Brad Pitt, the newest member of the Board of Directors for the USA Bid Committee, joins fellow Board of Directors member Spike Lee over the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Join Brad and Spike on behalf of the effort to bring the FIFA World Cup to the U.S. in 2018 or 2022 by signing the petition at gousabid.com/kc.
That's right, Springfield, Missouri's own Brad Pitt has joined the effort to bring the World's Greatest sporting event to the USA. He, along with over 400,000 other people (nearly 20,000 of which support Kansas City becoming a host city) have signed the petition stating their support for the bid. Sign up today and let FIFA know you want the 2018 or 2022 World Cup here on American soil!
“Soccer is a truly global sport and the opportunity to join the effort to have the U.S. host the world’s greatest sporting event again is a great honor,” said Pitt. “FIFA has set a world standard for using sport as a tool for positive social change and I’m proud to be associated with a United States World Cup Bid that has so ardently adhered to the principles established by FIFA.”
Pitt, a Springfield, MO native, went to the same high school (Springfield Kickapoo) as Wizards midfielder Jack Jewsbury.
