Should the USA team have a home stadium?

No, change the venue around with the seasons and opponents for maximum home advantage. Playing Latin American teams in the winter? Cold weather venue. Hosting a UEFA team for a friendly in June? Texas.

You can play great soccer in a world class stadium all year long in the 100% acclimatized Lucas Oil Stadium in Indy. I'm not a big fan of the city myself, but the stadium is awesome.

I think they get maximum attendance out of transfering the stadium around and it also has the opportunity to grow the fane base. I like how they do it now.

Having a single stadium is a terrible idea. Terrible.

Love The Luke as well, but it should be moved around.

Is there any national team in the world that actually have a home stadium? Never heard of such a thing.

Id say there are less teams with no home stadium than with one.

That's so bizarre, I knew these countries have home stadiums classically associated with them but did not realize they are their official home stadiums. To me, it does not make any sense at all for a national team to have a home stadium, they represent a nation and should be rotating all major stadiums on their performances, like Brazil and USA do.
