LONDON — FIFA's inspectors will visit London, Manchester, Sunderland and Newcastle next week as they scrutinize England's bid to host the 2018 or 2022 World Cup.
The delegation led by Chilean Football Federation president Harold Mayne-Nicholls begins its four-day visit to England on Monday.
While the inspectors are visiting only four of the 12 candidate host cities in England, they will see presentations from the other venues.
FIFA's 24-man executive committee votes on the 2018 and '22 hosts in December.
For the 2018 or 2022 tournament there is also a bid from United States, as well as joint bids from Belgium and the Netherlands, and Spain and Portugal. Australia, Japan, South Korea and Qatar are applying for 2022 only. (AP)
