Last month, the English Football Association
announced plans to conduct a feasibility study along with
Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
The FAI confirmed it will be joining the study after "recent
positive discussions amongst all parties".
England, which hosted and won the 1966 World Cup, failed in bids
to host the event in 2006 and 2018.
The 2026 World Cup will be hosted jointly by the United States,
Mexico and Canada, while a South American tri-nation bid
involving Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay has already been
announced for 2030.
