Saudi Arabia will bid for 2034 FIFA World Cup
For football fans, the Saudi Football Association wants to give them an “unprecedented experience” by using all of their resources and knowledge. Thus, the plan to host the 2034 FIFA World Cup comes after Saudi Arabia’s national football team played in six previous World Cups, most recently the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Also, as a country that loves football, this announcement is a natural and important next step.
So, it also shows how successful the Kingdom is becoming, said Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki al-Faisal, Minister of Sports and Chairman of the Saudi Olympic and Paralympic Committee. Over 50 foreign sports events have been held successfully in the Kingdom since 2018. These have included football, motorsports, golf, electronic sports, tennis, and equestrian tournaments.
