What countries do I think should get it?

China- (not the biggest sport there, but believe me, they'd get up for the greatest event in the world

Nigeria- Lost narrowly to South Africa

Australia- Need more stadiums, but I'd like to see it there at some point.

USA- Who wouldn't want the Copa Mundial to come to their home nation??
For starters Nigeria didn't lost the bid to South Africa for 2010., LYBERIA, MOROCCO AND TUNISIA lost the bid, being Morocco the closest., Australia has stadiums and has the potential of building new ones (and has the turist appeal)., In 10 years China will have the largest under 20 fan base in the world and finally, Mexico has the right, the desire, the fan base and economic potential to do the 2022 world cup in front of the US.

3) australia sits in an unsuitable time-zone for the traditionally largest tv viewerships of europe and south america.

i'd guess that australia will be competing to host the 2022 world cup with china:

2010: south africa
2014: brazil / south america
2018: england
2022: china / australia
South American Countries has stated it doesn't want to build new for the World Cup. No chance they will get it then.

This has gotten a bit more interesting:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/foot...ls/5187170.stm
http://today.reuters.co.uk/news/news...D-COLOMBIA.XML

Meanwhile, there are still some doubts as to whether Brazil is capable of hosting:
http://sport.monstersandcritics.com/...2014_World_Cup

I still think it's Brazil for 2014. However, if this lights a fire underneath their respective bottoms than it would be worth the trouble, especially if another more credible bid comes in.

Some interesting articles there man, especially that last one. I didn't know Brazil was quite this unprepared for hosting the 2014 WC.

I was particularly surprised by this bit of the article:

'Investments will have to be heavy as Teixeira and FIFA boss Joseph Blatter acknowledge that Brazil has to build 10 or 12 new stadiums for the World Cup, given the state of the current arenas.'

....... 10 or 12 new stadiums...that is just unbelievable! So basically they don't even have a decent stadium lineup to start with, they are just gonna build everything from scratch...that doesn't seem right somehow. For one thing it is gonna cost them a huuuuggggeeeee amount of money, for another there will be major issues over demand for such stadiums after the WC, and there will no doubt be the usual issues of corruption, money scams, construction problems etc etc associated with such a massive undertaking, especially in Brazil!

Whatever the situation, they had better start building some stadiums real quick, cus 12 stadiums in about 7 years is gonna be difficult!

Well it is going to a South American country/countries in 2014, no matter what happens, the only issue is which country/countries in south america is gonna get it.

But, as you rightly say, there are currently some major problems with the potentials bidders at the moment, especially the main candidate Brazil (just see the other thread in this section entited 'Your prefered FIFA World Cup hosts 2014 & 2018').

milwaukee is a city in the north USA



it has one of my favourite stadiums in the world (despite its problems)



but back to the point, its not a big enough city to hold the world cup and would need to build copious amounts of football stadiums. personally the sooner england get it the better as its been far too long since we've held it, especially now as the germans have held it twice after 66 the stadiums are here, the infrastructure is here (sort of) so just let us have it!(although given the apparent rotation system it probably wont be untill 2018 but as long as when its a choice out of european countries its england thats fine).

Not very supprizing when you consider almost all of the big Brazilian stadiums were built in he 50's and have had very little done to them since. These three proposals/UC are all I'v seen so far and one of them isnt large enough...

Look, I'm not saying Brazil won't have it. What I was arguing was that it's possible that they have to have some actual competition in order to help erase any doubts about their ability to host. I don't know if Colombia can take it away from them at this point, unless they make a deal to get access to Chavez' oil money, which would then make things very interesting.

However, if the pessimism in Brazil still persists, then another country can still win it, as amazing as that sounds.

Definately Australia for 2018. The Federal and State governments look serious about putting a bid together. When is the 2018 location announced?

I am. Europe should wait as they have just hosted the WORLD cup. Now, Africa will host it, then South America will host it, Shouldn't Australasia host before going back to Europe? After all it is the world game.
