There are predictions that Saudi Arabia, which is trying to host the 2034 FIFA World Cup, will also try to host the 2035 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
On the 20th, the BBC said, “We suggested to the Saudi Arabian government that it is time to host the 2035 Women’s World Cup
If we host the 2034 Men’s World Cup, it is possible to host the 2035 Women’s World Cup,” said Monica Stave, technical director of the Saudi Arabian women’s soccer team. reported his words. 카지노사이트위키
Director Stave was in charge of the Saudi Arabian women’s soccer team from 2021 to the beginning of this year, and moved to the position of technical director this year.
He attended the Leaders Week conference held in London, England and said, “The future of women’s sports in Saudi Arabia is bright,” and “Saudi Arabia’s women’s soccer should also strive to get close to the World Cup level.”
However, controversy is expected if Saudi Arabia, which is known to have limited women’s human rights, hosts the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Even when Saudi Arabia’s tourism agency brand ‘Visit Saudi’ signed a sponsorship contract with FIFA ahead of this year’s Women’s World Cup co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand, controversy arose that it did not fit the vision of the Women’s World Cup.
Currently, the venue for the next Women’s World Cup, 2027, has not yet been decided.
The possibility of Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium co-hosting the event, as well as the United States and Mexico, is being discussed, and Brazil and South Africa are also known to be interested in hosting the event.
The BBC predicted, “If Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium jointly host the 2027 Women’s World Cup, England may attempt to host the 2035 tournament instead of the 2031 tournament currently under review.”
Saudi Arabia is also competing with Australia, Jordan, and Uzbekistan in the bid to host the 2026 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Women’s Asian Cup.
Saudi Arabia has already been selected as the host country for the 2029 Winter Asian Games and the 2034 Summer Asian Games.
The Saudi Arabia’s professional soccer league is also recruiting world-class players such as Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal) and Karim Benzema (France), and LIV Golf, which was founded last year to compete with the PGA Tour, is also operated by Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund (PIF).
