World Cup Host No Longer Rotating Between Continents

WORLD CUP CONTINENTAL ROTATION KNOCKED OFF AXIS: The World Cup may not be heading back to South Africa or South Carolina anytime soon:

The DAILY TELEGRAPH (UK) reports that FIFA has decided to end its world championship rotation policy.Previously, soccer’s governing body had a system where the World Cup host site would rotate between the six continental confederations (sorry, Antarctica).

The next tourney up for grabs is in 2018. According to the old policy, a country in North America or the Caribbean would be the one rolling out the welcome mats.

However, the policy change means that non-Northwestern Hemisphere nations can now officially bid to host the contest, without having to wait until the next continental go-around.That clears the way for England to make a serious run for the 2018 tourney, along with other European nations who just recently saw the World Cup come to Germany in 2006.

Besides, American interest in the Cup already peaked after Brandi Chastain showed off her own cups.
