The US, Canada and Mexico officially announced their joint bid, today.

 

Interestingly, all matches from the quarters onward would be held in the US. So no third Cup final at Azteca.

USA is clearly the centerpiece of the bid. Canada and Mexico each would hold 10 group/round of 32 matches. While the US gets all the rest. The format still is atrocious with 16 groups of 3 which only guarantees a team two matches. Really stupid and hopefully FIFA will rethink this in the coming years.

 

With such a strong bid I think it is very likely that the we will win the bid. Now the question becomes can I wait 9 more years to go to a WC?

Why not have it like the WBC? Spread out the pool play around the world. Then have the single elimination rounds in a designated country. North America, Europe, Australia probably the only ones equipped to host the big deal games, so rotate it around the 3 continents each time.

These countries building stadiums with slave labor for one month of use has got to stop.

You didn't even mention the worst part.  The best federations UEFA & CONEMBOL are only getting one or two more entrants for the WC.  Most of the bids will be coming from the weaker federations, even CONCACAF is supposed to get 2-3 more teams, who thinks we need that? 


You can bet on the numbers, or you can bet on Buck Showalter.

The weaker confederations. AKA the FIFA power base.
