Wigan have joined forces with Liverpool's bid to become a host city for England's 2018 World Cup plans. The club has put itself forward as a potential training camp, with the facilities at the DW Stadium, Christopher Park training ground and Wrightington Country Club being proposed as a base for any team drawn to play in Liverpool. Latics chairman Dave Whelan said: "We have built up first-class facilities in the town over the past 10 years. "It would be a big honour for us as a club, and a town, to join forces with Liverpool's bid to be a part of one of the biggest events in world sport." Chief executive Brenda Spencer added: "We will do everything we can as a club and a town to support this bid. "It is very exciting to think of our club playing its part in the FIFA World Cup. We are all hoping England will now be chosen as a host nation."
