Currently, the United States is in the running to host the 2018 or 2022 Fifa World Cup. The World Cup is the biggest sporting event in the world-even larger than the Olympics!
Additionally, Cleveland is in the running to be a host city and has made it through the first round of cuts, if you will. Each city that hosts a World Cup game is flooded with players, families, friends, and fans! The World Cup brings people from all over the globe to the host county. As David Gilbert of the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission said, this is the ultimate event in the world and the exposure and economic development that it would bring to Cleveland is beyond anything we’ve seen.
Part of the process is for fans to vote for their favorite city to serve as a host site. Check out this page, enter your email address and zip code and register your vote for Cleveland. That’s all it takes.
