According to reports from the local media, Egypt announced on Friday that it was discussing the possibility of submitting a joint bid for the organization of the 2030 World Cup alongside Greece and Saudi Arabia. On the DMC television channel, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Sports and Youth, Mohammed Fawzi, stated that “the three countries are working hard,” and that “the file of the organization (of the World Cup-2030) is under study.” Both of these statements were made about the ongoing preparations for the tournament. He went on to say that Egypt would be “one of the greatest organizing countries” for such a sporting event, citing the fact that Egypt has played host to several world championships over the previous three years.
In August, Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, and Paraguay declared their joint candidacy for the staging of the 2030 World Cup, which would celebrate the centenary of the competition. The inaugural edition of the World Cup was contested in Montevideo. The year 2030 will mark the centenary of the competition.
A year ago, Spain and Portugal made public their intention to run together for the presidency in 2030. Both countries are strong candidates for the position. FIFA needs to decide which country or countries would host the event in 2024. The 2022 FIFA World Cup is scheduled to take place in Qatar from November 21 to December 18. The United States of America, Mexico, and Canada will jointly host the 23rd FIFA World Cup, which will take place in 2026.
