USA Might Host a World Cup reject Tournament
U.S. Soccer are looking into the possibility of hosting a summer tournament for nations which failed to Qualify for the World Cup in Russia 2018
A series of qualifying shocks have seen the USMNT, Chile, Italy, Netherlands, Ghana and more all fail to qualify.
Obviously not everyone can reach the 32-team FIFA tournament but those nations were widely expected to reach the tournament in Russia.
It’s been confirmed by U.S. Soccer, who are working alongside MLS’s marketing team (US Soccer Marketing), that there are now plans for an alternative summer tournament.
The proposed tournament would take place ahead of the World Cup, which kicks off on 14th June.
Unfortunately, that only offers three weeks between the end of the European season, which culminates with the Champions League final on 26th May.
