England to Host the World Cup.

FA considers England bid to host tournament

The Football Association is considering putting England forward as a potential host for the 2030 World Cup.

The last major tournament played in England was the 1996 European Championship, 30 years after the country hosted its only World Cup.

FA chairman Greg Clarke says the governing body’s board has agreed to start work to see if a bid is feasible.

Wembley is already hosting seven games during Euro 2020, and the FA has bid to host the European Women’s Championship in 2021.

England failed with a bid – fronted by former captain David Beckham, Prince William and former prime minister David Cameron – to host the 2018 World Cup.
