The WACA WA,Won't be used, being redeveloped and down sized
Subiaco Oval WA,Won't exist in its current form, either totally rebuilt or a new Stadium elsewhere
Perry Lakes Stadium WA,Recently demolished for housing
New Adelaide Oval SA,Renders exist on this site from the Australian Bid site
Football Park SA,Will be downsized, the stadium is unsuitable for temporary seating as the current stands are already very shallow in rake
Docklands Vic,There's plenty of pics of Docklands in "Rectangle" mode
Kardinya Park Vic,See Adelaide Oval
MCG Vic,Won't be altered from an Oval
SCG NSW,Never planned to be used. Too wide and too numerous stands of different rake to create an acceptable temporary rectangle
QE II Sport and Athletic Centre QLD,Never planned to be used
The Gabba QLD,Never planned to be used

and also these three Kiwi stadia which I think should be used in the bid too:Not going to happen. FIFA don't care much for joint bids, they certainly won't like one that crosses confederations
Eden Park Auckland NZNo need for Renders, plenty of pics on the skyscraper city NZ thread and the New Zealand 2011 Rugby WC thread
National Stadium Wellington NZSame as above
Lancaster Park Christchurch NZSame as above

Cheers,
Matty
Have a dig around Matty, plenty of pics to satisfy your itch.

In a boost to Australia's bid to host the 2022 World Cup, Prime Minister Julia Gillard met FIFA President Sepp Blatter in Zurich on Sunday. Ms Gillard made time for the meeting between visiting Australian soldiers in Afghanistan and making her maiden appearance with world leaders at the Asia-Europe meeting in Brussels.

It was a highly symbolic move that could potentially pay huge dividends when the host nation of the 2022 competition is named on December 2 in Switzerland."I obviously urged him to see the merits of Australia's bid for the World Cup," said Gillard.

"We are a great sporting nation, one of the biggest in the world and Australia has a great track record running such events including the Olympics and Commonwealth Games," she said.

"This was a great opportunity to talk through the bid before December."

Breakfast on the Bridge, the world’s greatest picnic, just got more exciting with the announcement that some of the country’s greatest football stars will be joining the annual celebration. It was announced in August that this year the event will have a football theme to show support for Australia’s 2022 FIFA World Cup Bid.

NSW Minister for Major Events Kevin Greene joined Qantas Socceroos coach Holger Osieck to announce members of the Qantas Socceroos, the newly crowned Asian Cup champion Matildas and Socceroos legends of the past will all be at the iconic breakfast picnic 50m above Sydney Harbour on the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The Qantas Socceroos play Paraguay at the Sydney Football Stadium the night before on Saturday 9 October, so Sydney will be well and truly focused on football.

“The NSW Government through Events NSW is thrilled to have the support of the Qantas Socceroos at Breakfast on the Bridge, the world’s greatest picnic on the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge,” Mr Greene said.

“What better way for the players to recover from their game against Paraguay than to take in breakfast with a view of the world’s most beautiful harbour alongside 6,000 other lucky people?”

FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter and FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke received a visit from the Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard at the Home of FIFA in Zurich on Sunday. The Australian delegation made the trip to FIFA headquarters as part of a voyage around Europe, which then took them to Brussels on Sunday evening. Among those joining Mrs Gillard on her visit was Australia's Ambassador and Permanent Representative in Switzerland, Tim Yeend.

“The World Cup in South Africa connected people together but above all it showed everyone what Africa is capable of doing,” said President Blatter during their meeting. "Everyone in Australia is very enthusiastic about it. Football is growing in Australia and we proved by hosting the Olympic Games in 2000 that we know how to organise major sporting events. Football’s values such as teamwork, friendship and determination correspond perfectly with the Australian people.”

After thanking the Australian Prime Minister for her visit, the FIFA President noted that “Australia has already shown its ability to organise tournaments with real fervour, like the FIFA U-20 World Cups in 1981 and 1993. Australians are passionate about football, as was demonstrated by the performances of the national team at Germany 2006 and South Africa 2010.”

You are in for a big shock kid.

Australia, the US and Japan are the only serious contenders for 2022.

Qatar's bid will go the same way as Doha's 2016 Olympic bid.

Deluded

Australia may not win 2022, but I can sure as hell tell you right now that Doha certainly won't.

Yeah when the unproven bs technologies failed him and he melted like an ice cream after coming from Zurich. The man turned into a retard for a month after that. One can only imagine the impact on the European players etc

The morning after Australia beat Paraguay the Sydney Harbour Bridge was turned into a massive football pitch where over 7500 people(chosen by ballot) enjoyed the chance to have "Breakfast on the Bridge" and show their support for Australia's World Cup bid

Sydney Harbour Bridge Becomes Football Pitch



10:25am UK, Sunday October 10, 2010

Ian Woods, Australia correspondent
The Sydney Harbour Bridge was transformed into a giant football pitch for a few hours to kick off Australia’s bid to stage the 2022 World Cup Finals.

The iconic bridge was closed to traffic overnight as workers rolled turf over the concrete, in readiness for the annual Breakfast On The Bridge event.

But joining thousands of the Sydneysiders enjoying a picnic and a stroll on the iconic landmark this year, were Soccerroo players Mark Schwarzer of Fulham and Everton’s Tim Cahill.

The pair were among those who watched as giant footballs were rolled across the bridge.

Schwarzer told Sky News: "I’m very confident that Australia has got what it takes to host a very, very successful World Cup."

Australia is a wonderful place, and we’ll give them a hell of a time if they get here

Frank Lowy, Football Federation Australia chairman

Australia is competing against the USA, Japan, South Korea and Qatar for the right to host the 2022 tournament.

The country had also intended to bid for the 2018 competition but withdrew when it became clear that Fifa wanted a European host.

A decision will be made on who will stage both tournaments in early December.

Frank Lowy, chairman of Football Federation Australia told Sky News he would not predict a victory for England but was glad his country wasn’t competing against the English bid.

Mr Lowy who was born in Czechoslovakia and grew up in Hungary and Israel, says the country is ready to welcome the world, just as it welcomed him as an immigrant in the 1950s.

"Australia is a wonderful place, and we’ll give them a hell of a time if they get here," he said.

Although the Socceroos have made their mark in international football, qualifying for the past two World Cup Finals, the domestic game lags behind Aussie Rules, rugby league and rugby union in popularity.

The Finals would be played during the Australian winter, putting it in competition with all those sports, and Aussie Rules administrators have complained about having to give up some of their venues if the bid is successful.

Australians back their 2022 World Cup bid

Australia is competing against four other countries for 2022

But Ben Buckley, the Federation’s chief executive, says the competition would help the game reach new levels of popularity.

He said: "A World Cup here would certainly leave a lasting legacy that would allow the game to compete alongside Australian Rules, rugby, cricket or other sports."

That could work in Australia’s favour, especially as their main rivals have already staged World Cup Finals in the past two decades.

Former Australia goalkeeper Mark Bosnich, now a pundit with Fox Sports, told Sky: "If you look at Fifa’s track record they do like to spread the gospel of the game of football around the world and one of the parts where it hasn’t been, in terms of a major competition like this, is here in Australia."

His fellow pundit and former Socceroo Robbie Slater points out that more people play football than any other sport.

"Football is the most popular game in the country at the grassroots level. What an inspiration to those kids that would be, looking forward to a World Cup in 2022."

Having been praised for staging the Sydney Olympic Games, the Melbourne Commonwealth Games and the Rugby World Cup already this century, Australia feels football’s premier event would be in safe hands.
