I don't think there is anything Politically Correct about doing it that way, it just makes a lot more sense. It will be the first time that it will be hosted in a Traditional Footballing Nation with the Stadiums to make it possible on such a large scale. Make use of a 64,000 Stadium for large in demand games wherever possible, and show off as many cities (regardless of whether they are traditionally touristy or not) and as many stadiums as is practically possible.

Sorry I meant Bristol is a small football city, with no clubs near the top division or capable of attracting 40,000+ crowds. I go to the city quite often and would want tourists to visit it, it's lovely!

I really expect Sheffield to get a new stadium that both football clubs could share. It's a big city with lots of tourist potential and the new stadium might not need to have temporary seating if the one of the city's football teams is successful enough to attract large crowds after the tournament.

Does anyone know which is a nicer city to visit out of Southampton or Portsmouth? Which would be most suitable for a WC stadium?

England gets Beckenbauer backing

Beckenbauer's backing is a big boost for England
Former Germany World Cup winner Franz Beckenbauer has backed England's hopes of staging the 2018 tournament.
Beckenbauer, a member of Fifa's executive committee, believes the continental rotation policy should end.

He told BBC Five Live's Sportsweek: "There is no better country in Europe to host the World Cup in 2018. England is the favourite."

England are set to launch an official bid next year, and the government has indicated its support.

Former sports minister Richard Caborn has already been appointed as World Cup ambassador.

And Beckenbauer, who headed Germany's organising committee for the 2006 finals, believes England have a great chance of hosting the event.

He added: "The most important thing is to end the rotation and bring the tournament back to Europe.

"The Premier League at the moment is the best league in Europe and the stadiums are outstanding.

"In my opinion, there is only one very serious candidate and it is England.

"I think there is not really a problem to pick a host of the 2018 World Cup."

Fifa president Sepp Blatter is expected to end the rotation experiment, but he insisted that Europe has no divine right to host the 2018 tournament.

Instead, Fifa are likely to approve a format which only precludes the continents which held the previous two World Cups from bidding again, which in 2018, would be Africa and South America.

Despite Beckenbauer's backing, England are expected to face strong competition from Russa and Italy among European countries, while Fifa may choose to give it to an emerging football nation such as China or Australia.

i think world cup must be held in Turkey.
First of all we love football very much.
Than our country located in two countinents.
Any world cup tournament held in this region of the world.
We have a rich callture.
We are famous for our hospitality.
We are working hard to improve intercominication network.
And we built new stadiums..
Here are the examples

Ataturk Olympic Stadium (82.000 Capacity)


Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium (52.000 capacity)


Ali Sami Yen Stadium (52.000 Capacity) constarction at the point of start


Kayseri New Stadium constraction run on


Izmir Ataturk Stadium (needs to renovated)

Yeah Bristol is a small football city in comparison to other english cities of its size. It would be Bristol City who would get a ground development / new stadium, as Rovers are getting a new ground to share with Bristol Rugby club in 2008. I really want Bristol to be part of this world cup bid, otherwise it just goes to the same old regions of the country.

At the moment I see sheffield being ahead of Leeds in getting a venue for our bid. I think sheffield also wants to host the commonwealth games in the future too, so maybe a stadium that could accomodate for this.

I have been to Southampton many times its not particularly a nice place, lots of concrete, and 1960's architecture. Although it does have good transport links.

Blatter says Europe no certainty to host 2018 World Cup, 1st Ld-Writethru
By CHRIS LINES, Associated Press Writer
July 28, 2007

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) -- Not so fast, Europe. The president of soccer's world governing body thinks Asia or North and Central America -- including possibly the United States -- could put on just as good a World Cup in 2018.

"Europe think they are privileged and they should have the World Cup, even in rotation, every third time, but why? There is no written rule they can have it. Other confederations have shown they can organize it," FIFA president Sepp Blatter said.

ADVERTISEMENT
FIFA, which is organized by continental confederations, has been rotating the World Cup among continents. After Japan and South Korea co-hosted the 2002 World Cup, Germany staged for Europe in 2006, South Africa will host in 2010 and Brazil is the only bidder for 2014, which has been designated for South America, meaning Asia or North America, Central America and the Caribbean should get a chance to host the world's most-watched sporting event before Europe does again.

"When it goes to rotation, the next confederation should be North America or CONCACAF, unless you consider the Americas together," Blatter said Saturday. "This is being studied and is in discussion and it will be very interesting."

Blatter was in Indonesia to attend Sunday's Asian Cup final between Iraq and Saudi Arabia, and said the event had been a "resounding success."

Asked whether that success would boost the chances of Asia hosting the World Cup in 2018, Blatter said he favors continued rotation between continents. However Europe wants the event to return there in 2018, with England among the leading bidders.

A decision on the 2018 host continent is likely to take place in November.

Blatter mentioned Australia, China and India as three nations in soccer's Asian region capable of hosting the next World Cup awarded to that confederation.

Of course I would like to see the World Cup come to Belgium+Holland. But England stand a far, far bigger chance, and is my second choice for sure. It's a logical, natural, sentimental choice: birthplace of football, 52 years since they organised it for the last time, 22 years since Euro 1996. That's a long time, even before the stadium boom of the late nineties.
True football culture, mixture of traditional and modern stadiums. Not to mention the settings: cities such as Liverpool, London, Manchester...

And yes, why not use more than the needed 10 stadiums? There are 60 matches in a World Cup Tournament...

Rotation should be:

Europe
Rest of the World

2018- England
2022- China
2026- Spain
2030- United States
2034- Italy
2038- Australia
2042- France

or

Europe
Americas
Rest of the World

2018- England
2022- China
2026- United States
2030- Spain
2034- Australia
2038- Mexico
2042- Italy

Africa, Asia, North America, and South America don't have enough nations that can host the WC therefore they don't deserve their own rotation spot.

Europe every other tournament is too much.

I think FIFA appears to have stumbled on the right format -- having hosted a finals tournament a confederation won't be allowed to bid for the next two tournaments.

Realistically, in a straight, non-political bid, it's hard to imagine too many countries being able to rival the major European nations for a football tournament.

He's pathetic.

China, yes. Australia, maybe. India? Has anyone here been to India in the last 5 years? Vibrant yes. Busy, certainly. But where exactly would they play the games, how would people get around, where would they stay, and how on Earth would the government be able to afford all the work required?

This is not intended as a flame, I like to think the best of people, and all of the Turks I have ever met have been decent people, but -- this is the image of Turkish 'hospitality' that is known outside of Turkey.

Quote:
Ali Umit Demir "was right" to stab Leeds Utd fans Kevin Speight, 37, and 40-year-old Christopher Loftus and was "a patriot".

These were some of the responses from Istanbul residents and workers hours after Mr Demir was sentenced to a total of 15 years for their murders.

Other residents said he had received a "very heavy sentence" which he "did not deserve".
No doubt there were 1000's of locals who rejoiced at the conviction of Demir, and condemned his actions, but the above kind of reporting is what Turkey is working against around the world.

For 2018, either they go with the history, tradition and the most deserving bid and go with England, or they go with $$$ and go with the US. My guess is probably England, but a US with the capacity infrastructure and dollars could get it as well.
