Ireland to join potential bid to co-host 2030 World Cup

The FAI are open to linking up with the English, Northern Irish, Welsh and Scottish associations after ‘positive discussions’.

    @Warren Mcdermott: England would have a better chance of hosting it if they included the other nations.they would get most of the matches and the final and the other countries would get group games, everyone is a winner. I can see the World Cup going like this.i am not saying this is a really strong bid, but joint submissions are where it’s at.

    @Warren Mcdermott: England and Scotland woukd be a good bid. Scotland have 3 that are ready to go with a little bit of improvement. This will be handy for senior executives. Who would want to move against a senior executive while the bid is in motion.

    @Warren Mcdermott: England don’t have enough football stadiums over the minimum requirements of 45,000 capacity , they would have to use Twickenham to make it to 10 stadiums,
    Wembley
    Old Trafford
    London stadium
    White Hart lane
    Emirates
    Eitihad
    Anfield
    St.james park
    Stadium of light
    They would need to add Scotland at a minimum unless Aston villa , Chelsea, Everton and Leeds done serious work to make up the numbers
    Without Scotland and villa and Leeds it would be a world cup in London, manchester/Liverpool and Newcastle/Sunderland
    Scotland has murrayfield , Hampden, Celtic park and ibrox all available , no need for the English and Scots to add Wales, Ireland and northern Ireland

    @Warren Mcdermott: Nevermind 2030, The 2026 World Cup’s qualification process has yet to be decided. The FIFA Council is expected to decide which hosts, if any, will receive automatic qualifications to the tournament. The United Bid personnel anticipated that all three host countries would be awarded automatic places….but it was not a condition of the bid.
