Merseyside Faces World Cup Woe

FOOTBALL : The possibility of hosting a World Cup in England without a match in Liverpool came into sharp focus as 15 cities put forward their cases to stage games if the 2018 bid succeeds.

The possibility of hosting a World Cup in England without a match in Liverpool came into sharp focus as 15 cities put forward their cases to stage games if the 2018 bid succeeds.
Neither Anfield or Goodison Park would fit FIFA criteria for the tournament, according to 2018 vice-president John Barnes, with Everton’s move to Kirkby rejected by the Government and Liverpool’s Stanley Park plans hit by a number of delays.
Barnes, the former Liverpool player, said: “They need a new stadium, we always knew that. When the bid was submitted it was on the grounds of new grounds being in place, not Anfield hosting the World Cup in nine years’ time.”
He added: “I’m sure that would have been the case anyway because neither Anfield or Goodison would fit the criteria for hosting a World Cup. They would have had to have built a new stadium anyway.”
