Sound of Football Podcast 486 - Five go bidding

This week, a proposed bid to host the 2030 FIFA World Cup from the five nations of Britain and Ireland was dropped in favour of what seems to be a much more likely propostition of hosting the 2028 Euros. As 2028 is also the proposed date of the first biennial World Cup, is this bid more about snubbing the global governing body FIFA?

With UEFA building an ever closer relationship with the South American confederation CONMEBOL, are FIFA finding themselves more and more side-lined as they try to force through changes to the World Cup? Are there other options available for a fairer, more equitable World Cup that satisfies the needs of all stakeholders?
