Hello USA soccer fans, Jerm here with yet another amazing update with regards to the USA's FIFA World Cup 2018/2022 Bid.

Earlier today President William Jefferson Clinton accepted an invitation to join the USA Bid Committee in the efforts to bring the FIFA World Cup™ to the United States in 2018 or 2022 and was named today the Honorary Chairman of the USA Bid.

I don't have to tell you the magnitude of this appointment by the Bid Committee, as President Clinton has been very involved in philanthropic and relief efforts all over the world.

The William J. Clinton Foundation, which is focused on finding practical and measurable solutions to address pressing challenges at home and abroad. In addition to his Foundation work, President Clinton has helped lead recovery efforts for several global natural disasters including the 2007 tsunami in the Indian Ocean, Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.

The announcement was made today at a news conference at the FC Harlem soccer facility, and took place on the field following a soccer clinic hosted by New York Red Bulls players Juan Pablo Angel, Chris Albright and Seth Stammler for students that use the facility.

This one gives me chills folks, as having President Clinton involved can only boost what is already a strong bid by the committee! For Full details on today's announcement, be sure to check out the article on the US Soccer Federation website.
