Rosena Allin-Khan responds to FA’s World Cup 2030 bid announcement

Rosena Allin-Khan MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Sport, commenting on the FA’s announcement that they are looking into a bid for the 2030 World Cup, said:

“Last month, Labour announced that we’re backing a UK bid for the 2030 World Cup. And today we’re delighted the FA have begun looking into that process.

“The achievement of the England team in Russia reignited a passion for the national team, and they came home to a proud country. The next Labour government will give its full support to the FA in launching a bid, if they decide to do so.

“To bring football home to the UK in its centenary year would be incredible. We’d put on a spectacle like no other.”
