World Cup: Hull misses out on World Cup
Hull has not been named as a host city for England's 2018 World Cup bid.
The long-awaited announcement was made by The Football Association at 3.05pm today.
Authorities had bid to be one of 15 cities to host World Cup games – if England is chosen to host the 2018 tournament.
A successful bid would have meant that the KC Stadium could get increased capacity from 25,504 seats to 44,000.
