By Associated Press Published: 00:55 EDT, 20 September 2018 | Updated: 00:55 EDT, 20 September 2018 TOKYO (AP) - Organizers of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics are concerned about it. So are those running next year's rugby World Cup in Japan, which opens in a year with Japan facing Russia on Sept. 20, 2019, in Tokyo. The concern? Natural disasters, like earthquakes and typhoons. Earlier this month, the strongest typhoon in 25 years hit the western part of the country, killing 11.

By Reuters Published: 00:54 EDT, 20 September 2018 | Updated: 00:54 EDT, 20 September 2018 Sept 20 (Reuters) - The Football Association of Ireland (FAI) has announced it will join England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland in exploring a potential bid to host the 2030 World Cup. Last month, the English Football Association announced plans to conduct a feasibility study along with Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The FAI confirmed it will be joining the study after "recent positive discussions amongst all parties". England, which hosted and won the 1966 World Cup, failed in bids to host the event in 2006 and 2018. The 2026 World Cup will be hosted jointly by the United States, Mexico and Canada, while a South American tri-nation bid involving Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay has already been announced for 2030.
