San Antonio (Alamodome) Cut from World Cup Stadium List

http://goal.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/0...there-were-27/

Quote:
The committee leading efforts to bring the 2018 or 2022 World Cup tournament to the United States pruned the list of possible cities on Thursday to 27 in the third stage of its evaluation process.

At total of 38 cities submitted detailed information to the U.S.A. Bid Committee before the end of July.
Quote:
The cities dropped were: Birmingham, Ala.; Cincinnati; Columbus, Ohio; Fayetteville, Ark.; Knoxville, Tenn.; Las Vegas; Minneapolis; New Orleans; Pittsburgh; Salt Lake City; and San Antonio, Tex.
Another blow to the Alamodome and the argument that it is a viable big-event venue for the future. To not even make the top 27 is pretty bad...
