Australia to apply to host 2030 or 2034 World Cup
ROME, Aug 12 (ANSA) — Australia will have to submit a bid to host the 2030 or 2034 World Cup, Australian sports officials inform local media.

The uncertainty about the date is due to the fact that FIFA has a habit of rotating its locations across continents and most likely the first available year will be in Europe or even South America. On 22, the event will be played in Qatar, which it is part of the same Asian Football Confederation as Australia, and on 26 the Cup will be shared across North America (Mexico, the United States and Canada).

“started [a trabalhar] for 2030. I believe we need to start now,” said Rod McGeoch, responsible for overseeing the bid for the Sydney Olympics in 2000 for “The Australian” newspaper. Events are already starting to gather. .

The idea is to use the Women’s Football World Cup, which will be held in partnership between Australia and New Zealand in 2023, as a decoy. In addition, the committee will make use of the fact that the country will host the 2032 Olympic Games in Brisbane.

In the same interview, Football Federation President James Johnson said the country has “a major competition to host in 2023” and that it “should be used as much as possible as a springboard for other FIFA competitions”.

“It’s a trend. Look at Canada, which hosted the 2015 Women’s Cup and 11 years later, will host the Men’s Cup along with the United States and Mexico. Look at Brazil: it hosted the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games. key”, Johnson pointed to the newspaper.

Furthermore, Australia still suffers from the country’s lack of support for hosting the controversial Qatar Cup in 2022, when Australians were eliminated in the first round of voting for only one vote – their own.

So far, Spain and Portugal have announced their intention to jointly host the 30th Cup, which marks the 100th anniversary of the competition. There is also the possibility of matches being played in Uruguay and Argentina, as Uruguay hosted the first edition of the competition, or even in the United Kingdom and Ireland. (ANSA).
