Uruguay believes in chance to host 2030 World Cup

Thursday - June 14, 2018 1:12 pm , Category : SPORTS
Montevideo June 14 (IANS) The Uruguayan government has denied that the successful bid by Canada Mexico and the U.S. to host the 2026 World Cup had weakened the joint bid by Argentina Uruguay and Paraguay to host the 2030 edition.
"That the Confederation of North Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) will host the World Cup in 2026 does not harm the bid by Uruguay Argentina and Paraguay to organize this competition in 2030 " national secretary for sport Fernando Caceres declared on Wednesday reports Xinhua news agency.
Caceres added that the rotation of World Cups is not based on continents but confederations. Uruguay Argentina and Paraguay are part of the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL).
In 2030 the World Cup will be celebrating its 100th anniversary with Uruguay having hosted the first edition in 1930 and won the championship when they beat Argentina 4-2 in the final.
So far this is the only formal bid to have been lodged although there have been indications that England is preparing a bid while Morocco and Algeria may table a joint effort.
