so we won :cupgold

I really don't think people understand how big this tournament is. It'll be the biggest tournament Australia has hosted since the Sydney Olympics. Visitors to Australia will dwarf the Olympics. It’s a massive, massive event. And we can win the thing.

From a personal point of view, I'm gonna see about how I can get involved from a supporter side of things. It’s an opportunity too good to miss.


22-13. 9 of their votes were from EUFA. even England voted for them. :rolleyes:

Great news!!!

Regions tend to vote as blocks. Infantino probably voted for us as we had the better technical appraisals.

The final to be in Sydney at ANZ stadium. no surprise there. we just don't have the football infrastructure here in Melbourne. All of the host stadiums are proper rectangular stadiums and the MCG was never part of the bid. the FA didn’t bother to try after the events of the 2022 world cup bid. I don’t even think Melbourne will get a semi-final. I’m tipping Brisbane and Auckland to get those.

The Matildas are stinking it up recently, but it could have been much worse if the ESL had gone ahead. Players like Sam Kerr and others who play at the prospective ESL clubs like Chelsea, Arsenal, ManU and Liverpool would have been banned from the upcoming World Cup and Olympics.
