Fox Sports Chair Joins US World Cup Bid

David Hill, chairman of Fox Sports, joined the board of directors for the United States’ 2018 or 2022 World Cup bid.

“There’s no denying that enthusiasm for soccer in the United States is growing year after year, and that has certainly been evident during the last several World Cups,” Hill said in a release. “The USA Bid Committee has put together a compelling bid to bring the World Cup to the U.S., and it’s my honor and privilege to accept their invitation to join its Board of Directors and work to make this a reality in 2018 or 2022.”

The board already includes an impressive list of media luminaries including Robert A. Iger (president and CEO, The Walt Disney Company), John Skipper (ESPN’s executive vice president of content), and Joe Uva (Univision CEO).
