Wow that looks really really cool! I hope that more of the stadiums that will be built will look this special.

Thanks for posting genkie. It's centainly not bad, because I think it's unique, the architects for once were not trying to copy the allianz arena for example. I'm left with mixed feelings.

Looks good, very original not another copy. From the outside it doesn 't look like a stadium.

I would love there to be a Benelux WC; two proper football countries that have given the game plenty, placed near the heart of Europe with great infrastructure for fans and visitors - not to mention Euro 2000 was the best international tournament of the past 20 years. To think that the US, a country where football is no where near being a part of the general culture, might get their 2nd WC in last than 30 years yet Belgium or Holland may not have had one by then is both shocking and sad.

Well, your argument is valid, but there's also two valid reasons for the US bid: to get good American money and to try and convert Americans to soccer and finally establish a market there. Also, I guess FIFA wants to dissuade and/or hide the fact that Europeans have a hold on football, which I as a South American find a nice gesture at least. And since I know that after Brazil I won't see anyther WC in SouthAm in my lifetime, maybe a WC in in the US is as close as I can get (perhaps there might be one in Argentina or Chile in a very distant future, but nowhere else - heck, my country can't even afford to host a Copa America!).

However, if the Stade de Charleroi is a reality, I wouldn't mind a Benelux WC, what a great outward design. The inside is probably the two-tiered cookie-cutter stuff, though, so thats why they dont' show it.

Oh, and I haven't been following the thread, so I have to ask: was the FIFA ban on multiple WC hosts repealed? What exactly is FIFA's current position on that?

For one, America is an established market. It's not a big market, but established nonetheless. They have a good business model, and there are new football specific stadiums springing up always (and being filled up more importantly). There is more access to European football than ever before as well. Football never has to become anything big in the US to succeed. It's found its niche, and it can progress at its own pace.

Secondly, an American bid does nothing for football infrastructure and stadia.

The money is great, and FIFA will have that in the back of their mind, but its not the be all and end all. I would much rather see co-host bidding stay in the Euro-Championship frame, and not go beyond that.

Great, unique design. I would love to see the new Stade de Charleroi constructed soon no matter if they'll get the WC or not.

Anderlecht has decided not to wait for the new stadium to be built in replacement of the Koning Boudewijn Stadium.

These stadiums are "back-up stadiums"
