Surely Italy could host it on their own? The same with Spain. A joint bid of Italy/Greece OR Spain/Portugal seems a bit unnecessary.

Everybody is talking about the WC of 2018. Is the host country for the WC of 2014 already announced?

Perhaps, but definitely complimentary. It's a good idea. A big country co-hosting with a smaller one, especially one that ties into it's culture, history and mentality. The larger has to share and the smaller gets an opporunity = spreading out the benefits of a major event.

I reckon a joint Britain/Ireland bid would be cool.

No chance: Italy would host alone.
Greece-Turkey maybe: it would be a bit like Japan-Korea.

Well, more or less....it is going to a South American country, and it is virtually guaranteed to go to Brazil, although this is not a deffinite. There are slight possibilities of an Argentina-Chile, and an Australian bid, but it's not very likely. Here is the quote about it from Wikipedia:

The 2014 FIFA World Cup will provisionally take place in Brazil. On March 7, 2003 FIFA announced that the cup would be held in South America for the first time since Argentina hosted it in 1978, in line with its policy of rotating the right to host the World Cup amongst different confederations. On March 17 the CONMEBOL associations voted unanimously to adopt Brazil as their sole candidate. The final decision as to hosting will be made sometime in 2008. However, on April 13, 2006 Sepp Blatter said that does not necessarily mean that the tournament would be in Brazil. "For the time being, I don't think Brazil has a stadium for the Cup." But it should be noted, that he had only visited stadiums in Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Porto Alegre. On the topic of co-hosting, Blatter advised that FIFA would prefer a single candidate which fulfilled the requirements. It was suggested that Argentina and Chile could launch a joint bid but later reports suggest it unlikely—if Brazil is deemed not to be a runner (the host country must fulfil the requirements in the mandatory regulations), the competition may be held in North America or Asia.
For Brazil to host the 2014 World Cup, the country would need a lot of investment in security and infrastructure.

.................................

The 2018 WC is still a big mystery at the moment as no-one's even sure which continent it will be on, let alone which countries will be bidding. In fact, I don't think I can ever remember so many countries displaying an interest in hosting a WC before, everybody seems to be up for it.

From Wikipedia:

Countries that have announced their interest include Australia, England, Mexico, the Netherlands and Belgium (joint bid) and Spain. A bid from Canada is also possible. A bid from China is also likely, though the Chinese are currently focusing their attention on the upcoming 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. Other slight possiblilities are Saudi Arabia and New Zealand.

........................

And now we're talking about a Greece-Italy bid, and a Spain-Portugal bid......there's gonna be a lot of bids to compete with for this one!!

Greece should host with a country like Bulgaria IMO...

Niether Italy nor Turkey need another nation to host with mainly due to there high populations making stadiums more feasable.

Well as the country that invented the damn game, we have more of a right than some......

And a 52 year gap is a ******* disgrace, when Germany has hosted it twice in 32 years as well as an olympics and Euro championships.

Estádio Algarve is used by Louletano - and it would also be used by Farense if they hadn't closed their professional team - and in other sporting events. Why do talk without knowing things? Is Zentralstadium better?

Greece can host a Euro, not a World Cup. Club teams are not big enough bar maybe 4 (PAO, OSFP, AEK, PAOK) to have those size stadiums.

Now a Eurocup yes.

I don't think FIFA would want a) a joint bid, and b) a European nation to hold a WC when they have not even been tested with a Euro Cup! Look at Portugal, they held a successful Euro 2004, and they now have lots of quality stadiums and will be in a good position to bid for a WC by about 2026/2030.

Good post.

I am 200% in favour of such an idea.

The two countries will have the chance to promote both sporting excellence as well as understanding and conciliation.

Well, as Crazy Mac has already aptly mentioned in his post, England gave the game to the world, it is about time football came home!

I do actually agree with you though to some extent, I think it should just basically come down to whoever has the best bid gets to host it! And I think England will have a better bid (imo) then any other country that I've heard is hoping for the 2018 WC.

But, even though the best bid should win it, you do (FIFA do) have to take into account many other factors, and one of those factors is whether a country has hosted it more recently then another. It is not the deciding factor obviously, but a factor nonetheless that will work in England's favour!

I don't forsee this ever happening. Italy can host any competition on its own. Greece on the other hand cannot host a world cup alone.
