Pittsburgh Being Considered For 2026 FIFA World Cup

Tampa's Raymond James Stadium being considered to join bid for 2026 FIFA World Cup

The committee reached out to 44 cities in three nations inquiring about their interest in hosting World Cup matches.

A sellout crowd of 64,101 came to U.S. Bank Stadium in August 2016 for an International Champions Cup match played on temporary grass between Italy's AC Milan and England's Chelsea.

"We saw what Vancouver did with the Women's World Cup [in 2015]", he said.

"It's an opportunity to put Vancouver back on the global sporting map".

Tom Cruise possibly injured on set of 'Mission Impossible' sequel
Robert Elswit, director of photography for 2015's " Rogue Nation ", said Cruise will "figure out a way to do" any stunt himself. Tom Cruise is seen performing another wonderful stunt for his new film " Mission Impossible 6 " in London, Aug. 13, 2017.

The City of Vancouver has announced it is one of the cities vying to be part of a joint bid by Canada, the United States, and Mexico to host the Federation Internationale de Football Association 2026 World Cup.

Other cities include Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal, Ottawa, Regina and Toronto. If North America is awarded the World Cup next June, the committee would then work to finalize approximately 16 host cities across the three countries.

The first three World Cups were held in 1930, 1934 and 1938.

"This is an exciting opportunity for Canadian soccer fans to show off the fantastic fan atmosphere we'll be able to provide as a host city and be a significant boost to the economy and local businesses". Kenneth is also a Co-Founder of New Year's Eve Vancouver. In Mexico, Guadalajara, Mexico City and Monterrey are in the runnng.

Key facts about Guam, the centre of US-North Korea tension
Trump issued his strongest warning yet for North Korea in comments to reporters in New Jersey on Tuesday. Barrick Gold Corporation ABX stock popped 1.42%, while Newmont Mining Corporation NEM gained 1.01%.

The formal North American bid will contain 20-25 proposed venues, but if selected, organizers would have to cut the list to between 12 and probably 16. The World Cup requires venues with at least 40,000 seats to host group stage matches.

"There's a lot to look forward to".

"U.S. Bank Stadium is a world-class facility and we are excited to be among the venues chosen to bid on the World Cup in 2026", MSFC chair Michael Vekich said in a statement. At the time, he hoped the news would help the financially flailing CSL survive, but while it didn't, he did not have the benefit of looking back from a Major League Soccer perch.

Right now, the list of possible hosts sites is pretty long.
