In 2008, shortly after founding the MFA, then President Joe Foxon announced a World Cup for 2013. Initially, Stigistan and Rukora bidded, and in 2009, Wyke (the successor nation of Stigistan) and Rukora were elected to co-host the World Cup. However, in early 2011 Wyke pulled out of hosting after dissolving, and during the summer of the same year, Rukora were expelled from the MFA, relinquishing their hosting rights. In late 2011, new MFA President Barnaby Hands announced the re-opening of bidding, with Senya and the Dale Republic both eventually bidding. On March 5, 2012, through a Facebook poll in MicroGroup, Senya won the rights to host the World Cup, receiveing 5 of the 8 votes.
The Football Association of the Democratic Environmental Society of Senya (FADESS) has officially named eight candidate Stadiums in five host cities (Norwich, Lenwade, Reepham, Briston and Melton Constable). FADESS has stated that it is looking in to renting Carrow Road Stadium for the final. However, FADESS has also stated that if this does not happen, it will look instead to other grounds nearby, such as Dereham Town's Aldiss Park.
