Football’s Millennium Dome
BBC News – May 2, 2001
Waste of resources

And the FA has been forced to ask itself what it’s really here for – to build stadia, or promote football? Belatedly, it’s decided upon the latter. The FA is lucky to have great, valuable, marketable assets in the shape of its international games and cup finals. So why squander the profits serving a debt on a pretty but pointless stadium?

There is no World Cup in 2006 to build for, and the 2005 World Athletics championships have been removed to a dedicated (and yet to be built) athletics stadium at Picketts Lock. Any London Olympic bid will almost certainly be based on the East of the City. The Wembley National Stadium Ltd board will now have to decide what it should be doing. Maintain the stadium in the hope of a repreive after Jack Straw’s review of the project, or start looking for buyers?

In a way, it’s another Millennium Dome situation. ‘For Sale: Interesting architectural folly, viewing now, please leave plenty of time to get there.

Fifa’s agents survive winding-up order
BBC News – May 1, 2001
A Swiss court granted an appeal by the struggling Zug-based ISMM Group to hold off bankruptcy proceedings so it could carry out financial restructuring. The group is negotiating selling to Canal Plus, a fully-owned subsidiary of the Vivendi Group which owns a number of football clubs. ISL Worldwide – one of ISMM’s companies – holds the
non-European television rights to the World Cups of
2002 and 2006, as well as the marketing contracts for the
events. It also holds rights to the 2002 track and field
world championships, and a number of other major sports
contracts.

New Ghana coach takes Hearts
BBC News – Apr 27, 2001
There will be a possible recall for skipper Charles Akonnor and his Germany-based colleague, Samuel Osei Kuffour of Bayern Munich. Concentrate on 2006

The acting Ghana Football Association chairman, Owusu Ansah, has said that the Black Stars should forget about qualifying for the World Cup, but should concentrate on preparing for the 2006 finals in Germany. Ghana have four points and are second from bottom in Group A. Liberia lead the group with 12 points and the Lone Star have a home game against the Ghanaians on July 1… Former African champions, Hearts of Oak have 10 players in the side, with a call-up for three new caps.

Blatter’s rescue mission raises concerns
Telegraph.co.uk – Apr 25, 2001
It is giving the public a very bad image of ourselves. “ISL have debts of about £300 million. Glen Kirton, who headed Euro 96 and now heads ISL’s football division, has admitted to staff that pension contributions deducted from their wages have not been credited to the pension fund. One staff member has confessed to friends about losing £12,000 in the last six months… It is giving the public a very bad image of ourselves. “ISL have debts of about £300 million.

One staff member has confessed to friends about losing £12,000 in the last six months. Staff due their wages yesterday, estimated at $2. 5 million a month, were told there could be a delay. According to sources, ISL owe FIFA $187 million as part of the payment due on their deal, and they owe UEFA another $20 million, but a FIFA spokesman admitted only that ISL had failed to secure sponsorship for the computer technology for the 2002 World Cup.

Public places that applied for an exemption under the regulations on smoking in public places have until 30 June to make structural changes or face heavy fines.
