Ukraine joins Spain, Portugal bid to host World Cup 2030

The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) announced on Wednesday that Ukraine is joining their bid to host the 2030 FIFA World Cup.

"Our bid is not an Iberian bid anymore, it's a European bid," RFEF President Luis Rubiales said. "I'm convinced that now our bid is much better than before. Football is universal and if it is capable of changing the life of people in so many ways it should also be used for doing good," he added.

Spain and Portugal confirmed in 2020 that they would launch a bid to co-host the 2030 World Cup. The three European countries will compete for the event with Morocco and a collaboration between Egypt, Greece and Saudi Arabia, as well as a joint bid from Uruguay, Argentina, Paraguay and Chile.
