FA SAYS VIOLENCE WILL NOT DAMAGE WORLD CUP 2006

“I’ve said it (the violence) is unhelpful but I don’t believe it will be absolutely fundamental in the taking of that (bid) decision,” Davies said. England is bidding for the 2006 World Cup against Germany, Morocco, South Africa and Brazil. World soccer’s ruling body FIFA will make a decision in July.

CAF WILL NOT SELECT AFRICAN WORLD CUP 2006 CANDIDATE

CAF press officer Viken Djizmedjian said: “We will hear from both countries and find out how they are progressing. But we will not make a choice. “We have been stressing the point that the World Cup in 2006 should be going to Africa and we have written to the other confederations on the matter,” Djizmedjian said. CAF in January promised to endorse a single African candidate from the five African countries then in the running, but changed its stance when it realised it would be seen to be favouring one member over the others. Egypt, Ghana and Nigeria have since pulled out of the bid process, with Nigeria last month backing the South African bid. “The world cannot support Africa if it cannot lead,” was the reaction of South Africa bid committee boss Danny Jordaan to the news. “Now is the time for leadership in Africa,” he said in a telephone interview from London.

GERMANY, SOUTH AFRICA FAVOURED FOR 2006 WORLD CUP BID.

Whether one candidate is placed higher than another in any way is only known to the committee menbers receiving the report. “FIFA cannot comment if one of the candidates is unhappy about the contents of the report. The Football Association and England’s 2006 bid team said they were shocked at the report and questioned its impartiality. “The report has certainly dented our chances, it doesn’t make life any easier,” an FA spokesman told Reuters. “We were always aware a report would be produced but it is fair to say we were very surprised by what it had to say. “The suggestion that we are less prepared than Germany and South Africa I think was very surprising on the basis that they haven’t even built many of the stadiums where as we have. “We have already committed 760 million pounds to the Wembley project and no other country could offer a stadium that even comes close to it.

England said its bid was set apart by two key features – a plan to bring 12 children each from 203 countries to England during the World Cup and a new Wembley stadium which has yet to be built. “The basis of our bid has been the future. We could do the best job for the world of football,” said Sir Bobby Charlton. Tony Banks, Prime Minister Tony Blair’s special envoy for the England bid, brushed aside talk that England’s chances may be hit by fear of hooliganism. “We are satisfied that we have done everything that we need to do,” he said.

Football focus: Tall order for Kawaguchi as Portsmouth seek eastern…
Telegraph.co.uk – Sep 29, 2001
Referee Alan Gemmell showed Bowman, a former Scotland international, the cards for abusive language during Forfar’s contest against Stranraer last week. Bowman is now said to be retiring. FRANZ BECKENBAUER fears further ridicule for German football following their heavy defeat by England if Munich residents veto plans to build a new stadium for the 2006 World Cup. A local referendum will be held later this month to decide whether the city should fund a new ground in the northern district of Frottmaning. Beckenbauer, the chairman of the tournament’s organising com mitee, said a veto would mean Munich losing the right to stage the opening match of the World Cup. “The whole world would laugh at us,” he said. “People around the world are already asking me what’s going on.

SA APPEAL WILL NOT CHANGE 2006 VOTE, SAYS OFFICIAL
sportbusiness.com – Sep 27, 2001
Irvin Khoza, chairman of South Africa’s 2006 Bid Committee, said on Wednesday the South Africa Football Association (SAFA) had lodged an appeal with FIFA to set up a process of arbitration to challenge Germany’s successful bid. South Africa lost last month’s vote 12-11 with New Zealand’s Charles Dempsey, who had a mandate from his region to vote for South Africa, abstaining from the final round. Dempsey resigned as president of the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) and quit as member of the FIFA executive committee earlier this month. Blatter has already said the vote will stand but South Africa believes it has a valid case after consulting New Zealand, the OFC and a top lawyer in Brussels. However, Peter Velappan, general secretary of the Asian Football Confederation, also said the appeal was doomed to failure. “It’s the right of any national association to appeal against a FIFA decision,” said Velappan. “But as far as this World Cup decision is concerned, it is like a referee’s decision – it’s not subject to review.

FIFA ? BRAZIL IN CLEAR OVER 2006 PULL-0UT
sportbusiness.com – Sep 27, 2001
Brazilian Football Confederation president Ricardo Teixeira said his country would support South Africa’s bid on the basis that the favour would be reciprocated for the 2010 tournament. FIFA said in a statement on Tuesday that the announcement from Brazil “was not entirely unexpected in view of reports circulating in recent weeks. “We have always made it clear that any candidate may revoke its candidature at any time,” said FIFA president Sepp Blatter. “At no time has any pressure been brought to bear on any national association to present or renounce its wish to organise the World Cup and there are no sanctions foreseen (against Brazil) for such a late withdrawal. In an editorial in the latest edition of FIFA News Blatter wrote of the possible need to revise the bidding procedure for World Cup finals, perhaps having a system of preliminary eliminations of some candidates before the final phase of the campaign.

“The only thing I see is a positive factor,” he added. “People from all over the world can see the thoroughness with which violence by German hooligans is being dealt with here. Germany are one of five countries bidding to stage the 2006 World Cup finals. Brazil, England, Morocco and South Africa are also in the race.

SA CONFIDENT OF WORLD CUP BID

“My feeling is that we may only have Morocco around by April 30, and we are on our way to talk to them,” he said. “We will talk to Morocco to try to settle the African question. My feeling is CAF will support us and we will get the votes of the four others,” Jordaan said. If South Africa did become the sole bidder, it should logically then get to host the World Cup because even FIFA head Sepp Blatter had said it was the continent’s turn, he added… He also noted that Britain and Germany had their own urban crime problems as well as a fair number of soccer hooligans – a phenomenon so far alien to South Africa. “Football is a truly global game. Africa must have the World Cup. It is in the interests of world football,” Jordaan said.

We have new stadiums that are huge, that are prepared to host the World Cup,” Osvaldo Arruda, Brazilian 2006 World Cup Bid executive director said. “Brazil has everything to offer because of the passion of the Brazilian people for football and we have all the organisation capacity,” he said. “The Brazilian people believe that they deserve to host the 2006 World Cup. Brazil is competing against England, Germany, Morocco and South Africa for the right to host the tournament. World body FIFA will make their decision in Zurich on July 6 and delegations from Brazil and England were in Malaysia seeking to win support from members of the Kuala Lumpur-based Asian Football Confederation (AFC).

BLATTER GIVES BRAZIL BID BOOST

“I’m talking of a federation that has been the best in FIFA for the last fours years which means it’s well organised and of course deserves to stage the 2006 World Cup,” Blatter told football leaders and World Cup bid promoters gathered in Asuncion Paraguay for the South American Football Confederation’s annual meeting. “I’m talking about Brazil,” he said. The five nations competing to host the 2006 World Cup – Brazil, England, Germany, Morocco and South Africa – will learn who wins on July 6 after FIFA’s 24-man executive committee meets in Zurich. Until then, the nations’ promoters are travelling the globe, trying to score the biggest tournament in the game… “I’m talking of a federation that has been the best in FIFA for the last fours years which means it’s well organised and of course deserves to stage the 2006 World Cup,” Blatter told football leaders and World Cup bid promoters gathered in Asuncion Paraguay for the South American Football Confederation’s annual meeting. “I’m talking about Brazil,” he said.

AFRICA PUTS STRONG CASE FOR WORLD CUP BID

“It will prevent the World Cup being dominated by the Europeans, help prevent them from winning it easily and making it predictable and it will keep it competitive and add value. “It must be rotated around the continents so we all have an equal and fair chance. Football is a global industry underpinned by a global calendar. He said that if a World Cup was held in Africa the warm-up matches alone would help to generate much-needed revenue to help bridge the gap between the African income levels and those of European clubs. He said that English Premier League club Manchester United alone generated more sponsorship revenue than the whole of Africa. Morocco, England, Germany, South Africa and Brazil are bidding to host the 2006 tournament.

Ambitious programme

The organisation also announced an ambitious programme to host a series of major international events. If the 2006 bid is unsuccessful they will bid for the 2008 tournament. “We want to use the hosting of a Nations Cup to show the world that we will be ready to host the 2010 World Cup finals,” said Safa chief executive, Danny Jordaan. “But, at the same time, I want to state that we will host the Nations Cup whether or not we are awarded the World Cup,” he added. Safa will also be bidding to host the 2007 women’s World Cup finals and the annual Fifa congress in 2003.

SOUTH AFRICA CONFIRMS BID TO STAGE 2010 WORLD CUP
sportbusiness.com – Sep 27, 2001
Last year South Africa failed in its bid for the 2006 World Cup finals after Germany won by a single vote in controversial circumstances. SAFA’s confirmation of its 2010 bid was widely expected and means South Africa joins rivals Morocco in the race. Egypt and Tunisia have also expressed an interest in hosting the finals. Last week FIFA, world soccer’s governing body, announced on its website that the principle of rotating the World Cup finals between the six continental federations would be accepted and indicated that Africa would begin the process in 2010.

how to remove stains from plastic dishesIn action against AFC South rivals the Houston TexansOur first game of the season http://cheapjerseysupply.com is against the Carolina Panthers, who went to the play offs last year and won their division, and that’s going to be a really good challenge for us.

Trapped in a tent with his two surviving teammates, as a nine day storm prevented them from reaching a life saving depot of food and cooking gas only eleven miles away, Scott was the last to die.
