The RFI asks each city to declare its interest to take part in the bid process by September 5, 2017.A total of 49 stadiums located in or around those 44 candidate cities will be considered for inclusion in the official bid that will be sent to FIFA by March 16, 2018."

- Oof: "Pablo Mastroeni has been fired in his fourth season as coach of the Rapids with 12 games remaining in the season, the club announced Tuesday. Assistant coach Steve Cooke will take over as interim coach.The Rapids are 6-12-4 this season and are in next-to-last place in the Western Conference. Under Mastroeni’s leadership, the Rapids went 38-51-35 and finished last or next to last every season except 2016, when they finished second at 15-6-13, defeated the Los Angeles Galaxy in the playoffs and reached the Western Conference finals."
