World Cup TV ‘will be free’
BBC News – Feb 26, 2001
should be able to watch all live games in the World Cup finals. 5 bn for the rights to the next two finals in 2002 and 2006. Kirch Sport wants to sell on the UK rights for ?170m to the highest bidder, which could include BSkyB and ONdigital. Under the 1996 Broadcasting Act all games in the World Cup finals must be shown live on terrestrial free-to-watch TV. European challenge

Many MPs fear Kirch Sport may challenge the legality of the UK law in the European courts.

You’ve never had it so good, England
The Observer – Feb 25, 2001
You need someone like Gérard Houllier to say the same thing for anyone to sit up and take notice. The Liverpool manager has long been a fan of English football, and his knowledge of English players is superior to Eriksson’s. In charge of up to half a dozen present and future internationals at Anfield, and himself a foreign coach responsible for bringing about the sort of rapid and tangible improvement that has just taken the pride of Serie A by surprise, Houllier believes the upcoming generation of English talent is the most exciting he has seen anywhere at any one time… You need someone like Gérard Houllier to say the same thing for anyone to sit up and take notice.

German football confronts its Nazi past
The Tribune – Feb 24, 2001
Now German football clubs are being told to examine their past. Kate Connolly
THEY are some of the most famous names in world football. But now clubs such as Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund look set to achieve a new notoriety as a spotlight is cast over their relationship with Adolf Hitler?s Nazi Party. Why this obsession with
our neighbour?

THE devastating earthquake in Gujarat has had a rather expected fall-out in the sports and political circles. Funds have to be raised and why not a cricket match with Pakistan? That was the only refrain from all those connected with the game. TEEING-OFF
SAARC tournament gaining popularity
K… ?But historians specialising in the period hotly refute this version of events, saying that historical documents from various sources prove that the parts of the building on Berlin?s so-called Reichs sport field, where the DFB had its headquarters, were not touched by the bomb. Insiders have instead spoken of huge stacks of archive material being `spirited away? over the years in an attempt to keep the truth hidden. Germany is to host the World Cup in 2006 and, say commentators, is keen to `clear up? this unhappy chapter in its history before it receives too much adverse publicity from abroad. The DFB issued a directive to all its clubs six weeks ago, calling on them to `work through and come to terms with? their Nazi pasts, and produce documentation with which historians could work. Close attention will be paid to the way in which FC Bayern Munich deals with its past. It recently refused to pay into a compensation fund for former Nazi slave labourers to which German firms and commercial institutions have been asked to contribute, saying that it was itself a victim of the Nazis. Many critics said it had gravely missed the point of the fund.

With regard to the match against Nigeria in Ghana on March 11, the Stars’ captain said the Nigerians start as favourites but noted that with the right preparation the Stars can rise to the occasion. Akonnor hinted that he is tired of playing in the Nations Cup, hence his determination to lead the Stars to the World Cup. He said should the Stars fail to make it to the 2002 World Cup, he certainly would not be part of the team for the 2006 qualifiers. According to him the Black Stars have problems with the FA, the technical team and the playing body and said none of this should be tackled in isolation. “If there is a problem at the management level, they have to solve it before accusing the playing body of any wrongdoing”, he said. The Europe-based players —Akonnor, deputy skipper Samuel Osei Kuffour and Emmanuel Duah — left for their bases yesterday. Source: Graphic Sports.

Bates’ big chance for Wembley blast
Telegraph.co.uk – Feb 23, 2001
Instead, representatives of WNSL, UK Athletics and Sport England will be speaking after him. The FA will attend the following week, along with Tony Banks, and this may provide the committee with the opportunity to ask whether the problems with Wembley were partly due to the short-term demands of England’s failed bid to hold the 2006 World Cup. Some in the FA believe that and Banks, as one of the leaders of the 2006 campaign, will no doubt have his own views. The hearings will conclude on March 14 with the attendance of the British Olympic Association, Chris Smith and Kate Hoey, the sports minister. THE hearings on Wembley have become something of an annual pantomime: these are the third in as many years. They seem to make no difference to policy and last year Smith rejected the recommendation that athletics be taken back to Wembley.
