Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and Paraguay Jointly Bid to Host 2030 FIFA World Cup
Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and Paraguay Jointly Bid to Host 2030 FIFA World Cup: Four countries, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and Paraguay have launched a collective bid to host the 2030 FIFA World Cup.
Remember that Uruguay hosted and won the first edition of the FIFA world cup in 1930, defeating Argentina 4-2 at the finals in Montevideo’s Estadio Centenario. 92 years after, the CONMEBOL Nations aim to bring the quadrennial tournament ‘home,’ again.
CONMEBOL President Alejandro Dominguez suggested it was time to bring the event back to South America.
“T. will be more World Cups, but the World Cup only turns 100 one time and it needs to come home,” Dominguez said.
Chile and Argentina also hosted the World Cup in 1962 and 1978 respectively.
“This is the dream of a continent,” said Alejandro Dominguez, president of CONMEBOL.
“T. will be more World Cups, but the cup only turns 100 one time, and it needs to come home.”
Ignacio Alonso, president of the Uruguayan Football Association, added: “It’s right for the World Cup to be hosted w. it all began, 100 years later.”
Spain and Portugal have already announced their own joint bid to host the tournament.
FIFA is due to select the 2030 host in 2024.
The United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland withdrew their plans to submit a bid of their own, choosing to instead target hosting rights for the men’s European Championships in 2028.
The first edition of the FIFA World Cup was held in July 1930, featuring 13 teams from three confederations in the Uruguayan capital of Montevideo.
The final was .ed on Wednesday, 30 July, with the hosts fighting back from 2-1 down to beat Argentina 4-2 in front of nearly 70,000 people.
The 2022 tournament will be held in Qatar later this year.
Canada, Mexico and the USA will be joint hosts in 2026, the second time that the competition will be contested in more than one nation (2002, Japan and South Korea).
