And whereas you can guarantee (if England qualify) that there will be tens upon tens of thousands of England fans in South Africa for 2010, you can equally guarantee (since SA isn't just over the border) that there will not be that many Polish fans.
south africa is quite packed in the summer with english fans when they visit for cricket...they quite like south africa...

have a look..a friendly match between south africa and england in 2003

Actually 120,000+ fans attended the 5 England games. In every case there were at least 50,000 extra watching the game on Giant TV screens across the city they were playing.

If you do the maths, it explains it all. And as JimB explained. Considering Poland is only across the border 300,000 is a pretty poor number.

England are the best (well, their fans are)
ESPNsoccernet Updated: July 2, 2006

The World Cup Organising Committee (OC) have hailed England fans as the best in the world following a mainly trouble-free tournament in Germany.


There were only a few minor incidents in Gelsenkirchen yesterday - more than 100 drunk English fans were taken into temporary custody after clashing with the police - following England's epic shoot-out defeat to Portugal.


Given the 80.000 English fans in Gelsenkirchen, the figure stands relatively small - and OC spokesperson Gerd Graus confirmed the very positive perception of England supporters throughout the whole tournament.

'The English fans said before the tournament they were the world champions as far as celebrating is concerned and they certainly lived up to his billing,' Graus said.

'It was great to see the celebrations of the thousands of fans who poured into the country. They celebrated football in a very unique way. We have to note the minor incidents but all in all they are pretty much negligible.'

FIFA spokesperson Markus Siegler offered a word of warning.

'In general English fans - fans - are among the best in the world. We know that not only since this World Cup,' he stated.

'They were great fans. And I emphasise fans - they love football and are no troublemakers.

'But 100 troublemakers are still too many.'

And if it wasn't for the Romans, we'd all still be sitting in caves. I think England deserves to host the cup in 2018, I fail to see though what WW2 has to do with this discussion.

And no, you don't have the best football stadiums. Maybe in 2018 but not right now.

yo Kampfy dont listen to rubbish like that WW2 crap, only thing that matters is who has the best bid and who deserves it and in both cases its England.

Australia plans for big tournaments.

Australian football is hatching ambitious plans to host the 2011 Asian Cup finals as well as the 2018 or 2022 World Cup finals.

Football Federation Australia chief executive John O'Neill outlined a strategy of firstly proving to Asia that Australia is capable of staging the region's championships, then using that to show the world what it can do.

The new FFA administration headed by billionaire football lover Frank Lowy has already got the ball rolling by achieving three key targets in short order - getting the Socceroos to the World Cup finals, tying Australia's future into Asia and getting the domestic A-League up and running.

There is no reason to believe it can't come good with its wider goals in a country that has already hosted major events such as Olympic and Commonwealth Games and rugby's world cup.

"We are very ambitious to host major events," said O'Neill.

He said the Asian championships rotated in a four-year hosting pattern between central, western and eastern Asia and Australia's ASEAN zone.

The FFA, along with State and Federal governments, could put forward a "compelling" case to host the Asian Cup in 2011, he said.

"What we've got to do is establish our credentials so that we can put our hand up to host the World Cup," he said.

The earliest that could happen is 2018, he believes.

After this year's tournament in Germany, the 2010 World Cup has been awarded to South Africa, Brazil is a hot favourite for 2014 and there is speculation that London has been promised the next one.

"We would be very keen to give it a crack in 2018, and if that doesn't work to put a stake in the ground for 2022," O'Neill said.

"The World Cup has been to America and Asia, and now it's going to Africa. The only area of the world that has missed out is the Pacific."

2018 World Cup bid welcomed - AAP

Any bid for the 2018 World Cup finals will have the support of all state and territory governments, as well as the commonwealth, Prime Minister John Howard has said.

He said he briefly discussed the matter over dinner at The Lodge in Canberra on Thursday night.

"The bid has to come from Football Federation Australia- Frank Lowy and John O'Neill," he told Southern Cross Radio.

"What I'll indicate is that, if the football federation chooses to make a bid, all governments in Australia, the commonwealth and the state and territory governments will all support that bid and do everything we can collectively to help it come to a successful conclusion."

And state and territory leaders have joined the PM in backing the proposal.

The leaders, meeting in Canberra for the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) meeting, said they would back any moves for a World Cup bid forum, to be led by the Football Federation of Australia (FFA).

"It is the largest sporting event yet to be hosted in Australia, and the Socceroos' performance in Germany has generated enormous interest and support for the game," the leaders said in a joint statement.

"We look forward to assisting the FFA's development of a World Cup bid through discussion and planning around a range of issues including infrastructure, facilities and security."

"It is important that they are fully supported by all levels of government in developing their bid so that Australia has the best fully prepared bid to host the world's biggest sporting event."

FIFA World Cup 2018 (Which Stadium)

The winner is Australia.... or is it.

Yesterday at the Commonwealth heads of state meeting, it was suggested that Australia could put in a bid to host the world cup in 2018.

We have a few problems though. Where would the final be held? Some would say at Telstra Stadium in Sydney (ex Olympic Stadium Australia), others would say the new revamped MCG or Testra Dome in Melbourne. The SA premier has said: "of course Adelaide should have the final" (yeah right). We have enough stadiums but are they up to scratch with what FIFA and the world would expect.

I have also heard that FIFA wants the cup to be held in Europe every 3rd cup so next we are in South Africa, then South America.

What about Australias crap increase in the world rankings. When we defeated Uraguay to get into the world cup, I was sure that we would a move up more spaces then they did, but they had a greater increase than us. I do believe you need to be in the top 32 nations to host the world cup due to automatic entry for host policy.

One thing is for sure, If Australia was to host the FIFA World Cup, it would be the greatest event in Australias history. That includes the 1956 and 2000 Olympic Games.

I understand this is the stadium area, so my main point is, do you think Australia has enough decent stadiums to host the cup. I have a list here that I believe are large enough to hold games.

We have:

Telstra Stadium - Sydney 83 500 capacity



Aussie Stadium - Sydney 42 000 capacity





Sydney Cricket Ground - Sydney 44 000 capacity



Melbourne Cricket Ground - Melbourne 100 000 capacity



Telstra Dome - Melbourne 56 300 capacity





Princess Park - Melbourne 35 000 capacity
[


GABBA - Brisbane 42 000 capacity



Suncorp Stadium - Brisbane 52 500 capacity





Subiaco Oval - Perth 43 000 capacity





AAMI Stadium - Adelaide 51 500 capacity




What do you think? Many of the stadiums are used for cricket or Aussie Rules football so thy might not be what a traditional soccer stadium would be like. The federal government would not build another stadium but they might pay for the upgrade of some. Telstra Stadium and Telstra Dome are very new and the MCG and Suncorp have been redevoloped recently. In the even of Asutralia getting the world cup, which stadium should it be held in?

I disagree with our Stadiums and by the Time 2018 rolls around all our new stadiums will be out of date. I think Some people rate our AFL stadiums abit too highly.

But this is my list.

MCG(renovated)
Stadium Australia (renovated)
Suncorp(renovated)
Gold Coast (new stadium)
Perth (new stadium)
Adelaide (new stadium)
Canberra (new stadium)

I think it is unlikely that we could get all the staduims renovated or new ones built (where would they play AFL or cricket?)
