Last quote by Sunil Gulati

We will bid together. The general parameters of that bid are a World Cup of 80 games, three-quarters of which would be played in the United States, 60 games in the United States and ten each in Canada and Mexico. The final decision on those things are up to FIFA, it's their tournament.feedback

Sunil Gulati quotes

It makes our bid stronger, in terms of the 209 members that eventually decide. There's a pragmatic part of it, and that's the pragmatic part. We clearly between the three countries have 40, 50 stadiums that meet FIFA's qualifications and criteria, as well as cities and hotels and air. The other part of it is we think it's terrific for football in the region and soccer in region, both for Canada, Mexico and the U.S., given the close relationships we have already.feedback

We think in this interesting world in which we live and the place we're holding this particular press conference and the Statue of Liberty outside, and a whole bunch of things along those lines, from a social perspective it's a positive.feedback

Regarding of anything else that may have been said during the campaign or after the fact, I'm not going to speak for the president on those. [Press Secretary] Mr. [Sean] Spicer gets to do that every day.feedback

We're not going to get too much into politics today in discussing American foreign policy or anyone else's foreign policy. What I can tell you is we have very specifically addressed this with the president, he is fully supportive of the joint bid, encouraged the joint bid and especially pleased with the fact that Mexico is participating in this joint bid with us.feedback

Building sports facilities that don't have a long-term use is not one that is particularly inviting for anyone. We have stadiums that exist. It's a far better solution than spending hundreds of millions of dollars, if not billions, on stadiums, especially that don't have use beyond the tournament.feedback

I couldn't be more pleased, with the level of support we've gotten from the president.feedback

This is a milestone day for U.S. Soccer and for CONCACAF. We gave careful consideration to the prospect of bidding for the 2026 FIFA World Cup, and ultimately feel strongly this is the right thing for our region and for our sport. Along with our partners from the Canadian Soccer Association and the Federación Mexicana de Fútbol, we are confident that we will submit an exemplary bid worthy of bringing the FIFA World Cup back to North America. The United States, Mexico and Canada have individually demonstrated their exceptional abilities to host world-class events.feedback

I think we realized in relatively short order there was a path to getting a deal done.feedback

We believe this is another important step to continue our longstanding efforts to drive the growth of women's soccer in the United States. This agreement helps to ensure the strength of the Women's National Team, provide stability and growth potential for the National Women's Soccer League, and over time strengthen the elite player development process at the grassroots level. We believe our continued partnership will ensure a bright future for our sport for years to come.feedback

You always get some positive change and positive vibe whenever there is a change. Bruce knows the team very well, and there's a lot of leadership in the team. The vibe is good.feedback

I think we're back on track. But it's going to go down to the wire for a lot of teams.feedback

It means the number of countries that can host it without building major infrastructure and stadiums is limited.feedback

Changes in technology and the speed of information and social media add the dimension of pressure that wouldn't have been the same for Bruce in his first go-round.feedback

No one likes to face the firing squad, as it were, in terms of media or fans that are upset about something, but that's a natural part of the growth of the game, and that certainly is a very big positive.feedback

Our fans know the game in a way that may not have been the case in such numbers 20 years ago or even 15 years ago. We have more educated, passionate fans with a way to express their views: social media.feedback

Really starting at the Gold Cup, we've had some very up-and-down results. The Gold Cup was a big disappointment for everyone: for Jurgen, for the players, for our fans.feedback

I don't view it as Bruce 2, but sort of Bruce 2.0. I think he's got far more experience than he did when he had the national team the first go-round. He's proven and re-proven many times at all levels of the game in the United States that he's an extraordinarily capable and successful coach.feedback

His experience at the international level, understanding of the requirements needed to lead a team through World Cup qualifying, and proven ability to build a successful team were all aspects we felt were vital for the next coach. I know Bruce will be fully committed to preparing the players for the next eight qualifying games and earning a berth to an eighth straight FIFA World Cup.feedback

There were considerable achievements along the way ... but there were also lesser publicized efforts behind the scenes. He challenged everyone in the U.S. Soccer community to think about things in new ways, and thanks to his efforts we have grown as an organization and expect there will be benefits from his work for years to come.feedback

While we remain confident that we have quality players to help us advance to Russia 2018, the form and growth of the team up to this point left us convinced that we need to go in a different direction. With the next qualifying match in late March, we have several months to refocus the group and determine the best way forward to ensure a successful journey to qualify for our eighth consecutive World Cup.feedback

We will look at it, we have got great relationships with Canada and Mexico, we also have a country with 320 million people that has hosted a World Cup with a lot of terrific stadiums and great infrastructure.feedback
