No doubt, London: Twickenham for Rugby, Wembley for Football, Wimbledon for Tennis, Lords for Cricket, the list goes on.
Melbourne: MCG for Cricket, MCG for rugby, MCG for Football, MCG for Athletics, Rod Laver Arena for Gymnastics, Rod laver Arena for Tennis, Rod Laver arena for Basketball. Oops the so called Sporting Capital has the same shi****g -place for everything.

You're right. But the alphabetic order is made in French, since it's FIFA's first official language (well, FIFA is also in French). And that's why it would be Spain/Portugal.

Guys,
Do you wanna see the WC 2018/2022 played on Mars here is the venue which will dry out soon in a few decades due to climate change and inaction from the local government.

This will be the face of the hundreds of thousands of fans and worst of all the Football players in pain and breathing discomfort, if Sydney, OZ is to host the FIFA WC 2018/2022. Who knows this happened on 24-Sept-09, could very well happen in July/Aug 2018 & 2022. The climate change has lead to 9 yrs of drought around Sydney area in this decade degrading from 3 for every decade earlier. Sure, people would play in high altitude Mexico or some South American city than going to Mars.

I talked to a guy from Melbourne who doesn't support the bid because he thinks the FFA treats fans like crap.

Don' t take it in a derogatory way.
Sydney is a good city, but the truth is that if nothing is done with regards climate change, as the research predicts we may loose it as early as 2050. It is an attempt from my side to invigorate some response. As you know the degrading drought condition around Sydney and the stubborness of the OZ govt to acknowledge the same and implement some constructive environmental action rather than being adamant in the climate change talks.

Its a bit rich calling anywhere the sporting capital of the world but at least give it a fair comparison.

Athletics:
Melbourne, Olympic Park (18 000)
London, do they even have one? Temporary olympic stadium being built.

Cricket:
Melbourne, MCG (100,000)
London, Lords (29,000)

Rugby:
Melbourne, Olympic park (18,000)
London, Twickenham (80,000)

Football:
Melbourne, Etihad stadium (55,000)
London, Wembley (90,000)

Tennis:
Melbourne, Olympic park and Kooyong tennis club Rod laver arena (15,000)
London, Wimbledon, Centre court (15,000)

Other stadiums in melbourne. Flemington racecourse (150,000), Vodafone arena, (11,000) retractable roof for tennis cycling basketball, Princes park (35,000), Victoria park, etc... State of the art Football, Rugby stadium currently being built, (32,000)

Considering rugby and football are minor sports in melbourne with the main sport Australian football and the fact that melbournes population is only half of londons it can hardly be said that london outclasses Melbourne in terms of sporting Infrustructure.

The states seem highly disconcerted. No doubt which state wud like to waste such huge amounts if these efforts end up white elephants?
Japan and Korea just co-hosted a bid. How would either of those countries be better than the US? If we're being fair.

No, Bahrain couldn't beat Mexico. Japan and Mexico are on the same tier. Japan looks worse because they don't kick the snot out of St. Kitts and Nevis all the time.

Fact is, CONCACAF teams run hot and cold. On their day Costa Rica would put Brazil to the sword, but they've also lost 4-0 to Honduras. Japan is consistently above average.
Err, Mexico was 3rd in the last Copa America. You know, CONMEBOL? That means they were better than anyone except Brazil and Argentina and they beat Brazil.

Which is a lot more than Japan has done recently, no offense to Japan. It's just hard to judge them because you only really see them play vs AFC opponents and then at the WC every four years.

Buddy,
If the list of stadiums of London are given then it would be an epic, O2 Arena, Emirates Stadium, Stamford Bridge, Crystal Palace National Sports Centre - For Your Enlightenment Athletics,........

Moreover don't tell me that Melbourne Park ever hosted WC Rugby games in 2003. May be it is used for local league games and small friendlies.
If this is taken as a yard stick then every city in the world can boast of itself as a Sporting Capital, Guadalajara, Rio, Doha, Delhi, Singapore, Toronto etc with venues dedicated for each sport.

So let us stop this game of "Melbourne sporting capital - Approve/Disapprove" right here and move ahead.
Cheer Up

I never said it is the sporting capitol in fact I said the opposite, that there is no such thing as the sporting capital of the world. The only point i was trying to make is that it is a great sporting city up to the standard of London or anywhere else. And by the way rugby is tiny in Melbourne and Olympic park is the only stadium that is used for it reguarly because it houses the Melbourne storm. Docklands and the MCG are occasionaly used for a Rugby international or state of origin but neither can be called a rugby stadium.

Hey, I posted that these bids were better than AUSSIE bid not the US bid.
US can give two bids with two different set of Cities still posting record capacities and attendences.

They're not better as neither will win! :P Even though they are technically better, they still have problems to Iron out. Korea is only bidding for 2022 and lacks the 80,000 needed for the final, Tokyo is hoping for a successful 2016 Olympics bid so it can build it's new 100,000 seater stadium, a stadium that won't go ahead if the Olympic bid is lost.

So technically the can host, but are in similar boats with Australia, only less troublesome (We lack the lower capacity venues, they got no 80,000+ stadiums).
