South America launches global candidacy 2030 where it all began


South America launches global candidacy 2030 where it all began. Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and Paraguay on Tuesday made official the joint bid to host the 2030 World Cup in the same stadium where it was first played nearly a century ago. With Uruguayan President Luis Lacalle Pou as host, sports and political authorities of the four nations participated in the official act of launching the nomination at the Centenario stadium in Montevideo, which hosted the final of the first World Cup in 1930. “This is the dream of a continent, South America understands that football has to recognize, not play because there will be more World Cups, but 100 years will be fulfilled for the only time. And you have to go back to the house,” CONMEBOL President Alejandro Dominguez told a news conference. “I think the four federations have been very smart to propose going together,” said Uruguayan President Luis Lacalle Pou. “The reason for bringing it to South America is the 1930 World Cup and the celebration of 100 years. But together you have more strength.”
