URUGUAY 2030

It's not a request, it must be done for the spirit of the Tournament.

I think you'll find Australia has now joined the Asia Confederation. So you'll have to choose either China or Aussie, not both.

Do they have the capacity and ability to host it? They have the Centenario, don't know about other stadiums, but 2030 is far away I guess they have time to renovate and build new facilities

It would certainly take a lot more to host it than it did with the 10 team, 3 stadia World Cup in which all three stadia were in Montevideo:

- Estadio Pocitos
- Parque Central
- Centenario

Assuming they would need 12 stadia minimum, it would take a lot of effort to figure it out, but I would hope that if they couldn't do it all themselves that FIFA would help out somehow. At the least, you would think they will renovate the Centenario into the Bicentenario I'm sure that's not a real name...

Uruguay with its 3 million inhabitants, half of which live in Montevideo, will never host a World Cup again.

I'd guess the most likely thing to happen will be for Argentina or Argentina/Chile to host in 2030 but for Centenario to host the opening ceremony/game.

Apart from the fact that you lost two years after China (and all the dates thereafter are wrong!), that list appears to be based on a strict policy of rotation.

Won't happen. FIFA have discarded rotation as unworkable. They only introduced it to ensure that South Africa won the vote for 2010.

The World Cup will definitely return to Europe in either 2018 or 2022.

Both Australia and China now belong to the Asian Confederation. No way will they both host the World Cup with only one World Cup in Canada separating them.

Based on your list, England are not due to host the World Cup within the next fifty years. That would mean 100 years or more since England last hosted the World Cup - during which period (according to you) Mexico would have hosted it three times. Again, that is not going to happen.

I'd agree, unless as I suspect that is, the last comment is directed at England only, because hooliganism across the world appears to be dying down, and certainly has amongst England fans abroad.
Totally agree with you. Some people just refuse to see what is evident. Then it's those same people that keep quiet and whistle away when things go terribly wrong - like the innocent brasilian shot dead because he was a "terrorist".

I have no doubt that Australia is capable on putting on a great World Cup but one thing the puzzles me is that with the relatively small population and the the dominance of other football codes, when do you play the Cup. One would assume the European summer while Australia is in it's mild winter.

Problem is most cities stadiums are taken up by the other codes during this time and FIFA requests that venues are not played on for a month before the Cup so the fields can be in their best shape. Soccer isn't big enough in Australia (I doubt by 2018 aswell) to warrant 40 000 plus stadiums for its exclusive use.
How would the Australian Football League and the National Rugby League be willing to pause their seasons for 2 months so that soccer can use them?

One thing going for Australia is its time zones shared with asia.
With Perth being so isolated on the West Coast, it would make sense for Perth to host a group exclusivly. Being +8 hours to London, Perth shares the same time period as the whole of China and is the closed city to European time. Night games for Perth would start at morning tea time for most Europeans. The American (north & south) would most likely be based on the east coast.
