    Maybe host regions rather than host cities such as;

    Pac NW (Vanc, Portland, Seattle)
    California (LA and North)
    Texas
    Illinois and surrounding areas
    SE US (Atlanta, Nashville)
    Florida
    NE Corridor (DC to Boston)
    Toronto/Montreal
    Mexico City
    Guadalajara
    Monterrey
    San Diego/Tijuana
    Its Edmonton, not Vancouver. BC for some strange reason didnt want to deal with such a shady organisation as FIFA---go figure
    Works for me though, got lots of family in Edmonton--rooms already booked

    We'll have the stadiums ready for when the teams coming from Mexicos groups arent allowed into the USA

    Might not allow them in from Canada either though

    Something like that, yeah. Without looking too much into it, just something like 2/3 groups in each region of:

    Texas/Mexico
    West coast and Edmonton
    North East (more groups in this area)
    Florida and Atlanta
    Central 4
    Mon the Hibs.

    Have a hard time seeing Edmonton as realistic unless in package with other Canadian cities or northern midwest US cities. I think an MLS team would be a requirement to host...

    They were on a BBC map and I just assumed that was decided upon. Maybe it was just an example of what could happen.

    It's not even close to San Francisco! So much so, that they really should force the 49ers to rename!

    Yeah, I'm clearly missing something...

    Maybe the meaning's just changed - it's apparently a 49 minute drive from Candlestick to the Levi's Stadium (in current traffic conditions anyway)

    Ahhhh...12 hours from here wherever it is. Denver sounds most appealing, don't want to deal with California - particularly the Rose Bowl.

    Then again this is eight years from now and I don't know what I am doing this evening.

    Assuming I'm still in the same job I'm in just now in 2026, I'll be making sure that I'm at Stanford through the summer months, rather than the other way around I'm doing things just now. Then it's a short hop on the Caltrain down to Santa Clara for the games!

    Expanded format? Scotland qualification? maybe just maybe Scotland in this region.

    Technically it might not be there, It will either be torn down so that the world cup can go ahead, or the Donald will be able to sidestep his big ticket promise to the red necks and say he's made a brave decision not to build the wall after all so that he can deliver on his newly invented promise of the world cup in 2026. Sorted.

    Good article in today's Guardian describing the format. Three-team groups will be new and a hark back to the second round format circa 1982.

    South America will have 6 teams out of 10 qualifying. Thatís a stupidly high percentage.

    Big increase from four with a potential fifth through the play-offs.

    It pretty much guarantees Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay their place, then perm three from seven for the remaining spots. A lot depends on what the squads are like at the time - Chile, Paraguay, Colombia, Peru and Ecuador have all been decent at points in time and VeNezuela and Bolivia could step up.
    There's only one thing better than a Hibs calendar and that's two Hibs calendars

    The Rams new stadium will be open in 2020, and I think that will get the nod. It should host the Super Bowl in 2022, and is slated to be the host of the LA Olympics opening ceremony in 2028.

    Yes and no. On ability they deserve it.

    New Zealand's bye through every year is a shocker.

    The final supposedly in New Jersey at the Met Life.

    Having watched a few football (soccer) games there before - not a huge fan of the pitch - especially when they lay it on top of 3G and has no bounce. They will also need to sort layout as pitch always looks way too cramped from TV and inside stadium.

    Glad the USA have been awarded it after the last madness of Qatar.

    UK or Australia next to host ideally..

    The hosts stadiums were presented as decided but who knows, presumably things could change. Hard to think no Rose Bowl though. Saw 84 Olympic soccer matches there. Also keep thinking Edmonton was added solely to have 3 Canadian cities, and that it could be reconsidered.
