Only 3 teams guaranteed a automatic World Cup place from concacaf and one play off, assuming all these 3 will get automatic qualification that only leaves 1 place from 32 other potential counties strange that

That's not right. 6 teams will qualify with potentially one more through a playoff. 3 of those teams will be USA/Mexico/Canada.

That means 3.5 spots to play for from the dregs of the rest of CONCACAF. Most of those 32 you mentioned are tiny islands. Presumably Costa Rica will qualify very easily leaving two more spots to fight for from very weak teams (to go with Canada already there).

I think FIFA are upping the entrants to the Finals competition to 48.

There'll be a few air miles earned following your team round that land mass.

Oooh I'm going to try to get over for this.

We could couple it up with a NATA meet!

USA just qualified for a World Cup. Get in.

2022: small bit of desert.
2026: entire continent.

Both choices corrupt.

Its bollocks.. USA had it in 1994. We’ve not hosted it since 1966 ffs.


RE: 2026 WORLD CUP - GynnSquarePhoenix - 13-06-2018 16:21

It's also insane due to the size of Canada, USA and Mexico. Not getting into when Trump gets elected for a 2nd term, 2020-24 we will probably have walls, machine gun posts and shoot-to-kill drones on both borders and will not allow any dark-skinned players to enter the country.

This is the last nation I would have given it to right now.

I am not all together sure Q that we bid for it although I understand we look good for a bid for 2030.

With all due respect Whits we’ll probably be pushing up daisies then me old Mucker.

England will be a post-brexit, 3rd world country by 2030. Not enough revenue for FIFA.

The 3 nation north america bid is all about selling t-shirts to a base of 490 million people.
