Prince William officially backs 2018 World Cup bid

Wills shows off his footy skills.

Prince William has offered his full support to the Football Association's 2018 World Cup Final bid.

The Prince said: “It is with great pride that, as President of The Football Association, I offer my wholehearted support for our bid to host the World Cup Finals in 2018. Given the quality of the bid team that has been assembled, the superb facilities that we have in this country and, above all, the extraordinary passion that the English have for our national game, I am wholly confident that we will submit a truly world class bid to FIFA.”

The bid is being backed by other very high profile England supporters such as David Beckham and former football great, John Barnes.

FA Chairman Lord Triesman said: “We are delighted Prince William has offered his full support to the Bid. As President of The Football Association, he is a tremendous Ambassador for the English game and his official duties around the world will provide a natural extension to the direct work of the Bid team. We are extremely honoured that he is fully behind the aim to bring the tournament back to England.”
