- World Cup 2018, World Cup 2022, World Cup bids
US Soccer president Sunil Gulati has scheduled a conference call for Monday to announce US Soccer’s bid intentions for the upcoming FIFA World Cups. He will reveal which World Cup U.S. Soccer will make a bid for (2018 and/or 2022).
The USSF is set to bid on both World Cups. The US has been considered a heavy contender for each Cup but could have a stronger chance at getting the 2022 Cup rather than the 2018 Cup due to some pressure from FIFA to put another World Cup in Europe then.
Either way I would imagine the US will get the World Cup in one of those two years. The amount of quality stadium, not to mention large stadiums are already or will be in place by then.
We will see. What do you make of the US’s chances here? Should they hold off and wait to get the 2022 bid or push for the 2018 bid even though its a tough field of bids.
