On October 29 2007, FIFA announced that it is ending the rotation policy, so the change that an european country can organise the World Cup 2018 is growing!

The Netherlands and Belgium officially told FIFA their interest in hosting the 2018 World Cup.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter met with the presidents of the Belgian and Dutch football associations and bid director Alain Courtois, who was director of the Belgian half of the 2000 European championship co-hosted with the Netherlands.

"There are no borders between our countries...remember, we successfully hosted Euro 2000," Courtois, a Belgian member of parliament, told FIFA during the meeting.
FIFA said in its statement that it was important for the governing body to have only one point of contact at local organising committee level.
"We have presented ourselves explicitly as one candidate and not with two separate organising committees," Jeu Sprengers, chairman of the Dutch FA.
"Normally there are 15 or 20 bigger associations who can handle the job. But in Blatter's opinion Belgium and the Netherlands can be a good example to smaller football associations."

Soon there will be more information in English.
