An announcement from Bennett’s workplace stated the 2 males met Tuesday in Jerusalem, throughout which the soccer boss “raised the concept Israel would host the World Cup in 2030, along with different international locations within the area, led by the United Arab Emirates.”
Also current on the assembly had been former US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and former US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, the assertion stated.
Mnuchin and Friedman had been amongst a number of high-profile members of the Trump administration in Jerusalem this week, attending a sequence of occasions geared toward pushing ahead the Abraham Accords, a string of normalization agreements between Israel and Arab states.
The Abraham Accords is a normalization settlement introduced in a September 2020 deal, brokered by the US, to normalize relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco.
In 2026, the World Cup might be co-hosted between the US, Mexico and Canada after the North American bid simply beat Morocco in a vote in 2018.
It would be the first time the World Cup might be shared by three host nations.
