Argentina-Uruguay hosted World Cup set for 2030 – Grondona

The long serving head of Argentine football, Julio Grondona, has claimed that FIFA wants his country to co-host the 2030 World Cup with Uruguay.

The idea of the two countries co-hosting the event has been mooted before to mark the 100th anniversary of the World Cup, first hosted and won by Uruguay.

“FIFA wishes to celebrate the World Cup’s 100 years in Argentina and Uruguay, I can confirm that,” Grondona told Argentina’s Radio 10.

“(An agreement) has been signed by the two associations (AFA and Uruguay’s AUF). What will we do?… We’ll see but surely something of quality.”
