The guys answered your questions about 2026 World Cup venues, MLS’s Apple TV deal, and if the 1994 USA denim jerseys are ever coming back in #AskAlexi.

      New history in another stadium baby!!

  • Greg Perez
    Greg Perez 9 months ago +13

    If we are talking pure football history than it has to be Azteca stadium in Mexico for the world cup final.
    It would be glorious.

    • Johnny Chegne

      @Valk Storm, I appreciate your opinion. However, if you don’t think FIFA does things for money, you are naive. Take care and good bye.

    • Valk Storm
      Valk Storm 9 months ago

      @Johnny Chegne also I don't think fifa wouldn't want it to be about money more like history they did the same for Russia they didn't use there best stadium that was expensive same goes for Brazil

    • Valk Storm
      Valk Storm 9 months ago

      @Johnny Chegne no one would care tho about the stadium especially half of the usa pitch is turf and the last time that soccer stars did they didn't like it so the finals would be a horrible experience for players

    I'm excited for a match up here in Seattle it's gonna be magical

    Atlanta makes a lot of sense. Open or closed stadium 🏟 for the final plus it’s a wide pitch.

  • Phillip Suchicital

    What do you think of Sacramento's run into the US Open Cup semifinal and their current form in this year's USL so far?

  • Robert Lee
    Robert Lee 9 months ago

    The Offer is Brilliant!

  • freshtea
    freshtea 9 months ago +8

    it’ll most likely be at the SoFi

  • Jonathan Deitch
    Jonathan Deitch 9 months ago +4

    Who hosts the final is an interesting guess ...
    SoFi and ATT are actually narrower pitches than Mercedes-Benz.
    Do you go for that hundred thousand people, or the 77+ yd wide pitch?

    • XX2 Media
      XX2 Media 9 months ago

      @Jonathan Deitch and while that was remarkable forethought by Atlanta United owner Arthur Blank in respects to the club, it certainly didn’t help them for attendance purposes.
      There is a reason AT&T Stadium is considered “The Cathedral of Modern Sport”. While MBS is sexier, AT&T has similar amenities with a much larger capacity and a more preferable time zone to cater to European TV audiences.
      It just makes sense to have the Final in Arlington over Atlanta or any other city in the United States. Logistics, capacity, hotel accommodation, prior FIFA history, and relentless commitment from the Dallas Sports Commission make Dallas the crown jewel of FIFA’s 2026 global spectacle.

    • Jonathan Deitch
      Jonathan Deitch 9 months ago

      @rantanamo to some extent, yes. They can reach FIFA standard widths.
      MBS is actually rather wide at 77yds, it was built that way to accommodate the fast attacking soccer that Atlanta United intended to field

    • rantanamo
      rantanamo 9 months ago

      ATT addressed pitch size and capacity in their bid. That's why they are in talks for the final.

  • Robert Meadows
    Robert Meadows 9 months ago +5

    LA or Atlanta will probably host the final

  • Juan Carlos Huaylla
    Juan Carlos Huaylla 9 months ago +10

    FIFA Most likely decision: New York on Metlife because is the capital of the world and the most well-known city out of the three countries
    FIFA if it wants to show off: Los Angeles and SOFI Stadium
    FIFA if it wants to surprise people: Toronto..BMO field
    FIFA if it wants to relive the past: Mexico city Azteca stadium

    • Alexander Granados
      Alexander Granados 9 months ago

      Toronto's BMO field has no capacity to host the final.

    • WolfyEfren10

      @Juan Carlos Huaylla oh ok my bad lol I honestly thought u were saying that New York is the capital 🤣🤣🤣

    • Juan Carlos Huaylla
      Juan Carlos Huaylla 9 months ago

      @WolfyEfren10 i don't think anyone said capital of the USA in the conversation. But I know since I live in DC. 😂😂

    • WolfyEfren10
      WolfyEfren10 9 months ago

      My guy you do know New York is not the capital of the United States right. it’s actually Washington DC 🤣🤣🤣

    What has Jesus Ferreira really done to earn the job?

    • max Maxie
      max Maxie 9 months ago

      He has missed few clear cut chances which we expect him to convert some day. As we talk about other striker they dont even come close to those missing chance of Ferreira.

  • TuvingtonD
