    Default U.S. bids for 2018, 2022 football world cups


    U.S. bids for 2018, 2022 football world cups

    LONDON: U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati announced that the U.S. has submitted a simultaneous bid to FIFA to host either the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cup.

    "We''ve thrown our name in the hat and advised FIFA officially on Friday," said Gulati.

    FIFA set Feb. 2, as the deadline for federations to submit the official paperwork expressing their interest to bid for either or both of the competitions. FIFA emphasized that at this initial stage in the bidding process, the only requirement is for countries to be able to demonstrate their ability to host a sporting event as large as the FIFA World Cup.

    That means having at least 12 stadiums with minimum capacities of between 40,000 for group matches, and 80,000 for the opening match and final. In addition, the very highest standards of TV broadcasting, information and telecommunications technology, transport and accommodation are expected. The U.S. easily meets those primary standards.

    A number of other countries, including Japan, Australia, Russia and Mexico are also bidding to host.
