Given the Russians are using Cossacks to help police these events I think a clear message has been sent about causing problems and embarrassing Russia on the global stage....but vodka is a powerful force as well.

If the US doesn't want to host something then don't bid in the first place.

Basically it will be:

3 cities in Canada (Edmonton, Montreal, Toronto) hosting 10 matches
3 cities in Mexico (Monterrey, Mexico City, Guadalajara) hosting 10 matches
10 cities in the US hosting 60 matches including all the quarterfinals/semifinals and Met Life Stadium hosting the Final

I suspect you are right, but we shall just have to wait and see, as some of these ultras are almost like a paramilitary trained force themselves.

Then again you elect the politicians and city leaders, who have obviously worked with The Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football in order to launch such a bid.

In terms of stadia, the US, Mexico and Canada will already have decent stadiums in place, just as the US had in 1994.

In terms of disruption the event is spread out over three countries so disruption will be minimal, and posssible no worse than a normal city sporting events.

They held it in 94! England (a football mad country hasn't had it since 66) and the Netherlands (another football mad country) have NEVER held the tournament!

England already hosts the highest caliber and highest rated soccer league. The country breathes the sport already.
