AsemconnectVietnam - Foreign ministers of ASEAN member countries agreed to launch a joint bid to host the World Cup 2034 - the biggest sporting event on the planet, according to Thailand’s Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai.
He revealed the information after a meeting with his counterparts from member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in Bangkok on June 22.
The proposal was made by the ASEAN foreign ministers and submitted to the 34th ASEAN Summit held in Bangkok from June 22 to 23, he said.
The idea of co-hosting the World Cup 2034 was initiated by Somyot Poompanmoang, President of the Football Association of Thailand.
Somyot initially suggested that Thailand and Indonesia would try to enter a bid for the 2034 football tournament. Egypt reportedly is also keen to host the event in 2034.
Japan and the Republic of Korea successfully co-hosted the World Cup finals in 2002. The 2026 World Cup will be jointly staged by the US, Canada and Mexico.
