South American countries dangle joint bid for 2030 World cup

Four South American countries would be taking a shot at a joint bid to host the 2030 World Cup.

While Uruguay, Paraguay and Chile had all earlier thrown in their all to host the mundial together, World Cup holders Argentina have also officially confirmed a joint bid alongside the trio.

The first world cup in 1930 held in Uruguay and there had been an idea of the centenary commemoration of holding the world cup in the country.

Meanwhile, the four countries joint bid has now emerged with everything still a win-win for the South Americans.

The Argentine Football Association president Claudio Tapia who spoke about the development said that he really hopes to bring the tournament back to the continent where it was first held.

“We have the possibility of hosting this World Cup,” he said. “It has the history, the essence, the passion with which we South Americans live football.

“Today is a very important day for the history of these four countries, of these four federations that some time ago began with a dream

“We know that this is a very big commitment and that we must show the world that Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and Chile are up to the job of hosting the 2030 World Cup.”

Corroborating the claim, the CONMEBOL president Alejandro Dominguez said “Today we have a team, [and] we believe in greatness.

“We are convinced that FIFA has the obligation to honour the memory of those who preceded us and made the first World Cup possible.”

Meanwhile, there are reports that the scope for the bid might also involve a fifth nation, with Argentina’s president Alberto Fernandez adding that he expects to see Bolivia also host games.

“This candidacy is from the entire continent,” he tweeted. “For this reason, I would like, and I am going to propose, that our brother country Bolivia be part of this dream.” He said
