    In the recent number you said that the World Cup host has never been decided so early in advance like for 2022, which is not true. Back in the day the decisions were made in FIFA congresses and in 1966 three tournaments were awarded at the same time, for 1974, ’78 and ’82, so there was up to 16 years of preparation. The 1986 World Cup was awarded to Colombia in 1974, 12 years in advance.
