You can look at these while you wait for his response: http://kansascity.sbnation.com/2010/...owhead-stadium

P.S. I have no connection to that site

Hahahaha!
You better stop hitting that weed, my friend, and come back to reality!

looking forward to US 22!!!

From the official USA Bid website, http://www.gousabid.com/city :
Quote:
Official cities of the US World Cup Bid

Eighteen cities were selected for inclusion in the USA Bid for the 2018/2022 FIFA World Cups™.
It then lists those that are on the map posted a few back. By that wording, it sounds pretty final.

I understand a city could possibly be added, but I definitely don't anticipate US Soccer taking any games away from these cities listed (so, Indy will get games for sure). A friend even told me that she read an article saying Nashville would host X# of group-stage games. I couldn't find the article to verify the wording.

Nothing is decided yet. At this stage your list is a list of options for fifa should the usa win; same as every other bids' lists. Only when a bid wins is the final list, in consultation with fifa, drawn up.

How do you figure? It is obvious a handful of cities from the 18 locations on the list aren't going to end up hosting any games unless. It would completely unprecedented to have 18 host and I don't even know if FIFA would sign off on the idea so it looks like any city on the list could be disappointed and be left off. No city has a guaranteed to host even if US 2022 is selected so other then some hurt feelings what would be the big difference between denying two more cities out of handful that will be denied anyway?

Even if we get the '18 or '22 bid that doesn't mean NYC/Miami/Dallas will be host cities. I'm sure that one of those cities will be cut out IF Fifa picks the US.

Im pretty sure that New York, Miami and Dallas will all still be there.

If we don't get our stadium situation sorted out (I am very confident that we will), then we won't host. It doesn't matter how big of a city you are if you don't have the stadium and neither the Coliseum nor the Rose Bowl can do it.

Stadium for Los Angeles, and Miami as well but I feel better about the stadiums in Dallas and New York. If Miami does the renovations they've proposed then definitely them.

If FIFA decides to skip Phoenix because of the immigration law, San Diego could replace Phoenix as venue. Two venues in California and two venues in Texas.

Agreed, with a second given being that at least 2 others will come from the northeast among DC, Baltimore, Philly and Boston.

I'd say Seattle is right there as well if the city weren't so isolated. Costs for flying have grown ridiculous of late.

If FIFA skips over Phoenix because of that, it can officially be said that FIFA lacks anything that resembles a backbone.

If you are going to call Miami a lock, then you certainly have to call both Boston and Washington, D.C. as locks.

I would say Chicago is a lock, but they are not on the list.

If people believe in the pod system, then the best bet for a pod would be Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. as a pod. There is easy rail (Amtrak) access between all 4 cities as well as a ton of buses and flights.

Hopefully by 2022 Snyder will have built the Enormo-Dome on the RFK site. I'm not a fan of FedEx Field at all.

I just cant see Boston having a chance in this thing. Gillette is too far away from Boston. Yeah you could set up transportation, but the whole situation looks like its set up to fail when there are going to be so many people staying in hotels that are 40 minutes away. Could it work? Sure. But its far from ideal.

From a logistical and tournament planning point of view, I'm right with you, but you cannot discount the influence that Robert Kraft has in the USSF and the world of US soccer. I don't think they should host over New York, DC or Philly, but I think they will because of Kraft, if we get to host.
