You'd have thought that but a Moroccan / North African bid is now favorites according to sources on Twitter and it wouldn't surprise me in the least if they 'won' it.

There's no way I can see Casement Park being a goer here, even if its built in time. With the tournament likely increasing to 32 teams, NI will probably qualify and thus have to play all their games in West Belfast, in a GAA stadium! With all the baggage and the symbolism that goes with that, including the playing of GSTQ, I cant imagine many in the Ulster GAA who would be too keen to see that happen.

It is a delish irony that The Orange Football Team need to go cap in hand to The GAA though

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?

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.



Yeah, I meant Pairc UI Chaiomh. It only has around 20,000 permanent seats in the two stands running down the sides of the pitch. The rest is huge terraced areas so it wouldn't be suitable for international football qualifiers, never mind a major tournament finals.

Interesting to see reports of a few games in the north. 30,000 is usually the minimum capacity for tournament finals so would be interesting to see how they're going to work that one.

The Times article says there's 3 options. An upgraded Windsor, casement or a brand new stadium. Unlikely to be casement or a new stadium.

Would a 30k Windsor be viable long term (with all due respect )though unless it's tempoary addition like some stadiums did previously. Think Charleroi reduced after the Euros

And Windsor has only recently been upgraded. I'd guess they'll end up not hosting any games.

They'll throw Morocco in with Spain and Portugal as a 3 country bid.

Still think the South American bid will get it on account of it being the centenary WC

Yep. One of the articles last week suggested it would be more likely they'd host a number of training bases instead

Pure guess work from The Times nothing official. Southampton's ground or Brighton's I'd have thought would be ahead of it unless it's geographical reasons

Apparently they can’t get the government money to upgrade their stadiums

don’t love the stadiums that they’re using for the UK part, would have been nice to see them spread it across England a bit more than 2 London, 2 Manchester, 2 Merseyside, etc.

I think it's exciting enough. Would be good to have eyes from around the world on the country for the opening ceremony and likely if we qualify we would be in the opening match (if that report is true).

However, it would be good to see how much money the FAI / government need to bring to the table and what the return would there be and most important, what is the plan on creating a legacy out of any profit, for example, investing in the upgrading of LOI grounds around the country.

I believe they've a redevelopment plan for the ground. Although it's a long time in the making!
