Where Will You Watch the World Cup Announcement?
The time for waiting is over. The final arguments are being made during the night in Zurich (and I’ll leave it to your imagination what “persuasion” means in Zurich) and all that’s left is the nervous waiting. So, here’s your guide to the World Cup announcement:
When: Tomorrow December 2 at 10:00AM Eastern, 7:00 AM Pacific
Where: For TV viewers, you can watch the announcement on ESPN, Fox Soccer, and numerous Internet sites, including FIFA.com. Of course you can chat with our own Jonathon Feyerherm here on MLS Talk tomorrow (which is how I will watch the announcement) about both the 2018 and 2022 announcements. If you are in a partying mood, the U.S. Bid and local visitor’s bureaus will be hosting bid parties. The major locations are:
Atlanta – STATS Food and Drink (300 Marietta ST. NW)
Dallas – Dallas City Hall Lobby
Kansas City – 810 Zone on the Plaza (4686 Broadway)
Los Angeles – ESPN Zone LA Live
Philadelphia – Tir Na Nag (1600 Arch Street)
Seattle – FX McRory’s (419 Occidental Ave S)
Washington DC – Newseum (555 Pennsylvania Ave NW)
You can see all of the official celebration sites here. So, when the big day arrives, where will you watch the announcement?
