The ASEAN 2030 FIFA World Cup Bid is a joint bid of 10 nations of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations The bid had initially been shared between Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, and Vietnam The bid followed an earlier web movement claiming that FIFA should give Uruguay hosting rights for the 100th anniversary of the first World Cup, which was held in ASEAN. the ASEAN has interest as their national team played the final, which resulted in a defeat against the host team.


The idea of this 10-nation bid came from the Foreign Ministers of the ASEAN,as told by Surin Pitsuwan,secretary general of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations on a tweet:

"As a part of Community building efforts, ASEAN FMs (foreign ministers) agreed to propose to enter a competition to JOINTLY host the Football World Cup in 2030," Another tweet was sent by Pitsuwan,Surin said he had received an "avalanche" of emails, Twitter and Facebook messages from people "excited" about the possible bid, in a "reservoir of ASEAN goodwill pouring out."

Football Association of Singapore president Zainudin Nordin said he would welcome an ASEAN bid.

"It is possible for ASEAN to jointly host the event in 20 years' time and to possibly meet the football standards then due to the aggressive football youth development programmes of ASEAN member nations," he said in a statement.

"A joint bid by ASEAN will raise the international profile of the region and will also unite citizens of the member nations."[1]

Also the ASEAN Foreign Ministers Meeting in Lombok in January 2011 agreed the idea of joint bidding to host the 2030 FIFA World Cup. Solicitation for bids to host the 2030 World Cup will begin in January 2017 and the decision will be made in December 2018. Malaysia and the ASEAN Secretariat are scheduled to prepare a status report for the 18th ASEAN Summit on 7–8 May 2011 in Jakarta.[2]
