Stillitano: Trump could prevent US hosting 2026 World Cup

Makes Statement0 Comments

Stillitano tells delegates at Soccerex Global Convention in Manchester :

Every day I wake up and I see our president has made a new tweet. The only thing that could possibly derail it is some crazy action on the part of our government but I can’t even imagine that. It’s ours to lose. I can’t imagine we don’t have the World Cup. I saw Sunil Gulati – our president – was almost gleeful in talking about how this was going to be by far the most profitable World Cup. All the stadia are done already, all the highways are done, the train stations are done. The hotels are there in the cities. I talked to contacts within FIFA, UEFA, CONCACAF and CONMEBOL and I think it’s almost a given that it’s going to be in the US. I’d be shocked if they lost.
