Not if they move it to winter, which is kind of nice and not so dry. If we think Brazil spent too much money preparing for an WC, wait until you see Qatar:

Well for one, you can't stop that. Those states each have the most populated metro areas in America.

And both Texas and Arizona have stadiums with retractable roofs, so that won't be an issue.

I just think games in 35C 80% humidity ruins the spectacle. Although if held at night they can be ok

It's not like Brazil was picture perfect or anything.

If we're only going to give countries the World Cup based on weather, then only Canada, Russia, Northern European, and Oceanic countries should host... and we all know that not every country is fit to host.

Yes, I think they should improve their infrastructures and other facilities if they host. But the most important thing is they should keep in mind that they have to win cup on their homeland.

Hum, what? Big traditional teams like Italy, Spain, Brazil and Germany had lost the WC on their soil and you think the US is expected to win if they host it?
