interesting that Crown Town has more signatures than most every other city. Including NYC and LA. Seattle is in the lead by far, but i think Charlotte is top 3-5. I hope soccer haters dont try and deep six this thing. World Cup back in the US would be huge. We still own the largest attendance in WC history from back in '94, and we've come a logn way since then.

Just think of all the hot foreign wimmins if you hate soccer.

It'd be a big thing for Charlotte, would bring a ton of money in and help us get recognition internationally. Sometimes I think the national media likes to put the screws to us.

Charlotte has one of the premier bids in the US when all factors are weighed equally. The stadium is great, fits a WC sized field perfectly and it has good sightlines. It's uptown so it's accessible by rail. Also, UNCC, Davidson, Wingate, and the new stadium in Matthews are great training venues.

Right. So many round robins before the knockout rounds will require multiple venues.
The final will either be the Cowboy's new stadium or LA Coliseum or Rose Bowl.

I would prefer knockout round simply for the quality and round robin is the quantity.

Yea, Charlotte is trying to be one of probably 12 host cities.

It'd probably host group stage matches and then a round-of-16 match.

Now if only people outside of the South would understand that Atlanta and Charlotte aren't right next to each other.
