Well i dont think that they al should be in Europe but at least every third rotation should be in Europe, fifa should not stay so strictly with this rotation policy as europe deserves more.

I know.

Btw; I don't see when Australia coulnd't host it, why China couldn't. They've got the capacity. All modern stadiums. Politics and sports shouldn't be woven but kept apart.

Beijing - Olympic - 90.000
Guangzhou - Guandong Stadium - 80.000
Shanghai - Shanghai Stadium - 80.000
Beijing - Workers Stadium - 72.000
Shenyang - Wulihe Stadium - 65.000
Wuhan - Wuhan Stadium - 60.000
Guangzhou - Tianhe Stadium - 60.000
Qingdao - Yizhong Center - 60.000
Chonqing - Olympic Sports Centre - 57.000
Dalian - People's Stadium - 55.000
Shenyang - Shenyang Sports Center - 55.000
Changsha - Helong Stadium - 55.000
Xi'an - Jiaodaruisun Stadium - 51.000
Hangzhou - Huanglong Stadium - 48.000
Jinan - Shandong Stadium - 44.000
Qingdao - Hongchen Stadium - 40.000
Chengdu - Sichuan Stadium - 40.000
Shaoguan - Shaoguan City Stadium - 40.000
Beijing - Olympic Sports Centre - 40.000
Kunming - Tuodong Stadium - 40.000
Lanzhou - Qilihe Stadium - 40.000
Chengdu - Chengdu Sports Center - 40.000
Hong Kong - Hong Kong Stadium - 40.000

I am not sure if Europe gets it again until 2022.

Asia/Oceania - 2002
Europe - 2006
Africa - 2010
Americas - 2014
Asia/Oceania - 2018?
Europe - 2022?

Umm the general consensus is that it should or could be europe more often then other continents as there are alot more footballing nations in europe and are more prepared to host the world cup. also Europe is the Major continent for football, where traditions and cultures of football is kept alive, unlike certain others that i can mention (USA? JapanKorea?)

Yu spake inglish veri gud yu kno???


Anyway, I think the 2018 World Cup should be in England, FIFA are ceasing their rotation policy after 2014, because without it Africa would have never got a world cup at all. The current FIFA boss says the 2018 World Cup should be in England as it is 'the home of football'

Japan/Korea 2002 used temporary seating for some of their WC Stadia....

In China's case I'd guess there would be no shortage of funds to build new stadia if needed.

Yeah and wot a legacy that left. NOT!

the main problem i have is that i think countries that want to host a world cup need to first establish football as a major sport in their country and not use the world cup to do this, cos the tournament then looses its true identity(USA?)

Hopefully Germany will show what the world cup is really about as most european countries have the passion instilled into them.

True..Brisbane,Sydney and Perth in the middle of "winter"(June/July) would have a similar climate to a German or English Summer.

The average attendance at the Australian A-League is higher than the premier national leagues of
-Portugal
-Belgium
-Russia
-Sweden
-Korea
-Norway
-Denmark
-China
-Romania
-Greece
-Switzerland
and most Euro Leagues except obviously the big ones(England,Spain,Italy,Germany etc)
