Saw my only World Cup game at the Rose Bowl in 94 - Sweden vs Cameroon. A great game for my straight friends to be at - warm, sunny with a lot scantily clad Swedish women around.

But I’m sure AZGF would’ve been ogling the Cameroonian chicks. 8-)

Hosting the World Cup will certainly help US soccer tremendously... Oh wait.

I'm a fan and I told friends about this bid a year ago...

a World Cup with venues like Azteca and the Rose Bowl all in one?

We may not win it (or even be in it) but a "North American" World Cup would kick anybody else's ASS

MURICAS!!!

Doesn't the host country automatically get a bid?


I hadnt thought of that - yes? Maybe? I dont know the rule

If we do get an autobid I hope we arent as embarrassing then as we are now

and who would get the auto, since the Cup would be hosted by 3 countries?

Expanding from 32 to 48 teams :suspicious: Are there 48 countries out there with good national teams?

1982-1994: 24 teams
1998-2022: 32 teams
2026: 48 teams

-30-3
-29-1 vs IAA.
-18-0 vs CAA (JMU 20 straight wins vs CAA). 1st Yankee/A-10/CAA team ever to go undefeated in league play in back to back seasons.
-18-0 at home.

BDK, have you watched a soccer game in the past year? Past 4 years? Do you have any idea? Or no?

The last soccer game I watched was the 2014 World Cup final.

So GF, what's the next thing we're looking forward to with the USMNT? I used to watch friendlies, but have lost all interest. I assume the early CONCACAF stages for 2022 will start next fall?

Nobody really plays in the friendlies (for either side) so only the real diehards watch those.

Qatar 2022 is still more than 4 years away (playing in the winter that year, doesn't even start until November 2022) so not a lot of national team focus right now. CONCACAF Gold Cup is next year - basically mid June to early July, and it's in the US again (Chicago is hosting the finals).

As for World Cup qualifying, I don't think they've even come out with what that will be. There's been talk of revamping the whole process. Qatar is still a 32 team tournament, but then it increases to 48 in 2026 when the US hosts. Heck, CONCACAF has even talked about changing their name (too many controversies) so I don't think they've gotten to set up qualifying yet.
