LESS than eight weeks before FIFA decides who will host the 2022 World Cup, Paraguay coach Gerardo Martino said Australia should be a shoo-in.

Martino watched his team go down 1-0 to the Socceroos at Sydney Football Stadium on Saturday, and the Argentinian, who first visited the country as a player almost 30 years ago, believes Australia is favourite to win the bid. ''It's very simple. You have already held a competition like the Olympics here, which was very good, and you have all the infrastructure, plus Australia is a first-world country,'' Martino said. ''I was here a long time ago playing in the '81 Youth World Championships, and even then I was impressed. So I think you have a very good chance to win your World Cup bid.''

Martino also believes the level of football in Australia and the Oceania region has improved in recent years.''I don't think there is a big gap between the level of South American football and Australian football at the moment,'' he said. ''Australia is very competitive. Countries like Australia, Japan and New Zealand all did very well at the World Cup this year so it's always good to get experience against them.''

Paraguay's Sunderland defender Paulo da Silva, who crosses paths with a number of Australians in the English Premier League, was also impressed with the calibre of players this country produces. ''Of course I'm aware of the Australians playing in England,'' he said. ''Players like Tim Cahill, [Brett] Emerton, [Richard] Garcia are all very well known in the Premier League.''

I swear most behave as if they have not and will not read FIFA venue guidlines. They either have not listened to the Football Federation Australia's presentations to each state government or the FFA is as dumbshit as the State Gov's are. The FFA seem to think that ikea like flatpack stadiums of the likes found in the UK (southhampton, sunderland, derby etc...) are an appropriete alternative to what the USA will offer.

The State governments are playing aggressively for a Federal stadium grant, which while visually supporting the bid, the Feds have offered nothing of the kind.

Too many states seem to think that Ovals are worthy of inclusion and that FIFA will somehow choose them over a US bid with only rectangle stadiums which on average as we currently speak are light years ahead of Australia's. Mark my words: The 2018 and 2022 WC's will see no Oval stadiums except in extraordinary circumstances.
The best Australia can to do is compromise with retractable seating ala Stade de France.

Major problems being the AFL loving states and their lack of need for rectangular stadiums seating 45 000, even by 2022.

Victoria have a multipurpose stadium in Melbourne's Etihad Stadium, the MCG Oval area is too large for WC soccer while the almost finished Swan Street Stadium can not expand beyond its 31000 seat, even after it was said that the foundations had been built to support further development to 50 000 seats. One may believe this was a lie told to get the Melbourne Victory soccer club to accept the new home even after they were pulling larger crowds to Etihad Stadium.

South Australia seem hell bend on promoting the use of Adelaide Oval as their bid venue. They are having enough problems trying to get cooperation between the South Australian National Football League (SANFL) who want a redevelopment of their home AAMI Stadium (which would not take part in any bid) or co ownership of adelaide oval and the South Australian Cricket Association (SACA) who own the Adelaide Oval.

Western Australia's government refuse to talk of stadiums for another 18months while the 2 AFL clubs, the Rugby Union club and Soccer club beg for major upgrades or new facilities. The developments that have been entertained by teh government have been grossly inadequite. While a previous government's independently run 2 year stadium taskforce recomendations of a 60 000/70 000 seat multipurpose Stadium like State de France has been greatly ignored.

Queenland propose the use of an expanded Carrara Stadium as the venue for the Gold Coast while it is an Oval for Australian Football and is about to be further developed on the cheap for about $130 million AUD, it will also be used as the athletics stadium if the GC are successful in their commonwealth games bid. The Gold Coast rectangle stadium, finished 2 years ago seats 27500. Some bell-ends at HOK designed it so it is prohibitively expensive to expand.
There is also the very expensive exercise of reengineering Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium's roof so the 3rd teir can fill the corners in a tight effort to raise capacity to over 60 000 for the potential hosting of major knockout games.
Townsville needs a totally new stadium, Dairy Farmers is a total joke.

New South Wales is in the best position with Sydney's ANZ stadium and the Sydney Football Stadium needing only standard developments to being them up to 2018/2022 stadards. ANZ may temporarily square the ends off to create a more intimate enviroment. SFS will need to shorten the field, after the last facelift it is still to long for even Rugby. This will create extra space for seating, SFS will also need far more corporate and VIP facilities.
Newcastle's Stadium is currently being expanded with ample room for futher additions which has been illustrated in plans and impressions.
Canberra will probably need a new stadium, Bruce stadiums field is too long and the seating too shallow.
Wollongong/Illawara regions population and growth suggests it should be in a bid. The area lacks a perminent Rugby League club and doesn't have a Soccer club. WIN Stadium doesn't have the room to be rebuilt to hold 45 000 so a new stadium is essential yet typical of throwing good money after bad, WIN stadiums is getting a new Grand Stand on its western wing to bering capacity to 23000 including a huge amount of standing room.

Tasmania seems to have surrendered to the idea they will not be in a bid yet the state has 500 000 people, more than North Queensland and with higher density. I'd like to see a rounded rectangle stadium of 45 000 in Hobart. After a potential WC, the first tier is burried or made into a carpark, the field raised and you are left with an Oval for AFl seating 24000/28000. Kind of a Reverse of what they did to the City of Manchester Stadium after the 2002 Commonwealth Games.
Rough Drawing of Hobart idea:

WC mode


Post WC, ground tier remove and filled in with earth or carpark, reducing capacity by around 18000/20000.

Well that's a blast from the past, since writing that I feel a lot more confident in our bid. I wrote that pre Australian Bid webside launch and bid book submission. I'm far more satisfied with the proposed venues and there is clear evidence now that the State and Federal governments a doing far more than giving the lip service to the bid.

FourFourTwo, the world’s biggest football magazine with 17 global editions, has published a 12-page feature on Australia’s 2022 bid team and our bid book in their November issue. The issue marks the title’s fifth birthday in Australia and to celebrate the landmark it has sat down with every senior member of the FFA 2022 bid team to discuss the process ahead of the 2 December decision day. FFA chairman Frank Lowy, CEO Ben Buckley, head of logistics Stuart Taggart, head of media relations Rod Allen and head of international and corporate affairs John Boultbee all delved into their involvement in the bid and what the Australian public can expect from the tournament taking place Down Under in 2022.

FourFourTwo’s Editor Trevor Treharne was wowed with the vast scale and detail the 2022 bid process entails after getting an inside look at our efforts to bring the World Cup to Australia. “Putting together the feature was an incredible insight into a process that baffled even my wildest expectations of just how much needs to be considered and potential implemented for our 2022 tournament,” said Treharne. “For our readers, they get a previously unseen view of our bid book and the men who put together the most important document in the history of Australian football.

“Most reassuringly of all, after our readers have consumed all 12 pages of our feature with the bid team guys, they will be left feeling more confident about our chances than ever before. I know I am! “Put simply, the 2022 bid guys have done a brilliant job of attempting to bring the world’s biggest sporting spectacle to Australia, and discovering the lengths they have gone to in putting Australia’s proposal together was a sobering thought when I got back to the office!,” added Treharne.

The Australian 18 October
World Cup bid team met man accused of bribery

AUSTRALIAN World Cup bid delegates met a group of Nigerian officials last year, including the man at the centre of bribery allegations.
Football Federation Australia yesterday confirmed that Amos Adamu, the Nigerian president of the West African Football Union, who also serves on world governing body FIFA's executive committee, was at a meeting at the Australian high commissioner's residence during the under-17 World Cup in November.

http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news...-1225940394267

this second time FIFA get such reports about Australia in this year and should now take action also AFC should kick Australia out of Asia and send them back to Oceania after their scandal with Tahiti member who is president of the Oceania Football.

in 28 october meeting they should cancel Australia bid since it is the only country don't have seat and try to buy votes by money and Jewelry.


and here some reports about the last time ....

June-July: Fifa investigates Australia's 2022 World Cup bid over bribes
