The 2030 FIFA World Cup will be held in six countries across three continents. One of the host nations will be Spain, and Paris Saint-Germain manager Luis Enrique was asked about the tournament seven years from now.
FIFA announced this week that Morocco, Spain, and Portugal were named hosts of the 2030 tournament. Meanwhile, Uruguay, Argentina, and Paraguay will also host the opening matches to mark the tournament’s centenary.
Enrique notes that he’s excited to see his home country serve as host to football’s biggest tournament.
“Inauguration games in South America, I think it’s because it’s the anniversary,” Enrique told reporters on Saturday (h/t Paris Fans). “For the players, travel will impact recovery, but as a Spaniard, there are good characteristics.
“I am very happy that the World Cup will occur partly in my country in partnership, particularly with Morocco and Portugal. It’s quite positive.”
All eyes will be on these six nations after the 2026 edition of the tournament. North America, with Canada, Mexico, and the United States, will serve as host nations.
Nonetheless, it will be the first tournament in which the pool of teams will be expanded to 48 by FIFA, so there will be plenty of trial and error to see how the entire situation plays out.
