In a HUGE announcement, FIFA is bringing the 2026 World Cup to the United States! Now this is a very big thing for America. Soccer has quickly taken over the country and gaining fans from all ages. One place that soccer is starting to get big is right here in Nashville! We've got the Nashville Soccer Club and we are also getting MLS team too! Now what may come as a surprise is what city will the 2026 FIFA World Cup be in?
Well according to reports, Nashville is among the candidates to host the World Cup after a bid by the Metro Sports Authority and the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp to use Nissan Stadium.
Now the crappy thing about this is, we won't know anything until 2020! If they do decide to bring the games to Nashville, we would more than likely have 5 or 6 games. Regardless of how many games we get this is still a very BIG deal for Nashville and a really cool thing at that!
Nashville will be ready to put this soccer city on the world's greatest sporting stage in 8 years. Thanks to @visitmusiccity and everyone else who has worked to get us to this point. https://t.co/qID0e5rKWO— Mayor David Briley (@MayorBriley) June 13, 2018
