South America, Europe and Africa to host FIFA 2030 World Cup


The 2030 World Cup will be held in three different continents with South America, Europe and Africa all hosting games.

Alejandro Dominguez, the President of CONMEBOL, announced on Wednesday that the opening games of the 2030 World Cup will be held in Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay. He added that there would be three inauguration games, one in each country, with Uruguay hosting the first game.

Paraguay FA President Robert Harrison has also stated that the three South American countries are qualified for the World Cup.

FIFA have announced that the rest of the 2030 World Cup will be played in Spain, Portugal and Morocco. FIFA President Gianni Infantino announced the following on Wednesday:

“In a divided world, FIFA and football are uniting. The FIFA Council, representing the entire world of football, unanimously agreed to celebrate the centenary of the FIFA World Cup, whose first edition was played in Uruguay in 1930, in the most appropriate way. As a result, a celebration will take place in South America and three South American countries – Uruguay, Argentina and Paraguay – will organise one match each of the FIFA World Cup 2030. The first of these three matches will of course be played at the stadium where it all began, in Montevideo’s mythical Estádio Centenário, precisely to celebrate the centenary edition of the FIFA World Cup.

“The FIFA Council also agreed unanimously that the only bid to host the FIFA World Cup 2030 will be the joint bid of Morocco, Portugal and Spain. Two continents – Africa and Europe – united not only in a celebration of football but also in providing unique social and cultural cohesion. What a great message of peace, tolerance and inclusion.

“In 2030, we will have a unique global footprint, three continents – Africa, Europe and South America – six countries – Argentina, Morocco, Paraguay, Portugal, Spain and Uruguay – welcoming and uniting the world while celebrating together the beautiful game, the centenary and the FIFA World Cup.”


  1. Wo maybe Messi and Di Maria i want that Lautaro Julian Dybala trio so badly, against a park the bus Paraguay even with Nico. Nico Gonzalez Enzo Macallister Dybala Julian Alvarez Lautaro.

  2. Frankly, I don’t get it why Argentina should host just one game on home soil if the rest of the WC will be played in Europe/Morocco. It makes sense for Uruguay to celebrate 100 yrs, but AFA would be completely lunatic to make such an arrangement now.

  3. Enganche, you asked the other day about Simon playing as a right back in River. Honestly “meh” is all I can say, definitely not NT material for a RB based on what I’ve seen so far. He’s really only playing there because of the desperation we have in that role. Casco getting older and playing worse and Herrera being a disaster (though I’ll give it to him his superclasico was respectable). River has disproportionately been buying midfielder after midfieler after midfielder and we have not addressed the looming obvious missing part of our squad which is a 4. Simon has been okay at the attacking role that being a right back entails but nothing worthy of permanency in that position when it comes to the defensive side. There’s a reason Demichelis opted for Herrera in the superclasico, a bad game from Simon as a 4 in the bombonera would have really affected him

      • Disadvantage for Argentina that will have to cross the Atlantic with jetlag and all that with only days to recover while all the big European teams most likely will play in Sp/Po/Mo.

        • Thats a good point and should be taken into consideration, especially in a world cup where up to 8 games played is possible. Unless the World Cup opens up in South America a week before it starts in Europe?
