I'm surprised at how many people are placing Russia amongst their projections for future hosts, yet they're ignoring another Netherlands/Belgium bid which on its face is more feasible than the Russian offering. True, in time Russia may indeed have more viable stadiums but as of today the Netherlands/Belgium bid is more realistic, more financially viable for both the governments and the fans, and the leagues stand to make better use of the finished products. To say nothing of the rabid local support.

Seriously, unless England can confirm some of the proposed improvements and new developments (Stanley Park, Elland Road, etc) then it sure seems like the quality of their bid isn't so far out of reach for the other European bids. To wit, the folks in Amsterdam, Rotterdam et al are quite deserving if they can pull off the visions for their facilities.

I don't think it's so much location as it is costs vs perceived value. According to my friends in Sam's Army (US MNT supporters club) the whole of South Africa simply doesn't have the tourism appeal for how much it's going to cost them to spend 2+ weeks traveling. Cape Town is an attractive destination, but beyond that the global appeal factor drops quickly. As of last month it costs about as much to travel to Australia as it does South Africa from here in Atlanta (USA), and I feel certain that given that fact everyone I know would readily pick a trip to Australia over SA.

Yes, much of this is perception and the fine folks in South Africa is using this event (and the investment building up to same) as a chance to change this perception, but especially in this economy that's a big ask of the tourist.

Besides, didn't you see District 9? Who'd want to be near all those rioting aliens?!!!

Hong Kong aspires to host the 2026 World Cup, according to Hong Kong Football Association Chairman Brian Leung Hung-tak.

Leung returned from talks with Beijing officials yesterday and told Apple Daily that a Hong Kong team will be participating in the China Football Association Super League as soon as next year. Beijing is also gearing up to bid for the 2026 World Cup to be hosted by China.

"We hope there's something in it for Hong Kong," said Leung.

If Beijing is successful in its bid for the 2026 World Cup, Leung said it is highly likely that Hong Kong will become one of the hosting cities where some of the final matches can take place. The Hong Kong Football Association is currently planning a youth championship between Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, and mainland China


http://www.cnngo.com/hong-kong/play/...#ixzz0hzDJpIhq

----------------------------------

The suggestion in this article that China is looking to bid for the 2026 tournament could really affect the 2022 race. If their intention to bid becomes clear before December, there might be a few worried Australians and a few happy Americans.

China announcing a 2026 bid would really put the cat amongst the pigeons for 2022. And if China is serious about getting a world cup, they'd be stupid to keep quiet about their intentions and let Australia nab 2022.

Watch this space I suppose.

Exactly. If China wants to have a chance in 2026, they have to get the word out right now, so that Australia doesn't get 2022.

The Americans don't actually have much to worry about. If they don't get 2022, they'll get 2026. The Australians, however, should go all-in in 2022 since they'd have to fight China for the 2026 tournament.

China has lots of stadiums which are capable to host a WC. Furthermore, there is a very big market to reach for FIFA.

For the moment, Algeria-Morocco border is closed.
It will never have a both candidature.

In 2010, we will have 6 stadiums up 45 000 seats. Tangier (extainable to 69 000), Agadir and Marrakesh will open this year.
Fes (45 000), Rabat (55 000) and Casablanca (65 000) are ready. But all our stadiums have track like the majority of Japanese stadium in 2002 (Oita, Yokohama ...).

But they are all agreed by FIFA and IAAF.

Australia in 2038 is the perfect one.
Provided the security is good for all the nations and Melbourne people get civilised by then.
Seeing Australia's dismal track record on racism, things will be against Australia leave alone for sporitng reasons.

That's alright, we know all about India's exemplary human rights record and treatment of various minorities. Top-notch caste system you have there

Biggest beat up over nothing. Who the hell goes on a walk through a park at night anyway??? Same goes for the western subburbs' train stations. They're not safe, for Australians and Indians alike.
