No, I don't really think Australia has a strong chance of hosting the World Cup for a fair bit yet, maybe when she's bumped her population up a bit.

i just don't know bout austrailia, it just to me looks like all the international sport events that they host (and host them very well) all end up very similar and there isn't the difference of an X factor in them. I dont want the world cup to be seen as a another 'thing' for the aussies to host.

You compared Sydney's AVE temp to Londons AVE MAX temp! ..Londons ave temp is not 72 deg,but 60degF.......its ave MAX temp is 72...Ave max temp in Sydney in winter is around 65degf

London is still warmer in summer than Sydney in winter.....but I was more thinking Brisbane compared to London and Sydney to Manchester......
Not a huge difference!!

It probably doesnt prove much,but you keep pointing to a fact that Football is not popular in australia,because it isnt the No1 sport....
Even at no4 in this country,its more popular than many of you think..

Well, if the question is, could Australia host a world cup in 2014?...yes, I think they could, but they'd still need quite a lot of stadium work done, and the weather might be a bit against them. But, if the quetion is, do you they they will host it in 2014?...then I think no! The point here is that Australia is standing by as a back-up option, if South America fails, and even then they might consider USA over Aussie.

But either way, it makes no difference, they can all fight it out for 2014, as long as 2018 goes to England!!!

issues, in my opinion, that australia has to confront before it launches a world cup bid:

- there is a need for more 40,000+ stadiums in alternative locations to the ones currently available.
- there is a perceived over-reliance on cricket grounds, as opposed to purpose-built stadia.
- there is a possible conflict with domestic sports seasons which might affect stadia availability.
- possible domestic disinterest in the event?
- your beer is rubbish.

Why have you put UK and Ireland, and Spain and Portugal together?????? That's just dam crazy! For starters, you'd never ever get a 5 country bid as ure suggesting with the UK and Ireland! The bids would be England, or Spain, cus neither would really need a partner country to co-host the event. England is looking the most likely option, cus they are nearly ready to host a World Cup right now, even without the big build that comes with a World Wup bid.

- there is a need for more 40,000+ stadiums in alternative locations to the ones currently available.

No doubt.....Canberra,Newcastle,Townsville would need to upgrade and Perth and Adelaide need to go from scratch.If this was acheived,we would have 19 Stadiums in 8 cities.....Fine!

- there is a perceived over-reliance on cricket grounds, as opposed to purpose-built stadia.

As above....therefore only 1 Cricket venue used...the 100,000 capacity MCG..


- there is a possible conflict with domestic sports seasons which might affect stadia availability.

AFL will get over it..

- possible domestic disinterest in the event?

you are kidding??..No chance of that!!..WC final of 2002 was the highest watch sporting event on Australian TV in 2002.Australia v Uruguay in 2005 WC playoff was attended by 85,000 people watched by )nearly)as many that watch the AFL or NRL Grand Final!



- your beer is rubbish.
ummmmmmm........no comment! LOL

Anyway, it'll probably be England's turn (although they stabbed us in the back for the 06 world cup). Spain hosted it in 82, England in 66 and I'd say England's got better venues to offer.

Yer, I know what you mean there. Loads of events that Australia host these days are full of people saying 'it just proves we can host an amazing tournament'....and you just think Enough already! There is too much emphasis on it being a sporting 'event' for Australia to host, and trying to show to people how many great 'events' can be held there, instead of just getting on with the thing and and concentrating on the sport itself! But, having said that, I think Australia would host a pretty decent WC, someday in teh future, when there is more enthusiasm for football and the satdium situation has improed a bit more.

2018 has gotta go to England, no doubt! Did you know that these next two World Cups -South Africa and South Ameerica (poss) will be the first time in its history, that the World Cup has ever been held outside Europe twice in a row. So it's gotta go back to Europe in 2018, and especially to England, the home of football!

China. The great thing about despotic regimes is that all the venues will be finished in time.
