If Spain wants it is up for grabs for them with their current stadium boom.

They had it in 1982, England last had it in 1966. Stadiums are close in quality, as is history of football and passion for the game, etc., but that 16 year gap may be too much for FIFA to look beyond.

Blatter:

On China's chances of a successful bid for the 2018 FIFA World Cup™
It is very easy to answer that question. From the stadia we have seen available for the Women's World Cup and from what I know to be available for the Olympics, there is no doubt that China is able to bid for and organise a FIFA World Cup. However, we have not yet decided on the rotation system. That decision will come at the end of October, so I cannot say they could compete for the 2018 tournament. But once again, from a FIFA perspective, we give China's organisation of this competition five stars.

Belgium and The Netherlands will make a firm bid to host the World Cup in 2018. Neither country has ever had the tournament within its borders, so the final decision wil be an easy one.

Germany hosted it after 32 years. IMHO Englands deserves it, but that chance is not impossible

There isn't a single city on Earth capable of hosting a world cup by itself. You'd need at least 6 venues to allow the pitches to recover between fixtures, etc. Name a city with 6 40k venues?

I know you're thinking of London - Wembley, Emirates, Twickers (never going to happen), Stamford Bridge... New Charlton (will it happen), new West Ham (will it happen), Olympic Stadium (only if they abandon plans to cut it down after the Olympics), etc.

Blatter makes complimentary remarks about the country he's visiting... No shocks there then.

I think Spain must get it. England deserves too, but they host Olympics, so spain must have the WC.

Historically the opposite has been true with Mexico City hosting the Olympics in 68 and the WC in 1970, Munich in 72 and West Germany in 74 then the US in 94 and Atlanta in 96. The two events are not connected and if anything the expereince and infrastructure devolped for one can be carried forward to the next.

The only problem I could see for countries trying to host both in quick sucession is the cost of funding but in the case of England very little if any public money would need to be spent on football stadiums.

good post, its true historically having hosted a recent olympics or a world cup is an advantage not the opposite. Even Spain have hosted a a world cup in 82 and then the olympics in 1992.

But the Olympics is a Mickey Mouse tournament compared to the World Cup

Then they should've thought twice about the OGs.

No, seriously, I'm all for ENG18. Just, please don't let the Chinese get another stage...
