FIFA has unveiled Morocco, Spain, and Portugal as the chosen hosts for the 2030 FIFA World Cup.
The 2030 World Cup, the tournament’s second iteration under this new arrangement, will feature an expanded roster of 48 nations competing.
A significant shift occurred with the 2026 edition, where Canada, the USA, and Mexico teamed up as co-hosts, introducing the 48-nation format, a departure from the previous 32-nation competition.
Today’s announcement also revealed that the inaugural three matches of the 2030 World Cup will take place in Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay, in commemoration of the World Cup’s centennial celebration. Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay will each host one game, kicking off this special competition format.
This exciting development comes on the heels of Morocco securing the hosting rights for the 2025 CAF African Cup of Nations, a triumph that had not occurred since Cameroon claimed the title for the second time in 1988.
Adding to their accolades, Argentina currently holds the title of reigning world champion, having emerged victorious in a penalty shootout against France during the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
