Another random nobody tweeting fodder…..why doesn’t someone here tweet that Vancouver is out of the running? Same difference
Looks like multiple sources now. If it holds truth, I imagine more will come out as we get closer to the actual announcement.
They have more inside contacts than I do given they report on soccer as their job. Could their information be incorrect? Absolutely. That said, multiple people reporting on it is something. Will be interesting to see how it plays out. If someone here is connected to the soccer world and has an inside scoop, feel free to post/tweet it though.Another random nobody tweeting fodder…..why doesn’t someone here tweet that Vancouver is out of the running?

The field, yes, but the infrastructure around does not compare to most modern arenas, including having all seats covered, seats closer to the field, etc...Commonwealth Stadium has a regulation soccer field.
why would the selection committee award games to a city that didn’t have a suitable stadium - among other things - and didn’t have committed funds in place to host them instead of awarding them to cities that have those facilities and commitments in place?A renovation for the stadium should've been proposed in order to secure the bid. Once the bid is secure, the funding could be found.
