FIFA World Cup in Indiana in 2018 or 2022?

The USA Bid Committee mailed letters last week to public officials and stadium operators in metropolitan markets across the United States in an initial step toward preparing a formal bid to play host to the FIFA World Cup in 2018 or 2022.

In all, 70 stadiums in more than 50 metropolitan markets are under consideration, ranging in market size from New York City, where the new Meadowlands Stadium will open in 2010 in nearby East Rutherford, N.J., to college town markets such as Lincoln, Neb., and Fayetteville, Ark.

Two Indiana venues on the list are the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis and the stadium at the University of Notre Dame at South Bend.
