and will play this summer, for the first time in the history of the Arab world, the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 in Australia and New Zealand.
Finally, Morocco has won two consecutive CHAN, and Morocco is today endowed with the best African Futsal team in history (8th in the FIFA ranking), with a solid record of success: 2 CAN, 2 Arab Cup 1 Confederations Cup and a quarter-final elimination in the last World Cup.
All these results are the fruit of the work carried out by the Royal Moroccan Football Federation, under the leadership of its President Fouzi Lekjaa, who has put in place, since 2014, a real development strategy for local football.
