2012, unless the timescales change (2010 host was announced in 2004).

yes,perhaps yuor right about Europe not hosting the world cup.I would say then,that all the Aussie players in Europe should go back home now and play in your own domestic league.I'd like to see that as a condition for hosting the WC,that the majority of that countries players play their football at home.
in Europe,and especially England,we put more time/effort and money into football than anybody else,only to have people who have been only playing the game seriously for 5 minuteshow the game should be run

I don't see why Australasia, specifically, should host the World Cup before it returns to Europe.

Australia is now a member of the Asian Football Confederation. So they will have to compete with other big Asian countries when it comes to hosting the World Cup. I would say that, at the moment, China is the slight favourite to host the next World Cup in Asia - either 2018 or 2022. Australia may have to wait a further 16 years or so.

Look, half the nations competing at the world cup are European nations, and 95% of the players play in Europe so of course EUROPE should host it more often, its fair and makes much more sense.

Also without UEFA, FiFa is nothing.

Theres also the option of Brazil co hosting with Argentina/Columbia which would leave them only needing 4-6 new stadiums.

I'm sure they'd preffer Brazil to host alone but if they can't then I could certainly see them going with it. The extra qualifing spot might not be that much of a problem if say Brazil/Argentina are the hosts since the other South American nations likey wouldnt be that upset at losing one if it ment they didnt have to face them.

FIFA arent interested in joint hosting anymore. I don't see them settling for co-hosting. They'd just turn to the USA instead if brazil was not ready.

Chile/Argentina were seriously considering a rival bid so I doubt joint hosts are that out of favour even if FIFA publicly state they preffer solo bids. As I said the main reason for FIFA's dislike of joint hosts is that an extra automatic spot has to be found but considering Brazil and Argentina have qualified for every WC since 1970 thats not likely to be a problem. Going for 4 1/2 places with them would be more difficult for the other south american nations than going for 3 1/2 places without them.

The USA would be an option I spose but its a different federation that lacks the geographic/cultural links that Mexico had in 1986.

its also the logisitics of two hosts that..two different countries with different laws and infrastructure...also cross border traveling between venues...but who knows...i dont think FIFA will be accepting co-hosting in the near future..

They have made a sizeble commitment to having a south american nation host in 2014 so I wouldnt be supprized to see them accept joint hosts in order to follow though with that. In the case of Brazil/Argentina that wouldnt actually be much of a problem geographically considering both nations have most of their populations in the south east and north east respectively.

If they did have to move it outside South America I'd say England, Spain plus maybe Australia and China would be more likely hosts than the USA.

well i hope u dont get me wrong...im all for a brazilian tournament, and although for any developing country its going to be a challenge a world cup would be fantastic in brazil..FIFA would need real persuading to rethink a possible co-hosting between brazil and another country.

China has many issues with human rights abuse. They struggled with the Olympics so they mat have the same problem with the soccer world cup.

I wouldn't mind if Mexico gets the 2014 WC when Brazil can't handle it.

Just like in 1986 when Colombia couldn't handle it.
