Arrowhead Stadium could be the site for four games in the United States if wins its bid to host the world's biggest soccer even in 2018. Kansas City is now one of the 27 host city finalists.

Nine individual nations registered their intention to bid with FIFA by the February 2009 deadline: Australia, England, Indonesia, Japan, Qutar, Mexico, Russia, South korea, and the United States.

In October 2007, FIFA ended the continental rotation policy. Instead the last two tournament host confederations are ineligible, leaving Africa ineligible for 2018 and South America ineligible for both 2018 and 2022. Other factors in the selection process include the number of suitable stadia, and their location across candidate nations. Due to the number of bids received by FIFA, this World Cup is expected to be the most hotly contested bid ever, mainly due to the revision in FIFA's rotation policy.

The bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 began in January 2009. These will be the 21st and 22nd editions of theFIFA World Cup. The executive committee of FIFA will announce their decision on the two editions in December 2010.
