List of Potential FIFA World Cup Host Sites Includes Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank has mentioned that he would like one of the FIFA World Cup host sites to be the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia more than once, and based on new reports, it looks like his lofty dream may become a reality.

 

Recently, soccer fans were delighted to learn that the soccer federations of the United States, Mexico, and Canada planned to combine forces to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup, which now seems not only plausible but also pretty likely to happen.

 

Of course, this means that the World Cup will have to be hosted somewhere nearby, and a new, outlined plan listed many U.S. cities to host the many soccer matches that would be held – with a few also taking place in Mexico and Canada.

 

One of the possible stadiums mentioned is the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Unfortunately, ESPN has stated that the overall FIFA bid process could take until 2020, so we won’t know for sure until quite some time. But hey, reports are looking good for Arthur Blank.
