Candidatura Ibérica com "boas possibilidades" em receber Mundial
20h02m


O chefe da delegação da FIFA que visitou durante quatro dias Portugal e Espanha afirmou hoje, quinta-feira, que "ficou bem impressionado" e revelou que a Candidatura Ibérica "tem boas possibilidades" de organizar o Mundial de futebol de 2018/2022.

"Após esta visita, foi possível notar que a Candidatura Ibérica é mais do que uma ilusão e que tem boas possibilidades de receber uma competição como o Campeonato do Mundo", disse o chileno Harold Mayne-Nicholls, numa declaração proferida num hotel em Lisboa.

O responsável da FIFA, que nos últimos dois dias visitou o Estádio do Dragão e o Estádio da Luz, considerou que os recintos espanhóis e portugueses "são o cenário ideal para milhões de desportistas e adeptos" e que as conclusões "são muito positivas".

"Ficámos bem impressionados. São estádios que possuem uma rica história, de tradição reconhecida. Foi também interessante a presença de importantes figuras do futebol mundial, jogadores e treinadores do passado e do presente, que querem o Mundial na Península Ibérica", disse Harold Mayne-Nicholls.

O chefe da delegação da FIFA mostrou-se também satisfeito com as infraestruturas hoteleiras e rodoviárias e com a criação de uma rede de TGV (comboio de alta velocidade) entre os dois países.

"Viajámos dessa forma entre Barcelona e Madrid e ficámos impressionados com a segurança, a velocidade e a pontualidade", referiu.

Antes do final da sua declaração, Harold Mayne-Nicholls pediu ainda "uma melhor coordenação entre as organizações de futebol, o governo e as autoridades locais".

Além das duas candidaturas conjuntas Espanha/Portugal e Bélgica/Holanda, estão também no terreno as da Rússia, Inglaterra, Austrália, Estados Unidos, Indonésia, Japão, México, Qatar e Coreia do Sul.

A FIFA escolherá as sedes dos mundiais de futebol de 2018 e 2022 em 2 de Dezembro do ano em curso.

Meaning, they were impressed and said that Portugal and Spain have good chances of hosting the World Cup.

Harold Mayne-Nicholls also mentioned that Portugal and Spain stadiums are the ideal scenery for millions of sportsmen and fans and that their (FIFA delegation) conclusions are very positive.

To him, these stadiums have a rich history and known tradition. They also liked the presence of past and present players and managers.

They're satisfied with hotels and railroads and with the creation of a high-speed rail system between the two countries, having tried it from Madrid to Barcelona. They were impressed with the speed, security and punctuality.


He only asked for a better coordenation between football bodies, the Government and local authorities.




Oh well, I bet they say this to everyone.

FIFA finishes the inspection assuring that their report will be very favourable
02 - 09 - 2010


“The Iberian Bid has many chances of being elected to organise the Football World Cup 2018/2002, and our report is going to be very positive because we have observed that they have a great sport, hotel and transport infrastructure, as well as a strong support from their political and sports authorities”, assured in his good-bye Mr. Harold Mayne-Nicolls from Chile, head of the FIFA inspectors’ delegation that has spent the last few days in Spain and Portugal.


FIFA’s inspection visit to Spain and Portugal has come to an end. During today’s working session, the group of evaluators headed by the Chilean Mr. Harold Mayne-Nicolls was in Lisbon. That was the final stage of the visit in which, during the last four days, the Iberian Bid has shown the ambassadors of the highest body of world football the cities and stadiums that would host the organisation of the World Cup 2018/2022, if Spain and Portugal’s joint bid is elected on December 2nd.

As a conclusion to the four days they have spent in Spain and Portugal, the FIFA inspectors thanked the collaboration they have received from the Iberian Bid representatives to help them achieve the proposed aim: to see ‘in situ’ and know those infrastructures and stadiums that have been suggested for the organisation of the World Cup 2018/2022, and to be able to prepare their report.

They expressed their satisfaction after checking that the response by both the Spanish and the Portuguese governments about the initiative to organise the World Cup was unanimous. There is close cooperation between both countries. “We are sure that the coordination on a State level which would be necessary if the World Cup came to the Iberian Peninsula is fully guaranteed”, Mr. Mayne-Nicolls stated. He also emphasised how important it is that no problems exist with visas for foreigners, as well as the cooperation between both countries in security matters.

The inspectors will also take with them a good impression about the infrastructures and means of transport, airports and hotels they have seen. They highlighted the trip from Madrid to Barcelona in a high-speed train, “we were fully satisfied both by its safety and by its comfort, and mainly by its punctuality”, he assured. He equally stressed the excellence of the stadiums visited, “ideal sceneries for millions of sportspeople who follow football on a permanent basis”.

In short, the visit to Spain and Portugal has been highly valued by the FIFA inspectors. The Iberian Bid representatives will have to continue working until December 2nd, the date on which the name of the bid elected to organise the World Cup of 2018 and 2022 will be known but, for the time being, a great result has been obtained with the effort made.

Prior to their good-bye, the six FIFA men inspected Benfica’s Do Sports stadium, proposed to host one of the semi-finals of the tournament. The Vice-President of the Lisboan club, Mr. Rui Gomes da Silva, along with the legendary players Eusebio, Toni and Humberto Coelho –who was once the national team coach, too– also welcomed the group. There, apart from seeing the sports facilities, they had the chance to observe how the eagle “Victória”, the club’s mascot, flies over the pitch of the stadium, something that impressed the group of inspectors as well.

By the way, it seems one semi-final will be played at Estádio da Luz and the third place match at Dragão.

No surprises.

HAHAHA ZING!! i like!!

and with regards to the gaps between euro championships and the world cup...

maybe its to do with the fact that Europe is a hell of a lot smaller than THE WORLD.

it goes without saying that european countries could hold both in a relatively short space of time seeing as the european championship is a hell of a lot smaller. like the Copa America has a far higher chance of being hosted by the same country in a relatively short space of time as its a lot smaller than the world cup. the same as the as African cup of nations and the asian cup cup. they all will be held on the same continent every four years (obviously) while the world cup jumps from continent to continent so the argument about pertugal hosting euro 2004 is pretty much defunct.

spain and portugal do have some beautiful stadiums and i think that if the protugese do want to see the world cup on theior soil then they will have to make some sacrifices and do a joint bid with spain.

i just hope they dont do what our government has done with the 2012 olympics and spend stupid amounts of money on it that we dont have.

I have just take a look to the official web page and I saw the "There are more of us every day" section, there you can see Ronaldo, Fabregas, Iniesta, Bruno Alves, Casillas, etc. all of them supporting our bid. Do you imagine a joint selection? Woah!
