China should make a temporary seat over athletics track.


I think China has many good stadiums better and bigger than some countries in western.

Running tracks have not been an issue at the 2006 World Cup. Unless you are sitting in the first 5 or so rows its not too much of an issue. The 1966 had a running track around Wembley and that wasn't a problem, nor was it a problem at Berlin in 2006. If you could actually score a ticket to a World Cup match, why would you whine about something as trivial as a running track? Diving players is a far bigger problem than that.

The World Cup could well go to China in 2018, no reason why it wouldn't, in fact they are probably more on FIFA's agenda than England.

The problem with having a Cup in England is the over inflated prices. Devalue the pound and we'll consider you.

Also why would FIFA wish to preach to the converted when there is this great expanse of humanity known as China?

Agreed on the diving, but FIFA has made it quite clear that in reality they have no desire to deal with that problem.

The issue of running tracks is a personal one, and for me is to do with atmosphere. I went to 6 games at the world cup, at 5 different venues (3 of which had running tracks) - the venue which generated the best atmosphere? Cologne, without a running track (this despite seeing Croatias fanatical fans in Stuttgart and Berlin, and England's hordes in Nurenberg.

I know it's a pain in the backside for those outside Europe, but the reality is that the majority of tv and advertising money comes from Europe, the majority of teams in the comp come from Europe, and the majority of the world's travelling supporters are from Europe, add history, etc., and there's little chance of the finals staying out of Europe for a third tournament.

I'm 99% sure FIFA will go back to Europe for 2018, and if they do England would be a very hard bid to ignore as it seems to get better every month (latest being Everton's decision to build their new stadium outside Liverpool, therefore adding ANOTHER 50k venue to the potential bid).

2022 is going to be the most interesting bid for a long time, with one idea being that the finals will be open to any nation world wide, with the only constraint being that the hosts confederation of the previous finals will not be allowed to bid - roll on a battle between Asia (China, Australia), North America (USA, Mexico), South America (Argentina, Colombia) and Africa (Morocco... Libya, Egypt?)

The title of this thread is a tad misleading. It should read "China to bid for 2018 WC"

There were two threads with the same opening post... Perhaps you posted your comment on the other thread.

2018 World Cup will be hosted in Europe. It's a waste of time and money to even think about bidding for it for any nation outside Europe. With being by far the most important market, every second WC should be hosted there.

2022 might be a good chance for China. No doubt they could build some nice football arenas for a WC. But they really have to continue to improve their national team and league. Right now they're really not strong enough.

I'd say every third world cup for Europe's about right. I quite like the new thinking in FIFA that anyone can bid except for the previous two confederations to host. Hopefully that will be passed.

Running tracks aren't the real problem...Berlin Stadium held the WC 2006 final match even it's not a pure soccer stadium!
