The World Cup is about bringing nations together in a joint love for the game, and I for one would not judge the U.S. with some "holier than thou" attitude if they did apply, due to the beneficial effects it would have for the sport.

But saying that, like i said earlier, i think the 2022 is a bit too soon following the 1994 world cup, and would prefer the tournament to head back to England .
Why shouldn't it? It's not for posters here to decide. FIFA will, and as long as they welcome all 'feasible' bids, the USA has as much a chance of getting 2022 as the next country.

I concede 2018 will probably go to England, so why shouldn't 2022 go to the US? If anything, the double awarding in 2011 favors USA's chances very much so.

Qatar? Please, don't make me !

For anyone doubting wether the current Giants stadium is FIFA ready, 78, 000 last night saw an incredible game between the USA and Argentina. The new Giants Stadium is going up pretty fast BTW.

Rover3, I don't think matthemod claimed it was for posters to decide, he was just stating his opinion.

California has crappy stadiums today, let alone 14 years from now. Where the hell would these games be held? NFL stadiums cannot get built here because those backwards owners like to rape tax-payers and California is too smart for that. MLS venues are far too small. The only worthy venue is the new Stanford Stadium and it's just 50K.

At the renovated LA Coliseum, the New 49ers stadium, possibly the new Chargers stadium

To what extent would the LA Coliseum be renovated? Because it is very old and far from modern really.

Don't like the other ones, this looks great though. But with this amount of changes to be made, shouldn't this be called a complete rebuilding? It seems like a commpletely different stadium. What capacity would it have then?
And for me this might have been one of the best stadiums in the world... if it had steeper stands and a roof of course (a canopy like these plazas [or something] around might be fantastic). And I'm also not sure about the "times square" flashy block...
But still, far more than I thought could be made out of it and definately has its charm. Any more details about this (re)design?
One more question: if this stadium is to change its looks so much, wouldn't it be more feasible to build a completely new one?

Well they are rebuilding it, its just gonna have the same name, like Wembley or Soldier Field. Because its a "protected site" theyre calling it a renovation-they did the same thing at Soldier Field. The columns in the front of the building are still going to be there, although you may not be able to see it in the picture. They are going to keep the stadium in the same location because its right next to the University of Southern California. Personally i think its too glitzy, but you have to remember that this is LA, where everything has to be top dollar, theres going to be a lot of wealthy people at these games. I think that if they just make the bowl smaller and add seat backs with a bunch of suites on top it would be fine.

Uhmmm, en. That is incorrect. That is a model for a completely NEW, completely separate LA area arena in the West Covina area -- if LA gets an NFL team.

The LA Coliseum (at least the Peristyle portion of it) has landmark status -- and there are no plans to renovate it. As a matter of fact, some state congressman wants to sell the land and have it completely demolished as part of balancing the state budget.

Would it be unpopular to demolish the old Coliseum? I suppose it wouldn't have much of a purpose with the new construction.

I like the looks of the New Coliseum, and the Rose Bowl very much. Cant say I'm fond of the SF design - it looks like someone designed it out of Lego.

Then I'm confused. For a completely new stadium this one wouldn't really look good. If it was a renovation- it would be a stunning outcome.
So which will it be?
And can a congressman just say we demolish it to ease the budget if it has a landmark status?

the rose bowl is actually bigger, although not by much. It was likely selected because of the better sight lines.


this is an actual proposed renovation of the Coliseum, although i dont know if its being considered anymore. Personally i think its much better than the new one
