Spanish FA confirm joint 2030 World Cup bid with Portugal

The Spanish FA, the RFEF, has confirmed they are bidding to host the 2030 World Cup with Portugal.

The organisation confirmed in a statement this morning that following discussions with their Portuguese counterparts, they will be beginning analysis into the feasibility of a joint bid in the near future.

The official line continued that both organisations would now present their case to each government, in order to proceed to the next stage, as their decisions will be vital in confirming whether or not an official bid can be submitted to FIFA.

Currently there are only three confirmed bids for the tournament, two of them joint ventures, including Uruguay, Argentina, Paraguay and Chile and a UEFA combined bid from Romania, Greece, Serbia and Bulgaria, and a solo bid from Morocco.

There is also reported to be growing interest in a UK-Republic of Ireland bid, although that is yet to be made official.
