Saudi Arabia, Greece and Egypt plan to launch a candidacy for the 2030 World Cup and fight against a candidacy that is also Portugal and Spain as well as Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and Paraguay in South America. If this candidacy were to win the World Cup, it would be played again in Winter due to weather conditions.

This would be an unprecedented candidacy because although geographically the 3 countries are relatively close, the three belong to different confederations. Greece to UEFA, Egypt to the African Confederation and Suadí Arabia to the Asian confederation.

The representatives of each country have made ties to confirm their relations and present a great project to FIFA that can convince them to bring the World Cup to these three countries, especially with Gianni Infantino, president of FIFA, who would like to receive the greatest possible number of proposals.

Despite this candidacy, Aleksander Ceferin, president of UEFA is supporting the candidacy of Spain and Portugal who sees her as the one who will win the dispute.

“I am certain that we are going to have the 2030 World Cup in Spain and Portugal”assured Ceferin during his participation in the opening of Football Talks, conferences organized in Lisbon at the headquarters of the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF).

During a virtual intervention, he pointed out that he sees the proposal as “a winning tender” and acknowledged that they are going to work “to help”. “It is up to Europe to host the World Cup,” she insisted.

Spain and Portugal signed an agreement to launch the joint bid in June 2021eleven years after also presenting a shared project to organize the 2018 World Cup that FIFA awarded to Russia, in a vote in which it also awarded the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

In addition to Spain and Portugal, Uruguay, together with Argentina, Chile and Paraguay launched on August 2 in the Centenario Stadium in Montevideo his project for the “Centennial World Cup”, as a pretended tribute to the 100th anniversary of the first World Cup event, organized by Uruguay in 1930.
