In a surprising turn of events, Prime Minister of Greece Alexis Tsipras has informed the members of the press about Greece’s intention to create a joint file along with Serbia, Bulgaria and Romania for hosting the FIFA World Cup of 2030.
He pointed out that all four nations are currently in discussions regarding this bid, which will see them in close partnership over the course of the next ten years.
“This is an idea that we will further process all together,” Tsipras pointed out from Varna in Bulgaria.
Prime Minister of Bulgaria, Boyko Borissov shared this opinion: “It is worthwhile for the four countries to submit a proposal in order to co-host the Football World Championship of 2030.”
This joint bid has been a project that Minister of Sports Giorgos Vasiliadis has been working on for a while now from behind the scenes and finally the Prime Minister submitted the proposal towards the other three nations in Varna to see if it can go forward.
Should they agree then a file will be created that will need to fulfil the requirements set by the governing football body (FIFA) and later given for an evaluation.
If this bid is to move forward then it will be up against some tough opposition as there are other joint bids currently being discussed around the globe.
Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay are in talks as are the Republic of Ireland, Scotland, England and Northern Ireland to submit a common bid of their own.
This partnership could have the added effect of helping ease tensions between the nations as they strive for a common goal.
