Yas Queen!

This should be great, and I'll definitely go to some games.

I just hope that the Aussies don't do a dodgy and steal the hosting rights all for themselves like they did with the RWC back in 2003.

Surprised we got this and at the vote margin we did, not used to a fair contest of awarding events when it comes to FIFA.

Yeah Australia is a great place to host a tournament. Good venues, good tourist infrastructure and pretty safe for visitors.

Why isn't Australia hosting this by themselves? I'm sure they could easily accommodate.

I heard they wanted to get easy votes from Oceania. Australia is in the Asian Federation but they had Japan also bidding so weren't assured of all the Asian votes.

Eden Park is hosting the first match. :thumbup:

Is this confirmed to be built? Can you please post a link to info? Cantabrians have been waiting since 2011 for the new stadium, it's a travesty that in a relatively wealthy, Rugby crazed country like NZ that the Crusaders have been playing out of a suped-up suburban Rugby League field since 2011.

It looks so good. Dunedin and CHCH will ruin every other stadium in the country. Incredible too how costs have skyrocketed. While a different design, For Barr is 5K more capacity built 10 years ago for $180mil. CHCH is almost half a billion.

The Roosters have put in a complaint about its playing surface this morning, after losing two players to season ending ACL injuries during last night's NRL fixture.

As father to an 11 yr old daughter this is excellent.

She and I went to the CWC T20 semis last yr - but I’m trying to go to more women’s sport. This will be awesome for her.

Surface has never been right, we can build great stadiums but can’t lay decent grass

Very complicated business, maintaining a grass surface in a sporting arena.

And aside from those two, Brett Morris lost his footing (without injury) for no good reason that was obvious. Like the other two, he was making a sharp change of direction.

Overseas seem to mange it better than us. AAMI park went through months of turf simply coming away. Many grounds just look simply terrible but that is probably the overuse they get here.
