Rabat:

Paris Saint-Germain will play Inter Milan in a friendly in the southern Moroccan city of Marrakesh on December 30, it was announced Monday.

According to the Moroccan football federation, the two teams will hold training camps in the city during their respective leagues' winter breaks.

The match will be played in the 40,000-seater Grand Stade, which will have hosted the final of the FIFA Club World Cup 10 days previously.

Marrakesh was also to have been host to the opening match of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, but Morocco refused to host the tournament in January-February over fears of the spread of the deadly Ebola epidemic.

The north African state had called for the Cup to be postponed, but organisers CAF rejected their request, stripping them of their position as hosts and barring them from playing in the continental showcase.

Oil-rich Equatorial Guinea, which co-hosted the 2012 edition with Gabon, were named as Morocco's replacement as new hosts for the 2015 tournament.
