    Englands betrayal of the Anzac FIFA womens' World cup bid.

    It didn't work. The women's world cup is coming down under, 2023. [ The English say they were trying to promote football in South America. ]

    Anger at England's betrayal in Women's World Cup voting bid
    halfbacks were invented to stop prop forwards taking over the world.

    Ladies, if a man says he will fix it, he will. There is no need to remind him every 6 months about it.

    So the English FA, a member of UEFA, votes the same as all the other UEFA members...? But this is a betrayal?
    The article doesn't actually confirm who the FFA had sought and received promises of votes from.


    Still, makes a better headline than 'Anger at Albanian betrayal...' I suppose.

    Self interest, and yes, a betrayal. Still, nothing like a betrayal to spice up the game between England and Australia. [ That's if England can get out of the first stage




    In all the excitement of finding out that Australia and New Zealand would be officially serving as the hosts of the 2023 FIFA Womenís World Cup Ė which inarguably stands as the biggest sporting moment in Australia since the 2000 Olympics, and possibly even exceeds that Ė itís been rather easy to overlook one key and fairly glaring slight: England didnít vote for us
    Following the announcement, which came just before 2am this morning AET, FIFA officials released the final voting breakdown of its sitting delegates; part of a raft of on-going improvements to FIFAís operations in a bid to boost transparency and move the organisation beyond the stink of the corruption scandals that plagued the awarding of past World Cups.
    The joint Australian and New Zealand World Cup bid comfortably romped home in the final voting tally, seeing off a string of last-minute efforts from rival Colombia to secure the 2023 Cup by a voting margin of 22 to 13.







    Here you can find the FIFA Council vote breakdown.




    In favour of the Australian/NZ bid were unified blocs of votes from the North American and Caribbean CONCACAF group, the African CAF contingent, the pan-Asian AFC which includes Australia, and the smaller Oceanic contingent of which New Zealand is a part of. The bid also secured the crucial figurehead vote of FIFA chairman Gianni Infantino.
    Voting against the Aussie and Kiwi group, however, were the powerhouse duo of the South American CONMEBOL bloc Ė who, as expected, backed in their native Colombian bid Ė and the powerful UEFA European contingent, who voted collectively in favour of the Colombians.


    As far as why Clarke didnít break with UEFA to vote with Englandís own Commonwealth, itís worth noting that he personally is up for FIFA board re-election next year. Clarke is also currently nursing the impending English bid for the 2030 FIFA Menís World Cup, which would require the backing of powerful footballing bodies like CONMEBOL to get over the line.

    Nah, I still don't get it.
    The English FA didn't vote for us and presumably never said they would vote for us. Yet somehow this is self serving and a betrayal?
    Is it a betrayal from all the other countries too?

    Now if every other country voted for us, England said they would vote for us, but didn't, THEN you could have your "betrayal" headline.

    The tournament is coming here which is brilliant, I just don't get the fascination over who did or didn't vote for us.

    Maybe the poms tried to do us a favour. They didnít want us to experience the boredom and expense that comes with womenís sport.

    Geez, which century are you living in?

    Unlike some of the more relatively recent women's team sports, football has been going for quite a while, particularly in the US, and I reckon it's just as interesting as the men's game. Slower, but not worse.

    One of the few things I agree with from Bob's posts in this thread is that it'll be the biggest event since the Olympics.
