I wouldn't be so sure on that. It could draw from a reasonably populated region unlike Denver or Phoenix. It has one of the better outdoor venues in the country and if having well connected group clusters is deemed a priority it could fit in well with a Midwestern grouping.

West:

Seattle- Qwest Field (67,000)


San Francisco/San Diego- New 49ers/Chargers stadium, whichever gets build first (about 70,000)



Los Angeles- Rose Bowl (92,000)


Phoenix- Cardinals Stadium (63,000)


Midwest:

Denver- Invesco Field (76,000)


Houston- Reliant Stadium (71,500)


Dallas- JerryWorld (80,000-100,000)


Chicago- Soldier Field (61,500)

East:

Miami- Dolphin Stadium (75,000)


DC- Fedex Field or New Redskins Stadium (91,000)


New York City- New Giants Stadium (82,500)


Boston- Gillette Stadium (69,000)

Average World Cup 2022 Capacity- 75,000

University of Phoenix Stadium can be expanded to nearly 74,000 and certainly would be for a World Cup.

Hi, this is my opinion about USA bid

There is big possibility for USA to host FIFA World Cup 2022.

There should be 12 stadiums because USA is huge country and distances between cities are big. So this cities should be taken into account and schedule should be like this:

Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles for groups A and B

Phoenix, Dallas and Houston for groups C and D

Tampa, Washington DC and Philadelphia for groups E and F

New York, Chicago and Detroit for groups G and H

Seattle, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Dallas, Tampa,Washington DC, New York and Detroit for Second Round

San Francisco ,Houston, Philadelphia and Chicago for Quarterfinal

Los Angeles and Dallas for Semifinal

New York for Third Place Match

Washington DC for Final Match

I know a lot of people agree that they need to use the pod system like this, but I'd be surprised if this was how they were grouped. New York would be grouped with the two other northeatern sites, Washington DC and Philadelphia/Boston (either is possible). I also think that Miami would be the first choice as a host site in Florida. I don't think there would be four west coast sites if you're grouping the pods in threes so Phoenix is out if San Francisco can't get a new stadium done, which is unfortunate because it's a great facility. If you want four west coast sites then I think they're going to have to go to a three pod system.

Miami is not a good option. If a Latin American team is not in the goup that plays its games there, the stadium would not even sell out.

You underestimate it's tourist value.

Dallas is actually trying to get the 91,000 seat Cotton Bowl and 100,000 seat Cowboys Stadium in the bid.

The Cowboys stadium will be most likely be used for a Quarterfinals game no matter what.

The World Cup would easily sell out regardless. People would show up for the event, even if there wasn't a Latin American team. Also, there will likely only be one venue in the South hosting and if it's Miami, you can bet a lot of people from all around Florida, Georgia, Alabama, S. Carolina, etc. will make the trek to see some matches. The matches there would sell out easily, especially when you consider the influx of tourists who would love to go to Miami.

Dallas definitely won't get two hosts and there's no way the Cotton Bowl steals matches from Jerry World. Jerry World will almost certainly host a quarterfinal and I could see it possibly getting a semifinal possibly so they can pack 100,000 in. I wouldn't bet on it and I don't think it will happen, but it wouldn't shock me.

Additionaly to my proposition, the cities would be clustered in two "conferences" reflecting the US geography and reducing time of travels (I flew from Newark to LA in 6 hours).

Group A (Team USA), B , C (imcubent world champion), D : East
New York
Boston
Philadelphia
Washington DC
Miami
Chicago

Group E, F, G, H : West
Dallas
Houston
Phoenix
Los Angeles
San Francisco
Seattle

Round of 16
Group A first-Group F second : East
Group B first-Group E second : West
Group F first-Group A second : East
Group E first-Group B second : West
Group C first-Group H second : East
Group D first-Group G second : West
Group H first-Group C second : East
Group G first-Group D second : West

In an interview the other day USSF President Sunil Gulati said that they may use more than the 12 venues FIFA usually asks for if FIFA wants more because of the size of the country.

Northern California will not have a new stadium by then. Public attitudes have shifted and NFL business practice will not catch up in time.

I'm not so sure. Now that there's talk of the 49ers and Raiders sharing a stadium it could happen and 2022 is a long ways off. I agree that there won't be one there soon, but in 7-10 years, yeah it could happen.

Hey guys, this is my first post in this forum, so hello to everyone.
I have one question regarding the stadiums proposed for the world cup. Many of them are used for NFL matches, and hence have artificial turf rather than natural grass required for FIFA games. Are they coming up with a solution for that, or is there already a method in place to deal with it?
Thanks

Technically, turf is approved by FIFA and matches can be played on it, but they never would. For stadiums with turf they would bring in grass and lay it down over the turf like they did for the Silverdome in the '94 WC.

Just because its an NFL stadium doesnt mean it uses artificial turf
