With the exception of 2011 in Mexico rarely does a big nation host these tourneys. Its usually middle eastern, small south american, african, and asian countries. Id be suprised if we wasted money on bidding when we'd probably lose the bid to someone like Estonia or Ghana

Well, it is the one assured way of qualifying, so it never hurts to try

If we get awarded either of these tourneys, and cant sell the tickets so they are playe din front of empty/half empty stadiums it would probably hurt our chances to hose the world cup in 2026. Never mind the money wasted. Instead of throwing money away on a bid, and if its won all the costs associated with hosting, Id rather invest in USL, NASL, and MLS academies

The most attended world cup in history was in the US. The attendance in these youth tournaments is iffy to say the least, I don't see how it would effect our chances considering our past history with hosting the World.Cup.

I just think that since blatter doesn't like us soccer in general he'll use anything he can to make us look bad to the rest of the footballing world. Combined with the clear message of putting world cups in "developing" nations (Japan/Korea, South Africa, Qatar) I'm just nervous of us not getting a bid while I can fully enjoy it with my family


Conor O'Brien could finally make his Austrian debut for Wiener Neustadt on Saturday.
