SEOUL, South Korea – A FIFA delegation has completed its four-day inspection of the South Korean bid to host the 2022 World Cup.
The five-member team led by Chilean Football Federation president Harold Mayne-Nicholls has toured stadiums, communication facilities and a national training center in South Korea during its tour of the country.
Mayne-Nicholls told reporters in Seoul on Sunday that "I must say ... the passion for the game seems to be growing everyday" in South Korea.
South Korea co-hosted the 2002 World Cup with neighbor Japan.
