Let the bidding wars begin
BBC News – Jul 4, 2001
Round Four:Beijing 43, Sydney 45. The Chinese capital is the front runner in the race this time round as well, with Toronto and particularly Paris its prime rivals. A similar duel between a developing world contender and an established former European host decided the venue of the 2006 football World Cup. Just three days before voting took place in Zurich, Brazil withdrew its bid, leaving England, Germany, South Africa and Morocco in the contest. When Morocco and England were eliminated in the first two rounds, everything hinged on which country could snap up votes originally given to the already-defeated bids. South Africa scuppered

The race was so close that much talk revolved around Fifa president Sepp Blatter’s pledge that he would back South Africa in the event of a tie. But to the astonishment of the watching world, Germany won by a single vote.

Blatter: World Cup coming to Africa
BBC News – Jul 8, 2001
Bidding war

The Fifa announcement will trigger an all-out bidding war amongst African countries with a burning ambition to stage the World Cup finals, namely South Africa and Morocco. Although Blatter did not mention any dates, the rotation system will almost certainly kick-off with the 2010 edition. South Africa looked poised to land the 2006 World Cup, but lost out to Germany by just one vote in highly controversial circumstances. Guinea’s suspension

Blatter’s announcement was tempered with the news that Guinea’s suspension from Fifa had been formally ratified. This follows what Blatter described as “government interference” in the affairs of Guinea’s football federation… South Africa looked poised to land the 2006 World Cup, but lost out to Germany by just one vote in highly controversial circumstances.

Speaking to the GNA Sports in his office on Friday, Mr Aggrey pledged the full support of his ministry to the GFA and prayed that all members of the new board should forge a united front to work in the interest of Ghana football. He said he was very happy about the manner in which the chairman was chosen, as one of the candidates stepped down and there was no election, which would otherwise, have created bad blood between the winner and the vanquished. The Deputy Minster said it is the wish of the ministry that the GFA would operate as one family, devoid of traits of infighting and acrimony that characterised the tenure of the immediate past administration. He said he has a lot of confidence in the new board and that it is incumbent on them to come out with programmes that would redeem our sinking soccer and hike it to continental apex once more… The Deputy Minster said it is the wish of the ministry that the GFA would operate as one family, devoid of traits of infighting and acrimony that characterised the tenure of the immediate past administration. He said he has a lot of confidence in the new board and that it is incumbent on them to come out with programmes that would redeem our sinking soccer and hike it to continental apex once more. Mr Aggrey said Ghana is now reaping the whirlwind of bad planning in soccer and expressed the hope the new GFA would pursue a viable youth programme to sow the seed for a glorious redemption that would enable Ghana to be represented at the 2006 World Cup in Germany. He said the redemption programme would require transparency from all stakeholders including parents, teachers, coaches, club officials, the GFA ad the ministry, since it would be imperative for the correct ages of our youth players to be declared. The Deputy Minister said he is happy the new GFA chairman has vowed to make youth development his priority since the success of such a policy would translate into the Black Stars and bring the smiles back onto the faces of Ghanaians. Mr Aggrey said a dutiful and responsible GFA would allow the ministry to tackle the development of other sporting disciplines instead of concentrating all efforts on soccer administration. He called on every Ghanaian to support the new GFA in every manner to enable them to steer our soccer to a new pedestal of triumph, respect and pride.

Inside Sport: FA building bridges – with Celtic shirts
Telegraph.co.uk – Jul 7, 2001
The FA’s head of international affairs, Jane Bateman, has secured an unusual aid package for a number of developing football nations, including Equatorial Guinea, the home of Eric the Eel, of 3,000 surplus Celtic shirts. The kit was apparently due to be destroyed after being superseded by a new strip. While some might think that this innovative aid strategy has purely philanthropic motives, others suggest a darker conspiracy.
