I haven't looked at all of these, but the US page lists a stadium that will be torn down in a year as well as three that aren't wide enough for a FIFA sized field so I wouldn't trust this too much.

THE "No Worries" World Cup — that is the simple idea driving Australia's pursuit of the largest prize in world sport. After a tender process involving submissions from 50 companies, a handful have been selected to drive Australia's proposal — bankrolled to the tune of $46 million by the Federal Government.

And from that same article...

http://www.theage.com.au/news/sport/...23.html?page=2

STADIUMS

A consortium will carry out detailed work around infrastructure planning, architectural design and stadium modifications required for a successful bid. It will assess what changes are needed to existing stadiums and what new facilities would have to be built to meet FIFA bid criteria. This group includes HOK Sport Architecture and Cox Architects & Planning — already responsible for the redevelopment of Suncorp Stadium and design of the new Wembley and Swan Street stadiums.

For Melbourne, the new Swan Street stadium, which is under construction, would need to be expanded from its current capacity of 32,000 to seat 40,000. Small changes, mostly improvements to corporate facilities, also would be needed at the MCG, which would expect to host larger-drawing matches, including a semi-final and, possibly, final.

Planning is also required for the event "precinct" around match venues. Located between the two stadiums, Melbourne Park would be the preferred location for a massive media and broadcasting centre to host the world's press.

FIFA will not release its stadium criteria for the 2018 and 2022 bids until next month. Only then will nations bidding for the event know how many venues are needed. The current criteria requires at least 10 compliant venues. These would most likely be drawn from a possible pool, including Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium, the Gold Coast's Skilled Park or Carrara, the redeveloped Energy Australia Stadium in Newcastle, the Sydney Football Stadium, ANZ Stadium, Canberra Stadium, MCG, Swan Street Stadium and new venues in Adelaide and Perth. Launceston's Aurora Stadium is also under consideration.

State governments would be required to foot the bill for new facilities or stadium refurbishments. Buckley is meeting with all state premiers to inform them of the changes likely to be needed.

I think England have it sawn up already, weather or not it will be 2018 or 2022 is open for debate.

I'm sure Canada made a bid, didn't they?, if they did I would love for them to get it.

England don't have it sewn up at all - the bid team cannot afford to take the foot off the gas. Just look at the 2012 Olympic bid, Paris was overwhelming favourites yet London pipped it at the finish line.

Canada would require South Africa-esque building.

Right now one stadium, Edmonton, meets requirements...barely. I guess SkyDome and the Olympic Stadium would with grass installled.

Edmonton, Commonwealth Stadium - 60,081 (Grass)
Vancover, BC Place - 60,000 (Art. turf) - being renovated
Montreal, Olympic Stadium - 66,038 (Art. turf)
Toronto, SkyDome - 45,000 (Art. turf)

Another possibility is if Hamilton gets their PanAmerican Games stadium.

I guess Quebec City and Ottawa would also be included, I'm not sure who else though.

The other stadiums leave a lot to be desired.

South Africa in some cases chose to build new venues rather than use existing venues.

We bid with 7 existing venues.

Canada could do that as well, but they're going to require at least 4 from scratch. Unlike England, the US, or Japan.

Indonesia submits bid to host World Cup
1 day ago-March 14

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — Indonesia has submitted its bid to host the 2018 or 2022 World Cup, a bid official said Saturday.

The deadline for submissions of final bids is March 16, and Nugraha Besoes, secretary general of the All Indonesia Football Association, confirmed the nation's bid was sent on Tuesday to FIFA, soccer's governing body.

Indonesia is among nine countries that signaled their intention to bid in February, and is considered an outsider among that group.

The other countries that announced intentions to bid were: South Korea, Australia, Japan, England, Russia, Qatar, Mexico and the United States. South Africa will host in 2010 and Brazil in 2014.

Australia stadiums that could host the world cup games

MCG - capacity 100,000



ANZ Stadium - capacity 83,500



Telstra dome - capacity 56, 500



Suncorp Stadium - capacity 52,500



Aussie Stadium - capacity 45,500



These Stadium's could be easily upgraded to 40k-50k

Skilled Park - current capacity 27,400



Energy Australia Satdium - current capacity 26,100



Dairy Farmers Stadium - Current capacity 25,000



these are just a few that can be upgraded

Those joint bids have been accepted yes, but FIFA retains the right to reject them, whatever that means.

Fifa won't accept a joint bid of the Benelux. However the Euro2000 Benelux was verry succesfull. Benelux don't make a chance for hosting the WC'18, the Netherlands has 20 modern stadiums but they are to small for hosting a World Cup. Yeah and Belgium has even no stadiums at all. But the Dutch were succesfull for hosting the Fifa U19 '05 and Uefa U21 '07.

Engeland and Australia make a good chance to host the WC'18
