Macclesfield Town launch cheeky bid to host the 2026 World Cup

As FIFA continue to reel in the wake of a massive, multi-national corruption scandal, Macclesfield Town have emerged as a lone voice of reason amid the chaos.

The Conference club have lodged their bid to host the 2026 World Cup on the basis that it's about time FIFA handed over the hosting duties to a "sensible bidder".

The Silkmen have even gone as far as designing their World Cup logo and outlining a full bid itinerary on their official website, including in-depth information about their stadia, training and media facilities, climate, transport, and accommodation.

According to the proposal, Macclesfield's own Moss Rose Stadium will host the opening and closing ceremonies as well as the FIFA 2026 World Cup Final. It also contains a run-down of the various beers and pies on offer in the local area and a memo that free WIFI is available at the library.

The best part is that Macclesfield have crunched the numbers and reckon that they can stage the whole thing for just £250 -- a darn sight cheaper than the £11.6billion it cost Brazil to host the 2014 tournament.

Cheap/sensible/beer/pies? Seems like a win-win-win-win situation as far as we're concerned.

Macclesfield, you officially have Toe Poke's vote!
