Saudi Arabia will almost certainly host the 2034 FIFA World Cup after Australia has announced they will not bid to host the tournament.

Saudi Arabia announced it would bid for 2034 only minutes after FIFA's invitation for bids from Asia and Oceania earlier this month.

Only Asia or Oceania could bid for 2034 after FIFA accepted only one candidate for 2030: a six-country bid spread across three confederations: Europe, Africa and South America.
