Note: a previous version of this post stated that the next World Club Cup will be in Morocco. That is incorrect. That tournament will be held in Japan.

Fifa seemingly announced today that the 2013 and 2014 World Club Cups will take place in Morocco. I’m in favor.

The conventional take:

This is a good thing because this is an event that has heretofore only taken place in Asia. Good that it should leave that continent. It doesn’t make money anyway, so why not move it around.

My egostistical take:

If I was to make one change to FIFA, it would be the outlawing of games I personally want to watch at 2:30 a.m. Pacific time. That’s when I had to wake up to see this most recent World Club Cup final. Prime time in Morocco is far more manageable for me. (also, it probably stands a chance of increasing interest in Europe. Probably good for the tournament, but I don’t give a good goddamn about that. Why did I even bring it up.)
