Generally speaking, soccer is not the most popular of sports here in South Florida, at least not when compared to sports like football which is often responsible for driving many people to stay in Miami Beach condos. In fact, you’re more likely to hear about Miami being the host of a future Super Bowl than playing host to something like the World Cup. With FIFA scouting the United States for its next World Cup host, that may soon change.
The US isn’t the only country FIFA is evaluating as a potential host for the 2018 or 2022 World Cup, it’s competing against nine other countries. More specifically, Miami is among the potential cities within the US and its Sun Life Stadium is also the front runner in terms of where the event will actually take place. The Miami Beach Convention Center is also possibility and if things do ultimately work out it could significantly boost business for restaurants and Miami Beach condos offering hotel accommodations.
Officials from FIFA won’t be visiting Miami until September but preparations are already underway to try and make Miami as appealing as possible when the time comes. What are the odds of Miami securing a spot as a host for the World Cup?
