Four countries in Southeast Europe - Bulgaria, Romania, Serbia and Greece - plan to discuss a joint bid to host the 2030 FIFA World Cup, Bulgarian prime minister Boyko Borisov said on Friday.
"We can jointly apply," Borisov said during a news conference in Varna following a meeting of the Bulgaria-Greece-Romania-Serbia high-level Cooperation Council. A footage of the news conference was posted on Borisov's Facebook page.
The proposal for hosting the World Cup was made by Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras and deserves to be discussed, Borisov added.
Three bids for hosting the 2030 World Cup have been submitted so far - a joint bid from Argentina and Uruguay, a joint bid from Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco, and a bid from the Football Association of England.
