Western Portugal and Morocco will officially join the Olympic Games in 2030.
On November 22, at the Iberia summit in Valladolid, Spain, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa reached an agreement, and the two sides will jointly run with the African country of Morocco for the World Cup in 2030.
On November 19, the Spanish Prime Minister visited Morocco and met with King Mohamed VI. At the next press conference, Pedro Sanchez said: "King very much accepts, the three countries can submit tender documents together, I think we may be very competitive, which makes us a lot of hope."
After the Iberian summit of the 21st century, Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa also voiced his support for the three countries to jointly run for the World Cup.
Historically, the World Cup in Korea and Japan in 2002 was the first World Cup to host more than one country. The World Cup in 2026 will be the first World Cup to be hosted by three countries. If Spain, Portugal and Morocco successfully took part in the World Cup in 2030, it will be the first World Cup to be organized on two continents.
