The two countries signed an agreement in 2020 to push ahead with a joint bid to host the tournament and made it official in June. “I am sure that the 2030 World Cup will be played in Spain and Portugal,” Ceferin said via video conference at the opening of Football Talk’s international congress in Lisbon on Monday.

“This bid is a winning bid and we will do everything to help two countries that are passionate, live and breathe football and have a good infrastructure.” A total of 14 stadiums in 12 cities have been offered to be among the 11 Spanish venues expected to host matches if the Iberian bid is successful in the May 2024 FIFA vote.

Portugal will put up three stadiums for consideration. Spain hosted the 1982 World Cup and launched an unsuccessful bid with Portugal to host the 2018 tournament, which was awarded to Russia. Portugal has never organized the World Cup, but held the European Championship in 2004.

Argentina, Uruguay, Chile and Paraguay have announced a South American four-way bid which could have sentimental value as Uruguay hosted the first World Cup in 1930.

The United Kingdom’s four associations considered a joint bid along with Ireland, while Bulgaria, Serbia, Greece and Romania also planned a joint bid, although they were both dropped. In 2018, Morocco announced that it would present a bid to host the tournament in 2030, with later reports adding that it could be a joint one with Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

Media reports have indicated that China could also make a bid. Qatar will host the World Cup this year, followed by Canada, the United States and Mexico in 2026.
