Theresa May says the British government is in “full support” of the joint UK and Ireland to host the 2030 World Cup.

The UK Prime Minister said the football ­associations of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ireland are working on a proposal for FIFA.

May made this known while speaking on the eve of the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham.

“Following the excitement of this summer’s World Cup, the English FA are working together with the FAs of Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ireland to explore whether there could be a joint bid to host the 2030 World Cup,” she said.

“The decision on whether to bid is, of course, for the football associations to make.

“But if they decide to go forward, they can count on this government’s full support.”

The last time a major football tournament was held in the UK was Euro 1996.

The English FA had applied to host the 2018 World Cup but lost to Russia.

Uruguay, Argentina and Paraguay are also planning a joint bid for 2030.
