Kuantan, MINA –Three ASEAN countries, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam may put in a bid to host World Cup 2034, Bernama reported.
FIFA Executive Committee member Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah Sultan Ahmad Shah said, should any of the countries be successful, Malaysia might have the opportunity to co-host, if the Football AsBBsociation of Malaysia (FAM) and the government were agreeable.
“The opportunity for us (ASEAN) to bid conceivably has its strengths because three to four countries can share, as what USA, Mexico and Canada did to win the bid and become the 2026 host.
“In fact the time has come for countries in the ASEAN region to be given the opportunity. In this regard, we hope the infrastructure and strength of ASEAN’s football teams would have been consolidated by then.
“We have 16 years, which should be sufficient,” he said when met at the Aidilfitri Open House at Istana Abdulaziz here Saturday..(T/RS5/RS1)
