FIFA inspectors to visit White House
NEW YORK — FIFA inspectors assessing the United States’ bid for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups will have breakfast at the White House on Wednesday.
U.S. Soccer Federation president Sunil Gulati says it’s uncertain which government officials will attend, although he expects a couple of cabinet members and senior staff members. Former President Clinton is chairman of the U.S. bid.
A six-man delegation led by Chilean soccer federation president Harold Mayne-Nicholls began the three-day tour Tuesday.
