 2022 AUSTRALIA WORLD CUP BID

The below information is from Australia's unsuccessful bid for the 2020 FIFA World Cup

The proposed stadiums were selected following a comprehensive, in-depth national infrastructure study, undertaken by industry experts who assessed each stadium against the current FIFA criteria.

12 FIFA-compliant stadiums are proposed, of which nine are currently operational and require modifications, while three will be new, state-of-the-art, purpose-built stadiums. All existing stadiums are proven venues for football, and have been the stage for remarkable events in Australia’s sporting history.

The distribution of stadiums across Australia will deliver a truly national FIFA World Cup™ experience, and ensure the FIFA World Cup™ galvanises the whole country in the lead up to and throughout the competitions. Ease of access to the precincts will be further enhanced through the use of designated transport routes, and through tried and tested public transport networks to and from the stadiums.
