Ghana[edit | edit source]
Ghana is planning an ambitious-bid to stage the 2038 FIFA World Cup as part of its 40-year national development plan, developed by the National Development Planning Commission (NDPC). The Director-General of the NDPC, Dr. Nii Moi Thompson in an interview, revealed that the bid is dependent on the country fulfilling other financial and infrastructure targets set in the draft National Development Plan which was handed over to the government last month. According to Dr. Thompson, as part of the long-term development plan, Ghana plans to host international events like the World Cup and Olympic Games. As part of the 40-year development plan, a new stadium called the “Black Star Stadium” will be constructed with the “best 21st Century technology while the roof would be made up of solar panels”. The stadium will be connected to road and rail networks.” Ghana has not hosted a Fifa World tournament or the Olympic Games in its 60-year history.
Australia and/or New Zealand[edit | edit source]
Australia have previously expressed interest in hosting a World cup in years to come after losing the 2018 bid and 2022 bid to Qatar. Australia would have most of the compulsory stadiums to host a world cup including the 100,000 seater Melbourne Cricket Ground. Many Australians claim the world cup is the only thing missing from their sporting history. New Zealand Football CEO members have stated a possible joint bid with Australia, with a similar concept to the United USA, Mexico and Canada World Cup 2026 bid which was successful.
