^ You think the new terminal will be ready in 2021? The ways it's going currently, 2026 might be more realistic.

What makes you say that? We won't get the final, but seem almost assured of being a host city.
Assured????????????????
Since when?

Don't forget Mexico and Canada will also get first rounds games, and I think a very limited second round games.

Funny that where could be a host city in 2026 is somehow a reason to reopen an existing terminal.

KC is not beating out all of San Francisco, Phoenix, Detroit, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Tampa/Orlando/Jacksonville, New Orleans, etc
Cities with newer stadiums and the infrastructure for hosting super bowls and final fours. KC people are being huge homers thinking we are a top 20 city for the 12 spots.

FIFA wants to host games in huge open air stadiums with natural grass surfaces. Arrowhead is the 7th biggest on the list of all the stadiums. NOLA & Jacksonville aren't even on the final list. Detroit & MSP are both non retracting domes. KC is also about to have one of the premier training facilities in the country that they will want teams to base themselves out of for the WC.

We’ve already beat out Jacksonville and NO. They are already eliminated. Phoenix and SF don’t even have an MLS team and MN just got one this year. I think they would put a game here for the Midwest, getting STL and MSP people driving here than FL getting two cities.

FIFA prefers roofs over seating like in Europe. Look at all the WC stadiums in Russia, Brazil, South Africa, and Germany; they all have roofs over the seating to meet FIFA standards. Arrowhead doesn't meet FIFA standard's for roofing, and I also don't think it is wide enough either without removing seating.

^ So, offer to build a new stadium. Put it in North Loop. Host cities get four games and it’s said they are each equivalent to the Super Bowl. Introduces our city to the world, likely gets us international nonstops and gets SKC into the urban core where they belong.

^Sporting has no use for that stadium. The chiefs would use it if anything.

Children’s Mercy Park has the second smallest capacity of any MLS stadium and is regularly sold out. If they don’t need it now, they will soon.

Build a combination MLS/NFL stadium similar to Atlanta’s new stadium. I’d take that over even a MLB stadium.
