WORLD CUP BID TO COST MILLIONS

FA badgeThe FA in England has revealed that their attempt to win the World Cup bid for 2018 will cost in the region of £15 million.

It has also announced that it will employ a specialist bid team, similar to the one that secured the Olympic Games for London in 2012.

An FA statement said: “The board approved the setting up of a 100%-owned subsidiary company within the FA.



“This would be governed by an executive board made up of a bid chairman, a bid chief executive, the FA chairman Lord Triesman and two deputy chairmen.”

The FA added it could take up to six months for a full bid team to be assembled and said Lord Triesman will lead an interim management group until then.
