Eastlands & Old Trafford Bid For 2018

Eastlands & Old Trafford Bid For 2018

Manchester's Eastlands and Old Trafford stadiums are two of 15 cities hoping to be chosen as possible venues for England's 2018 World Cup bid.

About 10 cities will be chosen from a list that includes London, Liverpool, Birmingham, Leeds, Derby, Hull and Newcastle-Gateshead, Nottingham, Plymouth, Leicester, Milton Keynes, Sheffield, Sunderland and Bristol.

The chosen venues will be announced on 16 December and then in May 2010 England representatives will present their case to FIFA.

Countries bidding to host the World Cup

2018 or 2022: Australia, Belgium-Netherlands (joint bid), England, Indonesia, Japan, Portugal-Spain (joint bid), Russia, United States

2022: Qatar, South Korea

If you were around when England hosted the 1966 World Cup we would love to hear from you.

Did you go to any of the matches and if you did, what was the atmosphere like?

Did you see any famous players and if so, who?

Did the press blanket cover the event?

I don't know why Manchester applied. There is NO chance the World Cup would be played in England, without one or both of the stadiums. The council has wasted money on a ridiculous bid and to be honest, the way the tinpot monkeys organising the bid are behaving, i doubt we would get the tournament. Is there a refund available. Probably not.

Its pretty obvious that both of these stadiums were always going to be part of the bid, the rumours this morning suggest that Stamford Bridge will be one of the biggest casualties from the stadia list should we actually win the right to host the World Cup
