UEFA president Ceferin says will fully support Spain and Portugal in hosting 2030 World Cup

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said he unconditionally supports Spain and Portugal in qualifying for the 2030 World Cup.

The two countries signed an agreement in 2020 to confirm a joint bid to host the 2030 World Cup. Once the bid is successful, Spain will host the World Cup again after 1982, and it will be the first time in history for Portugal.

“I am sure that the 2030 World Cup will be held in Spain and Portugal,” Ceferin said via videoconference on Monday at the opening ceremony of the Football Talks International Congress in Lisbon. “Both countries have a deep affection for football.”

“This bid will be a successful one and we will do everything we can to help two countries that are passionate about football, bathed in football atmosphere and have good infrastructure.”

“We will do everything we can to help. It is time for Europe to host the World Cup and we have some plans for that. We have already worked with Fernando Gomez (President of the Portuguese Football Federation) and Luis Rubiales ( President of the Spanish Football Federation) had a conversation.”

At present, the main opponents of Spain and Portugal are Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and Paraguay. They officially announced their joint bid to host the 2030 World Cup in August this year. The four countries said that the 2030 World Cup should return to its place of origin at the 100th anniversary of the World Cup. The 1930 World Cup was the first World Cup hosted by Uruguay, the football powerhouse at that time.

In addition to the four South American countries, Morocco and China both intend to bid for the 2030 World Cup, but their bids are unlikely to succeed.

In 2018, Britain and Ireland planned to jointly bid for the 2030 World Cup, as did the “Balkan Alliance” composed of Romania, Greece, Bulgaria and Serbia. However, they both eventually dropped out of the race to host the World Cup.
