As we all know Philadelphia is getting their own soccer stadium and team, but did you know also several cities in the U.S. including Philly are bidding on the World Cup! The last time the World Cup was in the U.S. was back in 1994 and drew a record crowd of 3,587,538 and an average match attendance of 68,991. It'll all end in December 2010 when soccer’s governing body—the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA)—will select the countries that will host the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cup™. Other bidding countries include Japan, Spain, Qatar (really?) and Australia.
