Unveiled at FIFA headquarters in Zurich on Monday, the 500-page document, in English, French and Spanish details the English football scene in the approach to the millennium. Director of the 2006 campaign Alex McGivan says: ‘The bid document is a vital element of the campaign.

As fans ourselves we are dedicated to bringing football home to England.’ A decision by FIFA is expected next July.
