How the FIFA Scandal Could Affect Georgia
Atlanta (WDEF) – The FIFA soccer scandal could have an impact in Georgia.
The world soccer organization has now suspended the bidding process for the 2026 World Cup.
FIFA is under investigation for corruption in the bids for the 2018 and 2022 tournaments.
So they considered this a poor time to move forward on the 2026 Cup.
The U.S. is expected to bid on hosting that tournament.
And Atlanta will be one of the cities making the bid.
The new Falcons stadium will be a big advantage for Atlanta, plus their history hosting semifinal matches.
FIFA hopes to pick the 2026 host city sometime in 2017.
