FIFA World Cup 2018

DCMS response to public enquiries.

The Government, like the whole country, is obviously very disappointed. The bid team put together a strong bid and we can be proud of that but the competition was always going to be tough. We congratulate Russia on being selected for 2018 and wish them luck for hosting the tournament.
