Paddy Power

As David Beckham presents Englands 2018 World Cup bid to FIFA Paddy Power make the Three Lions bid the betting favourite to host the tournament.

The bookie offers 7/4 that football comes home and England win the bid to host the 2018 tournament having previously hosted it for the only time in 1966. Paddy Power are also offering 14/1 for a repeat of that year with England not only hosting the tournament but also going all the way and winning it.

Englands closest rival appears to be 1982 hosts Spain at 9/4 with Australia also a front-runner at 3/1, their 2000 Olympic Games a sure sign they can host the biggest sports event in the world successfully. However many peoples dark horses are Russia at 9/2 having had their bid already described by FIFA President Sepp Blatter as “remarkable”.

Paddy Power said:

A sprinkling of Beckham stardust will do no harm for Englands 2018 bid and at this stage punters are backing football to be coming home.
