I highly doubt that Australia has to wait until 2046 to host. I agree with England in 2018 and USA in 2022. I can definitely see China 2026, but I think FIFA wants into Australia and even though they changed federations, will justify hosting it in Australia in 2038 at the latest by saying that geographically, they're Oceania.

^ It doesn't matter if they see it as AFC or Oceania, if its AFC the earliest would be 2038 anyways.

There's no way Uruguay hosts by itself and I also doubt an Argentina/Uruguay bid would be better than European bids.

Saw this today

Quote:
Blatter, in Madrid to meet with the Spanish prime minister, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, confirmed for the first time that talks were underway to streamline the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 tournaments.

"From what I've discussed with the president of Uefa, Michel Platini, in the last few days in Moscow is that only a European candidate will be evaluated for the 2018 World Cup," Blatter said. "It's still not decided, but it's an idea to help facilitate the work of Fifa and its executive committee."

Restricting the competition for 2018 to Europe would leave England's bid team facing three strong rivals in Spain-Portugal, Russia and Holland-Belgium but would simplify a Byzantine lobbying process.

It would leave Australia, Japan, the US, South Korea, Indonesia and Qatar competing to host the 2022 tournament. The hosts of both tournaments are to be decided at the same Fifa executive committee meeting in Zurich in December.

Many on the various bid teams have privately voiced fears that the open field and sheer volume of bidders will complicate the decision making process and leave it open to manipulation.

If the race for the 2018 World Cup is restricted to just four European bidders, it would increase the likelihood of European votes largely cancelling one another out in the opening round and highlight the importance of securing votes from Africa, the Americas and Asia.

If anything, the horse-trading could intensify, with federations aiming to secure the 2022 tournament looking to trade votes with European contenders. Australia, Japan and the United States are at present bidding for either 2018 or 2022, while South Korea, Indonesia and Qatar are in the running to host the 2022 tournament only.

Blatter was last week in Russia, visiting the prime minister, Dmitry Medvedev, in Moscow and attending the CIS and Baltic Cup with Platini.

Yesterday he was received by another of England's rivals in Madrid. There has been a degree of confusion over the status of the two European joint bids ever since the process began.

Blatter was originally thought to be ill-disposed towards the idea following a series of problems in the run up to the World Cup in Japan and South Korea in 2002. But more recently he is believed to have reassured both Spain-Portugal and Belgium-Holland that their chances will not be harmed and he attempted to clarify his position to Spanish reporters.

"History has shown that at the European Championships of 2000 [Belgium-Netherlands] and 2008 [Austria-Switzerland] that joint organisation can be a great success," he said.

Attention will now turn to Angola, with most bidding nations sending delegations to the country for the final stages of the Africa Cup of Nations and to lobby at the Confederation of African Football congress on Friday.

But only Qatar will be able to distribute publicity material or have a public presence at the congress, after agreeing an exclusive deal with organisers to sponsor it. Final bids are due in at the end of May, with Fifa inspection teams expected to visit the various competing nations following this summer's World Cup in South Africa.

This is making official what we all suspected anyway with regard to these two cups. I don't think it changes much really. I suspect, in reality, Australia and the USA were really looking to 2022 as their best hope given that the world cup has been away from Europe for two tournaments prior to 2018. Typical of FIFA to move the goalposts halfway through if this is made official, but not a change that'll upset many.

2018 is for England,
Europe, aka "FIFA" won't alow 3 WCs in a row outside the continent.

2006 Germany
2010 S.Africa
2014 Brazil
2018 England, unless Spain or Russia put on a show.

Yep that is true. I do, however, have the suspicion that UEFA have lobbied for this for fear of Europe not getting either tournament. Basically, due to the fact that there are 4 bids and 6 different countries from Europe the worry might have been that the votes would have been split within UEFA (which is something like 40% of all votes). With Australia and the USA knowing that it would be pointless lobbying for UEFA votes, they'd just focus on the others, globbling them up whilst the 4 Euro bids remain stuck on their own continent.

Europe would probably still have got it anyway, but UEFA maybe felt worried of this scenario unfolding and wanted a guarantee (using its financial and political muscle)

Because of unfair criticism by the English and German(South Africa lost to the Germans to host the 2006 WC by one vote) press, from an African point of view I hope that ENGLAND NEVER HOST THE WORLD CUP. Leading to Africa's biggest sporting showpiece ever, South Africa and Africa has received so much bad publicity from particularly the English media that it got me that they wanted to even cancel the world cup because its in Africa's shores. I'm so disappointing about this bad press that it reported about 20% truth and the rest just fiction trying to paint a dark picture(maybe it's because we black) leading to this world cup that it lead me thinking that the English doesn't want Africa to be part of their modern day world. FIFA has recognized this and I hope that it will come against them, if they do host the world cup let it be known that AFRICA IS NOT IN SUPPORT OF THEM because Africa is not part of there world.

This is a quote from last night press conference:

Quote:
LOC chief executive Danny Jordaan added: "First they said 'the stadiums will never be ready' - that was your perception. The reality is that all the stadiums are done.

"Then they said 'you're going to run out of money before everything is done' - it has not happened. That was the perception and it was wrong. Then they said 'no-one is going to buy the tickets' - now we saying we sold over two million and there are just 900,000 left. So we are happy where we are.''

Asked to pinpoint which countries were largely responsible for the negative press, Valcke added: "I would say mainly in Europe from Germany and England. These are the two countries.
Thank you. Africa has been victimized yet again.

Oh, please. Shove your self-victimizing image up somewhere.
Is there anything more annoying than Africa instead of dealing with it's alarming and cronic problems try to blame someone ells?

Africa is the third-world!
South Africa is a country that has alot of problems. While you could wander around in german cities without a problem, you will not be able to do this in most south african cities without risking to get mugged and/or robbed.

PLEASE deal with your problems instead of blaming others!

A rather silly point of view.

The English gutter press criticises everything and anyone if it'll sell a few papers. Don't judge us or our bid by it.

It's a shame that your emotional maturity is such that you can't see the difference between silly articles in the English press and the English themselves - who will, incidently, be one of the largest travelling contingents to South Africa this year. And it's rather sad that you're playing the race card and have such an inferiority complex that to try to give your posts credence you pretend to speak on behalf of the whole of Africa!! Learn to argue properly or go away please.

Incidently, your post has been reported, and I'm almost certain the South African guy who moderates this forum will agree with me that your methods of debating are out of line. So much for speaking on behalf of Africa, I doubt you even speak for the Africans who post on this forum.

Try harder next time. You're right to criticise our press and some of its stories but the rest of your post is a joke full of horrible generalisations.

One of 2018 or 22 is going to Europe. The continent won't be waiting 20 years between world cups.

Jesus, the lists get weirder!

No China? Uruguay by itself? The USA 3 times in 60 years and Australia twice in 28 years? No more African countries? Mexico over Canada? Brazil again but not Argentina?
