Rocha Infantino summit: Spain still dreams of having twelve places at the 2030 World Cup

Pedro Rocha, president of the Spanish Football Federation, is scheduled to meet this week with FIFA president Gianni Infantino to talk at length about the 2030 World Cup That Spain will participate with Portugal and Morocco. The Rubiales case has caused paralysis within the federal structure that Rocha has been trying to unblock in recent months. The summit between Rocha and Infantino has a clear objective from the Spanish perspective. The federation still dreams of getting twelve places with the goal of the 2030 World Cup. This requires, first of all, that FIFA gives the green light for there to be 20 places. Although Portugal prefers 18 because it will have only three (Two in Lisbon and Porto) and not wanting to dilute its prestige (I also put forward reasons for sustainability), Rocha got Morocco’s support to expand the number of places to 20. In principle, the distribution will be as follows: 11 places for Spain, six for Morocco and three for Portugal.

However, Rocha hopes that the strict requirements of FIFA (hotel capacity for cities, transport, hospitals), which recently distributed a comprehensive dossier of 17 files establishing the organization’s rules, will put forward one place for Morocco. In this way, he will win the twelfth seat of Spain and will have to ‘fight’ less with the regional seats, which are the ones that may offer him support in the future if, as everything seems to indicate at this point, he decides to run for the presidency of the Federation. 15 candidate stadiums in Spain: Balaídos (Vigo), Riazor (lacoronia) – St Molinón (Gijon), San Mamés (Bilbao), Real Arena (San Sebastian), La Romareda (Zaragoza), Camp Nou (Barcelona), RCDE Stadium (Cornellà-El Prat), Santiago Bernabeu Stadium (Madrid), Metropolitano (Madrid), Nuevo Valencia (Valencia), Nueva Condomina (Murcia), La Cartuja (Seville), La Rosalida (Malaga) and Gran Canaria Stadium (Las Palmas). As reported on December 20, El Mullen ocean and the new condom are the ones with the fewest options, although nothing has been specified.

The calendar sets crucial milestones in 2024. In March, the nominating organizing committee, which met last week in Lisbon, should submit a draft, in theory, all the venues for the World Cup event should already be fixed. After that, the 2030 World Cup organization will have another nine months to work on the final presentation of the dossier that the FIFA Assembly must approve to make it official that Spain will be the main venue for the upcoming 2030 World Cup.
