FWIW, the 'real' Aussie football fans, the Green & Gold Army ARE going to Qatar, but for them its always been about the football and supporting the Socceroos.
Well to hear that these so called "bogans" are not coming is delightful !! Thank go only people with brains are coming here.

I thought bogans were poor people, so I'm not sure how they firstly afforded tickets to south africa plus the hotels and food/alcohol. They certainly can't afford the prices of alcohol in Qatar, that's if they can get to the spots selling it. What' the going rate of alcohol in Qatar? 20 pounds or 50 dollars a bottle of beer or more :P Someone is clearly raking it in there.

no wonder in Qatar you need permits for alcohol and they pretty much make it difficult as possible to get alcohol

Meanwhile, FFA research obtained by The Sunday Mail has shown massive economic growth in Asia - and a boom in the number of televisions could see more viewers than ever before watching the 2022 tournament. "The potential broadcasting revenue generated by a FIFA World Cup in Australia will have the capacity to dwarf that of other regions, especially by 2022," FFA chief executive officer Ben Buckley said.

"FIFA's corporate partners will have access to the fastest growing economies in the world and the massive middle classes of China and India in what makes a very compelling argument to give the world's biggest sporting event to Australia." The PricewaterhouseCoopers research revealed that viewers lost in Europe and the Americas - where matches would be telecast at awkward times - would be more than offset by a massive jump in viewers from Asia.

In the report, PwC compared the only previous Asian Confederation World Cup, the 2002 tournament jointly held by Japan and South Korea, with the previous tournament in France in 1998. "In comparison to the 1998 World Cup, which was held in France, the reduction in European viewers (two billion) during this tournament was more than offset by gains of four billion viewers in Asia," the report said.

"Similarly, in 2006 the World Cup returned to Europe, resulting in an increase of one billion European viewers, which was offset by a decrease of three billion viewers in Asia. This demonstrates that the audience upside opportunity is greatest when the FIFA World Cup is held in Asia."

I have been saying this.An Australasian World Cup will absolutely smash existing FIFA broadcast numbers.
I believe an average of 1 billion is achievable=64 billion

Incredible legacy for FIFA's sponsors and future TV rights

Australia will be the first nation to make its final presentation to the FIFA executive committee before a host for the 2022 World Cup is announced. FIFA announced on Saturday Australia had been drawn to deliver its final 30-minute presentation first in Zurich on December 1 - the day before the final decision is announced.

Australia will be followed by fellow 2022 bidders Korea Republic, Qatar, the US and Japan, with each nation given a half hour to make a last presentation before the committee votes on who will host the tournament.Those nations bidding for the 2018 tournament will make their final presentations the following day in a process that FIFA has insisted will not be delayed by the scandals that have engulfed the bids over the past two weeks.

Football Federation Australia chief executive Ben Buckley is hoping first impressions will count when the bid team meets the committee."This is a great opportunity to make an excellent first up impression on the FIFA executive committee," Buckley said. "We have a fantastic argument for bringing the FIFA World Cup to Australia in 2022 and we will be showcasing our unique hosting concept in our presentation."

Let's hope there is some sort of population cap before then but yes the Australasian world cup bid has an amazing legacy for the game

An Australian football time line to 2022?

A successful bid is going to launch football into the front yard of Australia, like it or not. With the barrage of media coverage picking up momentum, the FFA would be crazy not to use the attention to launch a new era of the game. Football has one major advantage in Australia and that is the fact that it is the team sport with the highest participation rate in Australia.

December 2010

Australia is awarded the rights to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup as well as the 2021 Confederations Cup.

January/February 2011

Australia is awarded the rights to host the 2015 Asian Cup

Planning begins to ensure a timely completion of infrastructure and stadia to avoid a media assault like what South Africa experienced in the lead up to the 2010 world cup.

March 2011
FFA announces that 2011/2012 will be the first season in which the FFA Cup is contested. All state and local teams will be involved in a competition that is designed to involve all in the game. The competition will run from October to April and all rounds fixtures and home advantage will be randomly drawn except semi finals and finals. The winner of the Cup will be awarded with an ACL spot along with the A-League Champions and Premiers.

October 2011
West Sydney Rovers play their debut game in the now October starting A-League

January 2012
FFA and NZ Football announce plans for a new divisional system for the A-League, which will eventually feature promotion and relegation.

The top state league teams will join new (initially) FFA-backed regionally based teams, in what at first will be a single conference style division. WA, SA and VIC and TAS teams will play in Conference South-West while NT, ACT, NSW and QLD teams will play in Conference North-East with the overall division to be called the Australian National Division. (Sure not the most inspiring names but you get the picture).

This, initially large, division with potentially 20 teams in its inaugural year will be used to test the waters for the first potential teams to play in the new A2 league in the next season.

The criteria on promotion will not just be based on final positions but also with an added emphasise on long-term sustainability and financial stability due to the smaller budgets and expected crowds for lower divisions. The Australian National Championship will begin in October 2013 and will be significantly reduced the following year to allow the addition of 10 teams (as well as two promoted teams from the ASB Premiership in NZ) to the A2 League for its inaugural season in 2014 while adding two new state teams for the following season.

FFA release strategy to eventually shift the local and state league seasons to start and finish several months later to streamline the Australian football season in order to better facilitate this new system.

January 2015
Australia successfully hosts the 2015 Asian Cup with the Socceroos reaching the final to play local rivals Japan after facing tough games against China and North Korea. The significant media coverage in this time period increases national awareness of Australian football and A-League attendance post-cup skyrockets as the season draws to its finale.

October 2016
Following three seasons of the Australian National Championship and two seasons of the A2-League, the 2016/2017-football season begins with A-League teams now facing the very real threat of relegation for the first time in the competition’s 11-year existence.

January 2017
Major stadium construction and upgrades begin for World Cup and Confederations Cup host cities.

October 2020
Blacktown Stadium is officially opened with a season opener sell out between bitter rivals Sydney FC and West Sydney Rovers.

December 2020
Upgrades to existing stadia including Newcastle Stadium, Olympic Stadium, Carrara, Lang Park and SFS are completed as well as the construction of new stadia in Canberra, and Townsville. Perth Stadium, Skilled Stadium and the new Adelaide Oval are nearly finished and are expected to be opened at the 2021 Confederations Cup.

June 2021
Australia hosts 2021 FIFA Confederations Cup with Newcastle, Perth, Adelaide and Geelong hosting 16 matches between them.

Australia finishes a respectable 3rd after a epic encounter with Brazil in the semi final was only decided in the 92nd minute when Brazilian captain Alexandre Pato blasted a unstoppable 20 yard screamer past Australian star 33 year old keeper Mitchell Langeraak.

Australia then went on to beat African cup winners Côte d’Ivoire in the 3rd place play off.

June 2022
The World Cup the world would remember. Australian Government declares World Cup as a school holiday and the Australian game days as Public Holidays.

Australia’s road to embracing the game over the course of the decade is shown as the three weeks completely grip the nation.

100,000 people cram into the MCG on the final making it one of the highest attended world cup games ever. Australia shows it is capable of competing on the world stage and it’s strong performance on home soil allows it to become a serious contender for the 2026 FIFA World Cup in the US.

World Cup 2018: It's Either Australia or China as Hosts

With Brazil secure as the 2014 World Cup hosts, attention has shifted to the possible hosts of the 2018 edition. England, both the host and winners in 1966, had looked a reasonably sure bet for 2018. All that changed when Russia came in from the cold, with a strong interest. Funny enough, England made a shambolic attempt when it put forward a bid for the 2006 soccer jamboree that Germany won the rights to.

While there are others, especially China and Australia, in the running, those two have drawn the most attention lately. Russia's bid is, ironically, funded by Roman Abramovich. I wonder what Chelsea's English fans think about that!

The International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) has tended to select countries from different parts of the world as hosts. Korea-Japan in 2002 and South Africa in 2010 were examples of such bold forward-looking vision. The Russians have, therefore, a good chance. However, the recent bribery allegations against some FIFA members who received payments from the Russian Football Federation has muddied the waters.

Australia in 2000 and China in 2008 both hosted the best Olympics games of their time. With their star-studded reputations, they stand to benefit from any backlash against either Russia or England down the road. Their only significant issue would seem to be the broadcast time zone differences with FIFA's sponsor-rich areas of Western Europe and North America.

The choice for 2018 will be a surprise, if recent FIFA trends are anything to go by.
