The winning bid, which should feature 60 out of 80 Games in the U.S., will mark the return of football's showpiece event to North American soil for the first time since 1994.
The average stadium capacity for the tournament is 55,000, with the largest the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, best known as the home of the Dallas Cowboys NFL team.
"Hosting a FIFA World Cup is an extraordinary honor and privilege", said Steven Reed, President of Canada Soccer and Co-Chair of the United Bid, in a statement. American soccer officials downplayed the influence of politics on the bid. All of the World Cup games will be available here for soccer fans in the U.S.
The tournament is expected to generate $5 billion in economic impact for the 16 host cities, according to Canada Soccer. Final logistical details such as host city selection and fixture scheduling will ultimately be settled by Federation Internationale de Football Association.
The North American bid book published earlier this year proposed the 84,953-capacity MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, just outside New York City for the final.
