The United States is huge they need to keep at least the group stages and 1st round knock out stage within regions.
You do have a valid point, but a counter point would be to not have teams play in different regions. So for example, instead of having say a midwest pod of Minneapolis, Detroit, Chicago and Indianapolis, you would have a team play in LA and San Francisco. Or Boston and New York. Or Dallas and Houston.

It's a celebration of soccer, not sightseeing.

But sightseeing does play a big part in it. Cities with even an more than adequate capacity stadium of FIFA requirements would lobby hard to have itself included as part of the host city venues.

Did ya have them little 5 min city introduction videos before each match like we did in our telecast here for FIFA WC 2006? American cities which are part of the bid and are chosen would definitely appreciate the whole city advertising when the WC comes to town.

So it is a celebration of soccer, but sightseeing (and city advertising to the whole world) is a major factor as well. Which is why in my opinion, though an Olympics is great for one city, region and the overall country, a FIFA WC helps to promote every city which is chosen as a host city (and to a lesser extent, every city which hosts a national team for training and as a WC base).

Of course they'll lobby. That's their job. However, USSF should use this as an opportunity to showcase the progress we've made since '94, when we had no top domestic league and people disapproved of us even hosting. The next chance should not be a series of Super Bowls with soccer played instead.

Yes it is about the football, but when the fans are not in the stadiums they need other things to do. So having stadiums in cities that offer good tourist attractions is a smart money making plan.

They're there for the sport primarily. That trumps everything else. It's not like any small towns will be selected anyway. You can find things to do in any major city.

Just look at Kaiserslautern. They're not nor was a world class city, nor did they have significant population or even a stadium meeting requirements.
But they successfully lobbied to have their Fritz Walter Stadion upgraded to capacity for the 2006 WC.

If they can do it, without anything significant to contribute, then any mainstream city could, based on various factors like already having a stadium of capacity or by promising to have such a stadium by the time the WC comes.

So to further discount anyone's claims that this is merely just a celebration of soccer, yes, it is a celebration of soccer, but it's far more than that.
So don't discount your no name hometown, assuming it is a reasonable sized city, it can host, even without a stadium of capacity. All they need to do is lobby hard that they can upgrade their stadium or build a new one in time for the WC.

Is it in the list of cities that have confirmed their willingness to host? I assume the bid team would have selected only stadiums that have proven in the past that they can host soccer or most importantly can fit a regulation size international soccer field without augmentation or removal of lower level seating.

It appears that from renovation pictures such as this one:


Several rows of seating from either side of the stadium can be removed. One could assume that once a soccer pitch is laid down, there is adequate room surrounding the pitch that allows for players' and coaches' benches, cameramen and etc, as opposed to the pitch dimensions stretching to the walls.

Hmm... it appears that this stadium is no longer a part of the bid's shortlisted stadiums. Perhaps things may change, but currently, you won't see it have a chance to host.

If the US win the organization of 2022 world cup, I would make some recommendations about where the final draw would be:

1 Glendale stadium
2 The Mall in Washington DC
3 Las Vegas
4 Atlantic city
5 Philadelphia
6 LA Convention center
Others

I like the idea of Vegas. Glamor, lights and it gives a city that won't host matches a part of the WC.

Las Vegas doesnt even have a stadium, they would have to built one, but that's not a bad idea though.

UNLV has a stadium -- it only seats about 40k, though.

i think instead of the LA Convention Center, it would be at LA Live which is next door. they could use the new Ritz, the hotel ballroom, the facilities and so on
