Argentina, Uruguay & Paraguay Join Together For 2030 World Cup Bid

Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay’s respective football associations have come together to make a joint bid for the 2030 World Cup.

Even though the bidding process will not begin for several more years, the three countries’ presidents came together in the Argentinian capital, Buenos Aires, on Wednesday to announce their plans.

The 2030 World Cup would mark the centenary of the tournament – first held in 1930, in Uruguay.

As such, Paraguay’s president Horacio Cartes felt confident at the countries’ chances with their bid, given the anniversary element.

He told reporters: “Other countries are going to want to host but there is a very strong argument in favour of Uruguay, which will celebrate 100 years.”

In June, Uefa announced that it would “strongly support” an English or pan-British bid to host the World Cup in 2030.

The earlier 2026 World Cup has seen just two bids so far, one from Morocco and another a joint bid between Mexico, Canada and the United States.

The North American bid is the firm favourite to win the right to host the competition.
