South America appealed to its history to convince Infantino

South Americain the race for the election of the seat of World Cup 2030, where it competes with Spain, Portugal and Ukraine, knows that its main plot is history. In eight years the centenary of the first World Cup, held in Uruguay in 1930, will be celebrated, and it aims to return to where it all began in 2030.

Gianni Infantino, president of FIFA, traveled to Asunción to attend the inauguration of the Women’s High Performance Center of the Paraguayan League. In an action where the president of the Paraguayan Republic, Mario Abdo Benítez, the president of Conmebol, Alejandro Domínguez and the 10 presidents of the South American Federations, the theme ‘World Cup 2030’ cannot be without.

Domínguez “rushed” the FIFA president, seeking his support for the elections of Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and Paraguay as the venue for 2030.

“One always fights for the most luxurious, the most beautiful and the most modern, but we would not have been here, nor the World Cup what it is, nor your position (as president of FIFA), Gianni (Infantino), nor mine, neither to Robert (Harrison, president of the Paraguayan Football League), nor to any of them who are very important (the other presidents of South American football), if many years ago, those who preceded us, Rimet and all leaders who dreamed of holding the World Cup and a country like Uruguay that built a stadium in history (Montevideo’s Centennial), with immigrants and said that the World Cup could be held. If they didn’t dream, there wouldn’t be If brought we have these leaders today, they will not understand the magnitude of what FIFA, UEFA, CONMEBOL, and all the confederations have achieved, if they did not make the first championship a reality,” said President Alejandro Dom inguez.

Centennial is just one

Domínguez doubled the bet and turned to Infantino again. “I think it is worthy that FIFA itself assumes the responsibility of carrying out a gesture to honor that memory. There are luxurious stadiums, there are modern stadiums, there are countries that can make a replica of the Centenario (Stadium), but Centenario there. is only one in the World. History cannot be bought by money, luxury does not make history. What we can promise the world is to return to its origins and show where it was born and how it is played. I invite you to hold a World Cup here in 2030, where It is played how it was played in 1930, with the same outfits, and not fighting luxuries. It will return to its essence. South America is ready, the 4 countries is ready to bring the World Cup to 2030”.

They support his re-election to the head of FIFA

Infantino’s presence in South America is also worthy for the 10 South American Federations to declare their support for the re-election of the current FIFA president in March 2023.

The 2030 World Cup, which will mark the hundredth anniversary of the First World Cup, has two candidates: Spain, Portugal and Ukraine, and, on the other hand, the 4 South Americans, Uruguay, Argentina, Paraguay and Chile. On May 23, candidacies must be formally presented, and by the end of 2024, the chosen place will be announced.
