English FA set to consider bid for 2030 World Cup

The FA are believed to be weighing up a bid for the 2030 World Cup according to BBC Sport.

The Guardian also report today that the FA were buoyed by the voting system that seen USA, Canada and Mexico been selected for the 2026 tournament. The voting system involved a breakdown of how each of the members voted , a feature that was actually missing from the 2018 World Cup voting which saw many criticise the legitimacy of Russia’s winning bid. It will probably wont be big price for England to host in but with some good betting offers it might be worth a punt

Speaking about a potential bid for the 2026 World Cup, a board member of the FA David Gill has expressed interest he said “What it does (the voting system) is gives great confidence that the procedures in place now are appropriate and relevant. If you’ve got a product then it’s up to the company selling it to actually demonstrate what’s required, review that and then come up with the answer”.  “Why wouldn’t you [want the tournament in England]? If you love football, to see it on your doorstep. You look at the assets that we’ve got in England, or the UK, in terms of grounds. Some of the best grounds in world football; the best training grounds. It would be fantastic.”

England if they wanted could approach the other two countries in the UK, Scotland and Wales but they would be more than capable of hosting the tournament on their own given the superb stadiums they have at their disposal like Old Trafford, The Emirates, Stamford Bridge and Wembley of course.

In other English World Cup news, Marcus Rashford is an injury doubt for England’s opening game against Tunisia. The Manchester United striker missed the second training sessions on the bounce with a knee injury.
