Football should come home again in 2018. A World Cup in England will certainly be long overdue by then. England last hosted the World Cup in 1966, meaning by 2018 it will have been 52 years. When you consider that Germany hosted the World Cup just over 30 years ago and are now hosting it again, I think that it's only fair it returns to England.

I agree. It's the perfect timing and motif to get some brand new stadia like you are doing.

I don't know much about the World Cup, but my City, Indianapolis, is seriously considering going after some portion of the event. We are currently building a 70,000 seat retractable roof stadium in our downtown and I know the Sports Corporation is looking to the World Cup to boost our international profile.

With regard to hosting the World Cup, in most respects, there's little to choose between England and Spain.

However, the main reason why England, and not Spain, should be the next European country to host the World Cup is that England last hosted the World Cup in 1966 and Spain last hosted the World Cup in 1982.

No need for further debate on the matter.

Unlike the Oylimpics I think this is actually a pretty major influence on the choice, other than political influence I'd guess a big reason why Germany got a second WC before us was that only West Germany hosted in 74.

No it was because just before the decision had been made, Englishman had disgraced our name by going on drunken rampages in the very Flemish Towns that their great-grandfathers had died to protect the safety of.

If I'd been a FIFA Delegate I'd have voted for Germany.

Ricardo Teixeira is married with the daughter of João Havelange, which was president of FIFA for 20 years and is still honorary president), TOLD BLATTER to make the public criticism of Brazilian stadiums. Teixeira agreed so completely with Blatter criticism... I think Teixeira wanted Blatter to scare the brazilian public and politicians, so real and solid measures to ALREADY start planning new stadiums to be rushed.

People... we are now in 2006... the World Cup is in 2014!!!!! Brazil can build stadiums in 8 years. We hosted a World Cup in 1950 and built the largest stadium in the world for that World Cup. We can do it again.

Hosting a World Cup is much easier than hosting the Olympics. We only have to build or reform 12 stadiums which will be used for the most popular sport in the country. 12 stadiums spread around the country. In the Olympics, you have to build a lot of different style stadiums and arenas and also the olympic Village... all in ONE city... and many of those stadiums will never be used again, since many sports are not really popular outside olympics.

actually, it was a brazilian who said that. Obviously, very exagerated. But trully, Buenos Aires is home to 12 million Argentines... out of a country population of what? 35-40 million?

Buenos Aires alone has 16 professional football clubs!!!!

yes, and hosting a WC is the perfect excuse to build new ones.

The only modern stadium in Brazil right now is Arena da Baixada, in Curitiba.

I think Brazil has enough time to build & remodel stadiums and its infrastructure and to me it seems fair that Brazil hosts the World Cup in 2014.
But if such thing happens of Brazil not hosting, as a Mexican I think the world cup should be awarded to Australia as a front-runner. However the thing is that FIFA wants to keep the 2014 WC in the American continent.

In case of Brazil not hosting, here are my top hosts....

1)Australia
2)Mexico
3)USA
