Spain and Portugal reveal initial 15 stadiums for 2030 World Cup bid


Jul.15 – The stadiums of Barcelona, ​​Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid are among those looking to host matches if Spain and Portugal win the vote to host the 2030 World Cup.

A total of 15 stadiums have offered to be among the 11 Spanish venues set to host matches if the Iberian bid is successful in the May 2024 ballot. Portugal would set up three stadiums.

“This is the most important project that Spain will undertake in the next few years,” Spanish FA president Luis Rubiales said after a meeting to present the list of venues and discuss the nations’ bid.

The evaluation of the Spanish host cities will take place until November, with no fixed date for the announcement of the 11 sites that will be selected for the final presentation of the candidacy.

Many of them will have to undertake considerable renovations since one of the fundamental requirements is to have a minimum capacity of 40,000 something only seven currently meet.

FIFA has yet to officially release official bidding requirements for 2030, but it will include 48 nations, like the 2026 tournament in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

The provisional Spanish list which will be reduced to 11 is as follows:

Balaidos — Vigo

Riazor — A Coruña

El Molinon — Gijon

San Mamés — Bilbao

Anoeta — San Sebastian

La Romareda — Zaragoza

Camp Nou — Barcelona

RCDE Stadium — Cornellá-El Prat (Barcelona)

Santiago Bernabéu — Madrid


Nuevo Mestalla — Valencia

Nueva Condomina — Murcia

La Cartuja — Seville

La Rosaleda — Málaga

Gran Canaria — Las Palmas (Canary Islands)
