Al Nassr and Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo has shown his support for Saudi Arabia in their big for the FIFA World Cup 2034.

Saudi Arabia will host the 25th edition of the World Cup as they were the only team to submit a bid before the deadline date, which was 31 October 2023.

FIFA restricted the hosting eligibility to Asia or Oceania after it decided to host the 2030 World Cup on three continents (Africa, Europe and South America). Observers characterised this as paving the path for Saudi Arabia to host the 2034 World Cup by substantially reducing potential competing host bids.

On 31 October 2023, FIFA president Gianni Infantino announced that Saudi Arabia would host the 2034 World Cup, making it the third time the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) has or will host the World Cup, after the 2002 tournament, which was hosted in Japan and South Korea and the 2022 tournament in Qatar, as well as the second time being held in the Middle East, after Qatar 2022.

Proud to support the dreams of a nation hoping to bring a FIFA World Cup to Saudi in 2034. We’re all #GrowingTogether!

Ronaldo moved to Saudi Arabia in 2023 from Manchester United. He joined Al Nassr in the Saudi Pro League. His side finished second in the league table and they are heading to another second-place finish in the league. The Portuguese forward has 53 goals in 59 appearances for his club. Recently, the 39-year-old won the Player of the Month for March and this was his fourth award in the Saudi Pro League.

Cristiano Ronaldo has played a huge role in the growth of the league. He has been the main reason why some of the big named decided to come to Saudi Arabia and play their football. The level of the league has also seen a significant increase.
