I measured, LP Field is about 81-82 meters by 121-122 meters.

I think FIFA would bend their arbitrary regulations for this stadium, it would be a great fit.

From Wikipedia's page on LP Field:

"LP Field is occasionally used by the US men's national soccer team and US women's national soccer team. The venue was used for friendly matches by the women in 2004 versus Canada and the men in 2006 versus Morocco. The stadium hosted the CONCACAF men's qualifying tournament finals for the 2008 Summer Olympics with the winners securing tournament berths in Beijing, China.[3]"

So much for it not being able to host soccer matches...

Some MLS team should recruit Carrera and give him the job of prepping the US stadia for our 2018/2022 bid.

FIFA's secret promise to SoccerUSA now revealed here for the first time: they will give the USA 2022 because of what we did for the women's game in 2003, salvaging it from the incapable hands of China. Ha!!

You need to get your eyes checked too. Look at my ID carefully again. I'm not Carrera!

For example "Baltic arena" might be named Baltic Lotos arena, due to the investor.

This stadium would only keep its original name if during world cup if it was named "Baltic Arena".

But if the stadium's name has the investors name in it. Fifa says up yours to the investor, and renaims the stadium "World Cup Venue: *Location of Venue*"
Same happened in Germany in 2006. Most statium had compnay names but were required to cover it during the cup.

as en already mentioned it
most NFL stadiums are able to host a Football match (105m*68m)

The USA just need a roof at the mainstand.
A Temporary is also possible like at Helsinki Olympic stadium 3 years ago

NFL stadiums that we know will have roofs at that point

Lucas Oil Field
Reliant Stadium
Edward Jones Dome
Ford Field
Georgia Dome
Metrodome/Vikings new stadium
Louisiana Superdome
Qwest Field
New Cowboys Stadium
U of Phoenix Stadium

NFL Stadiums that have actual roof plans
Dolphin Stadium
Cleveland Browns Stadium

Stadiums not listed above that have hosted soccer + have the type of owner that would
likely build a roof or whatever is required OR some combination of the above.

Gillette Stadium
Soldier Field
Invesco Field
Lincoln Financial Field
FedEx Field
Bank of America
New Giants/Jets Stadium



Non NFL Venues with roofs that have hosted rectangular field sports
- Chase Field
- Safeco Field
- Alamo Dome
- Pontiac Silverdome

I'd also throw in whatever incarnation a San Diego and Minnesota stadium will end up as.


This thread is making this equation too hard. We're talking about the NFL. If this group of owners felt a World Cup would benefit them in some way, they'd build whatever they had to. The Venue are already there.

Lost here is the actually wording of FIFA regarding roofs. The only requirement is to cover press and dignitaries. Some of these stadiums already have enough suite and covered club sections for the press.

If I had to make a guess a list of stadiums bidding would look like this(strengths listed):

Ford Field
Lucas Oil Field
Reliant Stadium
Louisiana Superdome
Qwest Field
New Cowboys Stadium
U of Phoenix Stadium
Gillette Stadium
Soldier Field
Invesco Field
Lincoln Financial Field
FedEx Field
Bank of America
New Giants/Jets Stadium
Dolphin Stadium
Cleveland Browns Stadium

Plenty to choose from

You can lay real turf inside a dome, it just doesn't have a long 'life'. Lay it early enough to bed in, use it in the group stages, then get off it before it's dead.

In fact, if memory serves me right, it's been done for a world cup before - possibly US 94, or maybe 2002 - can anyone confirm?

Surely was in 2002 in Sapporo Dome, but the situation was very different, because there the natural pitch slides out of the stadium and normally is left outside.
