2030 World Cup: Four Latin American countries want to host it

Compartilhe esse artigo

A movement involving the soccer federations of Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and Paraguay suggests the possibility of bringing the 2030 World Cup to the four countries.  As the first World Cup took place in Uruguay in 1930, representatives of the group believe that in the year the competition turns 100 years old, it should return to South America, where it began to be played.

In that edition, the Uruguayans beat Argentina 4 X 2 in the final, becoming the first World Cup champion. There will be the first World Cup to be held in four countries, if approved. In 2026, the competition will be held in three different nations: Mexico, the United States and Canada. The host of the 2030 World Cup must be approved during a congress in 2024.

Spain and Portugal in the running

Spain and Portugal together are the only rival candidates for the time being, after postponing their candidacy to June 2021. Morocco, which at first would join the Iberian countries, can apply on its own, but has not yet officially done so. The desire to hold the Cup in South America in 2030 initially began to be advocated by Uruguay and Argentina in 2017. Chile and Paraguay joined the movement later.

“This is the dream of a continent,” said Alejandro Dominguez, president of the South American Soccer Confederation (Conmebol). “There will be more World Cups, but the Cup only completes 100 years once and it needs to come home,” the leader added at an event at Estadio Centenario in Montevideo. Since then, Chile (1962), Argentina (1978) and Brazil (1950 and 2014) have also hosted World Cup matches.

Most of the Cups have been held in Europe, but also Asia was a host (Japan and South Korea) and now in 2022 in the Middle East (Qatar).
