According to a couple websites like this one, FIFA president Sepp Blatter is considering eliminating the current World Cup rotation after the 2014 World Cup that would presumable be in Brazil as a part of the South American part of the rotation.
This sort of tells me that FIFA may be looking to link CONCACAF in with South America in the current rotation. There had been some speculation that FIFA would consider doing just that so England or some European country in general. FIFA’s top dudes will meet in South Africa in November and discuss this before the let the world know who will be getting the 2014 Cup.
This definitely could hurt the US’s bid at another World Cup in 2018. I still feel that FIFA knows the US is a big money maker for the Cup and would be stupid to not go there for the Cup. England will make a good penny themselves but I still believe there is no country in the world that will make the revenue like the US will for the World Cup.
It will be interesting to see which way FIFA goes to. Some have reported that Blatter has gone on record saying the US have a very good shot at getting the 2018 Cup. Though I still feel if FIFA eliminates the current rotation and combines the western side of the globe in the last part of the rotation, the US still have a great chance at getting the Cup in 2014.
November will tell us a lot. Until then there is just a lot of speculation going on and rumors to talk about.
