Im not that lucky….new owner is building a downtown stadium.
baseball, football & hockey/basketball all next to each other.
I grew up 2 blocks away and loved it but it’s crazy.
Media markets selected:
Bay Area 6
New England 10
Size doesn’t matter when you’re the…
The fuck does media markets selected mean
So apparently DC withdrew their bid in April due to stadium issues? Makes people being upset about it even more comical.
The size of each media market picked
I think that’s when they changed their bid and tried to join up with Baltimore to use the Ravens stadium.
Using media markets to choose World Cup sites seems dumb. All the games are going to sell out and be watched wherever they go.
No, shit ass FedEx Field was withdrawn. DC was still in on a joint bid with Baltimore at the Ravens stadium.
Gotcha. Jason Davis phrased it like DC withdrew. That would make more sense.
Yep the fan fare shit was going to be in DC and the matches played in Baltimore.
I saw something that public transportation was an issue but I'm not sure why. People could have just taken the Marc from Union Station into Baltimore. I guess public transportation in Baltimore is definitely lacking but I don't see many people venturing away from M&T and the Harbor so idk.
bc they didn’t have a choice . we do. we have around 7 modern climate controlled NFL domes and a large region with more favorable weather in July. I would have awarded a bid to every dome and gave Western cities bids. avoid any host where you need stoppage in play for water breaks except KC bc their soccer hub status
No one wants to play in domes
They will melt in the Bay Area.
This is dumb. The players will be fine.
Nothing screams World Cup like playing games in domes!
really just a reflection of Europe not needing them and South America not having the money for them. No reason not to play in the venues that offer the best experience for fans and players (which obviously also means sorting out the turf issue)
there’s more than enough venues that aren’t domes that can host. Playing in domes would be dumb as hell
Guess we better start building domes for summer baseball and MLS too.
I hope the four domes that were selected won’t ruin the integrity or intelligence of the competition
Lol. My point was picking exclusively domes would be stupid as shit. Which it would.
Say Canada and Mexico weren’t involved. What would our 5 extra cities be??
Seems like you could just use the cities that were finalists but not chosen
Phoenix didn’t want to host. Too much of a burden from FIFA with other demands or something that they didn’t want to pay for.
I didn’t expect this reaction to using modern domes . I guess people enjoy sweating their ass off. understand not liking it for Baseball but not neutral site futbol or football
Dallas is the only one without a retractable roof. But its not like the Silverdome lacked quality matches in 1994.
anti-dome people have never watched sports in florida
I feel okay about that tbh
Expected but glad it’s official
I live in Mississippi and have worked/watched numerous games down there.
I’m not anti dome, I’m anti soccer in domes.
Just fucking make it 64 if you’re gonna go this route FIFA
are they shipping in real grass or something?
It's the largest stadium so I don't think it's that surprising.
It’s also the middle to the country
lol nobody cares about that.
This is the biggest thing for me. Would be shit if they attempted it on turf it even if the grass was shit.
It's been covered already. All the stadiums that have turf are putting in grass months in advance, in order for it to bind together
This. Is. Hilarious.
good. Should be hosted by a real city not a field of suburbs
seems like they will just move the final to NJ
is this a shot at LA I don't understand?
probably more so at Carson
SoFi is not in a "Field of Suburbs"
Never heard of a field of suburbs before
SoFi is in Inglewood, a relevant distinction if you’re trying to make some dumb argument that New York’s proximity makes MetLife a better option
it was the less popular sequel to Fields of Dream
They haven't decided where it is yet, assume it's between Sofi, Jerryworld, and Met Life
