SA stands out at World Cup bid presentation
Independent Online – Sep 30, 2003
“The successful hosting of the Fifa World Cup in Africa will provide a powerful, irresistible momentum to this African renaissance,” Mbeki said in a video message. “We are bidding to stage this tournament because we believe that, in democratic South Africa, we are best equipped to present a safe, joyful, significant and memorable World Cup. ”

South Africa reminded Fifa of its experience in hosting international events, such as the 1995 Rugby World Cup, the African Nations Cup of Football in 1996, the 1999 All African Games and the ICC Cricket World Cup last year. It also played its political card. Nigeria announced its withdrawal from the bid”It is important in a country where democracy is only burgeoning to be able to seize such an opportunity,” Mandela concluded winningly via video transmission with Beckham smiling beside him. “If you give us your support, others will follow. ”

South Africa also reminded Fifa it had 80 percent of its stadiums already built – normally considered an advantage in any candidature for sporting events.

The project is in fact to be a trilogy and will follow the trials and tribulations of a young Latino player. In the first film he moves from East LA to play in the English Premiership, in the second instalment he transfers to a top European club, the story then culminates in the final instalment where the hero represents his national team at the World Cup. The first of the three films, in which football’s world governing body FIFA is already heavily involved, is slated for release next year, with the second instalment due out in 2005 and the finale scheduled to coincide, rather neatly, with the 2006 World Cup. Say what you like about Hollywood, but Tinseltown’s executives are an extraordinarily shrewd bunch and it took just one surprise success for the Players to realise that the old pig skin could return dollars by the bucket full. Not bad when you consider that it had a production budget of just $5… Mr Bender, suffice to say, can spot a good venture. Earlier this month Fifa announced the project, the story’s rudiments and confirmed Bender as the film’s co-producer alongside Jefferies and Barrelle, but, given his profile, it is the invovlement of Bender’s which has lead eyebrows to be raised and given Goal! its credibility. However, while Bend it like Beckham proved there was money to be made from a film about football, and the World Cup underlined (for the uninitiated at least) the sport’s enormous global interest, in order to guarantee success the film needs stars. While Y Tu Mama Tabien’s star Gael Garcia Bernal remains the favourite to land the film’s main character, in Goal!’s case the real stars will arguably be the clubs and teams which it features. And this uncovers the commercial underbelly of the film. It is understood that Nike-endorsed Manchester United and Adidas-endorsed Newcastle United are the two clubs vying to star as the Premiership club the Latino player joins. In the second film, depending which apparel company wins out, the player will then switch to Adidas’s Real Madrid or Nike’s Barcelona and then in the final film he will represent his home nation at the World Cup, either Argentina, who wear Adidas kit or Brazil, who sport Nike.

Soccer fans unite to support US
OSU – The Lantern – Sep 29, 2003
The crowd of 22,828 was different from the fans normally seen in Columbus. While there was plenty of tailgating and alcohol, it was more of a family atmosphere than one would see at an OSU football game. Where OSU football has alumni, college students and lifelong adult fans as its primary fan base, the FIFA Women’s World Cup drew many younger fans – often girls – to the match. Some area youth soccer programs brought entire teams to give them the chance to watch their idols play. Many of the fans were players themselves. Jami Eversole and Lori Watt, friends who played soccer at the University of Cincinnati and James Madison, have been playing soccer most of their lives. “We just came to enjoy the game,” Watt said… , and Jim Cox of Dallas have been to several big soccer matches. The elder Davila said they saw the men’s World Cup in 1994 in Los Angeles, traveled to the Atlanta Olympic Games in 1996 and saw the qualifying match in 1999 in Columbus. They are planning on traveling to Germany for the 2006 World Cup. The fans may have come for different reasons but they were united in their desire to see a victory for the United States. Bruce Abadi, from Lexington, Ky. , summed up the views of many of the match’s spectators. “I hope for a good game and a win,” Abadi said.

BBC SPORT | Tennis | Taylor to stay in charge
BBC News – Sep 30, 2003
In this year’s first round against Australia, Taylor was forced to pick from a squad stripped of the injured Greg Rusedski and Tim Henman. Unsurprisingly, Britain slumped to a 4-1 loss. Defeat to Morocco at the weekend means Britain will have to wait until at least 2005 before they play in the World Group. “I am fully committed to Davis Cup but my contract has not been agreed and that is to be discussed,” Taylor said last week. “I think there will be a decision by the end of October. “With the second-round draw we have been given, we have a very good chance of getting to the World Group play-offs in September and I want to be there.

” Laura Barton Nicole CookeAge: 20 Cyclist Nicole Cooke moves fast. Two years ago, when racing as a junior, Cooke signalled her intentions by winning gold in not one but three disciplines at cycling’s world championships. This year she has established herself as a major force in the senior ranks by claiming the season-long world cup competition with, to date, three outright wins in seven races. Still just 20 and in only her second year as a professional, Cooke has already proved herself one of the best in the world. In a context where women’s cycling rarely even merits a mention among the results listings on British sports pages, this chirpy, affable young woman from Wick in the Vale of Glamorgan has already raised the profile of the sport significantly. As a pro, she is now based in Italy and spends eight months of the year racing in mainland Europe or further afield. After her last race of the season, the world championships, she is ready to come home to see family and friends.
