In terms of a title thread on this forum, we are quite restricted in the amount of words we can have there, hence the main reason why 'Home Nations' was used!! BTW for most of us that term does not include The Republic!

What do you mean most? It doesn't include 'the republic' at all because it can't. It is a fact. The term is really only used by English people, mainly media and British nationalists. A lovely mob.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Ahh in fairness we could do one group, it’s only 4 games now as each group only has 3 teams.
LR and some redeveloped/new stadium in Belfast.
I doubt Norn Iron could have 2 stadiums available so they would have to share it with the Rep.
Even if “Ireland” were given two groups, 8 games, you could have LR, Pairc Ui Chaoimh and Belfast.
Spread those matches over 7/8 days, no problem with hotel rooms etc.
Somehow doubt the Rep would be included though, I’d imagine Eng/Scot/Wal and maybe a token game or two in Belfast.

 
How did you get 4 matches in a group of 3?
 
Team A v Team B
Team A v Team C
Team B v Team C
 
 

By being crap at maths?

Unfortunately, we can't even get ITV on Virgin Media down here now!

Thats ok, I helped you out and changed the title that strangely fitted fine in amount of space available in the title.

Would it help you out if I had have included something like “who deem themselves to be Irish”? Anyhow, my apologies for the confusion, luckily though everybody else got it, including the original poster for whom it was intended.Thumbs Up

As said on a previous thread a few weeks ago.

England will likely bid for it and throw a few games towards Wales and Scotland.

And maybe will give Dublin a few group games.

Dublin could host a group game every 4 days. So could host up to 3 games.

Hah, so it seems they'd do it to throw the Nordies under the bus.

But seriously, 2030 is going to be in Uruguay and Argentina. 2034 is a more realistic target.

From a Stadium point of view. Us being part of the bid makes more sense than having the nordies
