Egypt aiming to host 2030 World Cup, 2032 Olympic Games
Egyptian Minister of Youth and Sports Ashraf Sobhi has revealed that Egypt are planning on hosting the 2030 World Cup and the 2032 Olympic Games.
Ashraf Sobhi was appointed sports minister last month after Khaled Abdelaziz stepped down from his position.
He announced on Tuesday that Egypt are looking to host the 2030 World Cup and the 2032 Olympic Games for the first time in the country’s history.
“Our goal is to host the 2030 World Cup in Egypt and we will work on that in the upcoming period,” Sobhi said.
“We also want to win the hosting rights for the 2032 Olympic Games,” he added.
It’s worth mentioning that South Africa is the only African country to host a World Cup, when they beat Egypt and Morocco to the hosting rights in 2010.
The 2022 World Cup will take place in Qatar [first Arab country to host the tournament] and the 2026 version will be hosted in the United States, Mexico, and Canada.
Meanwhile, the Olympic Games are yet to take place in Africa, with the continent being the only one not to host the biggest sporting event in the world.
