I think Australia had 2 million visitors for the Olympic games but I know even during normal times, Australia has a lot of visitors for tourism. There are tonnes of people from Europe and Asia who come to Australia. Australia is supposedly ranked 8th in the world for tourism receipts.

Doha is better than Sydney. In fact its so much better that its capable of hosting most of the WC venues in one city!

Qatar is closer to Europe, 10 hours from London and 800 € for a double ticket, against 1600 € and many hours more.
So now it's the distance from Europe that worries you... I thought it was only the stadium renders? Didn't you originally say you wanted to see Australia host the World Cup? I call BS.

Actually this might be of interest as well:

http://fulltext.ausport.gov.au/fullt...tOfRWC2003.pdf

Report into 2003 Rugby world cup. A total of 60,000 visitors came.
31,000 came from Europe, 19,000 from Asia/NZ, 10,000 Africa and 3,000 Americas.

You look at hosts like Japan/Korea and South Africa and were they really any better off for visiting fans? Asustralia is more isolated geographically but neither of those two bids had strong markets closeby either.

I'm guessing there would be a very strong british presense there are least, not a massive amount of difference in flight time/cost and the country is a much more popular english speaking tourist destination anyway. I'd imagine the same would be true for alot of western european nations and S Korea/Japan aswell.

I don't think either Rubgy or the Olympics have near to the same traveling fan culture than football does.

It is estimated the Sydney Games generated up to $6.1 billion worth of international publicity for Australia and more than $6 billion in spending by an additional 1.6 million visitors in 2001.

The two numbers from the abs and dfat seem to tell two different stories on visitor numbers. Australia has around 6 million visitors a year just normally, which btw is around 20 times that of a certain nation's real population which does put things considerably into perspective here.

Yes, I'd like to see Australia host the World Cup because it's a new product than USA that hosted the WC in 1994 and Korea and Japan, both host countri in 2002 edition.

So we have Australia end Qatar, both interesting countries. My first choice would be Qatar, but I know is an impossible dream, so my ipoteti vote goes to Aussie.
