It's between the USA and Australia.

And methinks that FIFA would rather wait until 2026 for Asia to host again and hope China bids that time..

USA wants to host the 2022 World cup? Knowing they are very good at lobbying, I think they'll use everyway to win.
Eveycountry does it : prensent its bid as the best and point others weakenesses (real or supposed)
So Americans will use the fact that Qatar is too hot ant that Indonesia has political instabilty. There also is a posisbility they use the "Muslim country" point and associate it with insecurity and terrorism to try to fragilize Qatari and Indonesian bids.

Iberia for sure. Great stadiums, cities, people, food and weather. No contest.

Of all great football nations the Netherlands-Belgium (The Low Countries) bid is the only candidate that really deserves 2018. England got it's WC already in 1966 and Spain in 1982.

The Netherlands national football team is one of the best teams around (ranked 2nd on both FIFA and Elo-ranking), It won Euro 88 and reached two consecutive World Cup finals in 1974 and 1978 but lost both finals to their respective host nations, West Germany and Argentina. Wouldn't it be strange to be the only great football nation NOT to have organized a WC??

With a lot of new stadium development in both countries and their proven organisational skills (Euro 2000), it seems like a very logical choice to me....

My judgement!!!

I think this, it's the most fair

1994...North America UNITED STATES
1998...Europe FRANCE
2002...Asia KOREA & JAPAN
2006...Europe GERMANY
2010...Africa SOUTH AFRICA
2014...South America BRAZIL
2018...AsiaAUSTRALIA
2022...North America MEXICO, USA or CANADA
2026...EuropeRUSSIA or ENGLAND
2030...South America URUGUAY

And according to the thread, I don't think that Qatar and Indonesia could organize a World Cup, i'm not offend u but it's a little complicated cuz this countries are not "powerful" in soccer, so I dismiss them.

Japan and Korea...mmm I don't know, could be posible but Australia is the better option, inspite of Australia is officially in Asian federation, so, 2018 is for them, not for Europe, they gotta wait. 2022 I think CONCACAF deserve a WC because the last time was in 94 and my favorite candidate obviously is Mexico but I don't know, it would be great, the first country organizing a WC for third time!!! 2026 should be for Europe, 20 years after the last time in Germany, and I'd like Russia more than England, and 2030 unquestionably for Uruguay, celebrating 100 years of World Cups

Too hard to choose, all of the bids look great.

Russia would be a good choose, since it's a major european country and hasn't ever hosted the World Cup. England is the home of football and hasn't got it's second World Cup. Netherlands/Belgium and Portugal/Spain would be great bids also, but I don't see they winning, since FIFA doesn't like joint bids.

Would definitely go for Australia, it's a country where football is rising, and Oceania is the only continent which hasn't hosted a World Cup (even though Australia is a member of the AFC), i think it's a perfect choice.

USA has also big chances, even though they already got a Cup.

Japan and South Korea I don't think are serious contenders, come on, they just hosted one in 2002. Catar is a small country, they should concentrate on the Olympics, or perhaps make a joint bid with UAE. And Indonesia, don't know, maybe more in the future.

I'm still shocked that China didn't bid. They'd be my favourite to get 2022 if they'd submited a bid

They agreed to bid either on the World Cup or the Winter Olympics and chose the Winter Olympics. I think that FIFA will essentially ignore Asian bids for 2018 and 2022 because they want to go to China in 2026. The question is whether Australia is considered Oceania or Asia.

Since the US lost the right to host the 2016 Olympic Games i think the games are going to come back in 2022

I think that with the rising popularity of soccer in the US, I think that the US has a strong chance of winning in 2022. If that's the case, the final should be at either the Rose Bowl or the LA Coliseum in Los Angeles. They are both the spritual home of American soccer.

Neither comes near the standard of a World Cup stadium and neither has any source of funds for the massive renovations it would take to bring them up to standard. If the stadium in Industry is built, it will hold the matches in Los Angeles. While the Rose Bowl and Coliseum are nice emotionally, structurally they fall well short.

I think if the US does get the bid, New York will likely host the final, with DC having a chance to do so if Daniel Snyder gets his new stadum.

That's not entirely correct. Blatter stated that he didn't liked an organisation like Japan/South-Korea back in 2002, which were indeed two separate organisations.

If an organisation presents itself as one political organisation (like the Netherlands-Belgium bid), it will be considered as one country, as Blatter said.

Also mention that the distances between major cities, language differences (both Dutch speaking countries) and cultural differences are all very small. Even political it's sometimes considered as one nation; the BeNeLux.
