Saudi Arabia is reportedly set to announce a joint bid with Greece and Egypt to host the 2030 World Cup reports Prime Business Africa.

The 2002 World Cup in Qatar will be the first to be played in the winter between November 20 and December 18 and a 2030 World Cup could mark the second time the tournament will hold in the Arab nations.

The Times scooped that an announcement is imminent and that Saudi Arabia would be the lead contributor.

The Gulf nation would pay for at least some of the other two countries’ costs.

To avoid blazing hot summer conditions, the tournament would again be played during the colder months.

A successful bid for the three nations would inadvertently mean another break in the Premier League and other top leagues around Europe.

The 2002 FIFA World Cup in Korea and Japan was the first time that the tournament would be co-hosted.
