Russia and Qatar awarded FIFA World Cups

Russia and Qatar will host soccer's biggest tournament, the FIFA World Cup, for the first time in 2018 and 2022 respectively.

Russia headed off 1966 host England and joint presentations from Spain-Portugal and Holland-Belgium in Thursday's vote at FIFA headquarters in Switzerland.

Qatar won the right to host the 2022 tournament ahead of bids from the United States, South Korea, Japan and Australia.

Good to see they've cleaned up the corruption in FIFA....LOL No surprise that after the BBC showed a program on corruption going on in FIFA the most favoured country, England, only got 2 votes....what a joke!

Gays should ‘refrain from any sexual activities’ at Qatar World Cup: FIFA chief
Sepp Blatter, the gift that keeps on giving. He once said women players should wear shorter tighter shorts. He also claimed soccer should do away with throw-ins and have "kick-ins". Why? Because having throw-ins in football was like having kick-ins in basketball.
