Stephen Morgan Backs The Bid!‏

Stephen Morgan, Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for Orpington today announced his support for England’s campaign to host the FIFA World Cup in 2018 and added his name to the growing list of politicians, members of the public, celebrities and businessmen from up and down the country to back the bid.

Commenting, Stephen Morgan said:

I am delighted to lend my support to England’s campaign to bring the World Cup to England in 2018 and would encourage everyone in Orpington to sign up to show their support for the bid.

If successful, hosting the World Cup will have a lasting legacy on London, both in sporting and economic terms, with forecasts of over £5 billion nationally in revenue as well as creating new jobs in the local area.

Football has an unprecedented power to unite communities and to inspire and engage young people and if England and London were to host the tournament it would add to London’s famous sporting heritage

I’m a proud supporter of the England 2018 Bid and London, and call on all football fans to back the bid at England2018bid.com.
