The Kingdom has scored the ultimate goal.
Football fanatics, get your jerseys ready because the Middle East is gearing up for an epic showdown. Several weeks ago, Saudi Arabia officially announced its bid to host the FIFA World Cup in 2034. Australia was the other contender making the bid. But in a shocking turn of events, Australia has decided to back out of the race, making Saudi Arabia the sole contender to host the world’s most popular sporting event.
Just hours before FIFA’s deadline for declarations of interest, Football Australia confirmed that they would not be bidding to host the FIFA World Cup 2034. The decision left many in shock, especially considering Australia’s love for sports, including their passion for football. In a short statement, Football Australia said, “We have reached the conclusion not to do so for the 2034 competition.”
With Australia out of the picture, all eyes turned to Saudi Arabia. The Saudi Arabian Football Association is determined to put the Kingdom on the sporting map by hosting the FIFA World Cup 2034. This isn’t the first time Saudi Arabia has set its sights on international sporting events, and they’ve got a track record of success with the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.
In fact, the Kingdom is currently gearing up to host the 2023 FIFA Club World Cup in Jeddah from 12 to 22 December. Football fans worldwide are eagerly looking forward to this tournament, and it’s serving as a precursor to what’s to come at FIFA World Cup 2034.
With Australia out of the competition, the Middle East is going to be the epicentre of football fever in 2034 — once again. After the FIFA World Cup in Qatar last year, we can’t wait to see what Saudi Arabia has in store.
