The decision, acclaimed by FIFA President Gianni Infantino as a symbol of unity, encompasses three continents and signifies a global celebration of football.

The FIFA World Cup, set to feature 48 teams, will kick off in Uruguay, the nation that hosted the inaugural event in 1930, adding a historical touch to the centennial celebrations. Argentina and Paraguay will host one stage match each, contributing to the inclusivity of the tournament.

President Gianni Infantino expressed, “In a divided world, FIFA and football are uniting. In 2030, we will have a unique global footprint.” The selection of six countries across three continents underlines the essence of togetherness, merging different cultures and regions in a celebration of the beautiful game.

Following the 2030 World Cup, the tournament will traverse to Europe and North Africa, marking a significant global sports event that embodies FIFA’s vision of unity. The collaborative hosting approach emphasizes the interconnectedness of nations and the shared love for football.

With the 2026 edition slated to be hosted by the USA, Canada, and Mexico, FIFA’s strategy of rotating continents for hosting continues. Looking ahead to 2034, bids from the Asian Football Confederation and the Oceania Football Confederation will be considered, highlighting FIFA’s commitment to promoting football on a worldwide scale.

Reports suggest Saudi Arabia is leading the bid for the 2034 FIFA World Cup, showcasing their ambition to position themselves as a dominant force in international sports. Saudi Minister of Sport, Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Faisal, articulated the nation’s aspirations, stating that hosting the event in 2034 would signify a monumental achievement in their journey to become a leading nation in world sport.
