According to this article by The Sports Examiner (http://www.thesportsexaminer.com/the-ticker-exclusive-u-s-to-try-for-world-univ-games-in-2027-drama-in-russia-over-drive-to-oust-rusada-head-usopc-bill-now-in-house/), the United States is thinking of bidding for the 2027 Summer Universiade. Nothing has been officially announced, but the Sports Examiner article proposed Raleigh-Durham, Houston, Indianapolis, and Austin as possible cities, each with their own unique pros and cons. Competition for this edition could come from Budapest and potentially other cities. Sandwiched between the 2026 World Cup set to take place across the US (and Canada and Mexico) and the 2028 Los Angeles Olympiad, an American 2027 Universiade would certainly be a very interesting prospect. What do people think? Should the US go for it? Which of the four cities do you think has the best shot? Is there another American city you'd like to see host the Games?
Looks like there's a chance this may start to gain traction. A couple of weeks ago, there were rumblings that at least 1 US city was showing interest in the Winter Olympics. Now it appears the USOC is willing to entertain the thought.. USOC expects to discuss possible Winter Olympic bid So let's see where this goes, but clearly this is beyond the purely hypothetical stage where the highest ranking members from the USOC have publicly acknowledged the possibility.
