It is more about the quality of Australian stadiums for world class events.

Not to sound rude, but if you do not like the thread, please do not post here.

I know the new Robina stadium for the Gold Coast Titans will be of very high quality, but I do not know the seating capacity.

Not to sound rude but, if this thread is "more about the quality of Australian stadiums for world class events", why give it the totally midleading title "FIFA World Cup 2018"?

Italy will probabley get a 3rd WC before anyone else but you'd expect the Spanish to get a 2nd one first.

yeah I don't see Italy getting a 3rd WC before all the other big European nations have hosted it twice, so England and Spain will host before they do I should imagine, and possibly Portugal or Russia.....

Different sporting events require different sorts of fields. As Australia has gripped soccer fever and are looking to bid for the World Cup in 2018, I wish to discuss our stadiums and their suitability for soccer.


and there is no option to change a thread name.

We should get it ahead of England thats for sure.

They have already hosted it and just HOW many times do we have to have a World Cup in Europe?

Time for FIFA to start hosting the Cup in new countries and not just the SAME old faces.

That is before you start talking about the outrageously over-priced Euro nations.

An Oz World Cup is the best fit for the World and not just these northern Euro nations.

Except for the fact many soccer pplaying nations are in Europe and for Europeans to travel to Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Hobart and all of southern Australia (even northern Australia) it's quite a long flight therefore more expensive. I do agree it would be good though. Melbourne's getting a new stadium but that can only seat 25,000. A new soccer field in Oz that could seat 80,000 would be cool. But only for the world cup. We can't really build too many new stadiums for soccer because we won't be able to fill them after the cup. (maybe NSW and QLD with rugby) We would definatley be able to fill them at the world cup. Since we got 96,000 for the practice match against Greece. Australia would be good for tourists as it's much cheaper. I like the idea. I mean it's not like you can just walk over to London any day you want. Sure it may be cool going overseas but it's not cheap!!!

Here's my list of stadiums.

Suncorp
MCG
Telstra Stadium
Telstra Dome
For Perth Subiaco
For Adelaide AAMI
The new GC stadium and other new stadiums. Some of those stadiums are way out of date and need major renovations and plus most of them aren't rectangle. Where would the final be hosted???? Telstra Stadium, The Dome, Suncorp, or the "G"????....
Oops I forgot the SCG. And princes park is hardly suitable for the world cup. And did you mention Geelong FC's home ground avalon or whatever. Princes park could be alright if it was bulldozed and remade.

would be nice to see some unlikely European countries to host a world cup in the future instead of always the usual's, its abit unfair when theres talk of nations expecting a 2nd or 3rd wc.

countries such as poland,czech rep,Ukrain and other eastern European countries should be considered in the future.

Remember that Stadiums must take away 10000 seats for all the Media set-ups that are required. Also the all WOrld Cup stadiums must be over 40 000

The only UEFA nations I can see being able to host a WC solo sometime in the future that havent already are Turkey and Russia. The European Championships are a much more realstic option for most of these nations considering the smaller size and the fact joint hosts are more likely.

I think the most important consideration is that the World Cup should go to a country, or pair of neighbouring countries, that have the facilities (stadia, hotels, transport infrastructure) to do it justice, rather than being awarded simply because "it would be nice if one of those little countries had a go"...

Yeah I agree. I mean Londons going for what. It's 4th Olympics. thats more than Athens!!! Surely other nations should have a chance. Manchester recently hosted the commonwealth games. I would love to see Oz get it while im alive. It will. Canada I wouldn't mind. China's getting the olympics already. But I agree with whats above. Of course FIFA wants money and it has to have good stadiums and infrustructure but what about Switzerland or something. Belgium???
