Bolavip:Let’s start out by discussing the prospects of Miami becoming a host city for the World Cup in 2026. Is it a hard sell? Fernando Fiore:… Well, it’s not as easy as one would think. Miami was not a host city for the 94 World Cup, and when it comes to FIFA anything can happen… in 94 due to stadium issues surrounding the other sports, Miami was not chosen as a host city then. One would think that for major events like these things get worked out, but in 94 that did not happen, and Orlando was named as the host city from Florida. So, nothing is guaranteed… Looking ahead we have a World Cup in 2026 that is not only good for the United States but good for the region as well… B:So how does one become a host city? What is the process of becoming a host city for the next World Cup? FF: What basically happens is that there is an open request that is made for those cities that want to be host cities. Every city and state have branches of government that put together their petition and i...
B: Speaking of Inter Miami, their first season had its growing pains, it was a first season where the team did not make the expected splash that they wanted. What led to that? Was it playing in a pandemic? FF:The excuse of the pandemic seems like an easy excuse, but one can’t deny that it affected the entire league, not just Inter Miami. Nonetheless it is a valid excuse or reason especially considering that the team was just starting to gel… there were players that were playing together for the first time and the pandemic interrupted what would have been a normal process of adaptation... B: David Beckham’s participation was also limited by the pandemic, no? FF:Of course, David Beckham’s involvement with the team was hit by the pandemic as he had to stay with his family in England. So, what happened? He was not able to be as involved as he would like... The pandemic exploded in March and that effected everything from the start. Doing preseason and MLS is Back tournament training via...
B:There is indeed a big expectation around the USMNT’s Golden Generation and what this team could do in the World Cup. What is the real expectation for this USMNT? FF:It’s a golden generation in regard to Americans in the top clubs in the world. Results will be the metric; results can hit you on the head and hard. With all the players we have mentioned (Pulisic, Zack Steffen, Reyna, Adams, Dest) yes, they are playing in top clubs and it seems like the future is bright, but it’s only bright if you qualify to the Olympics, play three or four really good games, get to the semifinals. The National team qualifies for an important youth competition, does well, those players sign for top clubs. Those players do well at their clubs, come World Cup qualifying the team qualifies with a strong base, playing well, generating a buzz, and beating the competition (CONCACAF)... We should be able to beat these teams (CONCACAF) with all the infrastructure that this country has. But then when the Olym...
B:When you started covering the game in the 90’s you could count on one hand how many networks consistently showed soccer in the U.S., today the landscape is quite different, tell me a bit about this, how has the landscape of sports broadcasting changed? FF:What happened is I saw the influx of money that was being allocated to sports back then. Not just soccer all the sports, sports began to transcend from just being a game and local news coverage from niche to mainstream… I mean when ESPN started it didn’t start out showcasing the biggest sporting events, there was darts coverage on ESPN to fill space… What happened in the last 20 years is the demand has opened up so much for the product that there is television, streaming, social media and all the buzz around the game. There is a super offer and from mainstream we have gotten back down to niche but with a lot of investment. Who would have thought that Paramount+ would buy the rights for Argentine Soccer? Today the fan has a menu t...
