Saudi Arabia Submits Bid for 2034 FIFA World Cup
Saudi Arabia has taken a significant stride in its bid to host the 2034 FIFA World Cup by formally submitting a letter of intent to FIFA, the global soccer governing body, on Monday.
Yasser Al Misehal, the President of the Saudi Arabian Football Federation (SAFF), expressed their dedication to making this aspiration a reality, saying, "Last week we announced our ambitions to host the 2034 FIFA World Cup, and this official submission continues our journey to make the dreams of our people a reality." He also emphasized their commitment to presenting a highly competitive bid that would foster global unity through the love of football.
Notably, since the declaration of their intent to bid for the tournament, SAFF reported receiving widespread support. "Over 70 FIFA Member Associations from across different continents have publicly pledged their support for the Kingdom," they stated.
This development comes on the heels of FIFA's recent announcement of Morocco, Spain, and Portugal as hosts for the 2030 World Cup, with Uruguay, Argentina, and Paraguay set to host the opening matches to commemorate the tournament's centenary.
