FIFA grants the candidacy of Spain, Portugal and Morocco the organization of the 2030 World Cup

October 4, 2023 will be a day remembered in the history of Spanish sports. FIFA has confirmed that Spain, along with Portugal and Morocco, will host the next 2030 Soccer World Cup. With the exception of three games, among them the inaugural one, which will take place in South America, more specifically in Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, to commemorate the 100 years of the first World Cup held precisely in Uruguay. The announcement made by President Infantino will be transferred to the FIFA Congress, the body in charge of carrying out the formality of ratifying the Council’s decision. This extraordinary Congress is set for December 2024. In this way, Spain will once again host a soccer World Cup 48 years later.

Alejandro Domínguez, president of CONMEBOL, confirmed in a press conference held at the headquarters of the South American football institution, in Asunción (Paraguay), that “the opening match of the 2030 World Cup will be held in Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay. and then it will move to Spain, Portugal and Morocco.” Claudio ‘Chiqui’ Tapia, vice president of CONMEBOL and president of the AFA, ratified that decision: “It was impossible to get the votes and money to organize this World Cup. and it has been achieved that the three countries can host an event as significant as its inaugural stage.”

At the end of last year, the Council of Ministers approved the royal decree that regulated the direct granting of a subsidy of 7.5 million euros to the Royal Spanish Football Federation for the preparation and development of the 2030 World Cup bid. That was the first investment aimed at “promoting the Spanish candidacy through activities.” The Government figures in 1.4 billion euros investment to host the World Cup. An amount much lower than the 200,000 million that Qatar spent to organize the last tournament.

“I want to talk to FIFA in the next few hours so that This does not affect Spain’s candidacy for the 2030 World Cup″. Víctor Francos, president of the Higher Sports Council, was blunt when he learned of the FIFA suspension of Luis Rubiales, who was removed from office for 90 days after all the controversy that arose after the “non-consensual” kiss with Jennifer Hermoso. Spain was the favorite to organize, along with Portugal and Morocco, a World Cup 48 years later. But the ridicule committed by Rubiales could have altered everything.

Rubiales himself wanted to emphasize in his resignation statement that, among the reasons for leaving the side, was not to harm the Spanish candidacy. “I don’t want Spanish football to be harmed by this entire campaign.” “so disproportionate and, above all, I make this decision after having made sure that my departure will contribute to the stability that will allow both Europe and Africa to remain united in the dream of 2030, which will allow us to bring the largest event in the world to our country.” . Less than a month after her resignation, Spain has achieved its goal, the ’82 World Cup already has a substitute.
