If Australia wins and the TV revenue issue becomes more of an issue, any other leagues during the WC will simply have to be postponed.

Even if the TV revenues are fine, there is no point in getting your hopes up for other sports events during the WC.

Ben Buckley is on the Marketing and Television Advisory Board and has consistently said that ratings/broadcast agreements in Nth America will be more than offset by the booming growth in the middle classes of Asia

Got to remember that an Australian World Cup will go live in primetime and daytime to 86.5 % of the World
That is an unbelievable chance for FIFA,a licence to print money for the future of football

Seems both Australia's main rivals will play WC's in 50 degree heat

Qatar hit back at US
Rival bidders clash over heat debate

Qatar hit back at US

Bin Hammam: Not happy
SKY SPORTS ON SKY



Fifa executive committee members from Qatar and USA have clashed ahead of the World Cup vote next month.

Qatar and USA are among the nations bidding for the 2022 World Cup finals, which will be decided on 2nd December.

The latest row engulfing the process, which has been dogged by controversy, has seen Fifa member Chuck Blazer from the United States suggest that Qatar was too hot to host the finals.

"You can air-condition a stadium, but I don't see how you can air-condition an entire country," Blazer is quoted as saying.

Angered by Blazer's comments , Mohamed Bin Hammam, the Qatari head of the Asian Football Confederation and a Fifa executive committee member, suggested that the US bid was in no position to condemn anyone.
Challenges

"When my counterpart asked me about my response to the news that my country's bid was once more criticised due to Qatar's hot weather and the danger it may contribute toward players' and officials' health, I reminded him of two things," Bin Hammam wrote on his own blog.

"One: the technological developments and solutions that Qatar would apply to its stadiums in order to overcome the challenges of the heat.

"Two: whether or not he remembers the 1994 World Cup in the United States, where some of the matches were played at midday in temperatures as high as 50 degrees Celsius.

"When he told me that he remembers, I asked him whether or not anyone had criticised the US for putting the players' and officials' health in danger.

"On the contrary, even the American fans forgot about the heat, and, yet, applied for another World Cup posting in less than 16 years from the time they last hosted."



Australia's average temperature in the 10 host cities at World Cup time-19 degrees

Asia was once again the region to contribute the highest share of television audience with its 8.28 billion in-home viewers accounting for 32.2% of the global total. However, the total cumulative audience fell by 25.7 percent in 2006. This decline in viewer numbers is not surprising when viewed in the correct context. The 2002 event was staged in two Asian territories (Japan and South Korea) and kick-off times for live matches were consequently during prime viewing hours across most of the region whereas live matches in 2006 were shown mostly after midnight. Secondly, China - which accounts for approximately one-fifth of the total global audience - qualified for the finals for a historic first time in 2002 but failed to qualify in 2006. These circumstances explain the nine percent fall in the global cumulative audience in 2006.

* Asia contributed the highest share of the overall cumulative television audience, 8.28 billion in-home viewers, 34.2% of the global total.

* The highest single audience was recorded in China at 71.5 million viewers, for the group match between Japan and Croatia.

Uruguay has an undeniable,absolutely amazing football history-I know that only too well-I go to Melbourne Victory matches with a Uruguayan.He certainly doesn't harp on about it,to the contrary infact.But being a student of football history I know Uruguay won every major international competition they entered from 1924-1954-a record that will NEVER be broken.
By the same token,I find your trolling totally unnecessary and will remind you of your pain in 2005 EVERY time you persist

Australia’s home of football, SBS, will broadcast LIVE the announcement of the host nations for the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cups at 1.55am on Friday, December 3, on SBS ONE and online at www.sbs.com.au/theworldgame.

The highly-anticipated announcement will reveal whether Australia has been successful in its bid to host the 2022 World Cup.

Hosts Craig Foster and David Basheer will be joined by Les Murray live from FIFA’s head office in Zurich. They will also be joined by Tim Harcourt, chief economist at Austrade, who will discuss the economic impacts of the outcome for Australia.

Murray will host SBS’s broadcast live from Zurich, where FIFA president Sepp Blatter will announce the host nations as decided by the FIFA executive committee.

Australia faces competition from Japan, Qatar, Korea Republic and the USA in its bid to stage the world’s biggest sporting spectacle in 2022.

England, Russia and joint bidders Spain/Portugal and Netherlands/Belgium are all in the running to host the 2018 World Cup.

“When the moment comes, millions of Australians will wait with baited breath for a decision that could change the nation,” SBS chief football analyst Foster said.

“If you remember Sydney 2000 fondly, that's nothing compared to the passion and exhilaration of the world's greatest sporting tournament.

"The thought of 32 nations and the entire cultural festival that goes with a World Cup being here, at home, is almost too much to contemplate. We wait and hope."

Please remind me what the strength of Uruguayan football has to do with Australia's World Cup bid? I seem to be missing the relevance...
