And why do you think Australia was out of the running for 2022 pretty quickly? Because the European audience is the key audience for the tournament and watching live is key.
Isn't Japan and South Korea in roughly the same time zone as Australia? If that was a factor, those countries shouldn't have hosted the World Cup in 2002. I also suspect that if China ever bids for the men's World Cup, FIFA isn't going to worry about the European ratings.
