Thread: Scotland 2026?
03-12-2010, 01:37 PM #1
We're all gutted that England did not get the 2018 World Cup & we've been told that we cannot go for another until AFTER 2030!
So, what about Scotland for 2026 then? Scotland have never hosted it, the SPL could do with a lift so there would be a legacy card to play AND they have the passion for the game & we'd all get up there easily from England & Wales.
Just a thought

I've been hearing that China is going to make a strong push for 2026. Knowing how corrupt FIFA is and is becoming everyday China would be perfect for them. Also, i'm seeing a lot of buzz for Uruguay 2030. The 100 year Aniversery of the World Cup. I know Uruguay is a rather small country but I wouldn't be completely against this. Maybe they can share the matches with surrounding countries simliar to Korea, I think Argentina is already on board.

I'd like it if England and Scotland could joint host the 100 year anniversary world cup, in 2030 I think.
Considering that these two countries started the game and all.
Oh right...new markets and uh...bringing cultures together? And erm...mending the world's divides and conflicts through football. Forgot about that.

China has 2026 in the bag. 2030 is the next open slot and who knows what will happen then since all the big hitters will bid.

First of all the reason we can't host it to 2030 is that the World Cup cannot be played on the same continent if that continent has held one of the last two World Cups. Therefore no European country can hold the World Cup until 2030. Russia qualifies as being on the European continent.
Anyway it won't happen because Scotland would be too small. It would need to be a joint bid. Really I think the entire UK should submit a bid.

Snarky remark that isn't meant to be snarky: does the vote even matter?

There's still one continent that hasn't hosted it! Perhaps Antarctica for 2026 is a realistic possibility. A new frontier for football and, if the temperature won't be a problem in Qatar, why should it be in Antarctica????

i'm not sure China would get given it by Fifa. Considering they have to give visas to everyone regardless i could see that getting exploited by protestors and legal loopholes for some tibet protestors banned from the country or something, so they might not even want that. China's an even stranger country than Russia and Qatar and that could be a step too far even for Fifa.
