    Guess ticket prices are going to be through the roof to generate that kind of coin.

    I never trust these predictions but this seems about right.

    Selecting Morocco would be the first time in half a century (at least) that FIFA chose less money over more.

    There is only one reason FIFA members would chose Morocco over the NA bid and its the Twitterer-in-chief.....

    Nope. The brown paper bags (or the we'll give you our stadiums bs) would be the only thing that gets Morocco this cup.

    Maybe they will use our great commander in chief as an excuse, but they chose Qatar, sooooooooo......

    Yeah like 413Blue said, only very heavy envelopes or bags will get Morocco the 2026 WC.

    True. But it sure didn’t help that the ol FIFA prez came out yesterday and said that FIFA can survive the lack of money generated from the Morocco bid if that’s what the voting body chose.

    Wtf?!? It’s something like $8B less - if I read it correctly - for an org’s executive to even suggest turning their back on that amount is a guaranteed greenlight to vote against the North American bid. The guys at FIFA liquify cash to shoot into their veins - there’s zero chance they’d want to even allow that (loss of revenue) to be a possibility, and yet somehow Morocco survived the technical report stage (where they had a cumulative failing grade) and is up for a vote.

    I really hope I’m wrong, but I fully expect 2026 to be a loss with Morocco winning and then hosting the biggest clusterfck since 2022 in Qatar.

    I’m kind of hoping it goes to morrocco. I want it to just become this big joke. And maybe the major nations will get sick of it and do their own thing.

    I'm sort of on the same cynical kick. I half expect the plan is that Asia and Africa will take turns voting themselves as WC hosts, and also vote for higher subsidies from Europe and N/S America to pay for it. And then like Adam, I hope Europe and the Americas split off, or more likely, engage in substantial planning for a split and leverage that into more power for those who write the checks.

    If ever there was a time to make Hope Solo personna non grata with US Soccer and fans, it’s now. Kick her out forever. Of all people to be undermining the 2026 Bid......

    She should be done with everyone for good. Such selfishness.

    I have yet to see an evaluation that was too far off the mark from the bids in 2018/2022/2026.

    I just think that the evaluation report should have a greater importance in which country get chosen, rather than geo-politics.
