Thailand will lead a joint bid with four other ASEAN nations to host the 2034 FIFA World Cup.

The move was agreed at the fifth ASEAN Ministerial meeting on Sports in Manila on 9 October, reported the Bangkok Post. 

Apart from Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam are involved in the bid.

Other countries which have shown interest in the bid for for the 2034 World Cup include China, Egypt, Zimbabwe, Nigeria and a joint bid from New Zealand and Australia.

In 2022, Qatar will host the World Cup, 20 years after Korea Republic and Japan hosted the 2002 World Cup.

In August, Football Association of Singapore Vice-President Edwin Tong spoke about the possibility of Singapore making it to the World Cup in 2034.

Guess, it may well end up a reality if the bid is accepted by FIFA.
