A committee is already building support to bring the World Cup back to U.S. soil in either 2018 or 2022 (my vote is for both), and I couldn’t be more excited. The World Cup is one of my favorite sporting events and it’s made even more special because it occurs only every four years.
The excitement is only heightened in New York when for a few weeks in the summer the streets empty at kickoff, and every bar with a TV in Manhattan is filled to capacity. It really is, “the world’s game.”
So the U.S. is generating support to make their bid for the 2018 event, and I’m really hoping they can pull through. My hopes of going to South Africa for the 2010 World Cup dwindle with every passing day. So 2018 may be my next best chance to see it live. So go sign the petition. And tell friends to do the same.
