Australia, Indonesia plans 2034 FIFA World Cup joint bid

MELBOURNE, Australia: Australia and Indonesia held discussions on a joint bid for the 2034 FIFA World Cup.

The revelation came only days after Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said in Bangkok that 10 countries from the ASEAN bloc, including Indonesia, would bid for 2034.

It wasn't known on the development from the talks between Australia and Indonesia, but statements from both federations suggested that talks were preliminary.

“Football Federation Australia is in very early discussions with the Indonesian Football Association about a joint bid for the 2034 FIFA World Cup. We welcome the opportunity to explore this further with other football associations in the region,” FFA chief executive David Gallop said. “A FIFA World Cup in south-east Asia would be a wonderful event in a populous and passionate part of the football globe.”
