2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cup 12/2

Dec 01, 2010 @ 14:35
I would like to see Portugal/Spain get it for 2018 but it looks like England is in lock.

That leaves 2022 up in the air... USA USA USA USA!!!

fuck yo, w/o a doubt Mexico would've had 2022 on lock.

England were runaway favourites up until the summer, now (for a number of reasons) we look as if we're gonna come third with Russia getting it. I think England would be the best option considering the supposed problems people have getting visas to visit Russia and the fact that Portugal had the Euros in 2004 and Spain had a World Cup more recently than we did but I doubt we'll get it even though England seems like the most sensible option (good travel links, stadiums etc.).

I don't even want England to get it that much anymore, I looked at our promo vid and all I could see was "we can make you this much money and that much money".

I kinda want either Russia or the Netherlands/Belgium to get it.

I did want England to get it, but then I remembered that they will probably charge rape for tickets so it doesn't affect me where it's held.
Dec 01, 2010 @ 18:00
ticket prices for WC matches are rape no matter where it is

I still think England will take out 2018 and Australia needs to have the 2022 WC if FIFA truly wants the game to be global, the US had it not long ago and their immigration / visa laws make is a massive headache for certain teams like Iran to get access into the country.

Qatar anyone ? haha

that way i dont need to travel

I doubt that the US would score it, but even then, Houston's shot at hosting it is really slim, then again, H Town is big and there's a lot of handful of places to hit up, bars, etc. So, if the WC comes here, you're all welcome to crash at my place and party. I must say, Reliant stadium is huge, and perfect for games. I know one of the chefs that work there, so I'd probably end up working there if it came to town.

Looks like a massive stadium but only hold 72k people? Seems like a 100k people stadium from that pic.

US has a good shot, between them and us IMO since Qatar's heat will make things difficult and that they have to build everything from scratch. I'm still hoping we take it out since I work part time at a stadium here which will potentially host the final and can seat more than 100k people.

I hope Australia gets it, USA had '94..they wanted to do Africa so bad..then 18 & 22 should go to another new location as well.
Dec 02, 2010 @ 09:54
Russia and Qatar, I'm surprised seeing as Russia was rated a medium risk (I think) and Qatar was rated high risk by the FIFA investigating team. Weird...
Dec 02, 2010 @ 09:59
It was pretty obvious that both Qatar and Russia were gonna win...

and whether it was held here or not I still probably would have watched it on TV.
So meh, makes no difference.
Dec 02, 2010 @ 09:59
HB fam, hope to see some of ya'll in 2022 blushing
Dec 02, 2010 @ 10:25
I wasn't surprised by Russia but Qatar really surprised, considering their biggest city is just under a million people and their second biggest city is around 450 000. I really thought Australia was going to land this, considering they have the facilities and are a proven country to host big, international events.

Edit: The population information came from wikipedia, just in case if the info is wrong.

Qatar anyone ? haha

lol you laughed then but what now?
Dec 02, 2010 @ 10:58
Didnt expect to win at all tbh. people here are going crazy !

edit: pretty much all the 450,000 in the 2nd biggest city are workers/labourers.
Dec 02, 2010 @ 11:31
I just don't understand how a country of 1.7 million people can host and invite over 3 million tourists for a month in a 20 mile radius.
Dec 02, 2010 @ 12:15
2022 is gonna officially be the worst world cup ever lmao.

Round 1: England 2 votes, Netherlands/Belgium 4 votes, Spain/Portugal 7 votes and Russia 9 votes.

And this is absolute bullshit, how we got only 2 votes amazes me.

Not to mention the 2 mystery voters that changed their mind from Netherlands/Belgium to Russia in the second round.

Round 2: Netherlands/Belgium 2 votes, Spain/Portugal 7 votes and Russia 12 votes (Russia obtain absolute majority)
Dec 02, 2010 @ 12:40

Are you serious about a piece of shit country hosting the 2022 WC... LOLZZZZZ

I'm ok with Russia hosting 2018.

FIFA is all about the money,why else would fucking Qatar be hosting a World Cup?A country half the size of Birmingham,with just one International Airport.Drinking in public is illegal.Good job FIFA.
Dec 02, 2010 @ 12:56
Yeah it's a fucking joke, seriously.

Terrible decision by FIFA on WC 2022.

Makes no sense except for the money to have it in Qatar, they're building everything from scratch also. We def deserved this but to have just 1 vote and get knocked out in the first round, seems very su♥♥♥♥ious. I'd have preferred the US to take it from Qatar, even Japan would have been sick but for such a small country that hits such high temperatures during summer, seems like some dodgey shit went down.

LOL were people booing in the room when they announced the decision?
Dec 02, 2010 @ 13:58
tehres only like one brewing company in qatar.. im hearing they dont import shit... gg
Dec 02, 2010 @ 14:44
Apparently all the stadiums are gonna be within 60km radius, fucking ridiculous. God knows what they're gonna do with them after the tournament, massive wast of money if you ask me. And also where are they gonna find enough room for 3 million fans to stay when the country's whole population is roughly half that?
Dec 02, 2010 @ 14:53
Lot of valid points said like the temperature, size of country and population but in the end it all comes down to money. But with a GDP of more than $75,000 and plenty of gas reserves, money is the last thing these guys are worried about.
Dec 02, 2010 @ 14:56
The stadiums are being taken apart from sent around the world, I think two are going to Africa and Qatar will pay for everything including them being remade - that would have def secured them a couple of votes.

I was looking forward to 2022 being in Australia, Japan or the US, would have def gone to the US and Japan but I can't see myself going to Qatar when you can't drink in public. I think this decision has set back football here for a long time again.


lol massive turn out for the decision:
