Europe will get 2018 for sure, most likely England.

With China dropping out of 2022 bidding, it seems like a lock for the USA. China was the only country capable of matching what the USA can offer, as well as the potential to spread soccer through out the country. Australia just can't match up to the USA. The USA now can host the cup with 12 stadiums all over 70,000 and all less than 10 years old. Australia would have to build 40k stadiums that will be half empty most of the time after the WC. Also, would FIFA prefer to market the game to a country with 300 million people, or to one with 20 million people?

My favorites for WC 2018/2022 England and Australia, because they already have two championship outside Europe and because Australia is a country that has nothing to show

Apologies to my Australian friends but if you go to a top game in the A-League, all you will probably hear for 90 minutes is ‘Ozzie Ozzie Ozzie, Oi Oi Oi !!!’
Yeah, ok.

I think that England will get it. They haven't been hosting anything for many years (since EURO 1996) and they have much to say in FIFA.

I think you'll find that the German government bankrolled the 2006 finals in order to reap the financial benefits of hosting (and promote Germany as a tourist destination).

The Aussie government has already stated that the $45m pledged to the 2018/2022 bid is nothing compared to the financial benefits the country will gain if we win the bid.

Pretty sure the Olympics will have no bearing on weather England gets it or not.

The FIFA would rather see the World Cup in the US of 305 millions than in a big Island of 20 millions.

someone like blatter would maybe, but even he would want it in a country like australia where footie is growing more and more, i dont think the voters will give a stuff how many millions are in oz compared to the usa, if that was so important why didnt china even bother bidding?
australia is probably why china didn't bother!
