The Egyptian Minister of Youth and Sports, Ashraf Sobhy, said that his country will seek to move towards hosting the World Cup in either 2030 or 2034.
In a telephone interview with Ahmed Moussa’s TV show “Ala Massoulity” (On My Responsibility), Sobhy said that Egypt will also prepare studies to work on the bid to host the 2036 Olympics.
“We will seek to host the World Cup in 2030 or 2034,” he added. “The matter is being carried out according to a study and serious steps, and we are working smart in order to make the matter a success.”
Sobhy said that “The FIFA has a direct role in following up on local federations, such as the Egyptian Football Association.”
“After electing a new board of directors for EFA, we do not have the legal right to remove the current board.”
Sobhy continued: “The general assembly of EFA has the right to choose the board of directors and remove any board of directors.”
