When you're up against countries with no running tracks they could be seen as a problem. They're not ideal, let's put it that way.

I want vote China 2018 to host world cup but....China to wait until 2026 to host FIFA World Cup by Hayatou said(FIFA vice president)!!

2006-03-22 09:25:47 Xinhua English



BEIJING, March 22(Xinhua)-- China will host the Olympic Gamesin less than two years time. But it may have to wait 20 years to stage soccer's World Cup, according to FIFA vice-president Issa Hayatou.

Hayatou said here on Wednesday that under FIFA's continental rotation policy on the host of the World Cup, Asia could next stage the World Cup in 2026 after South Korea and Japan co-hosted the quadrennial event in 2002.


He said China will have a fairly good chance of winning the right to host the 2026 World Cup if it lodges a bid.


"You have very good facilities, and your economy enjoys a high growth, so you are capable of staging the World Cup," Hayatou tolda press conference.


A 10-man FIFA delegation headed by Hayatou wrapped up a two-daytour of Beijing on Wednesday to inspect the Chinese capital's preparations for the soccer tournament of the 2008 Olympic Games.


But Hayatou added that China's chance also depends on how many Asian countries intend to stage the World Cup.


Nicolas Maingot, an official at FIFA's media department, said FIFA has yet to decide on the sites, or even the continents, for the World Cups beyond 2014.


"For the moment, the only dates which are confirmed are 2010 for South Africa, and 2014 for South America," Maingot told Xinhua. Enditem

J heard FIFA rules state you can have a maximum of 2 stadiums with running tracks for hosting the World Cup.

Germany had two, Berlin and Stuttgart.

They don't want it to be like Japan/Korea whereby nearly all of the stadiums had running tracks.

No one really cares about athletics except during the olympics and maybe world championships. An athletics track in the Olympic stadium is necessary of course, but why everywhere else? You only need track facilities to train. You dont need to wrap a stadium around so many running tracks.The stadiums are for football mainly arn't they?

And Nurenberg.

Perhaps the ruling is a maximum of 2 out of the minimum 8 can have running tracks?

Sorry to bring this up again - but - Sepp doesn't have to ring anyone... The bid won't be put infront of the bigwigs at FIFA unless it meets the criteria. It won't meet the criteria if the stadiums aren't available. Availability of the stadiums would be decided between the venue owners, their chief tenants, the FFA, and the state governments. If the AFL/NFL clubs kicked up a fuss, it would be hard to get the venues freed up in order for the bid to go in... Add to that the 'good will' issue - it's one thing to tell the AFL/NFL to like it or lump it if the bid is a success - but if the bid fails (as most do), then you've p*ssed your main tenant off and got nothing in return.

As I said before - get the A-League right, build stadiums for football, THEN bid for the finals.

Don't worry guys, China will build some pure football stadiums if it's confirmed that they will be the host!

Exactly.
Why would FIFA want to hear the AFL's whining (valid or not) when China will offer up a next to perfect bid?

In a country the size of China I'd guess 3-4 big athletics stadiums maybe needed but I think the typical reason for many of these stadiums is political PR. If your spending massive amounts of public money on a staduim adding an athletics track gives the impression that its for the benefit of the widest possible section of the community. Of course 90% of the time this is total BS and you just end up with an inferior soccer stadium that rarely if ever attracts athletics events large enough to warrent its track.

Now, I'm not sorry to bring this one up again...

I'm getting very parochial about this - how come we have 2 Liverpool stadiums and 2 Manchester stadiums and only 1 in the Midlands, 1 in the North East? Besides the fact that rules would get in the way of the 2 stadiums in 1 city, it's an un-natural collection of stadia geographically - there's not THAT many people in the North West - if both of those cities get 2, then Birmingham and/or the North East should get a 2nd...

Get the Sunderland Stadium of Light (or, if we're ignoring the rules, Villa Park) on there!!
