2018 England
2022 USA
2026 China
2030 Argentina/Uruguay

2018 is definitely going to Europe and is between England and Russia with England strong favorites.
China 2026 is huge and if they decide to bid for it then USA will be given 2022 by FIFA over Australia to allow China to host 2026. If China doesn't want 2026 then Australia has a chance of getting 2022 otherwise FIFA will love the lucrative prospect of hosting in USA followed by China guaranteeing huge profits.

Here's my thinking:

2018 Belgium/Netherlands (to the shock of many!)
2022 Australia
2026 Russia or Turkey
2030 Argentina/Uruguay (this would be more about the celebration of football than about money!)

As lucrative as European world cups are, FIFA wants to grow the game and consolidate new markets with USA and Asia as the final obstacles to world domination. Returning to Europe every 8 years is not good for the growth strategy. I see the present hosting rules persisting for a long time. Europe every 12 years.

USA hosting in 2022 will do wonders for the development of the game there. China in 2026 gives them time to improve the national team with under 10's today in training to lift the trophy for China. India may become a target in the 2030's but cricket is the oxygen of the average Indian.

Would love to see Australia get 2022 but that would piss off USA who might be placated with 2026 but China wouldn't be able to bid until 2034. Can't see FIFA doing all this for Australia's tiny market.

yeah it really comes down to china's decision for 2026 ,even though i havent heard much news from them as being interested as yet, although for the 2000 olympics it came down to beijing and sydney and as you (should) know sydney won so the little guy can overcome huge odds.

I wouldn't put Argentina and Uruguay together. I think more realistic option is Argentina and Chile as joined candidature.

I think the notion is purely sentimental, since Uruguay held the first 2 World Cups but otherwise could never host the modern event on their own. Thus, allow them a venue (or two) and some publicity as kind of an honorarium for their role in the history of the event.

China would need to get their butt into gear if that is to be the case, the 2018/2022 bid winners are announced at the end of this year. China hasn't shown any interest in bidding for 2026 thus far.

We've been having the Uruguay x Argentina discussion in another forum, they can't do it. Specially if FIFA does not change the rules and 2030 may go to Europe. Argentina would have to evolve A LOT in one decade in order to be able to defeat the European bids and be elected hosts. And Uruguay is a country of 3 million, they would probably have only one host city (Montevideu), and they would have to turn Centenário into a world-class 80,000 seater. They'd have more than a full plate with just that much.

In my opinion, joint bids should always be balanced. Poland and Ukraine? Great. Colombia and Peru? Good. Argentina and Uruguay? No way. I don't have an argument for this though, it's just that it's weird
Don't agree with you that Uruguay / Argentina 2030 can't be done. It's still 20 years from now! I mean, Brazil isn't ready for its world cup yet by any means at the moment, they still have to do most of the work, and they have a lot less then 20 years.

Like you say, there's no argument for joint bids having to be balanced I don't see a problem with Argentina having 8 or 10 stadiums and Uruguay only having 2 stadiums in a world cup bid.... And I'm sure Uruguay could manage upgrading Centenario stadium!

Not China's style to make their intentions known to everyone. They may well have already made their intentions clear to the decision makers in FIFA with regards to a 2026 bid. This is however pure speculation and hopefully not the case. My hope is that FIFA gives Australia 2022 and 2026 goes to USA. China can bid for 2034.

My hope is that China announces their intention to bid for 2026 before FIFA makes a decision on 2018/2022.
