The Minister of Sports of Saudi Arabia, Abdulaziz bin Turki Al-Faisal, commented on the country's intentions to host the 2034 World Cup. His words were reported by the BBC.

'Every country has room for improvement because no one is perfect. We acknowledge that. Certain measures help us reform for a better future for all.

In our kingdom, we welcome everyone. Just like in any other country, we have rules and norms that everyone must adhere to and respect. When we come to the UK, we respect the rules and norms, whether we believe in them or not.

It's a theory that FIFA is creating all conditions for our country to host the World Cup in 2034. The rules for bidding were clear to everyone, and no one objected to them, so I don't think there was any lack of transparency from FIFA.

We were just ready for this process, and others perhaps were not. That's not our fault.

As can be seen from the statement of over 125 federations supporting our bid, the world also wants us to host the World Cup in 2034,' - said Prince Abdulaziz.

It is expected that Saudi Arabia will host the World Cup, being the only country to submit a bid within FIFA's set deadline of October 31, 2023.
