Nervige Bundesligaunterbrechung

  • Wundert mich auch nicht. Bei Olympia werden doch auch alle Athleten von einem Anbieter einheitlich ausgestattet. Klar, dass die Fußballer da keine Ausnahme bilden. So grausig es auch aussieht.

    Saudi Arabia is considering a joint bid for the 2030 World Cup, with new European champions Italy understood to be top of their list of potential partners.

    Once frowned upon by world football’s governing body FIFA, joint bids are now encouraged as they reduce the financial burden of hosting the event, especially as it is growing to 48 teams and 80 games from 2026, when the tournament will be staged in Canada, Mexico and United States.

    US-based global consultancy firm Boston Consultancy Group is understood to be advising Saudi Arabia on its potential bid and it is suggesting the oil-rich state make the broadest possible coalition.

    One suggestion is the Saudis team up with Egypt and Morocco to make a “MENA bid” (Middle East and North Africa), which would theoretically unite the African and Asian football confederations.

    While that bid makes geographic sense, it would need Egypt and Morocco to make huge infrastructure improvements and there would be concerns about the commercial success of the tournament, the impact on the countries’ economies and security issues.

    So, a European partner would be a safer option and several sources have told The Athletic that Italy is the most likely candidate, which would mean the Italians taking on the English once more for the big prize, as the four British home nations are considering a united bid with the Republic of Ireland.

    On Thursday, the president of the Italian football federation, Gabriele Gravina, told a news conference that Italy “will evaluate an Italian candidacy for the 2028 European Championship and the World Cup of 2030, in which the centenary of the world championship is celebrated”.

    Italy has hosted four major football tournaments over the last 87 years but it has not spent much money on its stadiums since it hosted the 1990 World Cup, which is where Saudi investment could help.

    The two countries already enjoy close business, diplomatic and sporting relations. For example, next January, Saudi Arabia will host the Italian Super Cup — the annual game between the previous season’s league and cup winners — having already staged two previous editions.

    It is also understood that the much-anticipated Saudi alternative to beIN Sports, the Qatari-based pay-TV giant that dominates the MENA region, is about to launch, with Serie A’s rights being its first big-ticket item.

    Saudi Arabia has been pouring money into sports and tourism projects in recent years in an attempt to diversify its economy and boost its reputation on the global stage — it has already attracted events such as Anthony Joshua’s heavyweight title rematch against Andy Ruiz, the Dakar Rally and this year’s inaugural Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, as well as international golf and tennis competitions.

    Hosting the World Cup, though, would be the ultimate prize for a football-mad country, particularly after its far smaller neighbour and regional rival Qatar has staged the 2022 edition.

    Saudi Arabia has become increasingly active within the football industry in the two years, from its sovereign wealth fund’s high-profile attempt to buy Newcastle United last year, to its recent support for FIFA president Gianni Infantino’s idea of staging the World Cup every second year, not every fourth.

    Saudi money is also believed to have been behind two of Infantino’s earlier brain waves: an expanded Club World Cup and a global Nations League. The latter has been quietly shelved but the former has received FIFA backing, although it has not nailed down a place in the calendar yet. It has even been suggested that Saudi money was underpinning the short-lived European Super League though there is no evidence of that.

    What all this activity demonstrates is that sport is central to Saudi Arabia’s vision for its future, and football is its favourite sport. Saudi involvement in a World Cup bid, though, would provoke considerable controversy.

  • 2030 dürften wohl Europa oder Asien wieder an der Reihe sein, nachdem man 2026 ja schon in Kanada, USA und Mexico ist. Allein diese 3er Konstellation ist schon unter aller Sau, kann doch jedes Land locker ne eigene WM austragen. Und hat das im Falle von Mexico ja schon 2x.


    Australien dürfte 2030 wohl weit oben auf der Liste stehen. Aus Europa dürften England und Italien auch auch mal wieder dran sein, wobei es bei Italien durchaus am Geld scheitern könnte.

    Its entry into the 2030 race, therefore, will only add to the British and Irish bid’s headaches, after what has been a disastrous week for its prospects.

    Everyone associated with the bid knows it will have no chance unless it runs an almost perfect campaign — the shocking scenes before Euro 2020’s final at Wembley on Sunday have used up all of the bid’s lives before FIFA has even officially fired the gun on the race, which is not expected until next spring.

    By that time, however, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin wants all 55 member associations in Europe to be united behind one bid and he is understood to be leaning towards the Iberian bid proposed by Spain and Portugal.

    There are several reasons for this and many of them have not changed since the last time Englandbid for a World Cup in 2010. That ended in embarrassing failure, with many English football administrators and politicians saying “never again”.

    The Football Association, however, has never given up hope of hosting the tournament for a second time and believes the reforms FIFA has made after that contentious vote for the 2018 and 2022 hosts give a bid that involves England a fighting chance. And that seems to be all prime minster Boris Johnson, an eternal optimist, thinks England needs.

    ....in Zeiten von steigender Kosten(sprich mehr Teilnehmer ) ist die Verteilung über mehr Schultern nachvollziehbar.

  • Also bei aller Liebe, aber wenn ein Land wie die USA nicht in der Lage ist, sich allein zu bewerben, dann soll man es lassen. Dann stimmt irgendwas nicht. Das macht bei kleineren Nationen Sinn, wo es gar nicht so viele Stadien gibt, aber nicht in einem Land wie Murica.

    Wollten es eigentlich alleine. Aber offenbar kann die Forderungen der Fifa ein einzelnes Land nicht mehr erfüllen. Das können wohl nur noch die Scheichs.
