The Libyan Football Association supports Saudi Arabia’s bid to organize the 2034 World Cup

The Libyan Football Federation has announced its support for Saudi Arabia’s bid to host the 2034 World Cup. The Libyan Football Federation confirmed its full support for Saudi Arabia’s hosting of the global event via its Social Media account.

Saudi Arabia officially submitted its bid to FIFA to host the 2034 World Cup, competing with Australia, which is looking to submit a bid for the event. FIFA announced that Morocco, Portugal, and Spain won the right to host the 2030 World Cup, in addition to Uruguay, Argentina and Paraguay hosting one match each.

Libya itself had unsuccessfully attempted to host the first World Cup in Africa in 2010 which was eventually hosted by South Africa. Suadi Arabia on the other hand attempted this year to win the hosting of the 2030 World Cup through a joint bid with Egypt and Greece, that joint bid however was also unsuccessful. The bidding process for the 2034 World Cup began on October 4, 2023, and is set to use the same requirements as the 2030 World Cup. The deadline for confirmed interest from bidding associations is October 31, 2023.

Saudi Arabia is in a strong position to host the 2034 World Cup after FIFA announced that six countries across three continents will host the 2030 World Cup. Accordingly, FIFA’s confederation rotation policy means that only member associations from the Asian Football Confederation and Oceania Football Confederation are eligible to host the 2034 World Cup. If successful, Saudi Arabia would become the second Middle Eastern country to host the World Cup after Qatar which hosted the last tournament in 2022.
