The Moroccan Royal Football Federation (FRMF) and the coach of the Moroccan national football team have been decorated by Sky News Arabia last weekend.
FRMF was named the Best Arab Federation for it’s achievements with their national team and in club football while their senior team trainer Walid Regragui, scooped the best Arab international manager award.
The Atlas Lions were crowned Arab international football team of the year.
The awards were given at the “Legends Night 2023”, the Ramadan evening during which the Abu Dhabi-based news channel hosts and honors renowned sports legends.
Walid Regragui’s Morocco reached new heights in Qatar, as they became the first African and Arab team to reach the semi-finals of the World cup.
The widely-celebrated coach has become a national icon and the pride of millions of Moroccans across the world, having led the team to unprecedented success after only a few months in the position.
Morocco finished fourth after losing to Croatia in the third-place play-off. The team defeated Belgium, Spain, and Portugal during the historic ride.
The FRMF led by president Fouzi Lekjaa was awarded for the work it does to radiate and develop football in Morocco in recent times.
The support of the FRMF helped Moroccan clubs RS Berkane and Wydad Casablanca claim the CAF Confederation Cup and Champions League respectively during the 2021/22 season.
They won the African Nations Championship in 2018, and 2020.
With president Lekjaa at the helm of the federation, the Royal Moroccan Football Federation has become arguably the best in Africa.
