FIFA classes for World Cup bidding teams

FIFA classes for World Cup bidding teams

The 11 bid teams hoping to win hosting rights for the 2018 or 2022 World Cup were sitting together in the same room at FIFA headquarters yesterday. The group session sets up a week of team-by-team workshops as football's world governing body helps teach the candidates how to stage its monthlong, multibillion dollar tournament.
FIFA requires bidders to provide world-class stadiums, hotels, transport and digital communication links. They must also demonstrate corporate and social responsibility, and environmental awareness.
"FIFA is much more helpful to the bidding nations in terms of describing what it is we need to accomplish," David Downs, executive director of USA Bid Committee Inc.
