A joint bid to host the FIFA World Cup in 2030 has been submitted by the countries of Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and Paraguay.
The member nations of CONMEBOL have the objective of bringing the quadrennial event “home,” in reference to Uruguay’s successful hosting of the very first World Cup in 1930, which they went on to win.
At the Estadio Centenario in Montevideo, Uruguay won the World Cup in 1930 with a 4-2 victory over Argentina in the championship game.
The President of CONMEBOL, Alejandro Dominguez, made the suggestion that it was high time to relocate the event to South America.
According to Dominguez, “There will be other World Cups; nevertheless, the World Cup will only turn 100 once, and it is time for it to return to its roots.”
In 1962 and 1978, respectively, Chile and Argentina were also in charge of hosting the World Cup.
The countries of Spain and Portugal, both located in Europe, have previously announced their desire to host the World Cup in the year 2030.
The United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland have reversed their plans to compete for the rights to host the aforementioned event and have instead shifted their focus to competing for the European Championship in 2028.
The United States of America, Canada, and Mexico will co-host the World Cup in the year 2026. These three countries are all located in North America.
The World Cup has been won twice by Argentina, once in Argentina in 1978 and again in Mexico in 1986. Uruguay has also won the tournament twice, in 1930 and again in 1950.
The event was first held in Uruguay in 1930 and then moved to Brazil in 1950.
Between the 21st of November and the 18th of December in 2022, Qatar is scheduled to host the FIFA World Cup.
