I'd be very surprised if the South American bid doesn't win 2030

Having 4-5 hosts is a bit crap if they all expect to qualify automatically. Not a vote winner

Sounds good, but surely it can't happen can it, as that would mean that all 5 "host" nations would need to be given automatic qualification

Aye 100 years since Uruguay hosted so they fancy their chances as joint hosts. Argentina was another?

Interesting thought - of the 5 nations reality is only England is capable of hosting the competition in itself. Would it not be an English bid with token games being played in Glasgow Cardiff Dublin and Belfast ? Rest would just be piggy backing on an English bid

Therefore only England should get a free pass 

Brexit border might create interesting issues for any travelling supporters trying to take food etc into Ireland

Must be a chance they’ll have it sorted by 2030. Even the EU bureaucracy could organise themselves by then.

Just imagine 5 thousand south Koreans bringing dog patê, fermented sea horse and other such delights into Dublin. A nightmare.

Then there would only be 11 other qualifying places for European nations, UEFA aren't voting for that and it's not really workable

Hopefully - needs to be a carefully worded bid by the "United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland "with a Caveat that if the Scots vote for independence in the meantime and are no longer part of the United Kingdom they are excluded , that should make them think twice

Wouldn't qualify if they had to, so that could well be an arm twister.

As much as it would be good for the 5 nations to host it there would be a better chance if England just went solo..... 

It would free up more qualification spaces in UEFA if we go it alone.....

But I think we're wasting our time, the 2030 world cup will go to the South American bid of Uruguay, Argentina, Chile & Paraguay....

Not because theirs is the best but rather that it'll be 100 years since the 1st world cup in Uruguay....

The government has backed plans to bid for the 2030 World Cup in a collaborative effort by all 4 UK countries together with Republic of Ireland. 

What do we reckon?

We could host it on our own. I'm not one for this sharing lark. But I reckon it makes a more attractive proposition if its shared across the Isles. Would this mean all 5 qualify automatically?

We have the stadiums and infrastructure without the other stadiums. 
Wembley, Emirates, Old Trafford, Etihad, White Hart Lane, Anfield 

All have good transport networks, all over 50k

Its not as if we need Hampden or Aviva to do it

Logistically one country makes more sence. And England is the perfect size.

But this co-hosting shit is something FIFA unofficially likes and encourages. Sharing the love, so to speak. Even though I don't like it a British Isles bid is far more attractive to the world than an England bid.
