They will take 3 of the automatic 3 spots... and 3.5 spots will be awarded to the rest (CR, Panama, Jamaica and Honduras) is my prediction... unless Guate and Salvador really make some improvements. Trinidad also has a chance... Nicaragua has grown tons and plays better than any of those former dutch colony islands


Exactly what I’d expect.

what are you talking about? the world cup only needs 40,000 capacity (which cities like cincinnati barely have)

chicago hosted the opening match in the 1994 world cup


I've read different, locally. Maybe it was bad info.

In 1994 soldier field held more people.

Cincinatti football stadium holds nearly 5k more people.



Quite entertaining, Rito and myself lol so much at your posts you have replaced comedy movie night @ the Muncher household

Never mind looks like this was a financial issue. Glad chicago turned it down. No reason we should be taxed more than we already are.

Matthew McGrath, a spokesman for Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, said in March: “FIFA could not provide a basic level of certainty on some major unknowns that put our city and taxpayers at risk. The uncertainty for taxpayers, coupled with FIFA's inflexibility and unwillingness to negotiate, were clear indications that further pursuit of the bid wasn't in Chicago's best interests.

I’m sure ESPN has something to do with that. It seems ever since they started featuring El Tri they play most of their matches in the USA.

Exact same reason that every Gold Cup is in the US.
