    Nice article. Apparently FIFA only want to use one stadium per city. Bit of a shame that the likes of City of Manchester Stadium, Emirates and the new Everton one will prob miss out but the likes of Elland Road, Coventry and Southampton’s might get the nod.

    Greater Manchester is not a city, but a metropolitan county. The City of Manchester and the Metropolitan Borough of Trafford are two seperate places, so as far as FIFA are concerned there could be a stadium in both depending on their definition of ‘city’.
    (Greater) London may be able to get away with a 3rd or 4th stadium too and if that’s the case Liverpool could be the ‘city’ with two.
