I am going to get to tell my grand kids I was there to watch Canada play in the world cup!

BTW we are going to end up having games played in the Rogers center arnt we? BMO barely holds 30 000.

Lol what have China and Australia contributed to football? The options were this group bid, or Morocco, and Morocco isn’t even on the same planet compared to the US when it comes to being able to handle something of this magnitude.

This is a return to form when it comes to WC hosts, dodging the human rights nightmares they have been facing recently.

US have the highest incarceration rate on the planet. That's a human rights nightmare right there.

Give to to China. Give it to Australia. Give it to Tunisia. Give it to Mexico and Canada alone.

This argument that teams with football heritage should host a world cup is so lame tbh

And China, as you propose have a clean conscious of human rights?

Incarceration rates? What does that have to do with human rights? We're talking migrant workers being worked to death in Qatar, basic civil liberties being disregarded, China's overpopulation problem (one child act), ridiculous pollution, let's not even get into Russia.

It's night and day. Surely no country is perfect but if you made a list, the likes of Qatar and Russia would be near the bottom and the U.S., Canada, and Mexico would be above the midline, closer to the top.

US already hosted a World Cup before, even if it was before you guys were born.
What have they done in the meantime? Not adapted to the FIFA calendar, instead tried to jail harmless FIFA officials from Trinidad or some such places for some small time bribery.

Morocco would need to spend 20% of their GDP on the World Cup. Not to mention build new stadiums that would go to rot like the ones in South Africa have. US already have stadiums, they are rich enough to spend on it without their economy taking a massive hit and have hotels and airports in every city thats gonna host 8 years ahead. They could have a World Cup in a year and pull it off.

I mean, if you would have said it should have gone to and England type, who haven't had it in a long time, I would have agreed with you, but China, and Tunisia?

Australia would be a good option. Not sure if they have campaigned hard, but I could totally see that working well.

Ive got seasons too actually, that was some game tonight wow

And on Canada's auto spot, its not been decided but either way our program has completely changed and now there's real drive behind our project

If we dont get automatically included, wed have to go through qualification without the two biggest nations in our way (historically speaking anyway)

3 cities of Canada confirmed
3 cities of Mexico confirmed
10 cities of USA needs to be selected out of 17

Some world cup games in my town... unbelievable, is it a dream ? I will be 31-32 years old, maybe i'll even have kids who can live this moment by then.

My personal choices for USA
- New York: obvious choice
- Boston: such a beautiful city, lots of history, a must
- Washington: should host the opening match and the final
- Los Angeles: obvious choice
- Atlanta: a true sports city where people LOVE soccer
- Seattle: great fans, best in the league, close to Vancouver who didn't qualify
- Dallas: obvious choice
- Denver: beautiful landscapes
- Miami: for the weather, it's like 2 hours from Orlando iirc, great place for tourists
- San Francisco: not an obvious choice but i can't see them not hosting

As long as Boston is selected I'm happy, obviously.

Final in NY will also be drivable to me so definitely going, although tickets will be so expensive I should probably start saving now Laughing

Same. I thought it was in for sure, but I guess Soldier Field wasn't enough and Toyota Park is too small and out of the way. Probably making a push for soccer cities with larger, soccer-specific stadiums.

Not surprised Detroit didn't make it as the Big House is the only stadium big enough to host World Cup events, but UofM likely wouldn't have wanted that.

So I guess I'll be traveling to Toronto since I doubt Cincy will make the cut.

For us we can finally watch every game even during the weeks. Matches at 16, 19 and 22.

I look on Google and find out Qatar 2022 is in the same time zone as Moscow. So here comes another edition of games at 8, 11 and 14 :facepalm:

I heard it was a financial issue for Chicago. Soilder field is a big stadium that can be used for WC matches

Very likely that's the issue then. Chicago, and Illinois by in large, are in a lot of financial trouble right now. I had considered moving there next year, but it doesn't look like that's happening.
