By 2030 odd the US economy may have sunk so low and be mired in so much debt that the sentiment that the US is the market soccer needs may no longer exist. For all we know India or some other emerging country may have more to offer. Just a thought.

The UEFA is still looking for a host for the 2016 European Championships of Non-American Association Football Played With Feet and A Round Ball! I guess we're really lucky!

Thank you so much US of A!

There's a way you can bid for World Cup. Remove some rows of seats in front so that your stadiums can meet the FIFA dimensions for playing area! But can Americans do it just for a football tournament which is held only for a month?

Under FIFA regulations any stadiums which hold world cup matches must have the dimension of 105m x 68m for playing field and "at least" 8.5m on the sides / 10m on the ends for auxiliary area, which results in an "minimum" dimension of 125m x 85m for overall playing area (playing field + auxiliary area).



On the other hand the field dimensions for American football are 120 yards (109.7m) x 53.3 yards (48.8m) as far as I know. It seems that it's OK for the length but for the width there seems to be a problem. Take New Meadowlands for example, it's definately less than 85m in width.

keep in mind that you only measured the width of the playing area at the Meadowlands, not the actual width of the field.

Even then. If the 48.8m figure is correct, you need an additional 10m on each side, and that's only for the football (soccer) pitch, dugouts, free zones... not included. No way you can fit that in there.

Most stadiums here are capable of hosting a WC match. The Meadowlands is going to have a smaller playing surface than most, but it doesnt mean that all stadiums here arent capable of hosting.

Kind of hard to remove seats and stands that permanently attached to the stadium.

New Giants STadium will be FIFA approved. FIFA had someone work with the Giants and Jets to make sure the field would be approved. Both the Giants and Jets want to host FIFA approved games at the new stadium.

2034- North America
No way Australia wins in 2022 (China, the US beg to differ).

And in the case it does win, then Asia can't host the 2026 games as they're in the same confederation, leaving the door open for the Americas to host.

8 Cleveland Browns Stadium 73,200 Cleveland , Ohio
9 Lambeau Field 72,928 Green Bay Wisconsin
10 Qualcomm Stadium 71,294 San Diego California
11 Georgia Dome 71,228 Atlanta Georgia
