No co-hosting, says Blatter

FIFA president Sepp Blatter has cast a significant stone into the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bidding battle by ruling out joint candidacies.

That will infuriate officials behind the projected co-hosting campaign already informally under way on behalf of Belgium and Holland and will doubtless see Spain unceremoniously dump neighbours Portugal.

All four countries will have to review their ambitions before next February 2 which is FIFA's deadline for initial statements of intent.

Blatter's clarification of FIFA's inherent dislike of joint bids came in Asuncion, Paraguay, where he was attending the congress of the South American confederation, CONMEBOL.

Answering questions at a press conference, Blatter said: "As long as we have single-country bids which provide all the necessary guarantees we will reject co-hosting bids. As of this moment we have no candidates at all for 2018 and 2022 but I am sure this will have changed by the start of next week."

Single-entry bids are certain from England, Russia, the United States, Australia, Qatar and probably China. Blatter reminded his audience that the precedent for discounting joint bids had been set in the campaign for 2010 when FIFA discounted a Tunisia-Libya plan.

spain will probably pull out now then, they only wanted portugal with them because spain hosted it not to long ago anyway.
good decision because there would of been too many euro bids and too much dodgy dealings going on with the sneaky russians.

On the other hand, you could ask why these countries went so far down the road with their bids despite there being a clear precedent for rejection of joint bids in 2010.

Their insistence in putting in bids and Blatter's silence till now suggests to me the countries in question know the ruling but are hoping to persuade FIFA to overturn it and Blatter is willing to be persuaded of their case.

He is even more an idiot as he was encouriging The Netherlands and Belgium to bid as a co-hosting organization just a couple of months ago. And what should be the decisive factor here. The stadiums in Belgium and The Netherland are closer togther than stadiums in England or Spain/Portugal or many other large countries for that matter. And are therefore very close to the fans in the UK, Germany and France. Strategically it basically is the best location overall! (so, WE should get it every 4 years ).

Now Spain can hardly rebid on their own in such a short notice, so that is one big competitor for England out of the way. I do not know what to think of that move.

i suppose he still has to try get joint bidders to bid incase the single bidders do fail to guarantee a wc can be hosted, spain and portugal can still bid and hope england and russia fail to convince them, hard to know with fifa, besides i dont think the joint bids stood a chance anyway.

Blatter said several times that a joint bid Spain-Portugal would be very strong and would have real chances to get it.

He is an idiot if he has changed his opinion at this point.

(And I support us bidding alone, but Blatter's words are ridiculous now).

This is such bullshit. After all the times he supported the spain/portugal and benelux bids, he now says this?

It irritates the shit out of me how FIFA can just change rules when they fell like it.

Mexico to bid for 2018 or 2022 World Cups

http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/feedarticle/8335707

* Reuters, Friday January 30 2009


MEXICO CITY, Jan 30 (Reuters) - Mexico is to submit a bid to host the 2018 or 2022 World Cups.
"We have sent our application to enter the process," Mexican Football Federation (FMF) general secretary Decio de Maria told a news conference on Friday.
"Mexico has raised its hand (and offered) to host a third World Cup."
The Mexicans hosted the tournament in 1970 and 1986, stepping in 23 years ago when Colombia pulled out.

Looks like England now has a lock for 2018.

The stage is set for 2022 though.

With Blatter you'll never know. I believe the bids must be in before februari 2nd, after that FIFA will decide which will drop out of the race. The Netherlands and Belgium are still in there.

Does anyone know when the final list of candidates will be announced? As for getting rid of joint bids, to be honest I think in the case of Portugal and Spain bid it is a good thing Spain has the ability to host it on their own and Portugal hardly need a major championships they just had the EUROs and had plenty of new stadiums built Spain was just being a bit lazy in my eyes. I feel for the BENELUX bid because in all honesty there is no way that any of the nations could host the WC on their own. I personally still expect both bids to be launched in (the Spain bid will drop Portugal). There should be a very good strong list for 2018 and 2022, possibly the most candidates there has ever been for a world cup. For me 2018 should go to England after that I'm not quite sure, Indonesia sounds interesting but at the same time I just don't think it will be feasible. The US bid is the most obvious choice for 2022 but it doesn't really excite me. Anyway there is still a long time between now and I think it's 2011 when the hosts will be chosen anything can happen between now and then especially in the current economic climate.

So, to update things... 'Confirmed' bids (with duel hosts removed)

England
Australia
Russia
USA
Mexico
Japan
Indonesia
Qatar
(have I missed any?)

Strongly suspect that the Netherlands and Spain will now put in solo bids.

IMO, 2018 will go to England and 2022 to China, 2026 to Turkey, 2030 to Argentina, 2034 to the Unified Korea...
