Ghana Set Sight on 2038 World Cup Bid with Other West African Nations


Ghana has set its sights on 2038 to host the Fifa World Cup edition in Collaboration with interested West African Countries.


Mean while, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay have confirmed a joint bid to host the tournament 2030.


The Presidents of the three South American nations confirmed the joint bid at an announcement in Buenos Aires that was attended by Fifa president Gianni Infantino.


According to Argentinian President Mauricio Macri, the bid would comprise six or eight stadia in Argentina and two or three venues in Paraguay and Uruguay.


 Tabare Vazquez, the President of Uruguay, said that a joint bid with Argentina had been under discussion since a trip by Macri to Montevideo in January last year.


So Ghana decided to bid for 2038.
 Ghana’s proposal has been developed by the National Development Planning Commission.


The commission’s director general, Nii Moi Thompson, told Metro TV that the bid would be dependent on the country fulfilling other financial and infrastructure targets that have been set out in the broader plan, which was submitted to the government last month and their agreement with interested West African countries.


To support such a bid, a new venue called the Black Star Stadium is set to be built, although details of the development remain sketchy. Second, we shall open discussion with Nigeria, Cote D'Ivoire, Senegal and possibly Benin Republic and Togo... to find out which two other countries can collaborate and walk in line with our plans.
