Agreed, and my hope is that improves Indy's chances of making the final 12.

What was the criteria? An existing team, or just a big stadium?

If you get it I hope England don't qualify like last time. I would be ashamed of the culture clash when several thousand drunken yobs descend on a city.

England will most likely get 2018. US can try 2022. I prefer Houston over Dallas as one of the cities, although Arlington's brand new Cowboys stadium would be terrific. Along with Standford, Rose Bowl and Pontiac Silverdome. Don't recommend NY; traffic is a nightmare.

silverdome - really?!

that place is in not so great shape

massive building, but the combination of old astroturf and outdated facilities wouldn't make it a strong candidate unless the new owners put in serious work

Detroit/Pontiac didn't make the list.

The Silverdome hosted the Group A and Group B games in USA '94.

Incidentally, the OP needs to update his list. Denver is missing. I much prefer Candidate Venues. It gives a better picture of what each stadium offers.
