    Mostly MLS stadiums, final and big games at NFL stadiums.

    The question is are purpose built soccer stadiums long enough to fit our rugby league field dimensions?

    I don't think dimensions would be a problem. MLS stadiums have hosted union games before, and gridiron.

    Probably similar issues to England with short ingoals but it really doesn't matter in the scheme of things (unless you're one of the journos that likes to dump on RL for minor small minded things constantly...)

    I love the stadiums below 30k. Similar to Melbourne's rectangular stadium size would be ideal. I've never really had a bad seat down in Melbourne.

    My picks so far would be , avaya stadium in San Jose, StubHub of course because we all know NY and LA will have games, I am gonna go with Rio tinto stadium in salt lake city, I think that would be a surprise showing market for games. Aside from those three west cost I would go with Orland MLS , red bull arena for sure and then BMO field in Toronto and ether BC place or the new stadium in Ottawa.

    That's so far, obviously we will see what comes with the next round of expansion for MLS, maybe Tampa bay or Detroit, st. Louis

    If you go with LA, the new stadium closer to downtown would be the better option than StubHub.

    San Diego looks a good option right about now

    That is true I forgot about LA FC stadium going up. That would be a better option then StubHub.

    If it was 12 cities they choose here is my choices-

    West coast-
    Vancouver - Unsure
    San Fran/San Jose - Avaya stadium 18k
    Los Angeles - Stubhub Arena 27k


    East Coast-
    New York - Red bull arena 25k
    Philadelphia - Taken Energy Field 19k
    Boston - Stadium under negotiation
    Washington - under contruction 18k

    South-
    Orlando - Orlando city stadium 25k
    Jacksonville (decent presence already) not sure the stadium fits the bill.

    Central/Midwest / Ontario
    Toronto - BMO field 30k
    Chicago - Toyota field 20k
    Denver- Dick Sporting Stadium 20k

    Others to consider if you drop Jacksonville-
    Atlanta
    Quebec
    Miami
    San Diego
    Las Vegas
    Columbus
