MNA Sports Desk: Uruguay and Argentina will officially launch their joint bid for the 2030 World Cup next week at a ceremony involving the country’s two leaders, Uruguay president Tabare Vazquez said Monday.
Vazquez said the formal announcement of this would take place during a visit to Uruguay by Argentine counterpart Mauricio Macri on August 30.
The move coincides with Uruguay’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against Argentina in Montevideo on August 31, reported news agency.
The joint bid between the two South American neighbours had long been signaled. Uruguay, the hosts of the inaugural World Cup in 1930, is hoping to win the rights to the tournament with Argentina to mark the centenary of the event.
