    FIFA WORLD CUP 2018 - RUSSIA




    I know that its early, let's start to road to the World Cup 2018 in the land of strong people..

    The 2018 FIFA World Cup will be the 21st FIFA World Cup, an international men's football tournament, that is scheduled to take place between 14 June and 15 July 2018 in Russia.

    This will be the first World Cup held in the area of the former Soviet Union and the first since 2006 to be held in Europe.

    The finals tournament will involve 32 national teams, including that of the host nation, assuming the current format of the finals is maintained. The final is expected to take place in Moscow at the Luzhniki Stadium.




    Russian cities & venues for 2018 World Cup:

    I find it sad to see if Russia would be taken it off. It is just three years till it starts, I am sure they are more than ready for it. Also since it was bribing used for the selections of 2014, 2010, 2006 and 1998 World Cup, then I think that Russia and Qatar can stay. Better to work for a better tomorrow than to change the past or present.

    Well, if they didn't want it taken off them, they shouldn't have bribed and broken the rules (if indeed they have). Nothing can be done about World Cup's that have already been, but something can be done about World Cup's yet to come. There are plenty of countries that play fairly by the rules that would be able to organise the competition with just three year's notice - England being one of them (our bid was going to use stadia already constructed). I'm glad the government has put our name forward if indeed the World Cup is taken off Russia and Qatar.

    I still find it ridiculous to change these world cup since it is actually already chosen and the countries are prepared for it (especially Russia, and Qatar has problably already started building the arenas). This is just turning out to continue the hate-campaign for both Russia and the muslim countries. I am sure that if someone would notice that Germany bribed some FIFA-delegates for 2006 (which I am sure they did as well, ALL hosts has at least bribed one or two delegates, even Sweden back in the 50s) then it would not even be a discussion about it, cause it is the trust-worthy germans that did it. If now it happens that it will be removed from these countries, let it be so then, but on an international level it will just get worse. But if it wouldn't, I don't wanna see any boycotts from EU, so that our great players from european countries, who has had a dream of competing and even winning in the World Cup, never get to follow the dream since it is all about politics. That would be a disgrace and something to be ashamed of for Europe.

    Re: FIFA WORLD CUP 2018 - RUSSIA

    Qatar should be stripped of their World Cup because having it there is bordering on the insane for a long list of reasons, but Russia can actually handle a WC properly and moving it elsewhere at this point would be problematic. Taking it away from Qatar, on the other hand, would not only be very good for the event itself, but would prevent the death toll for the event to rise from the already terrible numbers.

    It's my understanding that Germany out-bribed South Africa for 2006 whereas South Africa out-bribed Morocco for 2010 - while I have no doubt Russia also did it, it may not be a good idea to change things now. Qatar 2022 should definitely be relocated, though - I'd expect one of USA/Australia/UK to handle it and handle it well.

    If the FIFA decides to take off Qatar I'd hope for Australia as the replace.
    After giving the WC to USA, East Asia, to South Africa it's just consequent that Australia finally becomes the host. As far as I know Australias bid was very well, it's a wealthy country with pretty good infrastructure in which the football has developed through the years (thinking on the great generation 2006 with players like Cahill). They could organize an event like this without problems. Of course for Europeans the kick-off times are very bad but tbh they deserve to get the world cup

    Re: FIFA WORLD CUP 2018 - RUSSIA

    I doubt highly that will be stripped them from hosting World Cup in 2018, even if they found guilty to committing of bought votes during the vote in 2010, because for FIFA will not be time to assign another European country (like England or Germany for example) to organize the championship in haste when mostly of their stadiums needs be remodeled with time, and apart of that i doubt highly that the Russians will accept that the 2018 cup will be removed from their country due corruption, and probably they will start a legal battle or sue the FIFA for compensation (which will be very high).

    Re: FIFA WORLD CUP 2018 - RUSSIA

    Could you guys explain the "obvious" reasons as to why a World Cup in Qatar would not be okay? The only reason I thought of would be the extremely high temperatures, but on the other hand... isn't Qatar an arid country, so it wouldn't be much of a problem anyway?

    Re: FIFA WORLD CUP 2018 - RUSSIA

    On 25th July the draw of the groups of European qualification for the WC 2018 will be held.

    The pot allocation is based on the FIFA World ranking

    Pot 1


    Pot 2


    Pot 3


    Pot 4


    Pot 5


    Pot 6


    As we know the FIFA World Ranking is far away from being perfect, so there are some strange outcomes
    Romania & Wales (!) in Pot 1, two big teams & in Pot 2 (just like )
    I am also pretty surprised that Faroe Islands reached Pot 4, actually that is a damn huge success, however I have no idea how they made it They can say thank you to Greece I guess

    Maybe I will do my own just-for-fun draw in the next days
