Nottingham launches World Cup bid

Nottingham has today launched it's bid to become a host city for the 2018 World Cup, with fears that Council plans for a new ground sharing arrangement between the city's two clubs could once again be in the pipeline. Officials from Nottm City Council hope to show the FA plans for a new stadium and sports park in either Holme Pierrepont or Gamston, which would primarily be for use by Nottingham Forest, however there could be plans to move the Magpies either into the stadium or an adjacent smaller stadium, to be shared with Nottingham RFC.

The city is one of 15 to apply to be prospective hosts for the World Cup, and FA delegates will travel to inspect the city later in July, where plans for the stadium, as well as training bases and fan parks will be presented. England is bidding for the international tournament in 2018, and along with Russia seems to be one of the favourites for FIFA's final decision.
