Mexico launch World Cup bid

Mexico has officially launched a bid to host the FIFA World Cup in either 2018 or 2022. The central-Americans announced this on Friday.

The world’s most prestigous football tournament took place in Mexico twice before, in 1970 and in 1986. In the latter case, Colombia was originally chosen to host the tournament but safety issues eventually redirected the event to Mexico.

Other candidates so far are England, Australia, Indonesia, Russia, Spain/Portugal and Netherlands/Belgium. Qatar and China have expressed their interest.

The deadline to announce a bid is set to expire next monday.
