If we can't get the FA to vote for Britain's colonial antipodes then we're proper f’ed.
it is so so frustrating. This growth aspect is just bull. Why have a bid process at all if it is about growth and you ignore the report.

and growth of what. the population of South America is 420mil. the population of Indonesia is 260mil. Let alone Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and the rest of south-east Asia and East Asia. A world cup has never been in this part of the world.

All the work and it will probably be a thank you but no, you cared too much. As a Tasmanian, it is the worst and most frustrating thing. God, I hope I am wrong

Getting my anger out early. Experience.

Edit: And I forgot to mention the fact that we arent a true football lovely nation and heavily compete with other sports for attention....but growth....

Never in doubt :cool:
Congrats to both the Aus and NZL Organisers A job well done!

Huge moment for Australian football.. given the horrid Socceroos/ A League ficasco, this is a breath of fresh air and renewed optimism in the code. Participation levels will go through the roof, especially for the women’s.

Not to mention the patronising designation of the women's World Cup as a "development tournament". You know how you develop a game? You put the highest competition in the biggest market and where you are confident it is going to be run properly AND you invest in grassroots. Is Uefa doing that? Are they sh*t.

I'm so stoked about this result. Been holding back tears this morning watching the coverage. This is huge. We thought the women's cricket world cup was big. This will be bigger, IMO. If the FFA plans this right and makes sure the preparations are on point, there is no reason why Australia could not play in the final. We have the talent. We just need the leadership.
