South American giants unite for joint bid to host 2030 FIFA World Cup

Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay plan to make history as they come together to submit a joint bid to host the highly-anticipated 2030 FIFA World Cup.

The 2030 tournament will mark 100 years since the first World Cup was held in Montevideo, Uruguay, making it a momentous occasion for the sport of football.

At the Argentine Football Association headquarters in Ezeiza, Alejandro Dominguez, President of the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) announced the effort to bring the tournament back to “where football was born.” He said…

“The 2030 World Cup is not just another World Cup, it deserves a celebration with recognition for 100 years. We are convinced that FIFA must honour the memory of those who came before us and believed in greatness and made the first World Cup.”

The competition to host the world’s most popular sports tournament has intensified as FIFA is set to select a host for the 2030 World Cup next year. Spain, Portugal, and Ukraine have also agreed to a joint bid with the backing of UEFA, while countries such as Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Greece, and Egypt are reportedly considering submissions.

The World Cup is held once every four years, with Qatar being the first country in the Middle East to host the tournament in 2022. The 2026 tournament will be jointly hosted by the United States, Mexico, and Canada, marking the first time three countries will co-host the tournament.

Claudio Tapia, President of the Argentine Football Association, stated that the joint South American bid to host the 2030 tournament would fulfil “the dream” of all football-loving individuals in the region.

“Not only on the centenary of the first edition but because of the passion with which we live football.”

Argentina’s President Alberto Fernandez also expressed his excitement on Twitter. He said…

“It would be a great joy if, 100 years later, the World Cup returns to where it all began.”

He even went on to propose that Bolivia join in the candidacy.

“The joint bid by these South American nations is sure to bring in a new level of excitement and competition to the already highly anticipated 2030 FIFA World Cup.”

The World Cup has been held in South America on several occasions: 1930 Uruguay, 1950 Brazil, 1962 Chile, 1978 Argentina, and 2014 Brazil.
