If we don't get the world cup Holland/Belgium would be a good fun. I love the way they've gone about everything with such good humour. Their presentation video was hilarious as well.

It seems the London World Cup. There is a limit on how many stadiums can be chosen by city? When Brazil became a candidate FIFA said it would only accept one stadium in each city. So the Olympic Stadium in Rio was not submitted because the Maracana.

They're just giving FIFA options at this stage. As a Brazilian you'll also know FIFA decides the final list of stadiums. They'll choose from the list England gives them if we win the world cup bid.

Exactly, which is why they won't be getting Etihad from Melbourne, especially since it's not being proposed!

London could just ditch the club grounds and still have a good number of seats available.

By the way, is there again a UK-OZ partnership?
Similar to the one clinched Sydney(Manchester combine) against Beijing for the 2000 Olympics.
Don't know but there very well could be. Both nations have obvious close relations.

2018/2022 FIFA World Cup "Live" Poll

Since many things changed, some countries left competition and others decided just for 2022, who should win 2018 WC?

New 2022 WC pool

Since many things changed since they all bid who do you think will host 2022 WC.

Like blatter said, Europe probably will get 2018, so 2022 will resume to Asia x USA.

I voted for Australia.

Why?

USA hosted last time in 94. Too early.

Australians like soccer a lot.

They never hosted.

Would be first time in Oceania.

Would have great stadiums.

Although a US WC would be dramatically different to 1994, Australia is a new frontier and has much more to offer (even if legacy is a weak point in term of post WC stadium use) than the Yanks do.

Spain/Portugal is a disaster, especially for Portugal, which is not getting much out of the bid and more importantly, can be seen as dragging Spain down.

It's not as though the WC will leave a legacy in the USA either because all of their stadiums are American football stadiums.
