The winning nation should host it. If that means a smaller World Cup one year, then so be it.

Just wondering what you think of this. How about having a single elimination tournament where the better seeded team hosts the game, but no single country hosts the tournament....... Kind of the like playoffs in the US.... That's a view from a person with very little knowledge of the World Cup.......

I dont think Australia should host 2018 world cup because as stated by others, it would mean 16 years for WC away from europe. So I say England 2018 but Australia should bid for 2022.
You shouldn't think of Australia as 20 million people because FIFA rightly sees it for all intensive purposes as part of Asia. In TV terms, when Australians are waking up at 3am to watch Germany06, so will the chinese, Japanese, Korean and other Asian fans. An Australian world cup would be in an ideal timezone to reach the east asian audience that holds so much potential for FIFA.

Even though most of the world's population lives closer to Australia's time zone (contrary to what you euros might think) australia just doesn't seem right to me. It might be beacuse the nation itslef only has 20 million people and only a few large cities capable of sustaining 40 000+ stadiums.

Hears the deal Englanders. We'll support you lot for 2018 if yous promise to talk up Australia over China for 2022. Think of it as a protest if China haven't sorted out human rights abuses by then. Japanese/Koreans/Indians and others would be less reluctant to visit Australia than China which is hostile to Japan.
I think China would host a better World Cup the next time its Asias turn like 2034/2040 or something.
Also, by 2020, i think football will be probably number 2 code in Aust. We would take it seriously and give the game the centre stage it deserves.

England for 2018!!!

It's been long enough, and they surely have the facilities and interest. The only problem could be England's soccer hoons, but they manage to go to every world cup wherever it is so that cannot be avoided anyway.

It would be nice if the 2018 world cup would be held in one of the ex eastern block countries, such as Czech republic, Slovakia, Poland, Ukrain, Rusia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria or a combination of two or more of these countries. These countries deserve it and I gurantee you would have a much better world cup than in say Germany or England. By the way I doubt North America will get a world cup anytime soon because part of the deal to get the 94 cup America had to set up a Soccer league(MLS), unfourtunetly this league is not doing so well and has never turned a profit.

The World Cup is supposed to be fun for the fans! I think I'd rather go and watch it in Iraq than any of those godforsaken grey and dreary hell holes.

At least Iraq has plenty of sun. Those Eastern European nations do have a disproportionate amount of incredibly attractive women, or maybe I had too much of the local brews whilst visiting!

I doubt we'll see that(well maybe Russia) as those nations can also go for the european championships which are much more inline with their resources when it comes to stadiums.

Greece hosted the Olympic games which is a huge event but as we don't have so many big stadiums and mostly because we don't need them, I'd vote for Spain which is a very nice country with warn and sunny weather and foremost capable of hosting an event of this calibre.

I agree, I can't imagine the World Cup being hosted in Greece - just not got a big enough league and population, besides Basketball is almost as big as Football there, if my understanding is right? You did however host a superb Olympics, I wish it came to Greece more often.

Oh yes let's let the wonderful Greeks hold more Olympics so that these idiots can poison all the strays and send gangs around with iron bars to break their backs leaving these dogs to endure slow, painful deaths. The Greeks should never be allowed to host an Olympics ever again. In fact, they should be banned from competing for the next 50 years as punishment. Scum.

I think we have a very good chance of getting it, and I know you were only joking, but I think our biggest fallback is the way we automatically think we're entitled to it, just because we invented the game, and its been a while since we've hosted it. We'll need to have a better bid than Spain if we're going to get it. Emotional claims to being the "home of football" (when at the same time we make the boast of it being the "world's sport) really isn't going to do anything for any of the FIFA Delegates voting.

We've got other excellent reasons for hosting it, better to play on these.

Spain is deffinitely not foremost capable of hosting an event of this calibre! England, despite it's very unpredictable climate and weather conditions, is far more suited to holding sporting events then Spain, for lots of deifferent reasons, such as bigger budgets, better organisation, more support, higher number of higher quality stadiums, and a severe lack of racist football supporters when compared to Spain. I don't have anything against Spain here btw, I'm just stating the facts of the matter.

The weather in England is far superior to that of Spain (or anywhere else in the world come to that) with regards football. It's perfect for it.
