THE MATCH

Raja Casablanca
V Wydad Casablanca

​​Fireworks, flares, raucous fans, and a riotous rivalry that spans 60 years. The Casablanca derby between Raja and Wydad is more than a game: it’s football expression in its rawest form. Red v Green at the Stade Mohamed V, loud enough to make your ears ring, ground shaking enough to make your mind rattle. Moroccan magic. Total football. Winner takes all.
THE CLUB

BIGGER THAN LIFE ITSELF

WHEN RAJA SCORE THE SKY THUNDERS

“Six league titles in a row. 1995-2001. The Green Eagles blew my mind with striking performances and last gasp winners. I’ll never forget winning the 1997 CAF Champions League with one of our greatest players Mustapha Moustawdaa’s incredible finishing.”
