Boston Tourism Officials Helping to Win USA Bid for World Cup Soccer Matches in 2018 and 2022
The Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau (GBCVB) is leading the charge to make the United States a host country for the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cup Soccer tournaments, and Boston one of the host cities.
Here are excerpts from its marketing campaign:
"With just under two months to go before a decision is made on the host countries for the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cup™, Boston needs you to join us in signing "The Game Is In US" petition to demonstrate that Boston has the most support to bring the FIFA World Cup™ back to the United States and our region.
"The FIFA World Cup™ is the largest sporting event in the world.
"Though Boston is one of the 18 cities to be included in the United States bid, ultimately not all 18 cities will host games if the United States is selected. Competition to serve as a host city is fierce and we need more signatures to move up on the city leaderboard .
"Whether you are a soccer player, a coach, a fan, or someone that just loves Boston, now is the time to show that the citizens of Boston and New England are passionate about soccer and our destination, and are dedicated to bringing the FIFA World Cup™ back to the U.S. and to Boston. Sign the petition today and encourage everyone you know to do the same, and when the 2018 or 2022 FIFA World Cup™ is in Boston, declare proudly "THE GAME IS IN BOSTON and I helped make it happen!"
