Weekend Soccer Match and Heavy Crowds in Casablanca


Location:
Casablanca, Morocco – Mohammed V Stadium

Event: A soccer match between popular Casablanca-based teams will take place at Casablanca’s Mohammed V stadium on the evening of Saturday, November 23.  A massive turnout of fans is expected to attend this match.  Large crowds and heavy traffic, as well as street closures, could result in significant congestion and delays in the area.  Many stores, restaurants, and cafés around Mohammed V stadium may be closed.  In the past, some fans of these teams also engaged in unruly behavior.  The U.S. Mission is recommending that its personnel avoid the area around Mohammed V stadium, the Arab League Park tram stop, and roads in-between during Saturday evening.


Actions to take:

  • Avoid the Mohamed V stadium area.
  • Please keep this event in mind when planning your travel around the city.
  • Keep a low profile.
  • Be aware of your surroundings.
