It is most likely for Britain and Ireland to make an official bid to host the 2030 World Cup, according to Football Association of Ireland (FAI) official Noel Mooney.

According to reports, the proposal would see Wembley host the final with matches to take place in Cardiff, Dublin, Glasgow and various English cities.

“The feasibility study is positive and there’s a sense that the right thing to do is go forward,” FAI general manager Mooney told The Times.

“This bid is out on the front foot and very well led by the guys from the English FA who gave a very strong presentation.

“It’s a chance to get a really credible bid and hopefully win it.

“I’d be very surprised if there’s not a very credible bid from Great Britain and Ireland.”
