Toronto Should Bid For 2028 Olympics Instead Of 2024


Recommended Posts

There may be some resistance for the SOG though the intense desire for waterfront redevelopment and new transit infrastructure in Toronto would trump that. The World Cup on the other hand wouldn't face much resistance as there are unique circumstances related to the Canadian Football League. All major cities in Canada have CFL-capable stadiums and teams, some of those stadiums are also capable of hosting professional soccer teams. However, a couple cities capable of hosting soccer or CFL teams do not currently have the funds to build CFL-capable stadiums (typically with 30,000-40,000 permanent capacity) without federal/provincial support. A World Cup would help make the CFL a truly national league (we currently don't have a stadium in Halifax, Nova Scotia or Waterloo, Ontario) and stimulate a more professional national soccer league. Currently in the Canadian soccer pyramid we have 3 MLS teams and 2 NASL teams, with 12 teams in our 2nd division. A World Cup would change all that.
