Australia plans to host the World Cup in 2030 or 2034

“I started (Possible application to work on) By 2030 … I think we should start“Australia’s Rod McGioch, who oversaw the candidacy for the 2000 Sydney Olympics, told the newspaper that discussions in this direction had already taken place between the Australian Federation and the public authorities responsible for the event. James Johnson, the boss of the Australian Federation, hopes he can compete again thanks to the momentum created by the organization, which has shared with New Zealand the 2023 Women’s World Cup and the 2032 Olympics in Brisbane.

“We are going to organize a big competition in 2023“, He explained to the Australians.”We need to use it more, it could be a stepping stone to other FIFA competitions. “And there is a trend”, He added. “Look at Canada, which hosted the Women’s World Cup in 2015, 11 years later, they are going to host the Men’s World Cup with the United States (and Mexico). Look at Brazil: they won the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016.

However, Johnson recognizes a hurdle in his plan: the 2030 tournament will probably return to Europe or South America because the next tournament will be held in Qatar, a member of the Asian Football Confederation like Australia, and North America in 2026. But 2034 will still be open to Australia, whose national team has qualified for the last four World Cup finals.

The country has already tried its luck by 2022, but the candidacy, which will cost taxpayers $ 45 million (28 28 million), received only one vote against the controversial winner, Qatar. Spain and Portugal have already announced a joint bid for the 2030 edition ahead of the centennial of competition, with the UK / Ireland doubles and Argentina / Chile / Paraguay / Uruguay competing.
