"But I think where it had the advantage was the World Cup would be more profitable in America and it is a capitalist world". Let us know in the comments section below.

Foxborough played host to several World Cup contests back in 1994, at Foxboro Stadium. "There is nothing that needs to be built to bring the World Cup to Boston, and that is really important".

The United Bid Committee calls it "the most comprehensive and far-reaching hosting strategy ever developed for a mega-sporting event". During the next month, the men's national teams will compete in 12 venues in 11 cities around Russian Federation.

Liverpool's pre-Europe travels The Premier League has released dates for all 380 matches, but none have been allotted kick-off times as broadcasters are yet to decide which games will be televised. See a list of all the proposed host cities at the bottom of this story.


Foxboro has hosted several worldwide soccer events, including the 1999 and 2003 FIFA Women's World Cups, the 2001 CONCACAF World Cup qualifier between the United States and Jamaica, the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup, and the 2016 Copa America Centenario quarterfinal match between Argentina and Venezuela. We are grateful that our facilities and excellent infrastructure allowed us to be a part of that bid. Argentina suffered a heart-breaking loss in the final to Germany in extra time at World Cup 2014 in Brazil, and they'll be focused on getting back to the final this tournament.

Elsewhere, Manchester United host Leicester City, Tottenham head to Newcastle United, Liverpool play West Ham at Anfield and Huddersfield Town host Chelsea.

"Soccer is the world's game and we are excited to show the world what Houston is all about".

There's plenty of football left to be played before a victor is declared in Russian Federation, but there's a chance the most memorable image of the tournament has already been captured.


AT&T Stadium also hosted the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup along with several other high-profile global matches.

While Canada has never hosted-or even qualified for-the men's World Cup, it can count on its more experienced co-hosts and current NAFTA partners.

City host the first of the 2018/19 clashes, welcoming United to the Etihad Stadium on 10 November and our visit to Old Trafford takes place on 16 March.

But they will be aware that the Asian qualifiers look desperately ill-equipped to trouble Egypt or group favorites Uruguay, who meet tomorrow, and that there is still much to be done for the hosts to secure progress to the knockout stage.
