By  Nov 03, 2018

Croatian football fans might not have far to travel to see their national team in action in the 2030 World Cup. A joint bid to host the 2030 FIFA World Cup has been put forward by Serbia, Romania, Greece and Bulgaria.

The Serbian President, Aleksandar Vucic, told the media on Friday that these four countries had come together to propose to host the 2030 FIFA World Cup.

Speaking to the media after a quadrilateral meeting in the Bulgarian city of Varna on Friday, Vucic said that the idea came from Greek Prime Mister Alexis Tsipras, and was agreed with the Prime Ministers of Bulgaria and Romania, Boyko Borisov and Viorica Dancila. The four countries also plan to bid for the 2028 European Championship, Vucic added.

Officially filed bids to host the 2030 World Cup so far include a joint Uruguay-Argentina-Paraguay bid, and another one by Algeria, Morocco, and Tunisia.

Croatia had their best ever World Cup showing this year in Russia where they reached the finals in Moscow and finished second to the winners France.
