Ireland and the UK are plotting a joint bid, but they’ll face stiff competition.

THE POSSIBILITY OF Ireland being part of a joint-bid to co-host football’s most prestigious competition is now a step closer.

Last night, the FAI expressed delight after the UK government committed to supporting the joint bid to host the 2030 World Cup.

Under the proposals, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England would put in a joint bid to host the tournament.

For Ireland to co-host the tournament in its centenary year, it may face stiff competition. China is apparently plotting a bid, while Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and Paraguay are also considering a joint-push to host the World Cup. 

The formal bidding process gets under way next year.

So, what do you think: Would you like to see Ireland co-host the 2030 World Cup?
