    From what I understand of science [fiction] by 2026 teleportation will be in wide use. Non-issue.

    lol

    FWIW games will be broken down by region to help with travel......Flip a coin to see where the country(s) you support end up in which region that you will have no chance to see them live unless you hop a bird.

    East region
    Toronto, Canada -- BMO Field
    Boston, Massachusetts -- Gillette Stadium
    Philadelphia, Pennsylvania -- Lincoln Financial Field
    Miami, Florida -- Hard Rock Stadium
    New York/New Jersey -- MetLife Stadium

    Central region
    Dallas, Texas -- AT&T Stadium
    Atlanta, Georgia -- Mercedes Benz-Stadium
    Kansas City, Missouri -- Arrowhead Stadium
    Houston, Texas -- NRG stadium
    Monterrey, Mexico -- Estadio BBVA
    Mexico City, Mexico -- Estadio Azteca

    West region
    Vancouver, Canada -- BC Place
    Seattle, Washington -- Lumen Field
    Los Angeles, California -- SoFi Stadium
    San Francisco, California -- Levi's Stadium
    Guadalajara, Mexico -- Estadio Akron

    Considering the group the US is in, any of the regions work as there isn't really a Concacaf or Conmebol team that would dominate the stadium. However, I'll take the West Region because it'd be way easier to maneuver through (although I prefer to avoid going through Guadalajara, just personal preference).

    I will bet you Mexico gets Central and two games in Mexico

    Of course this is all moot because by 2026 I'm surely going to be living in Ireland on the beach away from all the crap here, so I wouldn't be able to travel anyway.

    Thanks for the breakdown Moog and I'd guess I'd like to see the East games, regardless of who's slated to play.

    Hmmm. Making moves to another country, 1000% get it. A nice jewish ex-pat family in Ireland, adorable. When it becomes a netflix series I'll watch it. I've decided to stay and fight. Like quit my job, donate my car (to NPR because of course I am) buy a bike with a basket on the front and work (remotely) for a non-profit. 2026! Let's do this!

    Gotta live there for 5 out of 9 years and 1 year straight prior to application for citizenship. Better get cracking.

    I'm sure there's a exception paragraph in the immigration documentation somewhere that gives an immigrant "time" credit for the amount of Guinness Extra Stout and Jameson consumed over the years that helped the Irish economy at large.

    Clearly there are many of us out there doing our part for the Republic of Ireland on the economic standpoint. That has got to count for something!
