So the votes are in. Russia to host the World Cup in 2018, and Qatar in 2022. How does everyone feel about the decision?
Personally, I’m happy that two nations who havenever hosted a World Cup won the honours. it’s going to do a world of good for both these countries. All the best to them in the preparations for it.
Here are the bid promo vids:
Russia (won the 2018 bid):
Qatar (won the 2022 bid):
Something interesting that the presenter said was that once the World Cup is over, the 22 stadiums built for it will be dismantled and redistrubuted across the globe to developing countries as resources for stadiums etc. Thats pretty awesome…Check out the vid:
Apparently England only managed 2 votes and were out in the first round of voting. Their party included the likes of David Beckham and Prince William. But alas, it was not meant to be.
