FIFA President Gianni Infantino summarized the main decisions taken by the council of this organization, explaining in particular the spirit that led to the unanimous election of the Morocco-Spain-Portugal candidacy for the organization of the 2030 World Cup

The FIFA Council unanimously agreed that the joint candidacy of Morocco, Portugal and Spain will be the only one in competition. The good news was announced to the Moroccan people by King Mohammed VI. “What a magnificent message of peace, tolerance and inclusion,” Gianni Infantino commented in his video statement.

The president also announced that the FIFA Council unanimously decided to organize a centenary celebration ceremony in the capital of the country that hosted the first edition of the competition, that is, Montevideo, in Uruguay. Additionally, three matches of the 2030 World Cup will take place in Uruguay, Argentina and Paraguay.

"In a divided world, FIFA and football bring unity," said Gianni Infantino at the beginning of his statement.

«Three continents - Africa, Europe and South America - and SIX countries - Argentina, Morocco, Paraguay, Portugal, Spain and Uruguay - will welcome the world to celebrate together our sport, but also the FIFA World Cup and its centenary. This 2030 edition will therefore have a truly unique global resonance.
