Australia famously bid for the rights to host the 2022 Fifa World cup, losing to Qatar. Whilst the loss of the tournament was a blow to all Australian’s, the Townsville region has benefited, as the Queensland Government decided to forge ahead with the development of the North Queensland Stadium as part of the bid to host.
