Shame On Adamu Russia to host 2018 finals, Qatar 2022

Posted by Tyler on December 2, 2010 in Feature, Sport · 0 Comments

Amos Adamu (president of the West African Football Union and a member of the FIFA committee on the bid) was caught on camera meeting with reporters pretending to be lobbyists for the United States, in which he offered a “guarantee” to vote for the US bid in the 2018 event in return for $800,000 for a personal project.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter announced the eagerly anticipated results in Zurich, Switzerland, on Thursday afternoon.

Russia beat competition from England, Netherlands/Belgium and Spain/Portugal. Deputy prime minister Igor Shuvalov celebrated by saying: “You have entrusted us with the FIFA World Cup for 2018 and I can promise, we all can promise, you will never regret it. Let us make history together.’

Qatar will become the first Middle Eastern hosts of the World Cup after Sepp Blatter, the Fifa president, announced the 22 executive committee members had voted to award the 2022 tournament to a country of only 1.7m people, beating off the rival bids from the United States, who had been considered the favourites by many, Australia, South Korea and Japan.
