The 2018 Fifa World Cup is due to take place from 14th June until 15th July in Russian Federation.

"Inglewood is not being bid to host the World Cup", Kristick said.

Those six cities - and 17 more - are on a final list the bid committee representing the United States, Mexico and Canada will submit to Federation Internationale de Football Association on Friday, the deadline for completed proposals.

FIFA's World Cup will return to the NY area, Los Angeles and Mexico City - and could visit Miami, Toronto and Seattle for the first time - if a combined North American bid wins the hosting rights for soccer's showcase event in 2026.

Chicago, which is the home of U.S. Soccer's headquarters, will not be part of the bid, nor will Vancouver, which hosted the 2015 Women's World Cup final.

"This announcement proves once again that Nashville is a diverse and welcoming place where soccer is thriving", Briley said. Chicago was the site of the 1994 World Cup opener but declined to be part of the US bid for the 2022 World Cup, which lost to Qatar in a 2010 vote.

Kansas City officials have stressed its ability to host global teams with the recent opening of Pinnacle, a state-of-the-art training facility that Sporting KC opened earlier this year.

On Thursday morning, Minneapolis, which had been on a list of 32 finalists, said it, too, had declined to bid for similar reasons. "The inclusion of Kansas City also showcases a strategic vision and a spirit of togetherness made possible by a coalition of leaders in multiple cities, states and municipal agencies".

Kansas City's bid to host matches, which was officially submitted by Sporting Club CEO Robb Heineman and president Jake Reid past year, has centered around "unity", a criteria established by United Bid. "Thank you to everyone in the city who has worked so hard to put this plan together".

The United Bid of Canada, Mexico, and the United States has projected 5.8 million tickets will be sold in 2026.

City officials said they're thrilled at the chance of hosting the FIFA World Cup at Nissan Stadium.

The bid lists 17 potential USA sites, the vast majority of which are current Major League Soccer locales or those tabbed for future expansion.
