During a news conference in New York on June 16, the World Cup sites will be announced.

The 1994 World Cup final site, the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, is one of two Los Angeles area stadiums that are in the running for the World Cup. The stadiums in Canada and Mexico are expected to be used.

16 total sites were envisioned in the bid plan. The announcement of site selections was pushed back a month.

The first World Cup will be hosted by three countries. The bid was selected as a joint host by soccer's governing body.

Sixty games are to be played in the US. Canada and Mexico will each host 10 games.

The cities of Chicago, Minneapolis and Arizona dropped out of the league because of the financial demands of the league. Charlotte, North Carolina; Las Vegas; Salt Lake City; and Tampa, Florida were all cut.

FedEx Field in Landover withdrew in April.

The Quebec provincial government withdrew its support for Montreal. It was replaced in April by the city of Vancouver, British Columbia, which said it had been rejected because it refused to comply with the requirements of the game.

The stadiums are the remaining areas.
