Seattle wants to be part of the 2026 World Cup soccer tournament. It was announced this week that the United States, Canada, and Mexico will host the international competition in eight years.

Seattle is vying to be one of the 10 U.S. cities to host the games in North America. KNKX sports commentator Art Thiel told KNKX Morning Edition host Kirsten Kendrick the city has a good chance but it’s not a certainty.
