Could we redevelop Hillsborough for the 2030 World Cup?

Hate to say it but more likely to choose Bramall Lane then Hillsborough.

Outside football United seem a lot more keen on staging things over last few years.

Boxing, Rugby League World Cup, Rod Stewart, Womens Cup Finals, Local Non League Cup Finals, International School boys football.

Cant remember anything at Hillsborough apart from Wednesday games over last few years.

Don't forget they've got a hotel 😂😂

Looks class that.

 

What were the plans for the kop facilities in that? The grass bank behind the kop is a bit of an eyesore but with Penistone Road there’s not much room to redevelop the kop

No chance Hillsborough gets picked 

Still trapped in the 20th century 

 

Lack of parking 

Houses to close 

 

Only thing going for it is Hillsborough Park for a fanzone 

 

And god forbid Dc is owner he'd probley want 100 million on top of free stadium investment to host the matches

Normally about 8 venues used, will be Villa Park, Old Trafford, Anfield, Emirates, West Hams former Olympic stadium, Spurs new one, St James Park and that just English stadiums

 

Hillsborough with a gate of about 32,000 currently with safety restrictions. Would need some million spent on it to just bring it up to 20th century standards and our chairman cannot afford the heating let alone developing the stadium.

 

I think the time of internationals at Hillsborough are over.

Might also be worth remembering that it'll be the 100th anniversary of the first World Cup in Uruguay, and South America, come 2030, will have hosted the tournament once in 50 years (Brazil in 2014; the last time before that was Argentina in 1978). Even though North America will host the 2026 tournament, you'd think that would give them a good chance.

Of course Sheffield would get games if they needed 16 or more venues, what other cities other than the big ones named would be able to cope with all the fans in hotels etc. Also they wont even go on how Hillsborough is now, like last time it scored higher than Elland Road and Bumhole Stain on all the areas marked such as space for redevelopment etc...

 

Nothing has changed with any of the grounds since so why would it not get picked this time??

The grass bank comes in useful at half time when the Kops more than half full.

What 16 stadiums do you reckon would get it?

 

Man United

Spurs
West Ham?
Everton's new stadium
Newcastle?
 

Who else?

Start with all the big cities and work from there.  If Sheffield, won't be Hillsborough - too much baggage

There’s a load, most in the same city. Does this matter?

I'm confused?

Generally tournaments try to spread the locations across the host country; but would it matter if the Arsenal, Spurs, and West Ham were all selected? 
 

Man City and Man Utd

 

Liverpool and Everton

 

Or would you want to pick a shittier ground, because it’s in a different location. E.g.  Sheff Utd, Brighton,
