The distance between Saudi Arabia and Italia is 2,250 miles. Despite this distance, Saudi Arabia wants to co-host the 2030 FIFA World Cup with Italy! That’s what The Athletic reported yesterday. The most prestigious football tournament will be held in Qatar in 2022. As a rival to Qatar, Saudi Arabia does not want to miss the 2030 opportunity.
However, England has expressed a desire to co-host World Cup with Ireland. Argentina will also demand the tournament with neighboring Country Uruguay. Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia is on the scene.
Saudi Arabia is pouring a lot of money into the stadium to restore its image. It has spent more than 1.5 billion on various tournaments. In 2019, they hosted the world title match of heavyweight boxing between Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr. In addition to the European tour of golf, Formula One races have been organized for the first time. The Spanish Super Cup has been played past year by teams like Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Even the Italian Super Cup match has been played in Saudi Arabia. The tournament will return to Saudi Arabia next year, despite the suspension of the Corid-19 Pandemic. That is why they dream of hosting the FIFA World Cup with Italy.
