The Saudi Football Association announced on Monday that it had sent a letter requesting the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s official candidacy to host the 2034 World Cup to FIFA, noting that it had received the support of 70 federations within 72 hours.

Last Wednesday, Saudi Arabia announced its intention to nominate to host the 2034 edition of the global football event, following FIFA’s announcement that it had chosen Morocco, Spain and Portugal to host the 2030 edition with three matches in Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay in commemoration of the centenary of the continental wedding, the first edition of which was held in 1930 in Uruguay and opened. Nominations are open for the continents of Asia and Oceania to organize the 2034 edition.

The Saudi Federation explained in a statement on its official website that “the letter represents an official confirmation of the Kingdom’s commitment to go through the nomination process organized by FIFA.”

He added that the Kingdom “intends in its candidacy (…) to organize an exceptional version of the tournament that reflects the Kingdom’s keenness to invest in the development of football, and at the same time provide football experiences that carry passion for players, officials and fans.”
