ENGLAND WORLD CUP BID

18 Jun


 

england rejected in the first round of voting as russia won the bid for 2018 world cup. boris johnson, the london mayor, said fifa can’t last “in it’s current form.” england were confident that they had a fighting chance by securing seven votes in the first round, and this would have given the bid the chance for victory.¬†

 

 

 

a big concern was realised as holland-belgium secured a surprise first round victory, and coupled with media coverage of allegations against fifa undermined last minute lobbying efforts of prince william, beckham and direct support from the british prime minister.


votes were promised however, they never materialised!

 

 

 

the england 2018 and 2022 bid faired worse than the failed 2006 bid as that made the second round! england’s latest bid also boasted strong technical and economic features as claimed by fifa inspections.


david cameron spent three days in zurich to press england’s case, though it seemed that fifa clearly ignored his influence when it came to voting. “according to fifa we had the best technical bid and the strongest commercial bid and the country is passionate about football.”¬†prince william convinced fifa members to vote for england. prince william said that it had gone really well.

 

 

 

the success of russia and qatar in the selection process shows the bids with largest budgets and the lowest marks in fifa’s technical assessment. these facts have demonstrated the overriding requirements to successfully influence fifa in deciding where to host the world cup tournaments.


lord mawhinney, the honorary president of the football league said that the result raised questions over fifa’s process. “speaking personally, i am surprised we were eliminated in the first round, genuinely surprised, and for someone like me to be surprised raises questions. it seemed to be a legitimate question if the process should be different next time.”

 

 

 

england failed to convince warner and his two colleagues in the concacaf confederation to support their bid as voters abandoned england to support russia.


warner met with prince wiliam, david beckham and cameron and claimed to be backing the england bid however, a source confirmed concacaf had voted for russia to give them a better chance of securing the usa 2022 bid.
