Overview

Go off the beaten track and discover this incredible city derby in Morocco. The Casablanca Derby between Raja and Wydad is fast becoming one of the world’s great derbies. Where two social classes collide – and where you’ll see the outrageous choreo and tifos of Morocco’s ultras at their very best.

Morocco’s biggest city is hectic and business-minded. But on derby day it slows down to a crawl – with many businesses closing a few hours before kick-off. The game is usually moved to the city’s 80,000 capacity Mohammed V Stadium to accommodate the huge crowd. And you’ll be blown away by the noise and color brewing there hours before kick-off.

Raja vs Wydad is easily the biggest rivalry in Moroccan football, and the tension hangs in the air for days beforehand. When the game does arrive – the atmosphere is out of this world. With flags, colour, and smoke creating one hell of a scene.

You won’t see the Casablanca derby on many bucket lists. But if you want to experience a true hidden gem with so much energy it’ll blow you away – the Casa derby is a must-visit.  This 4 day Casablanca discovery tour gives you plenty of time to discover this bewitching city and includes city sightseeing, accommodation, airport transfers and your all-important match ticket.
