ASEAN chief reveals bid idea for 2030 World Cup

ASEAN will bid to host the 2030 World Cup, following an agreement by member state foreign ministers, Surin Putsuwan, the bloc’s Secretary General, said yesterday. “As a part of Community building efforts, ASEAN FMs agreed to propose to enter a competition to JOINTLY host the Football World Cup in 2030,” Surin said via Twitter. Koy Kuong, Cambodia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman, could not be reached for comment yesterday. Last month, the world football governing body FIFA voted to award World Cup hosting honours to Russia for 2018 and Qatar for 2022. The competition will next be held in Brazil in 2014.
