The Moon has been selected to host the 2026 World Cup it was announced today.
FIFA are keen to bring the World Cup to places that are undeveloped in economic and football terms and the Moon's bid fulfilled both those criteria.
The lack of stadiums, people to watch, gravity and atmosphere were not seen as a problem by the voting delegates as new technology would overcome that.
As the Moon is not within the Earth's atmosphere it would also be a carbon neutral tournament and lunar warming is not currently a problem.
The owners of the Moon were delighted at the outcome of the voting and said it was a completely transparent and fair outcome and the recent discovery of oil on the Moon was not relevant.
