Saudi Arabia is close to becoming the third Arab country to host the World Cup

Saudi Arabia took an additional step towards obtaining the honor of hosting the 2034 FIFA World Cup, after Australia decided on Tuesday not to submit its candidacy file.
The Saudi Football Association announced last month that it had sent a letter requesting the Kingdom’s official candidacy to host the 2034 World Cup to the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA).

Indonesia recently announced its desire to jointly organize the 2034 World Cup with Australia, but the Australian Federation issued an official statement today in which it confirmed that it is not a candidate to organize the event. The statement explained that the decision was taken after conducting a comprehensive evaluation of the idea, indicating that the Federation would like to focus on hosting other events such as the Asian Cup. Women's 2026 and 2029 Club World Cup.

Australia's announcement that it is not a candidate to host the 2034 World Cup makes Saudi Arabia alone in the race, which practically determines its victory in the organization, unless another country from Asia applies to run, which seems completely unlikely.

Earlier this year, Saudi Arabia was confirmed to host the 2027 Asian Cup in football, and last year it won the rights to host the 2029 Asian Winter Games.

It is noteworthy that Qatar was the first Arab country to host the finals of the most prestigious competition in the world in 2022, while Morocco, Spain and Portugal were chosen to host the 2030 FIFA World Cup finals, making Morocco the second Arab country to have the honor of hosting.
