“Our bid is no longer an Iberian bid, it is a European bid,” Luis Rubiales, president of the RFEF, told a press conference at the Swiss headquarters of UEFA, European football’s governing body.

“I am convinced that our offer is now much better than before. Football is universal and if it is capable of changing people’s lives in so many ways, it should also be used to do good,” Rubiales added.

Fernando Soares Gomes da Silva, head of the FPF, said UEFA was “fully supportive” of the decision to include Ukraine.

Spain, Portugal and Ukraine’s bid for the 2030 tournament will compete against other bids such as a collaboration between Egypt, Greece and Saudi Arabia and a joint South American bid by Uruguay, Argentina, Paraguay and Chile.

Last week marked seven months since Russian forces rolled across Ukraine’s borders in the largest military invasion of Europe since World War II. Moscow calls its action a “special military operation” while Kiev and its Western allies say it is an illegal land grab.

Tens of thousands of people have been killed in the conflict, millions have fled and towns and cities have been destroyed.

In a statement released on Wednesday, the RFEF said: “The candidacy (Spain, Portugal and Ukraine) strengthens ties with Europe by creating hope and providing reconstruction tools to the Ukrainian people, who have expressed their pride and gratitude for participating in this project.”

The 2022 World Cup will begin on November 20 in Qatar, while the 2026 tournament will take place in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
