The FIFA World Cup™ is the greatest show on earth, and a FIFA World Cup™ in Australia would be the World Cup the world wants to have: fun, relaxed, safe, secure.

Why?

• It would be on the doorstep of the region which is growing faster than any other place in the world – Asia. It is football’s new frontier, and Australia offers certainty, a safe pair of hands and a bridge between Asia and Oceania. As the largest island continent in the world, a FIFA World Cup™ in Australia would also be a FIFA World Cup™ for three continents.

Australia also has an outstanding record in hosting marquee events. Everything we’ve done beforehand – the FIFA World Youth Cup, Olympics, Commonwealth Games, Cricket and Rugby World Cups, World Expo and others – have all been ‘dress rehearsals’ for the big one: the FIFA World Cup™.

• We have outstanding sports infrastructure and stadia that have hosted many international events accommodating up to 100,000 people and we have well-developed, safe, modern transport systems.

Australia is a unique place to visit. It’s the world’s greatest playground – with modern cities, the outback, World Heritage regions, the alps, beautiful beaches, rainforests and the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef.

Australia is home to the guardians of one of the world’s oldest continuing cultures as well as a diverse community of people from all over the world. A FIFA World Cup™ in Australia would be like a home game for everyone.

• And with two consecutive appearances in the FIFA World Cup™, Australia is building a passion for football.

A FIFA World Cup™ in Australia would be a true celebration of everything football stands for, and a gift from Australia to the world.

Come Play! in Australia in 2018 or 2022.
