As for 2026 is gonna be asia or australia, and 2030 im sure is gonna be in uruguay for the 100 yr anniversary..


Qatar 2022 means that somewhere other than Asia gets the next cup, and if Uruguay is going to get the centennial, Concacaf is due to get 2026 and the US is the obvious choice (if FIFA still likes to make money)

Qatar is a terrible place for a wc but $ talks... Their gonna end up having it in the summer with ac stadiums... The only problem is people tailgating outside before the game... I bet theres gonna be a lot of heat related problems... As for 2026 is gonna be asia or australia, and 2030 im sure is gonna be in uruguay for the 100 yr anniversary..


As 2tone remembered and I totally forgot- 2030 cant be in UEFA or AFC countries. As FIFA changed rules stating you must wait until after two other confeds got to host. That pretty much means UEFA will get the world cup every 12 years now. (2018, 2030, 2042). My guess is that FIFA will try to balance Americas with Asia/Africa in the other two so my revised guess is US or Mexico in 2026, Australia or China 2034 (After Qatar the last remaining markets they havent tapped with developing leagues) USA in 2038, if USA gets 2026 then Uruguay or Argentina.
Unless Platini, the presumable future FIFA president changes things drastically FIFA has shown that they dont like to go anywhere near previous world cups since 02. (Japan/SK, Italy, South Africa, Brazil, Russia, Qatar) so I dont see them going to Uruguay 12 years after Brazil. Same reason why I'd expect a western european country to get 2030. Worst Case for the US is Mexico gets 2026 and He goes to Northern Africa instead of Americas in 2038. Then we are out until 2044 or 2048. And thats enough baseless far fetched predictions as Im ready to make today. That was fun

In 2026 is favourite for host WC. Qatar bought 2022 when US was favourite, but in 2026 WC will be in America. Remember that 1994 WC was one of the best for FIFA and at that time US not even had a Pro League. 1994 is still the highest average of attendance per match and the highest attendance for a tournament.

This was inevitable but now it's official. Six countries (Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Mauritania, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt) have now demanded that FIFA strip Qatar of the 2022 World Cup.

Lol at Saudi wahhabis calling other people terrorist supporters.

How about we have some conditions for countries getting World Cup such as, if in your country it is illegal to be gay, well then you can't have a world cup because there will be gay soccer players on teams.

Flashback: "The Fifa president Sepp Blatter, who refused to comment on the issue at the IOC session in Buenos Aires, sparked an outcry in 2011 when he said gay people should "refrain from sexual activity" during the 2022 World Cup."

Supposedly this is "fake news", as some guy in some other country I don't currently live in calls it. http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/40626063
