Discussions on hosting the Under 20 World Cup continuing

Mayor Dave Cull says discussions between Fifa and the DCC on hosting the Under 20 World Cup are continuing.

Mr Cull responded this afternoon to a newspaper opinion piece by National MP Michael Woodhouse, asking the council to reconsider dropping its bid for games.

The council pulled out because it said the cost was not worth the financial results of hosting games.

But Mr Cull said today world cup representatives liked what they saw in Dunedin.

It was possible Fifa would come back to the council with a revised proposal.
