Plymouth 'win World Cup'

Plymouth has won its bid to host World cup matches if England is chosen as the host nation for the 2018 games.

It was one of twelve teams announced this afternoon by the chairman of the Football league, Lord Brian Mawhinney.

Other cities include; Sunderland, London, Birmingham, Manchester, Nottingham, Leeds, Sheffield, Newcastle-Gateshead, Bristol, Liverpool and Milton Keynes.

This decision could earn Plymouth £292million if England's bid is successful and would play a big part in regenerating the city.

The plans include a 46,000-seat stadium which will be built in three stages - which is due to start next summer.
