US, Canada, Mexico trim World Cup bid host cities to 32

The United Bid Committee, which is pushing for the games to be held in North America, on Wednesday released its narrowed-down list of 32 potential cities, including 25 in the U.S. The list had been whittled down from the original 44 the committee was considering back in August.

And in nine years, Atlanta could reach the apex of the world's most popular game, as it's been revealed the city could potentially host a FIFA World Cup match in 2026. The Canadian cities of Ottawa and Regina, Saskatchawan, also were eliminated. Of those, six (Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Atlanta, Foxborough and Seattle) have been proposed using venues now used by MLS teams.

Stadiums under consideration in the USA include several venues used in the 1994 World Cup like the Pasadena Rose Bowl. Other cities could play a role by hosting teams. Canada, the USA and Mexico have hosted 13 FIFA World Cups in the past, which have all set attendance records. But they face opposition from Morocco which has announced officially that it is trying for the fifth time to stage the tournament even though ultimately it may prove to be a token challenge. In January 2010, Jacksonville also failed to clear the third round of cuts in the American bid for 2018 and 2022, which eventually failed in a controversial vote from world soccer governing body Federation Internationale de Football Association.
