England 3/1 to bring football home with successful 2030 World Cup bid

Bookmaker Ladbrokes has gone 3/1 about England playing host to the 2030 World Cup after Prime Minister Theresa May reportedly backed the Football Association’s bid to bring football ‘home’.


England has not played host to a major international tournament since Euro 96 and has not entertained a World Cup since 1966, but a spokesman for the PM has confirmed the government are open to getting behind a bid to bring the 2030 World Cup to these shores.

“We are happy to sit down with football bodies to discuss any proposals they might have to bid for the World Cup,” said a spokesman for the Prime Minister.

“We have a superb track record for putting on major sporting events and we have the stadiums, infrastructure and experience to deliver should a bid be successful.”

So while the England national team may have failed to ‘bring football home’ from the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the bookmakers are now pricing up the possibility of the FA bringing it ‘home’ in 2030 by winning the race to host the tournament, and Ladbrokes is 3/1 about that happening.

“Qatar host the next World Cup, followed by Canada, Mexico, and the United States in 2026,” Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati told Bettingpro.com. “The circulation should end up back in Europe at that stage and England haven’t hosted the tournament since 1966.

“The FA infamously only received three votes the last time they made a bid, but this time around it could all be very different. A successful England bid for the 2030 World Cup has never looked more likely and football could finally be coming home.”
