World Cup Voting Breakdown

2 Dec

Here’s how FIFA’s Executive Committee voted on the two bids. What stands out more than anything is England’s dismissal in the very first round of voting (no surprise), as well as Qatar’s dominance in all four rounds. Strangely enough, the USA was neck and neck with Korea throughout the voting process. That the Koreans impressed more with the possibility of having matches in North Korea is a statement and smack in the face to the United States’ bid.
