In particular, The Age has an article, Australia's World Cup bid to soccer it to 'em, where they touch on the stadiums we have.
It mentions only six, which isn't very flattering.
We've actually got at least ten, and we could have fourteen by then.
Sydney has the ANZ Stadium (83,500), the Sydney Cricket Ground (50,000), and the Sydney Football Stadium (45,000).
Brisbane has Suncorp Stadium (52,500), the Queensland Sport and Athletic Centre (48,400), and the Gabba (42,000).
Melbourne has the MCG (100,000), Telstra Dome (56,300), with Princes Park (35,000) and the new Rectangular Stadium (31,500) just under the mark.
Adelaide has AAMI Stadium (51,500), there is discussion of a new 45,000 capacity soccer ground at Bonython Park, and Adelaide Oval (33,500) could probably be upgraded.
Perth has Subiaco (43,000) and this week the WA Premier announced a new 70,000 seat stadium at Kitchener Park.
So we have ten stadiums over 40,000 already built, an eleventh in Perth already committed to, a twelfth in Adelaide likely, and another two or three that could easily be upgraded.
Germany had twelve stadiums for the last world cup, with most around 40,000 to 50,000, and none as big as the MCG or ANZ Stadium.
With a modest amount of investment, proper ground preparation, and good scheduling, Australia could easily host the world cup.
