A look at the World Cup bid races


They may be almost a decade or more away, but the 2018 and 2022 World Cups have become the most important topics in the world of soccer this week.

More specifically, the subject of which nations will get to host those tournaments.

FIFA is set to vote on both tournaments, and which nations will get to host them, and while accusations of corruption and bribes is casting a shadow on the process, the fact remains we will find out in less than two days just who the lucky countries are.

For a primer on the World Cup bids, here are some stories to read:

Fox Soccer's rundown of all the bids for both 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

My Fox Soccer column on why the USA bid is the best for 2022.

A strong case for England's 2018 World Cup bid.

A FIFA-commissioned report on the World Cup bids called USA and England bids the strongest.

USA bid chief David Downs discusses the bid.


While most SBI readers are obviously in favor of USA winning the 2022 bid, my question for SBI readers is this. Which country would you like to see host the 2018 World Cup?

Cast your vote after the jump:


Where would I like to see the 2018 World Cup? I'd probably have to say England, though a Spain/Portugal World Cup could be memorable.

Which 2018 candidate did you choose? Do you think the USA bid will win the right to host the 2022 World Cup? Will you go to Australia or Qatar if one of them wins it?
