The United States bid for the 2022 FIFA World Cup™ is an open invitation to FIFA to return to this country and build upon the legacy that it founded in 1994.
By awarding the 1994 FIFA World Cup™ to the US, FIFA awakened an untapped market to the world’s game.
Today, FIFA’s vision has already paid handsome dividends – but it has the potential to deliver even more both at national and international levels.
With an abundance of existing state-of-the-art stadiums, the US offers ideal playing conditions and ultimate fan experiences, as well as the prospect of record-breaking crowds of five million spectators for the FIFA World Cup™. Moreover, with similar predictions of unprecedented attendance for FIFA’s Fan Fest and Confederations Cup, the US is poised to play host to a tournament that will help support and develop the game globally for generations to come.
The US is a country founded upon cultural diversity. Its citizens’ varied heritages and their common passion for the world’s game, unite the country in a spirit of sportsmanship that fuels a commitment to social and environmental causes.
The US celebrates FIFA’s core values, and the opportunity to further FIFA’s goals aligns with our country’s pledge to contribute to a sustainable future for the world and its people.
Today, more than ever, “The Game is in US” But while the world’s game has enjoyed remarkable growth within the US since 1994, the potential of continued growth is even more dramatic.
The United States warmly welcomes the privilege of hosting a FIFA World Cup™ in 2022. To fulfill our vast potential is to honor the game, the tournament and its traditions. Ultimately, however, our goal is simple – to welcome and embrace all people of the world through the game we all love.
