FIFA and U.S. Soccer arrived in Philly yesterday to hear our pitch to bring the World Cup to the city in 2026.
Cheering fans stood along the driving route to the stadium complex and then welcomed the delegation to Lincoln Financial Field.
But by far the best part was this video, featuring Philly’s sports elite and just kids from the neighborhood:
