Australia must bid to host the 2030 or 2034 World Cup, Australian sports officials are reporting to local media.
The uncertainty about the date is due to the fact that FIFA is accustomed to rotating their positions across continents, and the first year available may be in Europe or even South America. On the 22nd, the event will be held in Qatar, which is part of the Asian Football Confederation, like Australia, and on the 26th the cup will be shared in North America (Mexico, USA and Canada).
“I started [a trabalhar] “I think we need to start now,” Rod McGuish, who is responsible for overseeing the bid to host the Sydney Olympics in 2000, told The Australian.
The idea is to use the FIFA Women’s World Cup, to be held in 2023 in partnership between Australians and New Zealanders, as a decoy. In addition, the commission will use the fact that the country will host the 2032 Olympic Games in Brisbane.
In the same interview, FIFA President James Johnson stated that the country has a “major competition to host in 2023” and that it “should be used as much as possible as a springboard for other FIFA competitions”.
“It’s a trend. Look at Canada, which hosted the 2015 Women’s Cup and, 11 years later, will host the Men’s Cup with the United States and Mexico. Look at Brazil: it hosted the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics,” Johnson noted to the newspaper.
In addition, Australia continues to suffer from the country’s lack of support to host the controversial Qatar Cup in 2022, when Australians were dropped in the first round of voting for having only one vote – their own.
So far, Spain and Portugal have announced their intention to jointly host the 30th Cup, which marks the competition’s centenary. There is also the possibility that it will be played in Uruguay and Argentina, where Uruguay hosted the first edition of the competition, or even in the United Kingdom and Ireland. .
