Saudi Arabia want to host 2034 World Cup

 Saudi Arabia announced it took the second step to bid for 2034 World Cup by submitting a letter of intent to host the event to world soc­cer governing body FIFA on Monday.

“Last week we announced our ambitions to host the 2034 FIFA World Cup, and this official sub­mission continues our journey to make the dreams of our people a reality,” Yasser Al Misehal, President of the Saudi Arabian

 Football Federation SAFF, said in a statement.

“We are extremely committed to presenting the most compet­itive bid possible that will also help unite the world through football,” he added.

SAFF said that once they declared their intention on Wednesday to bid for the tour­nament, “over 70 FIFA Member Associations from across dif­ferent continents have publicly pledged their support for the Kingdom.”

Last week, FIFA named Morocco, Spain and Portugal as hosts of the 2030 World Cup, with Uruguay, Argentina and Paraguay hosting the opening matches to mark the tourna­ment’s centenary.-Reuters
