Is very unlikely that Fifa will choose Mexico for 2018 world cup - reasons : 2014 world cup in latin america already, in Brazil - probably the next host will be in other area of the globe - other reason that goes against Mexico's bid - they hosted in 1970 and 1986 - seriously , three world cups in 50 year gap to a country that don't have a strong national team in world cups would be quite random....

Well id say England has about a 85 -90% chance of hosting it in 2018, and the US is going to host it again before Mexico does.

Live with it buddy .. we here in Australia, and the Asian region in general (had to include that otherwise it would look as if I was whinging on behalf of just 20 mill people), have been waking up or staying up anywhere between midnight and 5am to watch football matches. If we get it then for 4 weeks you can put up with it if you really love the game and support your team(s).

How did you do it for Japan/Korea??? Suffer!!

i was answering the brazilian who said Mexico would never have it because We dont have a strong team, not because the things we have to offer.. it is obvious that England and USA will have the following worldcups.. however the reasons for that are not that they have a strong national team, because they dont. I dont see England winning the world cup again for a long time..

We the heard the same remark when Melbourne hosted the 2006 Commonwealth Games " You have staged the best Commonwealth Games ever- crowd goes nuts!". You see we areleaders, Atehns had a lot of bad press and 30 years to pay off Olympic Debt, Beijing is already screwed and from what I hear from town planner friends in London, its going to manin for 2012.

Melbourne alone is building a world class Soccer Stadium, if you go to OZSCRAPER and click VIC down the bottom you will see a topic called" rectangluar stadium", that will be done by the end of next year. We are in preperation for the World Cup as it may seem. We have a booming A League with many International Players playing for our teams, and Famous Greek team alone cant remember what one is going to have their international base at our new stadium in Melbourne. Now...

Add with the boom in Brisbane and Perth, along with tourists and migrants flociking to Australia and our excellent reputation, me thinks we will get in verty soon.

I would also like to comment on how some readers belive Australia isnt on the world radar in North America. What a load of shit, many Australian travel and do student exchange, not to mention the amount who are taking over Hollywood and as for the Kylie Minogue comment, she was just there 2 weeks ago on Danicng with the Stars!. People know where we are and often aspire to be like us, just speak to American backpackers whop dont want people to know they are from the US, and the refuse to say they are Canadian as they belive Canada is backwards.

In essence we will host the games and we will host the best games aswell!

Cheers.
Im not hating on Australia, I love the country, but i dont know a single person in the US who would rather be Australian.

Like yourself nothing against the USA but...likewise, i cant say ive met an Australian who wishes they could become a US citizen, though can say i've met a few American travellers who wish to stay in Australian...none the less, what does this have to do with Australia's 2018-beyond chances?

I'm with Mexico if I have to choose between Mexico and USA but not if other countries join the race. There are still many countries left which have huge football popularity and can afford to host World cup but haven't had the honor or had the honor so long time ago - Russia, Turkey, China, Netherland and Belgium, Sweden and Norway, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, England, Spain, Argentine...

I believe that Australia can host a great world cup as can many other countries. I do hope that Fifa take a serious look at the past events that Australia has held. Maybe not 2018 or 2022 but we will one day host it and host it well.

I guess some may just pass this off as another Aussie talking up their country but we did host one of the two biggest sporting events in the world. I think we could host the other and so do many other non Australians.

I dont think i've spoken to any other Australians that SERIOUSLY believe we will get 2018 or 2022...and some of them dont think we will host ever...infact the British i've spoken to seem more confident in us winning 2018.

Oceania Football Confederation will support Australia's bid(on the record). Thats 11 votes for starters. Now we need to get the Asian Football Confed on board. Possibly another 45 votes.

The Italians are on our side. Surely we can get the Greeks, Turks, eastern Europeans on board thanks to some good deals.

Africa and the Americas needs work.

What the English seem to forget is, they thought 2006 was in the bag. The Krouts trumped them and the Africans.

It is all about politics and deals, not about what is fair and just. As Australians we suffered for many, many years in Oceania. Didn't see England giving us a leg up. It's everyone for themselves. You would think England would get it, but you just never know.

? That would make the bid only better no?
Atleast two stadiums which are up to date and big enough. Then I am only counting one in Lisboa.

To host a FIFA world cup the host nation will need 13 votes from the FIFA executive.

(a) CONMEBOL vice-president (1) members (2)
(b) AFC vice-president (1) members (3)
(c) UEFA vice-presidents (2) members (5)
(d) CAF vice-president (1) members (3)
(e) CONCACAF vice-president (1) members (2)
(f) OFC vice-president (1) member (–)
(g) the four British Associations vice-president (1) member (–)


If England can secure the 7 UEFA votes, the one British vote, the 4 African votes and bully a vote out of the OFC like Germany did to win the right to host the 2006 World cup then the world Cup 2018 is theirs.

It is a politcal decision at the end of the day.

England actually is my favorite for the 2018 world cup, and I think they have much more tradition on football than Mexico - they won a world cup , they have the premier league, one of the most famous footbal tournaments of the planet and there are a lot of super stars playing there or British playing around the world - thy have much more status in the football world than Mexico has in the moment .

And The Usa is an economic powerhouse and the $$$ that Fifa would get from american endorsements for the cup would compensate their lack of football tradition; also they proved in different events that they can pull it off a huge event like a world cup.
