England and USA withdraw World Cup bids


MIAMI, Oct 15 (Reuters) - The United States has withdrawn their bid to host the 2018 World Cup and will focus entirely on their bid for the 2022 tournament, the country's bid committee said on Friday.

"For some time we have been in conversations with FIFA and UEFA about the possibility of focusing only on the 2022 bidding process, an option we have made reference to many times," said Sunil Gulati, Chairman of the USA Bid Committee and President of U.S. Soccer. "

We are confident this is in the best interests of the USA Bid," he said.

Meanwhile, England 2018/22 has confirmed to FIFA that it was withdrawing its candidature from the FIFA World Cup 2022 and will now focus on its bid to host the tournament in 2018.

This followed consultation with UEFA President Michel Platini on the most appropriate moment to withdraw.

England 2018 is delighted it is now clear the FIFA World Cup will be coming to Europe in 2018 following the withdrawal of the United States bid.
