Football Association preparing bid to host 2030 World Cup



The Football Association is preparing a bid to host the 2030 World Cup, it has been announced.
 
The governing body's board has agreed to conduct "feasibility work" on a potential bid.
 
 
If the bid is successful, 2030 would be the first World Cup in England for 64 years and the first major tournament for 34 years (the semi-finals and final of Euro 2020 are at Wembley).


One option is for a joint bid with the other home nations.


The UK government has said it would support a joint bid led by England.


Any bid would need to secure the nomination of UEFA and the support of a majority of FIFA's 211 member nations.


A final decision on whether to bid will be made next year.
