A joint bid for the 2030 FIFA World Cup has been submitted by four South American countries

2030 FIFA World Cup

On Tuesday, Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay made an official bid together to host the 2030 FIFA World Cup.

While doing this, the four South American countries asked for the tournament to go back to “where football was born.” The first World Cup was held in Montevideo, Uruguay, 100 years ago.

Alejandro Dominguez, president of the South American Football Confederation, joined officials from the four countries at a ceremony at the Argentine Football Association (AFA) headquarters in Buenos Aires (CONMEBOL).

Dominguez said that he hoped FIFA would show the region some “greatness” by letting it run the tournament.

Also, basketball stars praise Lebron James for breaking an NBA record and becoming the player with the most points of all time.

“The World Cup in 2030 is not just another World Cup; it should be celebrated and remembered for 100 years,” he said.

“We are sure that FIFA has a duty to honour the people who believed in greatness and made the first World Cup.”

“As world champions, we do this launch, which is the dream of every South American,” said AFA President Claudio Tapia. Not only because it’s been 100 years since the first game, but also because we love football so much.”

Alberto Fernandez, the president of Argentina, said that Bolivia would be asked to join “this dream” on his official Twitter account.

After the first World Cup in Uruguay, it was held in Argentina in 1978 and in Chile in 1962. Paraguay has never been the host of the sport’s biggest event.

The South American bid will go up against a joint bid from Spain and Portugal, which has already been signed, as well as possible bids from Morocco and Saudi Arabia for 2030.
