U.S. SOCCER BID 2018/2022

U.S. Soccer is preparing a formal bid to host the 2018/2022 World Cup. FIFA will pick the host cities for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup's in December 2010. Australia, Belgium and the Netherlands, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Portugal and Spain, South Korea and Qatar are all bidding. It is believed that with South Africa hosting in 2010 and Brazil hosting in 2014, FIFA would return the event to Europe, leaving England, which hosted the event in 1966, as the sentimental frontrunner to host in 2018. U.S.A's, which hosted the most attended World Cup in history in 2004, best chance is being awarded the 2022 event. See you all then and don't forget to bring the kids!
