Will Britain and Ireland back down from their plans to host the 2030 World Cup?

British press reports point to the possibility of delaying the submission of a joint effort by Britain and Ireland to host the 2030 FIFA World Cup, as they want to focus their efforts on co-hosting the European Championship finals (Euro 2028).

The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson said in March last year that the United Kingdom and Ireland were very interested in hosting a global football event.

In the same month, a joint statement issued by the five football federations in the United Kingdom and Ireland expressed their delight with the government’s commitment to the World Cup proposal.

In a joint statement issued by the Football Associations of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, he said: In the five-year bid to host the 2030 World Cup, we will continue to discuss the possibility of evaluating the bid before FIFA officially opens the process in 2022.

In fact, the UK government has included a plan to host the World Cup in a recent Conservative report and has already set aside £ 11m for the feasibility study of the tournament.

Britain had the lion’s share in hosting the European Championship 2020, and Wembley Stadium in the capital London saw the final between England and Italy.

Following the riot in the final and the fans besieging the gates of the stadium without tickets, Boris Johnson said he was still hopeful that the United Kingdom and Ireland would host the 2030 World Cup.

On the other hand, Julian Knight, head of the team for digitalization, culture, media and sports, opposed Britain’s attempt to host the World Cup, calling it “nonsense”. “We will never win it, it is a waste of £ 11 million of government money to spend on the show,” he told Sports Minister Nigel Huddleston.

But Huddleston dismissed Knight’s distrust, arguing that the bidding process had changed fundamentally than it did in 2018.

The feasibility study is not expected to be completed anytime soon until April 2022.

The European Football Association (UEFA) is seeking to increase the number of teams participating in the “Euro 2028” edition to 32, with the European Football Association eager to select a safe and reliable file to host the tournament.

UEFA has 55 member associations, so increasing it to 32 teams compared to the current 24 will provide more opportunities for smaller nations that have failed in the qualifying rounds.
