Beckham, Button, Noel: proud of an English World Cup

LONDON - England's bid to host the 2018 World Cup steps up a gear this week with the launch of the 'Back the Bid Week', with a host of Britain's Best lending their support.
Former England captain David Beckham - vice president of the bid - has urged the entire country to show their support for the bid by attending a series of events and campaigns over the course of the next week.
“The support we have had for the bid from the public over the past year has been incredible” the ex Ac Milan man said. "Back the Bid Week provides the opportunity for the nation to come together again as a team and try and win the World Cup together.
“I’ve no doubt that fans from all over the country will unite and show the FIFA Inspection Team the type of passion and festival of football we could create if we staged the world’s greatest sporting event.”
During the next seven days, cities and football grounds around the country will be adorned with 'Back the Bid' flags and banners, with events such as children's coaching sessions and mass participation football games being staged throughout the visit.
In order to highlight England's suitability to host the games, the events will involve each of the 12 candidate cities, as well as celebrity endorsers, sponsors, schools, businesses and the public to showcase the country.
Messages supporting the bid from fans, players, mascots and referees will be played before each Premier League and Football League fixture during the visit, reaching a worldwide audience of 1.5 billion people in over 200 countries.
A national 'Wear Your Shirt to Work Day' will then be staged on August 24 to mark 100 days before the hosts of the 2018 and 2022 World Cups are announced by FIFA in Zurich.
With more than 1.5m people already officially showing their support in over 200 countries, the bid is gaining momentum, with a number of household names lending their support.
Manchester City fan and former Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher believes the nation's passion for football would ensure that an English World Cup would be a spectacle to be proud of.
“Playing gigs in England, and in particular at Wembley, is always an amazing feeling with the fans that come to watch us creating an electric atmosphere," he said.
"The buzz the nation would create if we were to host the World Cup in 2018 would be incredible – England lives and breathes football, from a professional level through to guys going out for a kick about with their mates and kids in the playground."
Hollywood hard man Ray Winstone was also vocal in his support for the bid, and echoed Gallagher's opinion that the English passion for football
“A World Cup in England would be one of the best things that has ever happened to this country," Winstone enthused.
"I travel all over the world and wherever I go there is always someone around to who wants to talk about English football, our passion for the game is unbelievable whether it’s in a packed Premier League ground or a park game.
"Football binds communities together in every town village and city in England. We need to show the world how much we want World Cup football over here and what an amazing experience it would be.”
The bid has also received the backing from notable figures from the world of sport, with Formula One World Champion Jenson Button urging the nation to get behind the bid.
"England would be a fantastic host for the 2018 World Cup and I'm really proud to back the bid," Button said.
"Having taken part in the Race of Champions at Wembley Stadium, I know that it would be a great venue for the World Cup Final. We have some of the greatest fans in the world and they would create an amazing atmosphere. I would love all my fans to show the England 2018 bid the same support that they have given me this season!"
