I thought he was talking about that TV show that is still inexplicably on the air after a few decades.

Anyway, I have my doubts about China and 2026. They already had their "coming out party" in the Olympics. And I'm not alone in thinking this. Their footballing is even more behind than we were back in '94. That's how far they need to catch up.

I still stick by my opinion that 2022 is Australia's to lose.

What's the deal with people thinking Mexico might have a bid for a future WC?

As of right now, they can offer only infrastructure and economy, but they cannot guarantee security. Government and law enforcement in that country is so far from corrupt is not even funny.

As for USA, they can offer everything, but they can't offer the spirit of the game, the MLS and other soccer tournaments here are so underappreciated that I wouldnt be surprised if they decide to give less funds to the MLS; however, FIFA can care less about spirit since money is worth more than spirit alone.

Objectibly, and from what I've seen in the news about possible INTERESTED candidates, I do believe and support England - 2018 and Australia - 2022.

As for later candidates, 2026 could make a comeback to South America. Colombia recently annouced a possible bid for it and FIFA's Vice-President gave it his support if infrastructure and security keeps improving as it has been during the past decade.
Argentina would be a great candidate for its history, infrastructure and security (need major improvements in economy).

If not any of these two countries, then I would support a USA bid.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter speaks during a press conference in Doha Saturday, April 24, 2010. Blatter is in Doha for a two-day visit. FIFA president Sepp Blatter said the Arab world deserves to stage a World Cup, boosting Qatar's bid to host the tournament in 2022. Blatter, in Doha to meet with Qatar's football officials, praised the bid's infrastructure on Saturday and said the government's successful hosting of the 2006 Asian Games showed it was capable of organizing big international events.

I agree with the England/Australia prediction for 2018/2022. About 2026, I think it is already too far away in time to tell (we haven't even had the 2010 WC yet!). What I can say is that sadly I don't see South America being able to host even in 2026. Colombia has the same problems in security as Mexico, and its economy and infraestructure are clearly inferior (at least today). Argentina may have history and widespread security and infraestructure, but the latter is severely outdated and their economy is never a sure thing. Perhaps Chile holds some hope, since they have somewhat good infraestructure and their economy is going well. The rest of the countries can't host on their own: even though Venezuela spent a lot of money on the last Copa America and has some good infrastructure, the country's very unstable in every other way; the others are too small or poor. Oh, and joint bids are not going to happen, not only because lingering grudges but mostly because customs and borders are a huge mess in these countries (especially in the Andes region).

Oh, and I'd never count out Mexico going for a bid right now, because soccer over there is very commercialized and wants to get everywhere sponsors are. Stadia infrestructure is already the most up-to-date in Latin America, and their FA and clubs are almost corporations. This can be shown by the fact that Mexican clubs already play in South America's Libertadores and Sudamericana cups for the sake of money, and if the country hasn't officially joined the CSF it's because it wouldn't have a place guaranteed in the World Cup then. Looking at that, it is clear that a(nother) World Cup is very much the ultimate goal of the Mexican businessmen that run soccer over there, and that's why I think that Mexico will bid (in fact, I'm surprised it hasn't done so already) even if chances are it won't be successful.

Yep, let the Qataris just aim for another Olympics, one they will not win if they insist on October and the current Qatari Olympics record is a negative as well.

Thank you love-qatar for reposting my posts from the Qatar forums to here, All stadiums WILL BE AIR-CONDITIONED TO 27 degrees Celsius, and the stadium WILL BE DOWNGRADED after the tournament finishes from 40k to 20k to suit local needs, but not all of them.


WEATHER WILL NOT BE AN ISSUE ANYMORE


And may we please have the Qatar 2022 bid thread unlocked ? its about time and the bid file will be submitted in a matter of days.

Qatar is too small for bidding for the World Cup. A Gulf Persian countries bid would be interesting by the way.

And furthermore those stadia must be the smallest in the bid. You need some 70000 or 80000 stadia. Are there in Qatar?
Why is not China bidding? I think Blatter would giv'em the WC surely if they want...

And if they dont choose my nation I vote

2018: Russia
2022: US
2026: China
2030: England
