Ukraine joined Spain and Portugal in their bid to host the 2030 FIFA World Cup
Ukraine has joined Spain and Portugal in their bid to host the 2030 FIFA World Cup, Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) informed on October 5, 2022, as Reuters reports.
They said the decision, announced at a news conference at the Swiss headquarters of UEFA, had the full support of European soccer’s governing body and also of the Spanish, Portuguese, and Ukrainian governments.
“Our bid is not an Iberian bid anymore, it’s a European bid,” President of the RFEF Luis Rubiales said.
“I’m convinced that now our bid is much better than before. Football is universal, and if it is capable of changing the life of people in so many ways, it should also be used for doing good,” Rubiales added.
