I hope this bid is unsuccessful tbh. A glamour event to paper over all that is wrong with Irish football. A waste of money which should be invested in other areas of the game more in need.

Mark Tighe of The Sunday Times, who broke the Delaney scandal and authored Champagne Football, was on the Dunphy podcast last week. He mentioned that this was a big focus of Jonathan Hill. Hill (who still hasn't moved to Ireland almost 18 months into the job) seems to be prioritising this over other initives, and as you can imagine there are many who aren't impressed. Seems a bit of a vanity project to me.

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.
That would be my guess too. Might get 6 of the games in total if we're lucky.

It's a done deal lads. I read in an English paper the other week that if we pulled out of the world cup bid then 2028 would be given to us in return. Landowne will host 1 or 2 groups and a last 16.

It’s a quick and easy way to make a profit and get some much needed finances. Let the FA do all the groundwork and then reap the benefits if the bid is successful. 
The government won’t need to invest anything in the redevelopment or infrastructure for Lansdowne or Croke Park. The windfall can then go towards the grassroots and the LoI. 
Much easier way of reducing the debt and guaranteeing the future of the game than trying to selling 10 year corporate boxes for 32k a pop or asking the government for handouts.

why would we pull out of the 2030 World Cup bid? I would have liked to see that and have qualified for a World Cup automatically.

To be fair, if the tournament can be a profitable venture that allows the FAI to invest in facilities around the country then I'm all for it.

The games would only be played in Lansdowne, or maybe at a push Croker, so there's next to no capital investment needed here to host this. No doubt there will be shouts about trying to get games down to Cork, but that's a non-starter, the stadium there is nowhere near the standard needed, so it will just be Dublin. We'd probably get one group of 6 games and a second round game, maybe a quarter final as well.

If it generates income for the game here, what's the problem really?

Grassroots & the LOI need investment now...not in six years time.

because Uefa said if we pull out they'll give us the euros.

Dublin to showcase the opening game and to host 6 other matches, NI 4 matches, Scotland 7, Wales 4 and the rest including final in England. 


It follows advice from senior figures in football, including in Uefa, that a World Cup bid would be too risky... 

There has been firm encouragement from Uefa that a British and Irish bid for Euro 2028 would be well-received, especially as the governing body is expected to expand the tournament from 24 to 32 teams. All four home nations plus the Republic of Ireland would host matches with England having the majority including the final.

Italy had been considering a bid for Euro 2028 but is now expected to target Euro 2032 instead to give the country more time to build or redevelop stadiums.

Russia and Turkey have also been mentioned as potential bidders for Euro 2028 but Uefa would prefer to avoid a vote if possible.

It doesn't take a genius to work out what Uefa are saying

Not sure which stadium you're referencing here. Turners Cross would be a non starter for obvious reasons. Pairc Uí Chaoimh could potentially be a goer but it would require two things that won't get off the ground: A) GAA permission. B) UEFA signing off on the use of temporary 'bucket' seats.

7 games. Would presume that means all of a groups games are in Dublin then opposed to being split say between Dublin and (Potentially) Belfast. And then a last 16 game
