Because they know that it is not their turn for the World Cup. They last hosted the World Cup as recently as 1990 and are unlikely to be chosen to host it again for another thirty years, at least.

I reckon a joint Britain/Ireland bid would be cool.
The problem with shared World Cups, as far as FIFA is concerned, is that two World Cup places, rather than one, are automatically taken up by the hosts.

I very much doubt you'll see any european nation outside England/Germany/Italy/Spain/France host a WC again when they have the option of bidding for the european championships instead that bring in almost as much prestige/money yet cost a great deal less in stadium devolpment.

Greece could host it alone, but for the moment there is no reason to do so. Greece is one of the few small countries that can host the biggest events as well as the big countries.

Greece dosnt need to joint for Euro.

I think we could pull it off with ease.

Some people may think of it as a matter of promoting football in Greece which isnt actually the Number One sport.

Giorgos, football is the number one sport in Greece, by FAR.

Basketball is very popular and Greece has an excellent domestic league. In the mid to late 1990's basketball soared in popularity but it never surpassed football.

Let's be real here.

hey just a reminder there should not be any new joint bid for euros after
Austria-Switzerland so I think you can forget about Greece-Bulgaria. I agree with anyone saying Greece can do this one on its own.

A world cup in greece... They got a few stadium for the olympics but would need another 4 to welcome it properly... I don't see Italy willing to share nor Turkey.

I think Russia might try to bid for it as ludicrous as it might seem.

They're will not be a shared world cup in North America, Mexico doesn't need it neither the US and Canada already as 6 stadiums fully able to take it... They would just need one 36000 seater in Ottawa and another one in Quebec to go and bid... Canada's problem is not size it's rather population and accessibility. FIFA is reluctant to have world cup spread on these kind of huge countries. Brazil should get it easily 2014... Argentina is not ready for such an investment.

England can bid and welcome it pretty much when they want they have the gratest championship, amazing stadiums. It would a pretty compact worldcup which is great for everyone and off course easy to get there. They also gave us the game THEY DESERVE IT... But it would be a pricey one, that's the only down point to it. Guys would you please just accept to switch to euros for the time of the world and go back to the pound right after it. Please !!!

A WC? No way in hell.

Max 2 stadia in Athens, let's say another 2 in Thessaloniki.

Then what? Will PAS Giannena play in a 40,000 seater? Or Panaxaiki?

Fact is a Euro, yes. 2 in Athens, 2 in Thessaloniki, 1 in Ioannina, 1 in Larissa, 1 on Crete, and either/or Patra-Volos.

Sure.

Its not going to happen but the distance between Korea and Japan was greater than that between Greece and Italy.

i dont think any country in geographically eastern europe should hold the world cup. There are several reasons for this, first of all, the stadiums are not where they should be although in 12 years they could be

Second of all, some countries will be willing to host the world cup just to be in the world cup. Italy is always in the world cup, therefore, they deserve to host it since they've shown consistency. However, Greece has only been in the world cup once, and i believe had the worst performance.

So what i'm saying is that countries like italy, germany, england, france, brazil, argentina etc you get the point, countries that always participate in the world cup should be given more of a chance since them hosting the world cup wont seem as though they're just trying to be in the world cup (since host nations are in no matter what, they dont have to qualify)

Turkey was good 4 years ago, but they have not yet shown consitency neither.

South Africa which is the next host nation, showed consistency before, but i dont know if they should have gotten the 2010 bid...It doesn't seem fair (but an African country had to eventually get it, and South Africa would probably be economically ready and thats why they prob got it)

Tambien existe la posibilidad de hacerlo entre los 5 paises que fueron libertados por El Libertador Simon Bolivar, los cuales son (COLOMBIA, PERU, BOLIVIA, VENEZUELA Y ECUADOR).
