The World Cup is a whole country thing...



Even though some parts may be played in other cities Atlanta would still be the main city that is advertised. Just like the Olympics.

Umm no it won't. This isn't like the Olympics. There will be games played in New York, LA, Chicago, etc. It's not Atlanta and then smaller cities.

If Atlanta could get one of the final games, that would be much more signifigant. The final matches will probably go to NYC, LA, etc. with the early matches going to Nashville, Baltimore, etc. Its definitely in the running for a final game but I am unsure how that whole process works.\

In case anyone is wondering, in addition to Atlanta, these cities also made the cut:

Baltimore, Boston, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, Seattle, Tampa and Washington, D.C.

So whats the point of biding for a city to host this event? ....wouldnt the host city be the one advertised more? or wouldnt this be there area where most of the travelers are coming too or no?

Thats not how it works. All the cities come together and are part of the U.S. Bid, with all that a "bid" entails. If the U.S. wins, then each city gets to host part of the event.

I think Atlanta has definitely put itself in the position to host a game or two. I was in Los Angeles (Pasadena) for the World Cup Final in 1994 and the atmosphere was surreal! Living in South Pasadena at the time and close to the Rose Bowl I met all types of people from all over the world and even got a chance to meet the some of the Brazilian soccer team members while they were on a outing in Old Town Pasadena. Great times! Hopefully Atlanta can secure something out of the deal .

LA or NYC will not get it for sure....we have a larger airport and we have a dome so no worrying about snow or rain

During the summers all over the US you really don't have to worry about snow or rain. Especially in "It never rains in Southern California"

I still hope Atlanta gets It though It would be huge for the International Stage.

Look at what PeteyNice said above.


And look at the upcoming World Cups as well...they are called South Africa 2010, Brazil 2014...


not Durban 2010 or Salvador 2014, etc.
