why England 2018

LONDON - About 1 month to the decision (2 December).
If the high-res pic of Abigail Clancy is not enough... :)

1. Passion for football
Football is our national sport. Seven million people play every week, and there are over 30 million attendances at Premier League and Football League games every season. The passion runs wide and deep - from grassroots to elite; among men, women, boys and girls - and is shared by the hundreds of different communities that call England home. English football is enormously popular around the world - via a series of international TV agreements, nearly three billion people in over 200 countries regularly watch matches played in England.

2. England United
Our love of football means the whole country is united behind England's bid: The FA, the Premier League and Football League, clubs and players, the Government, Candidate Host Cities, commercial organisations, celebrities and - of course - football fans and the general public.

3. A popular destination with a home-from-home welcome
England is easy to get to and easy to get around. Millions of tourists come each year because there's plenty to see and do, from visiting historic landmarks to attending world-famous cultural events - and a lot more besides. Visiting players and fans will be welcomed with open arms by thousands of fellow countrymen who already call England home, yet all eager to provide enthusiastic support for their national teams.

4. Iconic stadiums
England has dozens of iconic football stadiums, rich in football heritage, spread throughout the country. Each provides top-quality facilities and has its own unique atmosphere. This atmosphere is created by the vocal backing of the fans and the vibrant colours they wear in support of their team. Attending a football match in England is an unforgettable experience.

5. The experience to provide a great experience
England has plenty of experience of hosting major events - The FA Cup Final, Wimbledon Championships (tennis), the British Open (golf), the Grand National (horse-racing), Test Matches (cricket) and the Six Nations (rugby), to name but a few. When it comes to security, transport and accommodation, the expertise and infrastructure are in place, and investment to enhance them continues.

6. Ideal location
England is in the perfect broadcast time-zone. There is no variation in altitude and we enjoy a temperate climate that is ideal for sport and helps create excellent playing surfaces.

7. Fantastic festival of football
England can promise a fantastic festival of football - noisy, sold-out stadiums and packed FIFA Fan Fests™. Because the football infrastructure is among the best in the world, we can confidently focus on taking the FIFA World Cup™ experience to a new level, engaging more people than ever before in the celebration.

8. Outstanding economic success
England is the world's largest commercial market for football - for TV rights, sponsorship, licensing, and ticket revenue. A FIFA World Cup™ in England is guaranteed to be a huge commercial success. A conservative analysis by PWC calculates the economic benefit to England of hosting the FIFA World Cup™ at over £3.2 billion, creating thousands of new jobs and opportunities for the entire country.

9. Inspiring the next generation
England will work with FIFA to drive football development in England and around the world. We'll inspire more people from every background to play and engage in football, and help provide the means to do so. This will create a new generation of talent - players, coaches, referees and administrators.

10. Driving positive change worldwide
A FIFA World Cup™ in England will deliver the most impactful worldwide legacy imaginable. It will improve the lives of millions by expanding global development programmes to tackle issues like health, education, environmental sustainability, racial and gender equality and social inclusion.

"Our identity is intertwined with football" says Prince William
