Get out and show your support for England’s 2018 World Cup bid by wearing your football shirt to work next Tuesday 24 August.

Wear Your Shirt To Work Day will be celebrated all over the country and is supported by the Mayor of London and Visit London.

The date marks 100 days to go until we find out if England’s bid to host the World Cup in 2018 has been successful. If it is, London will be one of the 12 host cities, with matches played at four London stadiums.

The host country will be announced on 2 December 2010.

Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, said:

“The boys might not have brought the World Cup home this summer but we’re right on track to bring the tournament here in 2018. In 100 days’ time we could all be World Cup winners and surely nowhere in the world could host a better World Cup Final than our great capital. So whoever you support I’m urging you to get your kit on and back the bid.”
