Fifa has reassured that the health of players, officials and supporters will be its utmost priority at this year’s Club World Cup in Morocco.

It has been widely speculated that the world football governing body might sought to change the venue for the biggest club football tournament involving all the champions of the federation’s affiliates.

Morocco will be hosting the Club World Cup for a second successive time after last year’s successful tournament- won by then champions of the Uefa zone, Bayern Munich.

“According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), there have not been any recorded cases of Ebola in Morocco, so consequently there is no reason to discuss a possible change of venue. Should the situation change, we will make contact with the participating clubs,” a Fifa statement read.

Fifa has also planned to send a “memorandum” containing medical information related to the tournament to each of the participating clubs two months to kick-off.

Moroccan champions Moghreb Tetouan are among five clubs to have grabbed their ticket for the tournament due to run from December 10-20. Others are reigning European champions Real Madrid, champions of Oceania Auckland City, South American champions San Lorenzo and CONCACAF champions Cruz Azul.

The champions of Asia and Africa will be determined on 1and 2 November respectively.
