Hang on..Even Germany 2006 are using 3 stadia with athletics tracks around them!!

Australia would have no problem staging a 2014 World Cup

This is what you would see

MCG,Melbourne-100,000
Telstra Stadium,Sydney-85,000
StadiumWA,Perth-70,000
Telstra Dome,Melbourne-56,000
AAMI Stadium,Adelaide-56,000
Suncorp Stadium,Brisbane-53,000
Sydney Football Stadium,Sydney-46,000
Energy Australia Stadium,Newcastle-40,000
Townsville Stadium,Townsville-40,000
Canberra Stadium,Canberra-40,000

10 Stadiums listed
9 already built
5 will be true rectangular stadiums + 3 will be rectangular with use of retractable seating.
Only 2 will be oval grounds(MCG and AAMI).
Newcastle,Townsville and Canberra will need to be redeveloped
StadiumWA is currently proposed for Perth.

You put Essendon and Carlton together
Essendon, Carlton and Collingwood would be the only fans that could compare in terms of crowd energy.

Anzac day at the MCG is the most chilling sporting atmosphere I've ever been in, 95,000 (100k this year) silent for the 1 minute rememberance then the last post and the national anthem to honour the fallen, then it ends with thunderous cheer that doesnt stop fior 2 hours.

But sadly crowds such as that are a rare treat in the AFL.

when the Lions and the MIGHTY BOMBERS played in Brissie last year there was a deafening roar when Brisbane scored the winning goal. That is what you should hear in a stadium

FIFA Said after the Japan/Korea cup that will no longer organize a cup with 2 countries hosting it. Its too expensive.

If is too expensive to Japan and Korea, imagine Argentina and Chile... tsc tsc

I'm just happy we made it. As long as the boys play their hearts out and do us proud, i'm happy. I wouldnt be surprised if we didnt make the 16.

I am quietly optimistic though.

Viduka is scoring pretty much every second game for Boro. Kewell is playing his best football since signing for Liverpool, got MOTM the other night.

Moore is back from injury, played shit his first game back but is getting better. Cahill is playing well.

Aloisi and Bresciano and scoring goals for Alaves and Parma. Chipperfield scored 4 goals in 2 games for Thun.

So the boys are firing, perfect timing too.

Argentina and Chile would not be feasible

Ummm...sounds more like politics to me than anything else. I would not react either way. Bladder likes to read himself quoted in the newspapers often.

Brasil for 2014 is still the plan.

the only thing that could threaten Australia's chances of hosting the World Cup would be the quality and ranking of the squad - FIFA is not going to give the World Cup to a team ranked 50th.

I agree with sydney lad. Lions vs anyone? You have no idea. If your a Queenslander, at least mention State of Origin for atmosphere. As for interstate AFL sides, well Subi holds the atmosphere in better than AAMI (too open) so West Coast is probably the loudest.

As for a World Cup in Australia as early as 2014 (still 8 years away, plenty of building time)
MCG 101000 - Semi and Final
Telstra Stadium 83000 - Opening, Semi and 3rd place.
StadiumWA 65000 (capacity falls in rectangle mode) - Quarters
Suncorp Stadium 60000 (upper corners filled in) - Quarters
Adelaide ? AAMI wouldn't be acceptable
SFS or Telstra Dome (flip a coin to see Sydney or Melbourne having the second venue)
Gold Coast Stadium 40000 (expanded)
Energy Australia Statium 40000 (expanded)
Bruce Stadium 40000 (expanded)
Townsville new stadium 40000 (Dairy farmers is a cheap hole that wouldn't get past Fifa)
Possible Tassie stadium?

All this being said, Australia won't host 2014, Bazil will. If shit hits the fan the USA will before Argentina and Chile.

Are you sure its possible to fill in Suncorp's corners? I didnt think it was structually (seeing how one one side they built old lang park's grandstand into it) And i doubt it would take capacity up to 60k.

I think AAMI would be acceptable, perhaps with a minor upgrade in some sections. If not then Hindmarsh is a good new rectangle venue with plenty of room for a large expansion (with just that considered in the design). So Adeladie would be alright one way or the other.

Telstra Dome would get in over Aussie, larger capacity than AS and with Newcastle and maybe even Central Coast and Woolongong hosting matches NSW would be covered. I wonder whether FIFA would allow the only 1 city=2stads rule, after all it would be a shame to cut out either AS or TD. And the RWC proved that it is feasable.

I think the problem with the gold coast is the roof. I doubt it would be possible to expand upon it. And the stadium is't even built yet so i doubt any amount of modding or replacement would go ahead.

A complete rebuild of Dairy Farmers would be needed, thats what i meant. Cowboys fans have been calling for it anyway though, so hopefully it will happen.

USA again? they tried it once and it didn't work.

Victory.

I've heard that Hindmarsh can't be expanded. Will need to check up on that though.

Also, if it was between SFS and Telstra Dome, i have a feeling SFS would get it.

Solely because SFS is a rectangular ground and Telstra Dome is an oval.

We'll see what football is like at the Telstra Dome this year, when we come down the games will be held there. Can't wait
