    Nottingham has been chosen as England's first City of Football ahead of rivals Manchester and Portsmouth.

    The three cities were selected by Sport England from 22 bids because of their commitment to promote the sport at grassroots level.

    Nottingham will receive 1.6m in National Lottery funding to run a two-year pilot programme.

    The city was praised by Sport England for its new ideas for "getting more people playing the national game".

    It would all depend on how good their bid was compared to the others.
