South Korea urge talks on joint World Cup

  • Print


South Korea's football association Tuesday said it wanted talks with China and Japan about a joint bid to host the 2030 World Cup along with North Korea, an initiative aimed at easing tensions in the region.
The South's new President Moon Jae-In first proposed the ambitious idea to FIFA chief Gianni Infantino in a meeting Monday, although Korean officials acknowledge China is likely to be lukewarm.
"We want to start discussions with China and Japan on this idea," a spokesman for the Korea Football Association (KFA) Cho Jun-Heon told AFP.
