Prince William and David Cameron embroiled in World Cup scandal

Prince William and former UK Prime Minister David Cameron have been implicated in a FIFA corruption scandal, according to an internal report into the bidding process for 2018 World Cup.

The report claims Mr Cameron and the Duke of Cambridge were present at a meeting between England football officials and their South Korean counterparts, at which illegal vote-swapping was allegedly discussed.

The report says Mr Cameron met FIFA vice-president Mong-Joon Chung in Prince William’s suite at a Zurich hotel the night before the vote for the 2018 hosting rights in December 2010.

It’s alleged Cameron asked the South Korean delegate to support England’s bid for the 2018 World Cup.

In exchange, England was asked to vote for a Korean bid in 2022.

Such a deal would be considered against FIFA rules on vote-swapping and collusion.

The revelation was made in a 400-page report into the practices by football officials in awarding the 2022 World Cup to Qatar.
