2030 World Cup: UEFA backs joint Spain-Portugal bid

For the 2030 World Cup, UEFA is campaigning for the organization to return to Spain and Portugal. In a statement made by videoconference, the president of the body, Aleksander Ceferin, revealed his desire to see these two countries host the great world competition.

Since 2011, Spain and Portugal have had the ambition to organize an edition of the World Cup. The latter had presented a joint project to host the event, but in 2018 FIFA awarded the mission to Russia in a vote. For this edition, which starts on November 20, it will be organized by Qatar.

Despite everything, Spain and Portugal are not turning back. In June 2021, the two countries signed an agreement for the launch of a new joint bid. This is now supported by UEFA, which also wants to see the two countries host the 2030 World Cup. In a statement made by videoconference, the president of the body, Aleksander Ceferin, did not hide his support.

“I’m sure the 2030 World Cup will be played in Spain and Portugal, two countries that love football. It’s a winning bet and we will do everything we can to help those countries that are passionate about football, live and breathe football and have a good infrastructure,” said the Slovenian leader.
