From Vital England:

Liverpool have enrolled the help of Blackburn Rovers, Preston North End, Wigan Athletic and Tranmere Rovers in their bid. They have all agreed to allow their stadiums to be used as training bases for competing national teams.

  • so i am presuming Ewood wont actually host games at the world cup?….and anyways, we want the world cup!! lol though i do think 2018 will go to Europe, hopefully we can snag 2022 and show all of you how to really host an event….ala the Best Olympic Games ever, Sydney 2000

  • nah ewood doesnt have the capacity nor the glamour for hosting world cup games. Stadiums like anfield, old trafford, st james’, white hart lane, the emirates, hillsborough, wembley (of course), villa park, goodison, eastlands are stadiums that spring to mind. And lets not forget the best commonwealth games ever – Manchester 2002.
