No, they can create a wall of white noise by screaming and shouting but thats not the football atmosphere people complained about missing when the white noise din of the Vuvuzela was dampening out real fans.

Mexico, USA, Canada

At this time, the US and Canada were not really interested in football. Mexico was the only acceptable applicant for FIFA and got 100% of the votes.

Subtract any you are saying before WW2 because we lost 3 World Cups in there. It's misleading.

You americans must be tough

A football match in Germany would have been cancelled in conditions like this
What about a pitch heating at Lambeau field?

I think that they've had it since the 70s but it didn't really work too well until renovations like 15 years ago. A Packers fan would know better...

Actually, the heating system has worked reliably since at least 1995'ish. The team also installed DD Grassmaster few years ago which has been really popular with the grounds crew and fans.

Going by this, 28 yrs for NA is much longer.
Talk about skewing numbers mate! NA has hosted 3 since '66. Think how many countries there are in Europe and how many of them are powerhouses in world football. Of course they should get the WC more often for the same reason they get more WC qualification spaces.

Yeah that was way too short as well. But that was only because someone else pulled out remember.

Seen that clip before. Incredible noise but that's all it is. Millwall probably took about 1,000 away to Leicester whereas there must be over 80,000 there.

Cut the shit! What do you define as a real fan because I bet your definition is different from mine!

True although that said I think it's slightly unfair to compare that to those damned vuvuzelas. I know different sports, different situations, different cultures...

I agree. A College stadium going loopy is of course a much more agreeable spectacle than the Vuvuzelas but my comments were in response to hngcm's post. Anyhow.

It's a shame there won't ever be a world cup game here in Buffalo We don't have a roof, and the field is not heated. In football season a roof is unnecessary as the temps are low, the sun is welcome, and it rarely rains or snows in the fall. In winter we get a lot of snow so the late season games can be iffy but a roof would make conditions for the fans worse. And this is just plain fun...

You like a roof, we don't. No reason to discuss it further, and definitely not the thread to talk about UK stadiums.

We grow up with our horseshoes, ovals, sun shining on us, screaming at the other team's offense, tailgating and putting our arms on our armrests, so that's what we like.

You grow up with your four straight sides with nothing in the corners, singing to pass the time while sitting in the shade, and that's what you like.

Its not about what you or I like its about what FIFA likes and about the USA putting up the best possible bid for a World Cup simple as that.

The actual ball in the NFL spends little time on the ground, so it is not nearly as impacted by the snow.

This is exactly why they call Lambeau Field 'The Frozen Tundra.'
