Furthermore, this will be the first World Cup to be held across three continents and all six countries will qualify automatically for the tournament.

“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,” Gianni Infantino said.

The first-ever FIFA World Cup occurred in Uruguay in 1930, with the hosts claiming the game’s most coveted trophy in its inaugural form.
