16 August 2017

Regina is one of 44 cities in the three countries being considered as a host venue for the event. The requests ask each city to declare its interest to take part in the bid process by September 5. In Montreal, that would be Olympic Stadium and Saputo Stadium while in Toronto, games could be held in Rogers Centre or at BMO Field.

Seven Canadian cities are included on the United Bid committee's list of 44 potential host cities.

A complete list of the cities being considered can be found here. The United Bid Committee, which is coordinating the North American proposal, released their longlist of 46 potential host cities that include Toronto, New York and Vancouver.

Next month, a shortlist of cities that will be part of the bid will be announced, before the bid is submitted in March, 2018.

The First Coast is officially on the radar for World Cup soccer. A final bid from each city will be due by January of 2018.

Home Depot Reported Better-than-Expected Q2 Financial Results
The stock witnessed 0.9% gains, -1.95% declines and 10.29% gains for the 1-month, 3-month and 6-month period, respectively. American Beacon Advisors Inc. purchased a new stake in shares of Home Depot during the first quarter worth about $100,000.

With a capacity of less than 80,000, Nissan Stadium is not a candidate to host the opening match or the final. The announcement was made by the United Bid Committee on the U.S. Soccer federation website.

At least 10 indoor stadiums in the USA and Canada would need real temporary grass to host games for the first tournament that will have an expanded 48-team format.

At present, Federation Internationale de Football Association regulations call for 12 host cities, but since there will be 80 games - Federation Internationale de Football Association announced the 2026 tournament will feature 48 qualifying teams - Montagliani believes there will be an increased number of host cities.

The United States will host all knockout games from the quarter-finals onwards.

"We were incredibly successful with the firm we brought in (Bush Turf), so that wouldn't be an issue", said Jenn Hathaway, spokeswoman for Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, which oversees U.S. Bank Stadium.
