How does it stay air conditioned when the roof is open?

I doubt that Iran will ever get a World Cup. As for China, lets see how the Olympics work out before being rash. I doubt very much that they'll get it before the USA. Next time it's in Asia I'd be surprised to see it going anywhere else.

Some confederations are supposedly wanting to put forth only 1 nation in the bidding. So the Asian group will have for Australia for 2022 as Bladder said. And of course, Australia's not going to win anyway, so maybe for the 2026-2030, round China can replace Oz as the Asian entry.

Uhmmm, basic law of physics: How does a hot air balloon lift off? Hot air rises; cold air settles. That's how.

I'm not Carrera but Carrerra I have one more "r" to avoid being associated wth a pornographic Goddess Asia Carrera. I don't, however, deny that my ID was inspired by her name

It's not only the attendance record, but the 94 WC was also the most PROFITABLE WC to date. That means it made the most money, despite only having 24 teams.

The most profitable WC to whom? FIFA? No. It was most profitable to USA because they didn't have to build new stadiums then. It has nothing to do with FIFA!

Today what most involves FIFA financially is broadcasting and sponsorship. They account for almost 90% of the total revenues from Worldcup but on the contrary ticket sales can not exceed 20% at most.

That's why the highest attendace Americans always boast of can not be the key to success of World Cup.
