Could the World Cup Come to Philly?!
Remember back in November we announced that the World Cup could quite possibly come to the United States? Well we just reached one step closer! Officials today celebrated the announcement by the USA Bid Committee that the city was named one of 18 finalist U.S. cities to host the FIFA World Cup™ in 2018 or 2022.
The remaining cities continuing the bid include: Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, New York, Phoenix, San Diego, Seattle, Tampa, and Washington, D.C. FIFA is expected to announce the host countries for both 2018 and 2022 in December 2010. Let's cross our fingers Philly (and the U.S.). The last time our country hosted a World Cup was back in 1994.
