North African sides namely Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia are considering a joint 2030 World Cup bid according to government officials.
Morocco recently lost the 2026 World Cup hosting rights to the joint bid of Canada, Mexico and the United States of America.
Algeria Sports Minister Mohamed Hattab revealed plans about a possible World Cup joint bid.
In his words via ESPN, Hattab told reporters that: “Algeria will study a possible candidacy of the Maghreb countries for the organisation of the World Cup.”
“An application from the Maghreb with Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia can be achieved through existing infrastructure as well as future projects.
“When we look at our cities, with the sporting and cultural facilities present, we are able to consider that we can host major world events.” He concluded.
Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay have already launched a South American bid to host the 2030 last year as they want to use it to mark the 100th year (centenary) anniversary of the first edition hosted by Uruguay in 1930.
There’s is a rumoured potential 2030 World Cup bid from England though nothing has been made official.
A FIFA vote to decide the winner of the hosting right won’t hold before 2022, when the World Cup will be played in Qatar.
