Iran, India and Bangladesh offer to host 2011 Asian Cup
I hope Iran gets since it's not very far from where I live (eastern region) and I have some family there so maybe I can attend some matches.
Basically, it's a two-horse race between Iran and India. Iran has the better infrastructural facilities while India has the better socio-political structure. It's too close to call a winner yet.
i do not care who hosts it but if anyone other than iran to host it then i don't want them to get qualified to the final round automatically. look what stupid afc did to afc07.... stupid afc. i hate it.
afc is soooooo gay
Out of the 3, Iran is the best choice.
but if you look at it, other than Malaysia rest of them usually qualify for the AC anyways... I might be wrong though?
but if Iran gets it, it would be pretty interesting to see Australia there... first appearance and they have to play in Azadi... and imagine if it happens to be the competitions first game against the host....
Does India and Bangladesh even have any top quality football stadiums?
only indonesia and thailand...malaysia and vietnam never qualify in the past 20 years
I thought Australia will be in 2007 Asian Cup, no?
stupid afc don't care about the quality of the tournament whatsoever as long as they can do marketing. that's why they let those 4 weaklings in the sea region to host the cup
ahahaha i'm getting whole a lot of neg reps. too bad i can't see who's doing that. . whinners.
go to hell
I hope India will host it because first SAFF havent hosted before plus in India the interest in football is growing and there has been long history of football. India has good stadiums Salt Lake stadium in Kolkata can hold more than 120,000 plus many other stadiums. India is hosting 2010 Commonwealth games plus in the past the World cup Cricket was organised here so it shows our country can organise big event. Bangladesh should co-host with India otherwise India alone, because facilities in India more advanced plus more supporters. If Iran hosts its ok, but here women can come watch no problem
In Iran women can come watch it as well. India's best stadium is salt lake and it is an old, crappy stadium where evry1 has to stand up. If that is the quality then god help the spectators at the other stadiums. Iran is the best choice in my opinion since they hav stadiums and good hospitality.
I think the only problem will be transport and few people will also be reluctant to come to iran as these ignorant ppl call us terrorist...
have in mind Iran have great stadiums..!!
We have 2 new stadiums under construction in Tehran pretty biig
and iran also allowes women into the stadiums to please dont say they dont
AFC gave their last warning to the 2007 hosts and if they don't get it together till next week then they will loose their chance and competition will be held in one of the 2011 bidders!.... most likely India!
wait, I thought they only gave warning to Thailand?
yeah they said Thailand was the worst (with no progress at all) but they say that the rest of them are not pulling their weight and the progress is very slow and insufficient!
I can tell U Malaysia progress is quite good & in track with expectation as they have the stadium & the transport already so no problem there
It is most likely Thailand is dragging everybbody back as the rest cannot continue w/o consulting Thailand
But should have no problem though as the Thais do tend to leave everything to last minute
Iran will get it, because I said so.
Out of the three choices it is a no brainer.
i think Iran should host.
it is a beautiful country with beautiful stadiums.
india cannot compare to it and def not bangladesh.
India is also a beautiful country many tourists come i think even more than Iran. If youre talking about facilities then i believe you Iran maybe has better seats, etc but the stadiums are there in India they just need developing its not so hard if you can find money! India is diverse. Many different cultures and foreigners I can tell you there are many arabs, chinese, parsis, etc there will be support for any team. Plus if they give it to India they can develop the game here there is interest but not much money in football.
Abt the women I thought they cannot watch the games Im sorry I read it somewhere. Iran is good but in my opinion India is stable even if Pakistan plays here no problem they will be treated fine
oh well I don't know what you read but all those Japanese, Irish, etc... women spectators who came to Iran would disagree with you and the things you read!
