The matter of hosting the 2030 FIFA World Cup is a question for the home nations’ football associations to first consider. FIFA has yet to publish details of the bidding process and no assessment has been made but the government is very much willing to sit down with the relevant partners and discuss any proposal to bid for the World Cup in 2030.
