Perth will be rectangle configuration as based on the Stadium WA plans.I can assure you of that.
Adelaide...well...we havent yet seen the plans for the FIFA compliant configuration(which the SA government have guarranteed),so I cannot see how you can judge Adelaide yet.
Gold Coast...well...this looks like it will be an oval or have an athletics track.
In other words...the Gold Coast may be the only stadium that many might have an issue with!
Who said there was 3 stadium in Sydney that was going to be used?..The bid book proposes Stadia that are FIFA compliant and 3 Stadia in Sydney will be compliant.It doesnt mean that they will use all 3.Havent London proposed 3 stadia in their bid?

To me,its sounding like a solid bid!
Rekon solid bid! GO AUSTRALIA! the ovals make sure that the bid is shared over the whole of Australia so it is indeed a full country bid not just a few east coast cities. with the reconfigured seating will the whole oval thing be such a problem really?

Netherlands / Belgium bid for 2018

A quick view for the stadiums so far..

Netherlands
Rotterdam (80.000 / 90.000)




Eindhoven (44.000)


Enschede (44.000)


Heerenveen (44.000)


Belgium

Brussel (70.000 ?)


Antwerpen (45.000)


Gent (45.000)


Genk (45.000)


Brugge (45.000)


Charleroi (45.000)


Luik (50.000)


The only missing stadium is the Amsterdam ArenA. The Amsterdam ArenA maybe can be build to 65.000. Otherwise there is coming a brand new stadium up to 75.000

The Holland & Belgium bidbook was given to the FIFA president. It was brought there with the bike and Ruud Gullit and other soccer players where also there.
Another thing that just got announced is that the Netherlands will give away 2 million free bikes if we get the FIFA World Cup. This to make it the greenest WC ever.

THE HOLLANDBELGIUM BID PRESENTS SEVEN GREAT GOALS
Friday 14 May, 2010

Great Goals magazineThe HollandBelgium Bid, the joint candidacy of Belgium and Holland for the FIFA World Cup, today presented seven Great Goals as part of its Bid Book. The Great Goals herald the contribution the HollandBelgium Bid will make to football, as well as to the people, society and the environment.

The Bid Book and a magazine which features the Great Goals and the ambassadors of the Bid were handed over to FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter by Ruud Gullit, Paul Van Himst and Johan Cruyff in Zurich today. The HollandBelgium Bid delegation, including co-chairmen Michael van Praag and Francois De Keersmaecker as well as CEO Harry Been, arrived at FIFA House by bicycle. The bicycle ride drew attention to the green ambitions of the Bid.

Bid President Ruud Gullit said: “EURO2000 is a showcase for a profitable tournament and a successful standard for joint organisation. Today we offer FIFA all the ingredients for a great football fiesta with a lasting legacy. A guarantee for success.”

1. Success guaranteed
Thanks to our experience with and expertise in organising major football tournaments and sport events, we can guarantee a successful tournament to the world. A tournament with world-class football, a great atmosphere and a profitable outcome.

The Low Countries form a duality. We demonstrate that a joint candidacy is more than feasible – EURO2000 is the example. With this we are an example for all other countries that would like to host a FIFA World Cup together.

A compact tournament in the heart of Europe. The next match is never far away.

2. Added impetus for the springboard of football talent
The Low Countries have developed themselves into springboards for top talent and top coaches for the major European competitions and national teams around the world. The FIFA World Cup is a necessary stimulus for our national competitions, which enable us to remain strong springboards. We will offer the world an insight into how we do this.

3. All of our 14 FIFA World Cup stadiums are green and sustainable
We offer the world a toolkit for sustainable stadiums.

Thanks to newly developed guidance for sustainable stadiums, the HollandBelgium Bid is a pioneer in creating stadiums that are green beyond imagination. To ensure this, countless new concepts and techniques are being applied. Named the Sustainable Stadium Toolkit, we offer this to the football world.

4. Open Football Clubs as centres of our community
Commitment by the Low Countries to install 2.018 or 2022 Open Football Clubs within eight years.
The Open Football Clubs model will be made available to other countries.

The Low Countries enjoy a special club culture. We will use this to build a unique network of Open Football Clubs, which will operate as multifunctional centres in communities, villages and cities.

The basis of these new-style clubs is health, respect and education, thereby tackling relevant issues in society.

All existing social community initiatives, under the umbrella of the Open Football Club name, will receive an enormous boost by hosting the FIFA World Cup. This enables us to realise our ambition to install 2018 or 2022 Open Football Clubs.

5. We educate 2018 or 2022 WorldCoaches worldwide
Through a specially developed programme called WorldCoaches, the HollandBelgium Bid supports the education and development of trainers and other key figures within clubs in developing countries. Up to 2018 or we can train 2018 or 2022 coaches through WorldCoaches – a clear commitment by the HollandBelgium Bid.

WorldCoaches does not only focus on football skills, coaching and organisation, but also on the development of so-called life skills.

During a FIFA World Cup in the Low Countries we offer a special Train the Trainer programme, based on the WorldCoaches approach.

6. The most sustainable FIFA World Cup ever
Our compactness dramatically reduces the need for transport during the tournament. Together with a set of new eco-measurements, The HollandBelgium Bid guarantees a FIFA World Cup with an environmental impact that is 50% lower.

We have an Environment Protection Plan in place which gives centre stage to optimised public transport and 2 million free bicycles.

We have created a unique World Cup Ecological Footprint – a new method to measure the ecological impact of a major football event. Thanks to this instrument we know that we will ‘save’ 50% on the environment. We will offer this concept to FIFA.

7. World-class football in a great atmosphere.
Football fans can expect a dream holiday when visiting a FIFA World Cup in the Low Countries. Fans can enjoy world-class football in a fantastic atmosphere which has so much to offer. Cities, beaches, culinary delights, shopping.

The Low Countries are laidback and have supporters who create a wonderful atmosphere. The entire world will feel at home.

Our compactness is an advantage. Stadiums are always close. Fans, players, officials and media feel the advantage of short travel times, which means more time to enjoy.

A FIFA World Cup in the Low Countries will be a football fiesta that is unmatched.

Interesting info. The stadium at Blacktown is a waste but the rest can serve a clear purpose after the WC.

What I find the weirdest is that there are some saying that the MCG will be rectangular for the WC, but the stadium list says nothing about any upgrade.

The real benificiaries will be NSW with 3 upgraded and 1 new stadium if all 12 venues are used. The big losers are Melbourne and Brisbane, with no stadium upgrades.

im surpirised brisbane didnt get an upgrade because the broncos are a team very capable of supporting a 60,000 seat stadium as population heads to queensland over the next 10 or so years

The most "democratic" WC would naturally be the US since it will allow alot more to attend the games.
Contrary to Netherlands/Belgium.

I really don't think so. The UK, Germany and France are around the corner, so a lot of people can attend the games in The Netherlands/Belgium.
