Tunisia might consider the idea of a North African joint bid to host the 2030 World Cup with Morocco and Algeria, reported the BBC on Thursday.

President of the Tunisian Football Federation Wadie Jary announced that Tunisia «haven’t received any official offers, but [it is] open to the idea and would like to see it happen».

Algeria’s sports minister, on the other hand, said last week that Algiers is studying the idea.

After Morocco failed to get enough votes to host the 2026 World Cup, losing to the North American joint bid, it announced that it is bidding to organize the 2030 international tournament.

«Algeria will study a possible candidacy of the Maghreb countries for the organization of the World Cup,» Algeria sports minister Mohamed Hattab told reporters.

«When we look at our cities, with the sporting and cultural facilities present, we are able to consider that we can host major world events.»
