The Bidding Process is entering the last phase, which will also include the upcoming inspection tours, starting Monday 19 July 2010, until the FIFA Executive Committee decides on 2 December about the hosting of the 2018/2022 FIFA World Cups™.

Various bidding associations were contacting members of the FIFA Executive Committee, either formally or informally, in relation to the relevant bids.

In order to ensure maximum transparency and preserve the independence of the members of the Executive Committee during the bidding procedure, FIFA has sent a circular to the bidding member associations informing them of a new policy which makes it mandatory for all bidders to inform the FIFA Ethics Committee in advance and in writing of any form of communication with a member of the FIFA Executive Committee or a member association of a FIFA Executive Committee member.
