World Cup Bid –

America may withdraw a bid to host the 2018 World Cup and focus on a 2022 bid.  The move may increase the odds of hosting the World Cup because Europe has a strong chance of securing the 2018 World Cup.  China is making a bid to host the 2026 World Cup and that would also help the 2022 American bid.  A 2026 bid by China is likely to prevent another Asian country from securing the 2022 World Cup.  Generally, the same continent does not host back to back World Cups.
