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.

Then, you'll move to the artists area and culture scene and grab lunch in one of the best restaurants in town. Then we'll head to both Raja Casablanca and Wydad's core neighbourhoods to see the amazing murals dedicated to both clubs and their Ultras.

What does a trip include?

A trip on the Homefans marketplace is a carefully hand-picked experience curated by Homefans and the local hosts in the destination to offer a unique sports experience through local eyes.

It usually includes the following:

  • Match Ticket
  • Local Host
  • Pre-Match Experience with local fans
  • Pre-arranged activities

In some cases more activities will be added or some will be omitted (and mentioned in the inclusions)

Where in the stadium will we be sitting?

If we know where you will be sitting, we always mention this is in the inclusions section.

Unfortunately, we are not always able to tell you that at the time of booking. However, our destination managers and local hosts work tirelessly to make sure you get the best seats.

We always aim for the long side of the home supporters section.

Can I upgrade my seat location?

We can always upgrade the seat location based on availability, at an extra cost. We do recommend that the group  stays together in the same area to get the most out of this experience, but if you would like to enquire about an upgrade, feel free to get in touch.

How many people will be on the tour?

The maximum number of people the host will allow is stated above.

However,  this number may not always be met and it may even be possible that your party is on the tour on your own.

Higher numbers make for a more sociable experience, lower numbers make for more personalised attention from your host. Look at it as a win/win!

How do you plan and execute your trips seamlessly?

The trips and activities on the Homefans marketplace are designed and executed by fully-vetted locals, and supervised and monitored by Homefans.

All bookings made on Homefans are backed by our Buyer Guarantee so you have a peace on mind when booking.

With more than 10,000+ customers , Homefans is one of the biggest specialised sports marketplaces in the world.

Homefans is for everyone!

If we can accept children, there will be an option to do so in the booking flow. However, for some trips, our local hosts take the decision to open this up to adults only, based on the content of the tour. If you are looking to travel with under 18’s, please feel free to contact us and we can discuss your options.

Will I have to share a room?

In order to keep competitive prices,  the trips on the Homefans marketplace always offer prices based on 2 people sharing.

If you wish to stay on your own in a single room, you may pay a supplement for a guaranteed single room. This can be found on the extras section at checkout and you can add it to the booking. You can also get in touch with us to arrange this.

Can I cancel my trip if I cannot travel?

If you foresee that you cannot longer attend this trip, we appreciate if you let us know with time in advance.

According to our Terms & Conditions , if you tell us 45 days before the trip starts, we can keep your deposit and transfer it to another future trip or use it as credit.  The deposit payment is non-refundable and non-transferrable.

Why are there local hosts on the trips?

Homefans was created to address a pain point we experienced quite often. You travel abroad to watch a sporting event, yet once you arrive, you still feel like an outsider, with a lack of knowledge around the destination and the event.

The local hosts on the Homefans marketplace address this issue by becoming the local link to your trip. They enhance the experience completely, and create that necessary human connection – and will surely become friends in the future!
