“It’s almost like they never even got to play the game,” said Mike Krzyzewski.
“There was a lot of discussion that maybe there should be more tournaments and the people in charge of them wanted to move on.”
The World Cup has long been one of the more popular sporting events in the United States.
It’s also one of its most expensive.
According to the most recent United States Soccer Association (USASA) estimates, the tournament costs $1.6 billion in 2016.
This is on top of a $8.2 billion debt load that has been accumulating since the inception of the tournament in 1974.
The USASA has said it will spend $1 billion to host the 2019 World Cup, but that figure doesn’t include the $200 million that the USSF has said is necessary to pay for the venue, infrastructure, and training of the host nation’s national teams.
The 2018 tournament in Russia was also an expensive undertaking, with $1 million for the stadiums and other costs.
“It’s a huge cost,” said Brian Foye, the head of marketing for the USASI, which owns the US soccer federation.
“But it’s a great way to get to a sport that has a very large fan base and that’s been very successful in the world.”
It’s not clear what the 2024 tournament will cost.
The USSF says the bid committee is “very interested in the 2024 bid” but that the cost of staging a tournament will be determined after the US team is announced.
In a statement released Tuesday, US Soccer CEO Sunil Gulati said the 2024 World Cup is on track to be the most expensive in US sports history.
“We have spent over $2 billion and we are still working through the details of the bids,” Gulati wrote.
“We expect to announce our bids shortly, and we look forward to announcing our bids soon.”
What about the US Olympic Committee?
The USOC said it is still evaluating the bids, but its members are expected to vote on the dates of the 2018 and 2024 tournaments.
Meanwhile, US soccer’s governing body, the US Soccer Federation, said it has already reached out to the 2024 Olympic Committee.
What happens next?
Krzyzewsk says the US government has “done nothing wrong” in making the bid decisions, but he adds that the IOC’s move “is going to have consequences.”
“It makes the bidding process more difficult,” Krzyzyzek said.
It’s an incredibly competitive World Cup.” “
If the US gets into a World Cup in 2022, I don’t think we can expect to be competitive for any of those next 20 years.
It’s an incredibly competitive World Cup.”
The 2024 bid process is expected to be completed by late July.
