Dolphins Stadium might not be good enough for the Super Bowl anymore according the NFL, but the U.S. World Cup bid commission just put it on the shortlist to host games for their bid for either 2018 or 2022. 

Previously the committee had its eyes on 29 cities, and narrowed it down to 18 today.  Atlanta, San Diego, Phoenix, Dallas, Seattle, Denver, Tampa, Indianapolis, Baltimore, Nashville, Kansas City, Houston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Boston, and New York are also still in the running.

Of course, the final list of venues that will host games in the massive tournament will be whittled down to about a dozen. Then all that needs to happen is that FIFA needs to pick the U.S. over every other city bidding.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
