Indonesian Football Association president Erik Tohir said his country is considering submitting a possible joint bid with Australia to host the 2034 World Cup finals..

Several Australian and Indonesian media quoted Duhir as saying on Wednesday: “We are discussing with Australia about submitting (a trophy).”

He added that Malaysia and Singapore could be co-hosts in the joint file.

Saudi Arabia is considered the most likely candidate to host the 2034 World Cup, which Asian and Oceanian football confederations are vying for the honor of hosting.

Saudi Arabia last week submitted an official bid to host the 2034 World Cup, and no other country has yet shown official interest in hosting the tournament, with the International Football Federation (FIFA) setting an Oct. 31 deadline for nations. They want to submit their files to organize the World Cup.

Documents for a final bid must be submitted to FIFA by July 2024.

Dohir said he spoke with Australian Football Association officials about the merger efforts during the FIFA Rwanda conference last March.

Dohir, considered one of the most important ministers in the Indonesian government, added, “They expressed their desire to do the same to me. We were waiting for the Australian government to be serious about working with Indonesia.”

Last week, FIFA announced that the 2030 World Cup will be held in Morocco, Spain and Portugal, with the first three matches of that edition taking place in Uruguay, Argentina and Paraguay, as part of the 100th anniversary celebrations of the opening. First World Cup.
