Six years to the centenary of the FIFA World Cup, the 2030 FIFA World Cup organising committee has launched its slogan for the World Cup — ‘YallaVamos 2030‘. The event which took place in Lisbon on March 19th, showcased the bid’s pillars, narrative, website, social pages and video.

For the first time, three countries from two continents will host the competition, with Spain, Portugal and Morocco as host nations. 

The star of the presentation was the “YallaVamos 2030” bid’s visual identity. It drew inspiration from native art, a style that resonates with artists across all three countries and continents. The design features bold, colourful arcs in red, yellow, green, and blue. Flags of the bidding nations are reflected in the identity.
