Football To Belatedly Come Home In 2030?

The FA have admitted that they may make a bid for the 2030 World Cup and William Hill offer odds of 3/1 that “football comes home”.


They did deny that they would step in to host the 2022 tournament if Qatar were stripped of their hosting duties, an outcome that is priced at 9/2.


“England may finally get the chance to host the tournament again in 2030 and following the nation’s strong showing in this year’s World Cup, would surely be amongst the favourites if a bid was submitted,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
