Minister of Youth and Sports Ashraf Sobhy said that Egypt aims to host the 2030 FIFA World Cup and the 2032 Olympic Games as part of the ministry’s strategy to develop and grow the standard of Egyptian sports.
The minister’s comments came during a press conference held within the sports ministry.
Sobhy, however, stressed that Egypt has the financial and tangible abilities to organize major sporting events.
The last major tournament hosted by Egypt was in 2017 when the country hosted the FIBA Basketball U-17 World Cup in Cairo.
The press conference comes after a ministerial meeting held by President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi with Sobhy and Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly.
