The Saudi Arabian football federation said:

The bid “intends to deliver a world-class tournament and will draw inspiration from Saudi Arabia’s ongoing social and economic transformation and the country’s deep-rooted passion for football”

The announcement of this bid follows Qatar’s hosting of the inaugural Middle East World Cup one year ago. During that tournament, the Saudi national team achieved a remarkable group stage triumph against the eventual champions, Argentina.

The Saudi announcement was made shortly after FIFA, the global governing body for football, unveiled its plans for the 2030 World Cup and extended an invitation to nations within the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) to submit bids for the 2034 tournament. This move came right after the Qatar World Cup, during which Saudi Arabia secured the services of Cristiano Ronaldo to compete in the Saudi Pro League.

This marked the beginning of a trend where several top-tier athletes were enticed by lucrative salaries to join the world’s largest crude oil exporting nation. Sports plays a pivotal role in Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s Vision 2030 reform agenda, which aims to reshape Saudi Arabia into a prominent tourism and business destination while steering the economy away from its dependency on fossil fuels.
