Myanmar and Thailand have expressed interest in co-hosting the Under-20 World Cup in 2021 while Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and United Arab Emirates are considering a three-way joint bid, global soccer body FIFA said on Thursday.

FIFA said it had also received expressions of interest from Indonesia, Peru and Brazil to host individually. The deadline to formally submit bids is Aug. 30 with the hosts expected to be chosen by the end of the year.

Saudi Arabia hosted the two-yearly tournament on its own in 1989 and the United Arab Emirates in 2003. Poland will stage this year’s event.
