Australia's World Cup Soccer Bid

Updated on October 30, 2011

Australia's World Cup Soccer Bid for 2022. 

Australia’s track record in staging major international events is well documented. For instance the Sydney 2000 Olympics was described by Mr Samaranch the IOC President as" The Best Games Ever !" Are you getting as excited as me at the upcoming world cup in South Africa? Australian have there own Qantas plane decorated in all it;s livery colours to encourage the Socceroos to do well.

Okay I know this is supposed to be about South Africa and the World Cup but I want to talk about Australia Bid for the 2018 FiFa World Cup the outcome will be known this year.

The FIFA World Youth Cup (now known as the FIFA U-20 World Cup) has been hosted twice by Australia, in 1993 and 1981. In the past decade Australia has been host to the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the 2001 Goodwill Games (Brisbane), the 2003 Rugby World Cup, the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games and the 2009 World Masters Games (Sydney).

Major annual international sporting events include the Australian Open (the Grand Slam tennis tournament of the Asia-Pacific region), the Formula One Grand Prix and horseracing’s Melbourne Cup. In addition, nearly every week, the Australian sporting calendar includes blockbuster matches in a number of major sports. Staged at Australia’s premier venues, these fixtures regularly attract huge crowds of up to 100,000 people.

A safe and secure environment

The atmosphere at major sporting events in Australia is reflective of the friendly, relaxed people and their lifestyle. Australians enjoy a safe and secure environment, where law enforcement is effective, yet unobtrusive. Anti-social behaviour is virtually non-existent.

For players, officials, fans and all other participants, an Australian FIFA World Cup™ experience will be all about football.

Unequivocal support from all levels of government

Australia is a stable democratic society. Without exception, all capital works funding has been secured. The provision of key government services, including transportation, security, health, and customs and immigration services, have been committed.National, state and territory governments – and the major political parties – unequivocally support the Australian FIFA World Cup™ effort.

The world’s friendliest volunteers

The enduring volunteer culture in Australia, as highlighted by the 50,000+ workforce who set new international standards at the Sydney Olympics, will ensure the same enthusiastic involvement in an Australian FIFA World Cup™.

A safe pair of hands

Australia, with its stable and secure society, excellent infrastructure and undoubted expertise and experience in major event planning and operations, offers a wonderfully safe pair of hands for the hosting of a FIFA World Cup™.
