United Kingdom continues to aspire to the 2030 World Cup

United Kingdom continues to aspire to the 2030 World Cup

Despite the sanctions imposed on Monday by UEFA for the incidents surrounding the final of the Euro 2020 Cup in July in London, the United Kingdom remains confident of being able to secure the venue for the 2030 World Cup, in a joint project with Ireland, a British sports agency official said Tuesday.

“There are lessons to be learned, the FA (English Football Association) commissioned an audit (…) It is something very serious, but I do not think this means that our candidacy is damaged”, estimated Simon Morton, CEO of UK Sport.

Morton is part of a working group in charge of studying the eventual candidacy of the United Kingdom and Ireland to organize the World Cup, after Qatar hosts the appointment of 2022 and in 2026 it is played in the United States, Mexico and Canada.
