Australia thinks about Men’s Football World Cup In the wake of the organization of the Women’s Tournament in 2023, local Olympic and Federation officials on Thursday announced that the country’s football leaders are preparing a candidacy to host the tournament in 2030 or 2034.
“I’m starting to work on 2030 (starting to run for a possible candidacy) …” Australian, Rod McGioch, who oversaw the Sydney 2000 Olympics bid. He assured that discussions in this direction have already taken place between the Australian Federation and the public authorities responsible for the incidents. On the other hand, Spain and Portugal have already announced a joint bid for the 2030 edition to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the competition, and competition can be seen from the United Kingdom / Ireland, Argentina / Chile / Paraguay / Uruguay.
Example of Canada
James Johnson, head of the Australian Federation, believes that the momentum created by the organization, shared with New Zealand, the 2023 Women’s World Cup and the 2032 Olympic Games in Brisbane. “We are going to have a big competition in 2023,” he explained Australian. “There is a trend,” he added. “Look at Canada, which hosted the Women’s World Cup in 2015, and 11 years later they are going to host the Men’s World Cup with the United States (and Mexico). Look at Brazil: they hosted the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics.
However, Johnson recognizes an obstacle to his plan: the 2030 tournament will probably return to Europe or South America, as the next one will take place in Qatar, a member of the Asian Football Confederation like Australia, and the 2026 North America. But 2034 will be more open to Australia. The country has already tried its luck in 2022, but taxpayers received only one vote for the candidacy, which cost A $ 45 million (28 28 million).
