Roger Milla to boost SA 2006 bid in France
Dispatch Online – Feb 26, 2000
South Africa is in the race to host the world event with Morocco, Brazil, England and Germany. With the 24-man Fifa executive voting on the successful candidate in Zurich in July, the SA Bid Committee is now using every opportunity to increase its profile around the world. Bid Committee chief executive Danny Jordaan said yesterday the Expo would grant the country an ideal opportunity to garner support for its bid. “More than 1 500 delegates, 200 media personnel and 100 exhibitors from over 70 countries have registered for the annual event, which has been endorsed by Fifa,” Jordaan said… South Africa is in the race to host the world event with Morocco, Brazil, England and Germany.

How the taxi industry boosts our World Cup chances

He says Europe takes 90 percent of the economy of world football. “If an African country is given an entry, they will have a greater market share,” says Jordaan. Then, he adds, a World Cup staged in Africa will ensure that football remains a truly global and international sport. It would be nice to host the 2006 World Cup. But to say that the sport will lose its international status if it is not given to us is over-stressing our own self-importance. That we successfully hosted the All African Games (I seem to remember some hitches) and the rugby World Cup (remember the floodlights which failed to light up) cannot be equated with soccer’s prime event. More spectators than rugby’s World Cup and the All African Games combined converge on the host nation during World Cup soccer.

Wembley report condemns ministers
BBC News – Mar 2, 2000
A ?475m redevelopment scheme drawn up by Football Association subsidiary Wembley National Stadium Ltd was rejected by Mr Smith last December, after complaints from the British Olympic Association that a removable running track outlined in the plans would not be adequate to stage Olympic events. Delayed decision

WNSL was told to return ?20m of a ?120m Lottery grant, and athletics was removed from the redevelopment scheme. The plan now centres on providing a showpiece venue for the 2006 World Cup bid and a future home for the England football and rugby league teams. The committee said the difficulties which led to the scheme being halted were clear as early as May last year, and said the ministers should have taken a decision earlier. The MPs concluded that Mr Smith took a “disproportionate” account of the views of the BOA, which had “exercised an influence on the Wembley National Stadium which has not been justified, an influence exercised ironically to the detriment of athletics”.

After watching MLS Cup ’99 and the NCAA Division I men’s College Cup – where both Foxboro Stadium and Ericsson Stadium were marred with football lines — anything would be an improvement. Yes, RFK has seen better days and it certainly looks its age — almost 40 years old — yet the closeness of the fans to the field and the feel of the stadium give the spectator a real soccer atmosphere that is lacking in many, if not all, pro soccer stadiums in the United States. Editors like England, but FIFA has the final word According to a poll of 50 international sports editors, England is the favorite to host the 2006 World Cup over South Africa, Germany, Brazil and Morocco. That’s fine and dandy, but regardless how the media feel, it will be FIFA’s executive committee that will have the final word in July. And if you think the media will make any difference, just remember back to 1996 when arguments about the problems of co-hosting by then FIFA president Joao Havelange and general secretary Sepp Blatter (now the president) fell on deaf ears. The committee selected South Korea and Japan as 2002 co-hosts. Related informationStories.

CHELSEA WAIT FOR UEFA VERDICT
4TheGame – Mar 2, 2000
Two Chelsea fans were arrested – one for carrying a knife and one for hitting a steward in the stadium. Ten supporters, thought to be on their way to the game, were also arrested in Lyon on Tuesday for allegedly attacking people on the underground. FIFA, nevertheless, said there was no reason to suggest the trouble would pose any threat to England’s bid to host 2006 World Cup. The organisers of the England 2006 campaign had been in Cannes, a few miles down the coast from Marseilles, promoting their bid at an annual football exhibition. But as they returned to London they were happy to hear FIFA’s comments. FIFA spokesman Andrin Cooper said: "The decision on the bids is for the executive committee members and them alone. "They will make their decision based on a series of criteria based on the results and inspections of the countries who are bidding.

The total compound must be 90% alcohol or else it won’t burn very well. Depending on whether you bought your calcium acetate or made it at home, you’ll either have to add water or not. If you have dry calcium acetate, you’ll need to combine 2 parts water to every 3 parts calcium acetate and stir them until the substance is dissolved. But either way, as long as the final substance is 90% rubbing alcohol, it should burn great. And just like that, you have your own gel fuel! One extra tip. If Replica Oakley Sunglasses you want the gel fuel to crackle just like a normal wood fire, you have to add something to it that will pop when the fire gets to it. Oil and water work very well for this. If you take 1 tsp of oil and 2 tsp of water for each soup can and mix it into the gel, it will make the fire occasionally crackle and pop when it comes across those small pockets of oil and water.

To put things is a nutshell we can safely say that both the providers are over all good, when they are not down that is. Their customer service department does leave a lot of space for improvement. However, so far as the programs are concerned subscribers to Direct TV have reported that they do have a big advantage over subscribers to Dishnetwork Cheap Oakleys Sale and that is Direct TV s Premier Satellite System Sports Package.
