Zimbabwe could launch an ambitious bid to host the 2034 World Cup despite their unstable economy, according to a report by Ventures. Zimbabwe’s Tourism and Hospitality minister, Walter Mzembi, is quoted as saying: “I spoke to FIFA president Sepp Blatter during the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa and he told me that it was possible for Zimbabwe to host the 2034 FIFA World Cup as long as we keep on having such big dreams and vision. “If we are to host the 2034 FIFA World Cup this is the right time to start marketing our country a safe tourist destination. Nothing can stop us.” He added: “Our idea is to have Harare as the host city but in collaboration with other major cities in the region like Maputo, Johannesburg, Gaborone and Lusaka. All these cities are within a one-and-a-half hour flight of each other and this would be in the spirit of our regional solidarity.”
