Yeah I think its between LA and New York. I personally think it should go to New York for the final, as it is America's biggest city and is in a better time zone for European TV market. In terms of stadium size I prefer it that the largest stadium should host the final. I have some questions how many world cup finals have not been in the largest capacity stadium of that tournament? And how many world cup finals have not been held in the host country's capital city?

The 94 cup final was held in the largest stadium of the tournament, (Rose Bowl in LA) but not the capital. I think the next time the US hosts the cup the final would be in Washington.

by the time 2022 rolls around Washington will have a nice new retractable roof stadium with about the same capacity as it does now. That garbage known as FedEx Field will no longer exist , making DC the clear favorite to host the final IMO. New York is good and all but hey wouldnt have the largest stadium. The Rose Bowl would be too old and after proposed renovations would have a much smaller capacity.

If the US gets 2022, who should the host cities be??
Not New York (All the games would be in the NJ Meadowlands)
Arlington, Texas (New Cowboys Stadium)
Los Angeles, California (LA Coliseum, new LA NFL Stadium if it is built)
Indianapolis, Indiana (Lucas Oil Stadium)
Miami, Florida (Dolphin Stadium
Seattle, Washington (Qwest Field)
Maybe Toronto, Canada (Rogers Centre) Not likely, not in America
Phoenix, Arizona (University of Phoenix Stadium)
Atlanta, Georgia (Georgia Dome)

Isn't it mandatory to have a roof?
According to the guidelines supplied by FIFA for the World Cup in 2010, it is required that the Tribune D'Honneur and working locations for the media be undercover. So basically, many of those stadiums need to be looked at.

Secondly, i see there being little chance of this happening. One, i think FIFA won't be going back to Americas just so soon, just 8 years after Brazil.

You dont have Washington on the list, that doesnt make sense, and i doubt that Atlanta will host, as people generally dont like to play in domes

I can't believe the Redskins are talking about replacing a ELEVEN year old stadium...

Meanwhile the Chargers are still using a 40 year old stadium...

Whats actually wrong with the FedEx stadium, its capacity is very impressive, and it isn't that old, so please explain why its so bad.

well i personally dont agree with big fat pillars in it for one, for a new stadium it should have unrestricted views! otherwise than that its a bit generic in my opinion but certainly the capacity is impressive

Jack Kent Cooke, the old owner of the Redskins, wanted a new stadium built in Washington, preferably before he died. Time passed and he realized that DC was never going to cut him a deal, so out of spite he build the stadium in the Maryland suburbs which opened in 1997. He built it as fast as he could so he could see it before he died (he never got to see it) and there are a lot of problems with it. Its not east to get around and its just plain uninspiring. It was ranked the 28th worst stadium in the NFL, although it has some of the most luxurious suites in the world it seemed to forget about the casual fan. New owner Daniel Snyder has put a lot of money into the stadium by increasing the capacity and adding extra amenities, but it seems to be to a point where it will never be good. Transportation sucks and its in a horrible location. It should be in the city, making it easier to get to. The Redskins are currently valued at $1.5 Billion, so a new stadium built in DC isnt out of the question. The preferred site is at RFK Stadium in the eastern part of the city. The site has a special place in Redskin fans' hearts and is a logical choice to place it. It would likely be another 90,000 seat stadium with a retractable roof, allowing it to host the Superbowl and the NCAA Final Four in basketball. It would be constructed better and be an overall better experience for the fans.

DC needs a soccer stadium before any thoughts of a NFL stadium.
