OSAKA, Japan (AFP) – Hot on the heels of the World Cup in South Africa, FIFA kicked off a whirlwind two-month tour Monday to inspect nine candidates vying to host the 2018 or 2022 tournaments, the first stop in Japan.
A five-member team from the sport's world governing body arrived in the western mega-city of Osaka on a four-day trip to see stadiums, facilities and presentations there and in Tokyo.
They will go on to South Korea, Australia, the Netherlands-Belgium (which are making a joint bid), Russia, England, Spain-Portugal, the United States and Qatar and draw up reports on the feasibility of each bid.
FIFA's 24 executives will choose the 2018 and 2022 World Cup hosts on December 2 in Zurich.
