I think it is very clear why FIFA/UEFA want Europe to host the WC in 2018 and in no way in 2022, and it is because if Europe host the WC in 2022 they wont be able to bid for 2030 which is 100 years from first WC.

I think this is the real reasson.

Anyways it is still long time until then and everything can happen.

I would like it to be like this:

Australia 2018
somewhere Europe 2022
middle East 2026
Uruguay/Argentina 2030

I think it may be a bit unrealistic to expect quality host if at times Europe didn't host a cup every other rotation let alone every third.

Russia can't host 2026 if England wins 2018.

Well,
If FIFA sticks to the two edition restriction rule for bidding that is good.
Any European Nation can bid for the 3rd edition along with other Continents which are eligible to bid for the event.
In fair competition, let the host be decided.

But FIFA if it feels every III edition to be in Europe then let it clearly mention and come clean, rather than pretending this to be a suggestion in disguise at ending stages of bid process.
If there are opinion differences btwn Confederation upon this can be sorted in FIFA General Body meetings, rather than wasting other Countries Time & Resources for a bid which virtually is earmarked for Europe.

That's fair enough actually. In reality, that will lead to Europe hosting ever third world cup in all likelyhood, but it's hard not to feel the bidding process has been botched by FIFA this tme round with them advising non-European bids to focus on 2022.

Europe should get every third WC. as far as the bidding process is concerned they can hold 1 bidding only for european candidates for 1 WC and then 1 bidding for the following two tournaments for all candidates from outside europe. easy as peas.

Russia seems a difficult option.
Even the Russain bid failed for the Euro.
The long distances, Time Gaps, hostile climatic conditions are negatives for any Russian bid.

Europe-only bids is a dumb idea for 2018 and I find it unfair. Everyone should be able to bid and may the country who is fit to host win it period.

In USA distances is much better than OZ & Russia.
But in Russia climatic variations are too extreme btwn cities.
These were the primary reasons, they lost the bid for Euro.

how is US distances better than Russia and Australia? Russia perhaps but im sure all the games wont be spread out over the entire country and surely LA to NY is the same or even longer than say Sydney to Perth(east to west coast)?

Russia plans to use around 14 venues in 13 cities in the western part of Russia. The furthest venue/city is Yekaterinburg.

LOL I waited such dumb stereotypes. What stops you to use facts, not myths?

Average temperatures in June (°C)

Kaliningrad: 15.4
Saint Petersburg: 15.8
Moscow: 17.1
Podolsk: 17.4
Kazan: 18
Nizhny Novgorod: 17.2
Yaroslavl: 16.2
Samara: 19.4
Volgograd: 20.8
Saransk: 17,5
Krasnodar: 20,8
Rostov-on-Don: 21,2
Sochi: 20.0
Yekaterinburg: 16,9

The distances between cities are ~200 kms, because Bid contains 5 clusters, and there will be no need to travel between Kaliningrad and Ekaterinburg.

Simple facts which are crushing all dumb myths. Use brains, it's not so hard.

Actually it's to the benefit of the other bidding nations, something FIFA realized was needed after trying to hold the bids for two world cups at the same time. It was pretty much a foregone conclusion the event was going to a European nation, so this allows the likes of Australia and others to concentrate on 2022, saving them time and money.

If you want to say that Europe shouldn't host in 2018 that's another thing entirely.

True, from what I can tell all the Russian cities are less then 1,500 miles and most under 1,00 miles apart from each other if Yekaterinburg is the eastern most point. This compared to the US and Australia which have cities approximately more then 2,500 miles apart.
