    Background: ZURICH, SWITZERLAND

    Italy will host the 1990 World Cup. The decision was announced in Zurich on May 19, following a vote taken by the executive committee of the Federation International Football Association (FIFA). The committee held a secret ballot, from which Italy emerged with the maximum 16 votes. FIFA President Joao Havelange, who made the announcement, did not take part in the ballot. Nor did the Soviet representative. The Soviet Union was one of the possible venues for the Cup. But sources close to FIFA disclosed that Moscow's decision not to take part in the Olympic Games, to be held in Los Angeles in July, might have led undecided FIFA committee members to vote for Italy. Italy's Football Association has said it has 15 grounds available including Rome's Flaminio Stadium, where the 1934 final took place. It can hold 130,000 spectators. Another likely venue, the San Paolo stadium in Naples, can handle 85,000 people. Other possible venues include Milan's Meazza stadium, and the Olympic stadium in Rome.
