We're proposing to host it along with NI, Scotland, Wales and England. World Cup 2030 bid officially withdrawn.

Not clear whether that would mean automatic qualification but, as it is likely to be a 32 team tournament by then, automatic qualification might not be that big a benefit anyway compared to previously.

North would be hosting training bases rather than games according to an article last week

Would be ironic if the using the GAA facilities was the only way NI could host games. 

GSTQ blaring out at Casement though - surely not going to happen.

I couldn't see them hosting any games.

What is the obsession with hosting tournaments? Everyone's involvement is to sugar coat the fact that it's really just an English bid. Nice to see some things in the FAI don't change Confused

Put money into grassroots and LOI yiz dopes.

I would hope that this would be a cash generator and push government investment. It would have its own separate additional budget and would not touch existing human resource availability. Also it might kick start investment into the LOI and the youth structures.

However my nightmare scenario is that this eats into already scarce resources, either cash wise or peoples time, that should be focused on our structures, academies and the LOI.

This could be a great thing in bringing football in this country to a different level or it could be a disaster if it causes any reduction in our current resources. We are a good country at hosting events so I am currently 51-49 in favour of this but .............. lots more detail needed.


It's not me it's you:-)

If the bid is successful, I hope and pray that there is no measles outbreak or we would be the only host nation instructed to withdraw again from hosting games...

Lol.

I wouldn’t for a second rule put us supplying a single venue which will host 5/6 matches. I fully expect it to be England led.

No one in UEFA wants to give England anything. This is doomed to failure.

Depends on what it is up against. England can easily do it on their own but the UK government investing in an English only bid, I guess the politicians in Wales, Scotland and the North don't look too kindly on that and why they want to include the others officially. Then if you having it on both islands, might as throw us in as well. That must be the thinking behind it.

If we come up against a Russia or Italy, then maybe we could be screwed as a bid. But if the opposition is a Balkan bid, Romania, Greece, Bulgaria,  Scandinavian or Turkey, then I think the bid would have a good chance to win.

Probably some serious FOMO after the Dublin's Euro 2020 games were moved to St Petersburg.

Competition will come from Turkey and Italy bids you'd imagine.

Turkey have bid for the last 5, i suppose UEFA might consider them this time around.

Italians also expressed interest, would be hilarious if they pipped the English to both the Euros title and hosting rights LOL

Turkey won't get it. Sure they came up with the multi host format just to avoid giving it to them as no other single country was willing to bid at the time. LOL
