UK And Ireland Will Make A Joint Bid To Host The 2030 World Cup

Prime minister Boris Johnson believes now is the perfect time for the UK and Ireland to host the 2030 World Cup.

It is said the UK government will pledge £2.8 million in Wednesday's Budget in an attempt to get the ball rolling.

The next World Cup is set to be held in Qatar in 2022 while 2026 will be in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

An official statement made by the FA as well as governing bodies from the other home nations reads: "The football associations and government partners of the UK and Ireland are delighted that the UK government has committed to support a prospective five-association bid for the 2030 FIFA World Cup.

"The FAs will continue to undertake feasibility work to assess the viability of a bid before FIFA formally opens the process in 2022.

"Staging a FIFA World Cup would provide an incredible opportunity to deliver tangible benefits for our nations.

"If a decision is made to bid for the event, we look forward to presenting our hosting proposals to FIFA and the wider global football community."
