    So how are they going to handle the CONCACAF qualification?

    3 co-host means 3 automatic entrance into the World Cup yes? USA, Mexico and Canada... CONCACAF has a total of 3.5 slots generally (0.5 is a playoff).

    So is there a tourney for only 1 spot for CONCACAF or are other confederation losing some spots for this?

    The system is being revamped. The increased pool size to 48 teams mean each confederation are getting a few more spots:


    New qualification system including a Word Cup play-off tournament

    The expansion to 48 teams has been a key plank of Gianni Infantino’s policy at Fifa. It expands the number of places at the finals available to teams of every confederation, including guaranteeing that a team from Oceania will always make the cut. The new allocation of spaces is:

    AFC (Asia) – eight places (up from 4.5)
    Caf (Africa) – nine places (up from 5)
    Concacaf (North and Central America) – six places, of which three go to hosts (up from 3.5)
    Conmebol (South America) – six places (up from 4.5)
    OFC (Oceania) – one place (up from 0.5)
    Uefa (Europe) – 16 places (up from 13)

    In addition there will be two final spots available from a new World Cup play-off mini-tournament.

    its like a salon where learned people gather to discuss literature over a gin and tonic, some poetry is recited, and a critique of cultural happenings is conducted over petit fours.
    also the world cup is awesome, keeps the bullshit out of decent sports like rugby

    i know that but given how many years ago it was 1930 uruguay and 1962 chile. The populations were way smaller than today and not good air travel. I just imagine they would of done it in argentina in 1962 or brazil. I guess uruguay in 1930 okay it not like most world watch it like today they just hear results.

    South Africa and Greece had MANY problems to begin with, hosting the Olympics/World Cup was just a symptom of shitty decision making

    That would be awesome if I actually enjoyed soccer. Maybe if the field wasn't so fucking massive.

    Get out? In a city of 3MM, a 45k stadium will be sold out? Every venue in the US will be sold out for this.

    Toronto hwy's shut down when someone gets a flat tire, I really hope they don't host any games here -- the Pan Am games a few years ago were a disaster

    We don’t do bad in reading: above the OECD average, virtually identical to Sweden, Denmark, Taiwan and Belgium. Not too bad when you consider we have the deep Red states dragging us down.

    3 countries? Why? That'll only make it harder for the fans, it will be even more expensive to follow your favorite nation around. That's just stupid.

    Hopefully they will host multiple games in Orlando. That would be fucking sick to see some games.

    Well in the USA and Canada case, they will just have to use the football stadiums. They wont have to change anything. The ones we both have should have enough seats albeit not close to the pitch, but oh well. Mexico though will have plenty of proper stadiums. They should have more games there.
