2030 FIFA World Cup Taking Place Across Six Countries & Three Continents

The World Cup will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2030, and FIFA is marking the occasion in style! The hosts of the 2030 FIFA World Cup have been announced, and it’s set to take place across six countries in three different continents – Africa, Europe, and South America. FIFA’s president Gianni Infantino announced their decision to take this tournament around the world in 2030, explaining they chose to go down this road because football is what unites us in a divided world. "In 2030, we will have a unique global footprint, three continents – Africa, Europe, and South America - six countries - Argentina, Morocco, Paraguay, Portugal, Spain, and Uruguay - welcoming and uniting the world while celebrating together the beautiful game,” said Infantino. The 2030 FIFA World Cup will kick off where it all started, with opening matches taking place in South America, as a way of honoring 100 years since the inaugural tournament in Montevideo, Uruguay. Following games in Uruguay, Argentina, and Paraguay, the tournament will move to North Africa and Europe. We still have one more FIFA World Cup to look forward to before this tournament celebrates its 100th anniversary. FIFA World Cup 26 will take place in June and July 2026, with Canada, Mexico, and the United States serving as hosts.
