And let's face it, selling a world cup down here is a lot harder than selling one in England.

Indonesia joins race to host 2018, 2022 World Cup


ZURICH, Switzerland (AP) — Indonesia has joined the race to host the World Cup in 2018 or 2022

The Indonesian football federation officially expressed interest in staging one of the tournaments to FIFA late Tuesday, becoming the sixth potential host to show interest ahead of Monday's deadline.

England, Japan, Qatar, Russia and a joint Spain-Portugal candidacy have already declared intentions to bid.

Other contenders including Australia, a combined Belgium-Netherlands-Luxembourg proposal, Canada, China, Mexico and the United States are expected to enter the first stage of a two-year selection process before the cutoff.

Though its team is currently No. 144 in the FIFA world rankings, Indonesia fulfills one major requirement of hosting the world's most-watched sports event -- it has a stadium capable of holding at least 80,000 spectators for the opening match and final.

The government-owned Bung Karno Stadium in the capital Jakarta has a capacity of 88,000 and staged the 2007 Asian Cup final, when Iraq beat Saudi Arabia 1-0.

Indonesia has previously made World Cup history.

It became the first Asian nation to play at a World Cup, at the 1938 tournament in France under its colonial name of the Dutch East Indies. The team lost 6-0 to eventual runner-up Hungary in a first-round match at Reims.

Indonesia was quickly knocked out of qualifying for the 2010 World Cup being played in South Africa. It advanced through the Asian first round when opponent Guam withdrew, then lost 11-1 to Syria in a two-legged series in November 2007.

FIFA began the process of choosing the 2018 and 2022 World Cup hosts two weeks ago. It will issue official bid forms next month, which must be returned by March 16.

Candidates capable of providing around 12 stadiums each holding at least 40,000 fans can apply for either the 2018 or the 2022 tournament, or for both.

FIFA said no South American country can apply for either tournament because Brazil is hosting the 2014 edition. African countries can bid only for the 2022 event because South Africa is hosting next year.

The hosts will be chosen by FIFA's 24-man executive committee in December 2010.

If successful, Indonesia would be the second World Cup host from Asia. The 2002 tournament was played in Japan and South Korea.

Yeah...
Indonesia bids to host World Cup!!

Note:Indonesia held Asian Cup 2007 and AFF Cup (ASEAN Region) 2008 Successfully!

Indonesia? Now there's an interesting bid.

I'd actually like to see them given a shot. I think it slips people's mind how big Indonesia is sometimes.

If they want a WC in 2018 or in 2022 they should really not miss the chance and fight them self cause then they would have to wait at least 8 years for another try...out of the ones who you mentioned, at least for 2022 China and Japan might have the biggest chances. Let's not forget when Japan and S. Korea bided together they both had 10 stadiums each, enough to host a WC on they're own.

From Asia, China and Australia are the only serious bidders. Qatar, Japan and Indonesia are delusional for wasting a dime on making a bid. Zero chance!

Strongly suspect that Qatar's bid is only going in so that they can make a deal with another bidder and withdraw later - it's leverage and nothing else.

Would say the same about Indonesia, but their massive population sways me to thinking that perhaps they are looking at using a world cup bid as a way to kick-start a lot of urban projects, generate improved facilities for their league, etc. - South Africa and Brazil both seem to be using their hosting commitment as a way to inspire and ensure growth and improvement far beyond the needs of the world cup in a way that will improve their nations for a lot more than just a month during the finals.

So, the deadline for deciding to bid for 2018/22 is next Monday (2.2.2009):

So far we have England, Spain/Portgual, Netherlands/Belgium, Russia, Qatar and Australia as official bidders. Indonesia looks almost certain as well. Japan have also expressed an interest though I don't believe it's official yet.

Does anyone know what's happening with regard to the USA and China? They've not got long to make their minds up!

US Soccer Federation has called a press conference for Monday to announce their bid. Rumour is that they will focus 100% on 2022. Makes sense because 2018 will certainly go to Europe. The might as well try and back somebody else for 2018 in order to get their own back scratched for 2022.

I think 2022 will be between USA, Australia and China (if they bid)

i hope it would be in Qatar, Indonesia, or Australia because its interesting to see WC being held in countries other than european countries. Africa got 2010, America got 2014 with Brazil, then 2018 should be in Asia Pacific, following FIFA's intention to switch continents every other world cup.

It doesn't have to be about rotation and still Australia/Indonesia is what I'd like to see. It's not because they haven't hosted it yet (rotation), it's because they might actually turn out to be great hosts and most importantly their football (especially Indonesia!) would use a boost like that so much. It could grow large. Even though it's huge already.

Certainly wouldn't award it to China. Contrary to Indonesia who have immense love to football and matchday attendances, China builds huge stadiums for ego rather than a footballing legacy. Of course they might fill each and every stadium, but at the end of the day none of their clubs could match any of the big Indonesian ones in terms of popularity and this doesn't seem to be changing any time soon. So in my omain, if Asia/Pacific at all, then certainly not China and Quatar, nor Russia! None of these countries will need so many so big stadiums soon (with Russia being closest to needing them). The rest may fight for the best bids and I'll enjoy watching.

I'd also be rather against the USA (or: I wouldn't support them for sure), but for rather "social fairness" reasons which aren't all too sensible.

Russia has a chance? Would be nice
Well, I guess Europe and Asia will split 2018 and 2022 so m.p. Europe will get 2018.

it makes a lot of sense for it to return to Europe in 2018. if not, Europe would have had to wait 16 years (presuming they get 2022) to get to be hosts again. For a continent who provides the most teams out of any other confederation and where the world's best players play that is too long to wait.

They will also announce who the executive director of their bid will be.

Even the thing it won't host it each 8 years seems a way too harsh...
