I see that Spain / Portugal are emerging as many people's late favourites. But I'm not so sure about that.

Sure, they will get the Latin American vote, which means that they'll be fine in the first round. But I don't think that they'll get many votes from within UEFA - purely because other UEFA countries won't want to lose an extra qualifying place as a result of Spain AND Portugal qualifying automatically. I also doubt that Spain / Portugal will pick up many secondary votes.

Well what's a good time for East Asia?

A game at the absolute latest in the Pacific Time Zone (9pm) would be 1pm in Beijing....which translates to a 5am start time in London...no good

So I would say a 2pm start in the PST so in Beijing it would be 6am and 10pm in London.

In the EST, a 9pm game would be 10am in Beijing, 2am start in London. A 5pm game would be 6am in Beijing and 10pm in London.

So in review...IMO

Early game: 12 pm PST, 3pm EST, 8pm London, 4am Beijing
Middle game: 2 pm PST, 5pm EST, 10pm London, 6am Beijing
Late game: 4 pm PST, 7pm EST, 12am London, 8am Beijing

I'm just speculating though.

If anything they should be later to be solidly in the prime time slot in the Americas, but IMO it's a good time for Beijing cuz anything later and it will conflict with work. I didn't see a lot of the games in 1998 because they conflicted with school. :\

I'd say.

England-2018
USA-2022

But I wouldn't be suprised if 2022 went to Australia there a little bit of a favorite simple because they've never hosted it before.

Why should it be primed for East Asia? The times that make the most sense in the actual venue and time zone will prevail...not something timed for East Asia.

Nah. Even though East Asia has a potential great market I doubt that FIFA would forsake setting up ideal day/night times for its most rabid mature markets in Europe/Africa/Americas to serve East Asian prime time.

Having the games anywhere in the Americas makes it ideal to have early afternoon games in the Americas and while televising them prime time at night in Europe/MENA/Africa.

For the times I posted it's primed for NA/Europe.

I just figure that a 12am is the latest than Europe would want a game to start.

Theoretically "biggest" but they still DON'T pay TOP dollars. Cumulatively--and this is for a USA setting, it would still be Europe as the pmany LOCAL rimary market, and then of course, the host country because of the MANY local sponsors who help finance the event. The East Asia TV markets would probably be a tertiary consideration.
