I think Australia will get the 2026 World Cup.
Then the Cup will go to China.

Remember FIFA wants to see Australia getting the Cup in the 2020s.

If FIFA want Australia to get a WC, as well as China (soon) then why can't they go Australia 2022, USA 2026 China 2030?

Freed from England duties, Beckham can represent his country at a higher pitch
13 August 2010
The Times

David Beckham has not played his last game for England, but he may have played his last game for the England football team. England's manager, Fabio Capello, has decided that Beckham is "a little bit too old" to win another competitive cap. But as the Player says in Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, every exit is an entrance somewhere else. Beckham's exit from the football field frees him to focus more fully on his already blossoming new role — that of not just an elder statesman of his sport, but an elder statesman of sport. More potently still, he has harnessed his fame (is any Briton more recognised abroad?) to his passion, his charm and his "choose me" patriotism to become a charismatic ambassador for Britain.

Having been influential in securing the 2012 Olympics for London, Beckham is now pivotal in England's faltering bid to host football's 2018 World Cup: he was the man FIFA grandees queued to be snapped with when would-be 2018 hosts presented their bids in Johannesburg in June. When football stars are commonly caricatured as overpaid, oversexed and over-fond of Cristal, when some players are suspected of regarding turning out for their country as a burden as much as an honour, Beckham has evolved into the closest thing that modern-day Britain has to Bobby Moore. As with Pele for Brazil, Beckham has become role model and roving envoy for both football and his country.

You might have got long odds against such a twist of fate a decade ago, when Beckham was known at least as much for his haircuts, his wife, his sarongs, for that humiliating red card in the 1998 World Cup, and for his appearances in gossip columns as much as he was for his set-piece kicks. You see? Football really is a game of two halves.

And i think that 2026 will be between South Africa, Egypt, China, Brazil, Argentina, and Australia.

SA? probably after 50 years later
BR? I do't think they could get WC twice in just 12 years

2026 is CHN VS AUS if AUS lost to USA in 2022

But very probably lost to CHN.......

I wouldn't rule out AUS for 2026. Sure, it wouldn't be any easier from their standpoint the bid competition. However, knowing China's footballing track record, I happen to think a Chinese bid would be a bit less than meets the eye. That's why I find it strange that some people are hoping that China would "come in" and "knock out" the Aussie bid.

By now, I would have thought the Asian members would come to a consensus agreement as to who would be their "best" choice and unite behind it. That they have not can only because of either national pride or internal politics in play.

Look at the confederation rotation policy and then re comment. china haven't even released their intention to bid yet. But lets wait and see, December 2nd is just around the corner.

Interesting post.
What we do know is-the next 3 world cups will be played in Europe,Asia and specifically the USA.What order nobody knows.
The overwhelming favourite for 2018 is undoubtedly European ,be it England,Russia or Spatugal.This can all come crumbling down if a preliminary ballot isn't held by UEFA as the USA will be the no 2 choice from the England, Spain, Belgium and Russian exco members.
With a preliminary UEFA vote at least 6 members will support the same bid whereas the other 3 will hope the USA has the numbers and they can try again in 2022.
Re 2022,supposing UEFA do succeed,then the first round will be extremely crucial.A number of factors make the 4 votes from the AFC a mystery.Three of the 4 AFC bids have Exco members leaving self interest as a major hurdle.There has also been infighting between the Qatari and the South Korean over control of the AFC.
It seems a common thought that if Australia can avoid being eliminated in the first round then we may go all the way to a fourth round final stoush with the USA
The USA will have possibly 9 votes in round 1 but that may be as many votes as they will get till round 4.They will definitely be one of the final 2 for 2022.
Also,Australia's main fear would have to be that if we miss 2022 then we may never get a realistic shot for many years

Folks need to understand that regardless of everything the USA will host by 2026-other countries don't have that luxury

As far as I can see Australia will not bid in 2026 if China is bidding because it would be futile.This the only reason Australia put in a bid this time

We have all our eggs in 1 basket so if Exco like us they better support us now

Not only that,UEFA will not wait any longer than 12 years to host again-meaning they would wreck CONMEBOLs dream of a centennial WC

I don't think JPN will get WC 2022. they did it in 2002 although they, together with KOR ,claim that that was joint bid.

Especially considering Asia and pacific regions has other strong bidders like QAT and AUS, the chance for JPN and KOR is nominal.

Yes,so i set the context that if US win 2022........

According to Weidi and CFA official, if asia does not win 2022, CHN definitely will strive for 2026.

this is just the federation though, which is still dealing with internal issues of mistrust of the local comp and poor performances of the national team. until the govt comment, its all noise

that being said, if they govt say "yay", forget about AU for 2026. Australia beat a very different China for the Sydney SOG that it will be facing for a 2026 WC

this china is much richer, and has much greater political clout

also IMO China will want to be THE AFC bid. Australia and all others I reckon will come under immense pressure to give China a clean run - especially as the 4 competing Asian bids may be blamed for any loss to the USA
