That proves that it is the only sporting venue that was used to rank Dubai Sport City. Besides the ICC also chose to set up their headquarters in DUBAI SPORT CITY!

Just stop. Do you have any idea how ridiculous this is getting? It's gone past pathetic to just plain sad.

So then the Rungrado May Day Stadium in North Korea is the best in the world since it has the biggest capacity in the world.

Can I ask you why you said Dubai had the best cricket ground in the world?

Because of its facilities.

I doubt most people who watch cricket are aware of a cricket ground in Dubai. I wasn't. When I think of cricket I think of Lords, the Oval, the MCG, the massive ground in India whose name escapes me. Besides which, what the fook does this have to do with Australia's bid?

Will you ever realize that good facilities don't warrant the title of 'best cricket stadium'? I don 't get why Dubai are building these sports grounds, it seems that the only good events they get are between two different countries and don't involve the UAE

Its funny how you say its the best in the world etc, when the usage and the facilities are being used at 1/10 its actual its capacity...

No point building the biggest and/or best stadiums in a place where no one will go.


And why make fun of us, yes we got owned epically, but we all expected it, just not that much xD.
And at least we qualified.

Whats the point of hosting the world cup if you can't even qualify for it though, your just playing the system and reaping the economical benefits.

This is Australias bid thread anyway, stop raging, create another thread on a Aus vs Middle east debate thing, and we will go there and debate, not in here.

I don't mind discussing the pros and cons of the likes of Australia and their competing bids from the US, Qatar, Korea and Japan but why are we discussing the UAE?

How can we discuss the performance of Australia in 1 match as being a reflection of its ability to host and embrace an event? What rubbish.

Australia is the mega-events know how expert. People import Australian knowledge to run their events.

There is absolutely no comparison to Qatar, one third the size of Sydney, and Australia as a nation bidding for the event. To try to make any comparisons would be ludicrous.

Thanks Mo...Plenty of sense in what you are saying.There are plenty of times we can write of South Africa,Japan or Korea as potential hosts if we only look at on field performances at certain times.

I think Australia have boosted their chances for 2022 during this WC.The Durban game was dominated by Australian fans!...Was there any Germans in Durban on Sunday?Consider the facts..An Australian team which has the modest hope of a goal of reaching the second round,against the German team and fans which are there to win the whole thing....and the Australian passion for Football wins out in Durban,in a country where the code is severely lacking in profile,but growing in stature.
Or the 20,000+ fans who turned up at 4am in 5deg weather at Sydney Fan Fest(nevermind the 20,000 who were locked out and turned away due to over capacity)....

At the moment,the team is far from good enough.In saying that,I hope the FFA mob in RSA relay the true support for the National Team to FIFA and not just base it on one poor performance against a team which in all likely way win the tournament.

Totally agree. I think they're aware of the potential for football in Australia - to the point which Sydney is one of six FIFA Fan Fest cities. I honestly don't think there's a single city in Australia that hasn't been struck by World Cup fever. Federation Square in Melbourne was packed, as was Darling Harbour, Reddacliff Place, Circle on Cavill were packed (and that's all I know of, I'm sure it was like it elsewhere too). Despite the disappointing loss, it was still a hell of a lot of fun and people were running around flying Socceroos flags everywhere .

At first I was a bit skeptical about South Africa's hosting of the World Cup, but I definitely think that SA has thus far proven itself capable of hosting intl events. Next stop, the Summer Olympics Games!

I was using the UAE to compare to what Qatar might look like in the future - infrastrucutre wise. Then some people started insulting Dubai , and every action has a reaction!

At the time they were allocated the tournament(2004) they had qualified for the 2002 WC. Learn your facts or GTFO off.

Yip, both countries are unique but Australia has hosted major events before and has developed into a western country whereas Qatar is like a mix of east meets west and is still developing into something.

Every nation needs a first chance to host such event. Just like South Africa is getting it's first chance to host a major sporting event excluding the '95 Rugby World Cup.
