It has been well received in the British press and political support seems very strong at the moment with the chancellor promising to make it a personal mission of his to win the right to host the tournament. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/6352847.stm

Gordon Brown's kick-around
MANCHESTER has thrown its weight behind England's proposed bid to host the 2018 World Cup.

Bosses at the City of Manchester Stadium and Old Trafford have promised the grounds would be available for the competition.

If FIFA, the game's governing body, decides to play the 2018 World Cup in England, it would be worth millions to the Manchester economy.

Manchester United's 75,000 `theatre of dreams' is used to hosting high-profile matches and has already hosted the European Cup final and England's World Cup qualifying games.

The 47,000-plus capacity City of Manchester Stadium has been chosen to host the 2008 Uefa Cup final and has already staged international matches as well as hosting the 2002 Commonwealth Games. A spokesman for Manchester United said it was too soon to comment. But insiders have told the M.E.N. the club would be delighted to do its bit.

Bid

"FIFA has yet to decide which continent will get the 2018 World Cup and the FA has not decided whether it will bid, so there is no bid to talk about. But clearly we'd be delighted to be involved if a bid was launched," said a source.

Coun Val Stevens, deputy leader of Manchester city council, which owns the City of Manchester Stadium, said: "As a successful international city, Manchester would play its full part in supporting such a bid and we are sure that fans would welcome the chance to see world-class games on their doorstep. It would help reinforce Manchester's international standing as a premier sporting city."

Chancellor Gordon Brown claimed the tournament could help create `the greatest sporting nation in the world'. Accompanied by Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell and Sports Minister Richard Caborn, he toured the new Wembley stadium yesterday in a show of support.
Surely all good news England really wants it!

England should get it for sure but the only problem is australia look to be bidding for it and as we see when they got the 2000 olympics they dont play fair when it comes to bidding.

China might make a big push to get World Cup 2018 to China.

I could see 2022 in England

All right for WC England 2018 but let RWC 2015 to a Celtic bid (Ireland, Walles, Scotland)

I can't see FIFA letting the Finals out of Europe for 16 years (from 2006 to 2022), with or without the rotation. It'll be Europe in 2018 and Asia in 2022 most likely.

With politics moving so fast and the fortunes of the sport fluctuating around the world, I wouldn't be surprised to see the finals in the middle east in 2022 - with one of the oil giants hosting, especially with the links the UAE is forging at FIFA. Saudi Arabia are regular finalists now, a rebuilt Iraq (assuming civil issues can be sorted out in the next 15 years!), etc. Who knows?

Can't wait to see what kind of bid the Aussies will come up with. How many stadiums they'll plan on building, and where, and whether they will suss the need for rectangular venues... For purely selfish reasons, I hope they put a great one together and out do England - because much as I'd enjoy a trip home for the finals, it'd be a lot easier to go see games on my doorstep here in Oz!

I agree, i hope the bid involves new rectangle stadiums where they're needed. I don't want to see some half arsed bid with cricket stadiums used.

After South Africa I dont think the World Cup is going back there.

After Africa it will probably be the Americas with Brazil getting the 2014 World Cup

After that it will probably be Europe or Asia for 2018

England looks like the front runner for the 2018 world cup, UAE could host the 2022 world cup but highly unlikely given that drinking Alcohol in public is banned so I guess Fans wont like that.

So probably China or Australia for 2022 World Cup

FIFA should act as a beacon to the world and not stage World Cups in despotic states like the Olympics has done. So lets keep clear of places like China where money is placed above that of human rights and freedom.

Canada, Australia and England in no particular order should host the World Cup from 2018 onwards.

The silliest rule is that only one city is allowed to have two match venues. This will undoubtedly be London with Wembley and the Emirates. This of course means that Manchester can only offer one stadium, Old Trafford. Eastlands/C.O.M stadium is a great venue (hosting UEFA Cup final 2008) and is one of the biggest grounds in the country 48,000+ but simply cannot be used. Silly rule, FIFA, silly rule

I quite like the rule. It spreads out the game, causes less congestiion/overcrowing, just to make use of an extra stadium.

Imagine twice the number of fans crowding up Manchester instead of being spread between say, Manchester and Southampton.




Also, for all you doubters saying China, Australia, etc. 2018 WILL BE in Europe. Therefore England look to pretty much have it. As are Brazil in 2014.

Australasia isn't an issue...
If Sydney wanted the world cup 2moro and lobbied for it, i think they would get it. No1 ever says no to Sydney, its the chosen city. When it comes to brand recognition Sydney is number 1 so that shouldnt be a problem.

Stadiums shouldn't be an issue...
Sydney's telstra stadium would be upgraded to some "worlds biggest" title, There is the SCG, Aussie Stadium and then you have the rest of Australia's stadiums. And by 20XX there will be more stadiums and interest in the game. It all depends on when the NSW govt. decides to lobby for it... Ill keep you all posted; however I know that China may be the bigger rival, not Europe. NSW Premier Morris Iemma did discuss hosting as early as 2014; however explained an obstacle and said if not 2014 than 2018. I don't think there were any intentions of going 2022, but we'll see.

By Australian city standards, Manchester and Liverpool would be considered "one city". Homebush and Moore Park are about the same distance apart as Anfield from Old Trafford. Especially in traffic.

It is a dodgy criteria which would be bent by FIFA if they had to.

I seriously doubt we (Australia) could win the 18 bid. Too much politics involved for us, being a minnow to win. Besides im quite Happy for the poms to win it (considering they dont win much else in sport lol). Passionate about the game and quite deserving. Its also logical for it to go back to Europe anyways. Lets just hope you guys do a better job than Manchester 02.

But as obvious as the winner seems, you do need other bidders which to my understanding Australia will be one. So we could do a hell kick-arse killer bid and leave no doubt where the WC is heading next. And thats down under and not the Big East.
