European football boss Aleksander Ceferin wants only one European bid to host the 2030 World Cup, he said on Friday, adding that a British bid would be a “wise idea”.

The English Football Association said at the start of this month that it was carrying out a study into the feasibility of hosting the tournament, Reuters wrote.

While the FA has not directly addressed the possibility of a joint bid with other parts of the United Kingdom, it is likely that their study will look into the potential benefits of such an approach - given the World Cup will expand to 48 teams in 2026. “I’ve said many times that, after all these years, it is time for that part of Europe to get the World Cup... the only thing I will insist is that we will have only one European bid,” Ceferin told reporters on Friday.

Asked about a potential British bid, he said: “It would be a wise idea - the infrastructure in the UK is very good.”
