Who's In, Who's Out In U.S. Bid For FIFA World Cup 2018, 2022

January 13, 2010: Los Angeles, New York, Boston, Dallas and Washington are among the 18 cities selected by the United States Bid Committee to be included in its official list being presented to FIFA to host the World Cup in 2018 or 2022.

FIFA and its 24 member executive committee will study all bids from around the world, conduct site visits and name the two host nations for the 2018 and 2022 tournaments on Dec. 2, 2010, completing a 21-month bid and review process.

The 18 cities were selected after an eight-month selection process. The selected cities are 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.

Due to FIFA's 18-city maximum, nine host cities from a previous list had to be eliminated. In alphabetical order, they are: Charlotte, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Jacksonville, Oakland, Orlando, St. Louis and San Francisco.

Stadiums with a minimum capacity of 80,000 are required by FIFA for consideration to play host to the Opening Match and Final Match. The U.S. used stadiums in nine cities when it last  hosted the 1994 FIFA World Cup.

Among the sites on the list are the new Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, outside of Dallas (100,000), Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum (93,607) and the Rose Bowl (92,000+), FedEx Field in Washington. D.C. (91,704) and the new Meadowlands Stadium set to open in East Rutherford, N.J. (82,000).

The 2010 World Cup is being held in South Africa, and the 2014 World Cup is being held in Brazil. The U.S. last hosted the FIFA World Cup in 1994. Other nations contending to host the next World Cups are Australia, England, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico and Russia, which have formally declared their desire to host the FIFA World Cup in 2018 or 2022. Netherlands-Belgium and Portugal-Spain have each submitted joint bids for the 2018 and 2022 tournaments, while Qatar and South Korea have applied as candidates to play host only to the tournament in 2022, according to FIFA.

Official host cities were chosen based on a set of 21 different criteria that included FIFA's specific bidding requirements.

"Just by virtue of the quality of our cities and stadiums, it was very difficult to reduce the field to the maximum of 18 established by FIFA," David Downs,  executive director of the U.S. Bid Committee, said during a press conference to unveil the 18 host city list. "In fact, we could have submitted 24 cities and stadiums, making it possible for the United States to hold two World Cups simultaneously."

According to  Sunil Gulati, chairman of the U.S. Bid Committee and president of U.S. Soccer, "Our hopes of becoming a host nation are strengthened many fold by the announcement of the 18 cities we will submit to FIFA on May 14. These 18 cities share outstanding leadership with a vision and understanding of what a FIFA World Cup would mean to the United States, along with how well we can play the role of host to visitors from throughout the world."

Representatives from all 18 cities and their respective stadiums signed agreements that are in full compliance with FIFA's hosting requirements, according to the U.S. Bid Committee, adding that the agreements involved a tremendous amount of coordination between State and local government officials along with representatives from the various stadiums and Convention and Visitors Bureaus.

"We consider it a meaningful indicator of the significant growth of soccer in this country that we can put forth such a technically sound bid without four of our cities that served as hosts for the first FIFA World Cup in the United States in 1994," said Downs. "The emergence of passionate followings for the sport and state-of-the-art venues throughout the country has strengthened our ability to put together a truly national bid to host the FIFA World Cup in 2018 or 2022."
