2034 World Cup: Saudi Arabia set to host men’s tournament after Australia does not bid
It looks like the 2034 men’s World Cup will be heading to Saudi Arabia after Australia decided against bidding for the tournament.
Football Australia confirmed its decision only hours before Fifa’s deadline for declarations of interest on Tuesday.
Saudi Arabia is the only other nation to bid.
“We have reached the conclusion not to do so for the 2034 competition,” read a statement from Football Australia.
The 2026 World Cup will take place in the US, Mexico and Canada.
Morocco, Portugal and Spain will host the 2030 tournament, with matches also in Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay.
