U.S. Makes Formal Presentation To Host FIFA World Cup In 2018, 2022

May 14, 2010: An official move to host either the 2018 or 2022 World Cup has been submitted by the USA Bid Committee to FIFA, the global governing body for soccer.

The U.S. last hosted the FIFA World Cup in 1994. The move comes as the U.S. National Team prepares to play in the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. The 2014 FIFA World Cup will be held in Brazil.

A delegation from USA Bid Committee submitted the official U.S. Bid Book to host the 2018 or 2022 FIFA World Cup in a formal ceremony at FIFA headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland.

The submission of the official bid books begins a seven-month review process that will include site visits by FIFA executive committee members to each bidding nation and culminate with the selection of the host countries for the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cups on Dec. 2, 2010, in Zurich.

In addition to the U.S., Australia, England, Russia, Netherlands-Belgium and Portugal-Spain (the latter two represented jointly) submitted bids to host the FIFA World Cup in 2018 or 2022; Japan, Qatar and South Korea are bidding to host the tournament in 2022.

“Submitting the U.S. Bid Book to FIFA is a major milestone in this process and the result of months of planning and hard work,” Sunil Gulati, chairman of the USA Bid Committee and president of U.S. Soccer, said in a statement. “But it also marks the beginning of the most critical portion of this bid in which we must make a compelling case to the 24-member FIFA Executive Committee that the United States is the right country to host the FIFA World Cup in 2018 or 2022."

Among others supporting the U.S. bid are Mexico and CONCACAF, which has pledged the full support of the soccer governing body for North and Central America and the Caribbean.

The U.S. bid book includes 18 host city finalists (alphabetically): Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, Seattle, Tampa and Washington, D.C.

The list of host cities includes 21 stadiums in compliance with FIFA’s requirements to be included in the bid book to FIFA. The venues average capacities of more than 76,000 spectators while 12 of the stadiums feature capacities between 75,000 and 94,000 fans.

The U.S. Bid Committee has launched a Web site and will follow with marketing with the tag, "The Game is in us."
