Started off well, felt a little like they forgot their target audience with the cheesy cartoon kangeroo bit; not sure how that would have gone down really even though it was a interesting way of showing off the country.

From what I've seen of past World Cup presentations, they're generally not as slick or cinematic as the ones countries produce for Olympic bids...so lower your expectations a bit, I don't think it was a bad presentation in all honesty.

7/10

Franks speech was good, exactly what I expected and wanted from the presenation while Elle looked like she didn't really know what she was doing there at all or what to say. Its hard having a "celebrity" promoting a product she hardly even endorses (when was the last time she took residence in Australia?) and with a British accent to boot.

The 'humorous' Kangaroo segment is exactly the reason why Australia shouldn't bother with such gimmicky sideshows...it did nothing to promote our bid but rather the opposite. I'v seen home made tourism commercials of Australia from youtube which would have done a better job.

ok. I admit that I had never seen presentations for the World Cup. but I've seen for many Europeans and Olympic Games.
stadiums? legacy? transport... never told about it .
I thought it was a sloppy documentary about Australia . and then too many references to the Olympics and other sports. had nothing to do with the world cup

I thought it was a good presentation, in what looked like a very dark room, interesting to see how the other bidders go. I think Australia got the message out about their climate, their security, their tourist attractions and the football passion. I thought it was interesting that Frank Lowie, straight away received a rousing set of applause. That's a good sign for Australia.

Well it did in that they said that Australia has done a long, qualified and successful apprenticeship it hosting major events and that the World Cup is the missing piece.

Talking in terms that FIFA understand, Westfield boss Frank Lowy said handing Australia the sporting extravaganza made good business sense.

"As you know, I am a businessman, and business is in my blood," he said.

"I know a good investment when I see one. And I know - that a World Cup in Australia in 2022 will be a fantastic investment by FIFA for the future of our game.

"Not just in financial terms, important as that is. But it will also pay off because of the growth in the number of people who will play and watch football in our region, in the future.

"Gentlemen, I began by telling you that as an immigrant to Australia I was very warmly welcomed.

"I can assure you that if you take up our invitation to bring the FIFA World Cup to Australia then you, and the rest of the football world, will be very warmly welcomed too.

"You will be welcomed by perhaps the most multi-cultural society in the world. And that fact has great positive implications for the World Cup."

Football Federation Australia chief executive Ben Buckley reinforced the financial viability of Australia's bid.

"By 2022 Asia will deliver to FIFA an unparalleled growth opportunity," he said.

AUSTRALIA=SPORT
What do you expect,we've hosted 2 of the best Olympics ever,we draw massive crowds to everything.
We don't exaggerate crowds either-they get to 100k,120k

A World Cup as explained ,would be one in the "true sense" of the meaning that FIFA has come to expect-not like the plastic Doha bid which will be using an Australian to shown a full on CGI film-because nothing exists

In FIFA voting terms

Russia 12
England 10
(or a tie, but if its 11-11 I think Blatter will go with England)

Australia 14
Qatar 1
USA 7

Well it's a totally different tone in the Korean presentation.
Dry but Interesting.

That continental rotation stuff is O.K. but I donīt agree with the FIFAīS "real politik", they are just opening markets and forget their foundations. If iberian or english bids are the best without any doubt, why donīt they simply win?

I think itīs a bit ridiculous that an utopic bid without any real basis could host the World Cup instead of a solid candidate... anyway I think Russia will win.

However, my betfairīs bid will be on Iberian bid as well!

Yes they have everything but there is no new info as to why we would choose the host of the 3rd last world cup when there are 208 nations

I don't understand this scoring of the bid presentations out of 10. I thought Korea's presentation was good, solid and very professional. I thought they stole the technology part from Japan but anyway we will see what Japan come up with shortly and before that here come the vote riggers with their unproven technologies, bribes, health risks and all.
