As is the case with South Africa this year and will be the case with Brazil in 2014, an Australia World Cup would have it played in the winter. What is the Australian winter like, not just in Sydney or Melbourne, but throughout the country where matches would be held if they earned the right to host?

Canberra: Cold. Nights frosty, occasional snow in the hills. Nothing like a Euro winter but definately bring your puffy jacket nightcralwers style.

Townsville: Dry season. Not super hot, not super humid, but still in the tropics so bring a sun hat.


Melb: Cold at night with possible frosts. Days generally not too cold but will need a jacket. No gloves unless its a fashiuon statement.

Brisbane/Gold Coast: "Mild" is the only accurate description. You wont be either hot or cold.

Everything else falls in between. There aren't really any temperature extremes, but I guess you could say Townsville is hot and and Canberra cold.

september would be better for the non disruption of the leagues because both the nrl and afl are either winding up their season or finished by the end of september so if those codes started 6-10 weeks earlier and the a-league 4 weeks later than there would be an objection free world cup time period

He means all of the soccer leagues around the world. September is not an option for a World Cup. It's June and July.

The World cup has to be played during the break of all the domestic leagues. If they played it in September it will totally disrupt pretty much every domestic football league in the world. This has nothing to do with the NRL or AFL.

Aussie summer could possibly be a bit too extreme for a WC anyways. Winter will be just fine.

Depends. Its probably a better time to visit the tropical part of Australia, or even most of Queensland and northern Western Australia. This part of Australia has probably the most to offer for an international tourist - Great Barrier Reef, Frasier and the Whitsunday Islands, Kakadu National park, the Kimberlys.

The Opera House and bridge look pretty much identical during summer and winter really, the only thing you would miss out on is the beaches in the south, which is kind of a shame because it would be nice to kick it on the sand between games, but theres plenty of beaches in Queensland so it dont really matter too much.

If the bid has anything like the level of bickering on this thread then the bid is in serious trouble!

Nope. You often see a Clausura/Apertura schedule with a August-December season and February-May season. The World Cup will be in June/July, no matter who hosts it and there's no way around it.

The J. League takes a break during the World Cup too, and from 2010 so will MLS. So that's the best time for it.

I'm not sure fifa will be monitoring forums as part of their assessment process.

I'd be more than happy for FIFA to jam their dictatorial requirements up their arse.

If worst comes to worst and the actual Australian domestic competitions are disrupted, I would hope the government comes to the party and hands out some nice little compensation packages. They seem more than happy to throw billions at the feet of the incompetent FFA and corrupt FIFA mobs.

would there be much opposition from the NRL and AFL for the disruption in their leagues? If there is it might hurt Australia's chances when FIFA could just go for countries like the USA who could easily accomodate the World Cup schedule.They would have to back down if Austrailia are to host.
