Argentina and Uruguay bid for 2030 FIFA World Cup to celebrate 100th year

Government representatives of Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, and Chile are working on a four-nation bid for the 2030 World Cup. Next month, the group will gather in Montevideo, Uruguay, to discuss financing the campaign.

Uruguay hosted the first-ever World Cup in 1930 at Montevideo's Centenario stadium.

“‘Centenario' is a luxury in the (World Cup) story and it is a big thing in football history,” said CONMEBOL president Alejandro Dominguez back in April.

“We think we are going to do the whole World Cup in South America,” he added. UEFA and CONMEBOL opened an office in London last April to help build support for the event.

Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay ensure proper infrastructure and beautiful stadiums. Paraguay, however, could need some significant upgrades to its venues.
