Bring the World Cup to Seattle
WCB

Washington Youth Soccer is donating $100,000 to support the United States' bid to host the FIFA World Cup. Our goal is to double our donation, by matching it with donations received from our Washington Soccer Community — clubs, players, parents, volunteers, and other soccer enthusiasts. The USA Bid Committee is a non-profit organization that is fully dedicated to bringing the World Cup back to the United States and improving soccer's legacy in the US, but they can't do it without our support. Please make a donation to help us win the bid!
