World Cup 2030: Six countries, five time zones, three continents, two seasons, one tournament

Six countries. Five time zones. Three continents. Two different seasons. One World Cup.

The proposed plans for the 2030 tournament – to be held in South America, Africa and Europe – are difficult to imagine as a reality.

It will be the first time a World Cup has been played on more than one continent – 2002 was the only previous event with more than one host in neighbouring countries South Korea and Japan.

That will change when the USA, Mexico and Canada host in 2026 – but that will not match the scale of the 2030 World Cup.

Spain, Portugal and Morocco have been named as co-hosts, yet the opening three matches will take place in Uruguay, Argentina and Paraguay to mark the World Cup’s centenary.
