Tories pledge £550m for grassroots football

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-2019-50695211


Quote:
The Conservatives are pledging to invest £550m in grassroots football as part of plans to back a UK and Ireland bid to host the 2030 World Cup if they form the next government.

The new Tory pledge would see the government's current grassroots football funding commitment to the project rise from £180m to £730m over the next 10 years.

The FA has said that only one-in-three English community pitches are of adequate quality, with one-in-six amateur matches called off due to poor pitch conditions.
Seems to me that the 'Football Authorities' should be spending more of their SKY money on grassroots football, instead of letting the Government do it

The government backed England's World cup bid in 2018 , That did not end well did it?

Nothing to do with a anti Tory stance as the supporting of our World cup bid originally started under a Labour government before the newly elected Conservative government supported it thereafter.

Of course the British are above that and don't involve themselves in the dirty business of backhanders , bribery and the nice little freebies that come as part of the job.

Re: Tories pledge £550m for grassroots football

It's not even a running gag anymore that both Russia and Qatar were both awarded dodgy World Cup bids.

AFAIK literally every bidding nation including ourselves made attempts at bunging it. Remember when Fifa published like a 3 page summary of the Garcia report that caused the guy to quit after they claimed it cleared the whole process. Or the time 3 million apiece started appearing in the bank accounts set up for daughters of FIFA voters. Lord Triesman identified 4 of these members 6 years before they were prosecuted for it and implicated in the Garcia report because they'd handily asked the England campaign for the same bribe.

The FA make enough money to deal with grassroots things themselves, the pressure ought to be on them.

l am just saying when the British media refer to it as a Russian con job that is because we lost the bid.

Its typical of the hypocritical British media who seem to think us British are above it all when we were at it just as much as all the other World Cup bidders.

Re: Tories pledge £550m for grassroots football

Not because 22 officials had received money from the Russian FA?

Generally when you miss out on a World Cup because you didn't pay enough money or offer substantial benefits to the right people then there's a fairly hefty problem. British media would've reported the same story against England had it been that way. Its what they do. Papers like the Sun and Co have no shame in ridiculing their own nation.

We'll have dished out a fair share of benefits to FIFA lads but our bid was finished the second Triesman blew the whistle on what they were up to. The only reason he didn't publicly do it was because they had their own redundancy plan. Which was to gather votes from their favourable members. We went into the bid speculating who had guaranteed the vote of which members. It was literally that bad. Eurovision for football.

Thrown under the bus only to be proven right all along.
