thats nice, but I'm pretty sure you need to at least be interested enough to bid to have a chance of getting it

otherwise most (including myself) would have been backing China for 2022 (before they like Mexico decided to bail)

Hmm, I think I was a little bid hard to say their stupid… I just prefer that real football countries organize the WC. I have nothing against the USA, Australia, … On the contrary they are very nice countries. But they don’t give a damn about football (or do I need to say soccer). I was in New York a time ago, and I asked at 3 information desks how I should go to the Red Bull Arena. Only one had ever heard of it and didn’t know how to get there. So it’s normal I prefer Mexico to organize a World Cup.

The only realistic option for WC 2022 is Australia. It would be good for them, it should give a boost to the Australian football just as it would give a boost to the Belgian football.

Football is actually big in this country, specifically at grass-roots level as it is the most (or one of the 'most') played sport (specifically at junior level). The view that football is small in Australia probably comes from our lack of a high quality league.

First time I hear that a lot of people playing football in Australia. During the past years I talked to Australians, and none of them were ever talking about football, mostly rugby and American football.

I know your competition and national team is weak but isnít it improving? I thought that a lot of good Australian players return to Australia to support the local football clubs? Is it true?

I'm pretty sure you Australian Rules Football. I was talking about junior level, your more likely to find a kid that plays soccer and not AFL.

what Will737 is spot on

football is very popular at a junior level, with it and Aussie Rules getting strong growth at that level (although basketball does very well too)

main issue is when the kids hit their teens, then they tend to gravitate to AFL or rugby league - with even cricket suffering from this.

this is while creating pathways for kids is such a priority for the FFA, it is a long process, but they are making ground.

on the growth of the game at the national level, its fair to say AFL and NRL rule the roost, and by a considerable range.

in the past 8 years though, the FFA (or NSL before it) has gone from no tv coverage, to a low level deal with pay TV (which they said was a bonanza at the time), to the point now where most say the pay TV arrangement is under valued and the next deal is likely to jump to digital FTA.

football still has a long way to go in Australia, but IMO it has already past basketball by a street (for popularity), and is closing in on rugby union

Way past union. Just rugby league ahead and AFL won't be surpassed, it's just too popular.

Football has by far the biggest junior numbers in Australian sport,infact it has the highest amount of registered players at all ages.Its media coverage and crowd attendance where the sport suffers most in comparison,but the sport is building and we've seen the two main sports of AFL and Rugby League become increasingly hostile to this new competition-especially the AFL.
A 2022 World Cup in Australia would give the sport an incredible boost locally and to the whole region

Russia would love to get the Mundial, how in Russia people start to call it.

But there a few things which do not play in Russia's favor.

1. Very unstable political situation. Power is taken by a few KGB cronies and things are playing out as in the Pinochet's Chile. The country is corrupt beyond anything imaginable.

2. Russia has no known highway system at all. Even between their two big cities St Pete's and Moscow. The country is isolated from within and nothing is scheduled to be build. The logistical transportation of the fans between cities will be a horrendous nightmare.

3. No stadiums are built yet. Though, couple of them are rising from the ground.

4. Not very friendly fan's infrastructure. Not a good number of 3-5 stars hotels in the cities where the games will take place. No airports which can handle 70k passengers a day. No restaurants, bars near the stadiums. The restroom facilities are very third world and really disgusting.

5. The local Russian population is extremely unilingual. Local police which is also corrupt beyond believe will not assist you in English language. The same goes for everything. Areas are just not very tourist friendly at all.

Those are just a few problems. But there are many.

Why I welcome Mundial on the Russian soil. It will somehow facilitate Russia to open up to the world and start to build much needed infrastructure, any civilized country must have.
