Remember when the Laureate, fresh off earning his 1st Nobel, lobbied FIFA for the WC early in his 1st term?

Yes, the US came in 4th out of four candidates, and Russia won.

1994 was brilliant, a fucking blast, and a great GREAT Time was had by all (not Colombia/Escobar). The only possible legitimate complaint was that beer sales were limited to two venues (Chicago and DC). I saw Netherlands vs Saudi Arabia at RFK Memorial Stadium drunk as can be sitting to next to some besheeted Saudi fuck who was not amused. "Praise Allah," I said. Hilarity ensued.

Ridiculous

Mexico will now have held it at least three times since England held it last.

And why?

Because English newspapers were the ones telling how corrupt and stinky the whole organisation is.

Saying that, a million miles better an option than Qatar.

England didn't get the 2006 World Cup because of the English soccer hooligans at 2000 Euros.
England didn't get the 2018 World Cup because of FIFA corruption and graft from Putin.

2006 was a corrupt process and is currently under investigation by a FIFA ethics committee (lol)

South Africa should have won it.

England didn't deserve it as they reneged on a Gentleman's agreement after Germany supported England's bid for the 1996 Euros.

In any case, regardless of hooliganism at 2000, 1996 showed that a major tournament could beheld in England without any significant crown trouble (minor scuffles between England and Scotland aside).

Germany have apparently already showed preemptive support for a suggested England bid in 2030.

We will see.


In any case, USA/Canada sounds like a good holiday to me!

England didn't qualify in 1994.

I've been to the USA 5 times.

If I am still around in 12 years time, I might go to the WC.

If England qualify.

Here are the vote totals. France voted Morocco, of course. More surprising was Taiwan and our best buddies in Albania. And Slovenia and Spain abstained along with those lovelies of Iran and Cuba.

IMO football WC should be held in countries where football is top. Not the case of USA and Canada and why they give the WC to Mexico all the time?
England, Italy, Germany, Spain, Holland together with Belgium, France, Argentina, Uruguay, Brasil are the best.
Turkey might not play the best football but people are crazy about it as well as in Morocco and many other countries.
They would not held a Rugby WC in Germany.
Prost!

The 1994 WC is still the tops for money generated, even though there were only 24 teams playing in the US.

So yeah, if the corrupt FIFA goons are interested in money (real money, not bribe money), they would hold it in the US every four years. But they're not. They're interested in bribe money.

What a fcuking joke.

Despite being given the easiest route to the finals the US fuck it up so FIFA give then them the next best thing which is the finals including guaranteed qualification. in Just shows how money has corrupted the game. Do Canada get an automatic spot in finals as co hosts?

Good point.

Does this mean all three countries get a free bye to the tournament?

In this instance, it would be ludicrous if they didn't.

I assume CONCAF will therefore be limited to maybe only one qualifying team.

From early readings, it seems 2030 will maybe a shoot out between three unified bids:

Argentina-Paraguay-Uruguay

Morocco-Algeria-Tunisia

England-Wales-Scotland (or just England)

Wales and Scotland have 5 stadia between 50,000 to 80,000 capacity

I would say a unified bid with England is credible.

Plus, they plan to make the tournament 48 teams


Shame, they can't include Dublin.

Bloody ridiculous. Look at how shite Saudi Arabia were, and then throw in another 16 on top of that who'll be worse.

I can't see England hosting again without adding Scotchland and Wales too.

How does it work with the host country getting a pass in (not having to qualify) when there are three host countries?

Japan and South Korea got automatic qualification in 2002. Looks like all 3 will get in for 2026. CONCACAF qualifying spots might have been reduced because of that, but with the field expanding from 32 to 48, probably won't be a problem.
