World Cup bid committee names Chicago one of 32 potential host cities

World Cup bid committee names Chicago one of 32 potential host cities

"Additionally, the potential host cities reflect the vast geographic and cultural diversity of North America and share a commitment to using the once-in-a-generation opportunity of hosting the FIFA World Cup to welcome, entertain, inspire and empower the next generation of players and fans as never before".

Salt Lake City joins 32 cities across Canada, Mexico and the United States that were selected and will be included in the formal bid that the United Bid Committee will submit to Federation Internationale de Football Association in March of 2018.

"Our biggest challenge will be finding ways to honour the enthusiasm of all the people across Canada, Mexico and the United States through the development of our united hosting concept".

The United Bid Committee stressed that non-host cities will be considered for such tasks as possible locations for team base camps or other non-competition related events leading up to the tournament.

All three Mexican bidding cities (Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey) are widely expected to make the final cut.

The Circle City was dropped from the list of potential hosts for the 2026 World Cup. This representative finalize hosting documents and show how their city will integrate the United Bid Committee's strategy and vision.

The 2026 World Cup, which would be the first to be held on this continent since 1994, will also be the largest tournament ever with 48 nations participating.

The city has been named one of the 25 finalists, plus seven in Mexico and Canada, still in the running to host.

The United Bid Committee representing the three nations' joint bid for the event announced Wednesday that nine cities - seven in the USA, two in Canada - are no longer in the running.

The Canadian men's national team is ranked 95th in the world.

Morocco is the only other country to have submitted a bid.

If the committee's bid is successful, at least 12 cities will be selected as venues for the games. Rice-Eccles Stadium is one of the smallest of the stadiums on that list.
