FA appoints 2018 bid team members

World Cup trophy
England's 2018 bid has a 15m budget

The Football Association has bolstered its 2018 World Cup bid team - England 2018 Ltd - with three new appointments.

Former marketing director of London's successful bid for the 2012 Olympics, David Magliano, has been named commercial and marketing director.

The chief operating officer of the bid company will be the FA's director of corporate affairs Simon Johnson.

And the FA's head of international relations Jane Bateman becomes the 2018 bid's director of campaign operations.

In November Andy Anson, formerly the head of men's professional tennis in Europe, was brought in by the FA to lead England's bid to host football's 2018 World Cup.
