In a brief detour from the World Cup in South Africa, I present this new information: I urge you all to take part in bringing the World Cup tournament back to the United States. In 1994 we set a [then] new record for world cup attendance. Our beautiful cities, large stadiums, and sports fever all helped to achieve that goal; however, more importantly, it allowed soccer to reach a new found popularity in the States. The MLS (Major League Soccer) was created a few years later and has since expanded into a large league with professional teams all across the nation, and more are being added! ESPN, a station that once neglected soccer, has begun showing weekly games, and other soccer specific networks have appeared to present twenty-four hour access to the latest games around the world.
We have the stadiums, we have the fans, and we have the desire. Let as come together to show the world how much we desire to host the world’s biggest tournament once again.
