If it were to be England again (even though we will not bid for some time), the Eight venues I would choose (complete by 2008) would be;

2 from London:
Wembley, 90,000


Emirates Stadium, 60,000



2 from Manchester:
Old Trafford; 76,000


City of Manchester Stadium, 49,000



Liverpool:
New Anfield, 61,000



Birmingham:
Birmingham Stadium, 55,000

[img]http://************/5d3pd2[/img]

Newcastle:
St James Park, 53,000


Sunderland:
Stadium of Light, 49,000



Plus to other 80,000+ stadiums in London




Plus other UK stadiums not in England!
Millenium Stadium, Cardiff 75,000
Ibrox, Glasgow 52,000
Hampden, Glasgow 52,000
Celtic Park, Glasgow 60,000
Murrayfield, Edinburgh 64,000

And Stadiums over 40,000 in other parts of England
Villa Park, Birmingham 45,000 (52,000 by 2012)
Elland Road, Leeds 41,000
Hillsborough, Sheffield 40,000
Anfield, Liverpool 45,000 (to be demolished)
Goodison Park, Liverpool 40,000 (to be replaced by 50,000)
Stamford Bridge, London 44,000 (to be increased to 60,000)

So thats around 22 stadiums capable of hosting a world cup match (by fifa's WC standards)! Does any other European country compete with this? (Maybe Germany or Italy)

It's more likely that England will bid for the World Cup than Euros, such is the quality of the stadia in England (nothing against any other countries-especially Italy).
England could host a successful tournament in about 2 years time once the new Emirates stadium is built and Old Trafford and Twickenham are expanded. It seems though that no European country will host the tournament for some time.
My guess is 2010 South Africa, 2014 Brazil, 2018 Australia, 2022 somewhere in Europe. Spain/Italy/England have the best chances to host a World Cup in 2022, if a non-european country gets it in 2018.

Italy's stadiums are old and ugly, plus they have already hosted world cup or euro in the past.
Poland and Ukraine need it more, it would help their economy and change the image of eastern europe to the world.

I never really thought about it, but here are all the stadiums that have hosted and will host a final in a major tournament since 2000 to 2008:


De Kuip (no track) - Euro 2000




Yokohama International Stadium (track) - WC 2002






Da Luz (no track) - Euro 2004






Olympia Stadion (track) - WC 2006






Ernst Happel Stadion (track) - EURO 2008

We were talking about tracks before, and it's interesting to see how many have hosted a final.

It's sad.

A soccer final should be played in a stadium with no track.

I support Hungary and Croatia. Two cool countries where I like to go on vacation. They deserve the Euro. Good luck!

Whilst I'd favour Poland/Ukraine, as it'd be a huge bost for Eastern European football, I don't like joint bids at all. Both of those countries are big enough to go on their own.

This stadium will be a big step down from the beutiful La Luz stadium which hosted the Euro 2004 final.
Actually I like all of Portugals stadiums for Euro 2004 more than those for Euro 2008.

Greece unveils ambitious plans to host Euro 2012
Mon 11 Jul, 2:59 PM

ATHENS (AFP) - Euro 2004 champions Greece have plans to spend 115 million euros (138 million dollars) on six of eight stadia needed for their candidacy to host the 2012 European football championship, a sports ministry source told AFP.

The Greek bid will include stadia in Athens, Salonika, Patras, Volos and Iraklio used in 2004 Olympics football tournament, plus two new privately-funded facilities in the rural cities of Larissa and Yiannina, the source said Monday.

Of eight proposed stadia, only the 72,000-seat Olympic Stadium in Athens and the 33,000-seat Karaiskaki Stadium in Piraeus, near the capital, are deemed ready to run, the semi-official Athens News Agency (ANA) reported.

The Greek file will be submitted to European football governing body UEFA on July 21, ANA said.

UEFA will announce a shortlist of the three best candidate cities in November 2005, and will decide on the winning bid a year later.

Azerbaijan, Italy, Romania, Russia and Turkey also intend to submit solo bids for the event, while Croatia/Hungary and Poland/Ukraine are working on joint candidacies.

Sports authorities have had trouble filling stadia built or upgraded for the Athens Games, with sources within the Athens 2004 organising committee (ATHOC) admitting that the facilities surpassed Greece's post-Games requirements.

A sports ministry source however shrugged off such concerns on Monday.

"Both the Larissa and Yiannina stadia were approved on the basis of fan potential," he told AFP. "Last season, Larissa FC attracted an average of 15,000 fans per game despite playing in the second division."

The bids will be presented to UEFA on July 21.

Is the Ernst Happel Stadion being upgraded at all? It looks very sub par for a final.
