I'm personally of the opinion that this particular change won't make a huge difference as I've always seen this as a race between Europe and a race between the others. But it's poor that FIFA can't stick to their own rules.
I think it's to make the voting process easier.

Cuz otherwise you'll need like 239848 rounds to get a winner.

Indonesia won't get it qwersdf. They have ZERO government guarantees. These are required by FIFA.

Personally, I prefer it if the WC goes to football countries, so I wouldn't really want the US or Australia to get it at this stage (if things change then that is different). However, they appear the only capable hosts for 2022 (assuming it is a choice between non-European nations) so I’m backing Australia since the US had it as recently as 1994. It would be a joke having it there again in less than 30 years. Oh and Mexico wasn’t meant to have ’86, Colombia was before someone mentions that.

Geelong could be in cup mix
PETER KER March 02, 2010
AUSTRALIA'S bid for the soccer World Cup should ignore Etihad Stadium and instead take matches to a freshly expanded Skilled Stadium in Geelong, according to the Victorian Government.
After months of controversy over the availability of stadiums for Australia's 2018 and 2022 World Cup bids, the Brumby Government has called for Skilled Stadium to be renovated to international standards and expanded to hold 44,000 spectators.
The plan follows months of heated exchange involving AFL boss Andrew Demetriou, Etihad Stadium's Ian Collins and Football Federation Australia.
The proposal, which crucially does not come with a promise of funding from the Brumby Government, would result in Skilled Stadium complementing the MCG in hosting World Cup matches in Victoria, leaving Etihad to host AFL matches.
The State Government's submission is one of many that will be taken on board by FFA, which will finalise its World Cup bid for FIFA later this year.
If FFA adopts the Geelong proposal and Australia is awarded hosting rights for the World Cup, various stakeholders would then begin talks over how to pay for the Skilled Stadium upgrades. The World Cup is held during June and July, meaning the Australian bid must juggle clashes with AFL and rugby codes for use of stadiums such as Etihad.
Etihad boss Collins could not be contacted yesterday, but last month said his stadium would honour its agreement with the AFL rather than pursue the World Cup. ''Our major tenant is the AFL and they have pre-emptive rights on scheduling,'' Collins said. He said the contract with the AFL would mean Etihad Stadium would be off-limits if Australia hosted the World Cup.
Demetriou has also said if Etihad Stadium was used for World Cup matches alongside the MCG, the football season would have to be cancelled, costing the AFL hundreds of millions of dollars in lost revenue. A World Cup in Australia would require the MCG to be closed for other sports for up to 16 weeks.
Soccer's governing body FIFA requires all World Cup stadiums to hold at least 44,000 spectators, meaning significant funds would be required to upgrade Skilled Stadium from its current capacity of 30,000. Premier John Brumby said there were strong arguments for Geelong's inclusion.
''Geelong boasts transport, accommodation and links to world-class tourist destinations like the Great Ocean Road, making it an ideal location for a World Cup event,'' he said.
But he also emphasised that the plan would be ''a great outcome for AFL clubs and AFL fans in Melbourne'', as it would allow the football season to continue at Etihad throughout the World Cup.
The plan could also have political boons for the Government, which holds a number of vulnerable seats around Geelong. Among them is the electorate of South Barwon, held by former Geelong and Subiaco footballer Michael Crutchfield.
AFL spokesman Patrick Keane said the league had not yet seen full details of the proposal, but was ''extremely supportive'' of Australia's World Cup bid, particularly if it could leave a legacy for the AFL in the form of improved stadiums.
Geelong Football Club chief executive Brian Cook said the proposal was exciting for the city, even if it meant the club could be forced off its home ground for a season during construction.
Skilled Stadium will hold 30,000 spectators this year and the club is already trying to interest stakeholders in a ''stage three'' expansion to 35,000 by 2018. Cook said he hoped to keep the existing stage-three discussions separate from any subsequent plans to take the stadium to 44,000 seats.
Brumby was at Melbourne's new rectangular stadium yesterday, inspecting the newly laid turf. The first match at the venue is planned to be a rugby league Test between Australia and New Zealand on May 7.
The $267.5 million stadium will host soccer, league and rugby union, but is not big enough to host World Cup games and would be used as a training venue if Australia won the cup bid.
Geelong is a city of 200,000 people an hour away from Melbourne. Skilled Stadium is currently is an oval that holds 30,000, and regularly sells out Geelong Cats AFL matches.

The far "unusual" stand in the picture is already there, and about 1/5 of the main stand.

But it does solve the problem that only one city can have two stadiums.

I suppose and it wouldn't be as bad for the AFL.

Could the AFL use Visy Park?

2026 Spain with or without Portugal ( do they really need'em? )
2030 Argentina & Uruguay - Final at Montevideo
2034 Russia since they seem to trying hard
2038 Iran-Iraq / China / Egypt-Libya / Morocco-Algeria / Algeria-Tunisia / Australia

in the news i read the quote 'stats showing travellers are deterred from travelling long distances to fifa WC..decisions will need to be made'. would this seriously hinder the AUS bid?? although not all media reports are always a true indicator. however i cant/dont want to see one's geographical location hindering their bid,

2018 England
2022 USA - Final Los Angeles
2026 China / Japan / Korea / Australia
2030 Spain / Italy
2034 Argentina
2038 Egypt / Morocco

Six bids have chosen their bid cities: England, Belgium/Netherlands, the United States, Russia, Japan and Korea. They are preparing their bid book now.
Spain/Portugal, Qatar and Australia have not chosen their bid cities. They should go hurry because it leaves two months before may 14th.
Indonesia's bid seems to be in jeopardy without government support. It's the weakest bid.
