Coupe du monde 2026 - Candidature retenue - Canada, Mexique et États-Unis

Don't know how truthful this is (FIFA has moved the World Cup a number of times in their history), but it's interesting nonetheless. It looks like Qatar will lose 2022 but who will become the new host is really up in the air.

 

FIFA propose to move 2022 World Cup from Qatar to USA and Canada

 

Citation
FIFA have made a proposal to move the 2022 FIFA World Cup to USA and Canada. The hosting rights were originally given to Qatar in controversial circumstances and it has long been under the hammer of suspicion. FIFA could soon make it public that no Arab country will host the World Cup.

 

The chief governing body has put forward USA and Canada as the hosts to replace Qatar in 2022. Qatar on the other hand is still continuing with the construction of the ultra-modern stadiums for the World Cup, though it is increasingly appearing they would not be put to use anytime for the mega event. The decision to change the venue will be the first time in the World Cup’s 80-year history.

 

Qatar was in a cloud of suspicion over allegations of buying of votes and corruption during the time of voting. Mohammed bin Hammam, a former Qatari official for FIFA, paid up to $5 million to influential African leaders to garner their votes. According to reports, there is evidence that hundreds of faxes, emails and invoices were exchanged between Qatari officials and leaders around the world. Australia, one of the main contenders to the 2022 World Cup bid only registered 2 votes and were recently reported to be considering suing FIFA over the $40 million loss they incurred from the bidding process.

 

Recently, Jim Boyce, vice-president of FIFA, had confirmed a re-vote would take place if the Qatar bid was riddled with corruption saying, “If Michael Garcia, the investigating officer finds any evidence of illegal activity, we will discuss it seriously.”

 

Qatar has been subjected to strong criticism about the poor working conditions at construction sites of mostly non-Qatari people with a reported 1200 people dead and it is expected to rise to 4000. The International Trade Union Confederation had demanded the FIFA to impose a number of conditions to uphold the Qatar World Cup choice.

 

Sepp Blatter, FIFA president recognized that “it was a mistake” to choose Qatar as the venue and the international agency is very close to announce USA and Canada as venue for the event.

The Feds would definitely spend money on upgrading stadiums in this country, considering every other country that hosts the World Cup gets $$ from their government. Imagine the Big O, with its new lighting scheme, an open-air roof, a revamped interior and exterior hosting games of the World Cup? Spectacular.

 

An Expo, the Summer Olympic Games and host of the FIFA World Cup? What a trifecta. How many cities around the world have done all 3?

Notre stade est comme toutes les infrastructures, il vieillit avec le temps et aura l'entretien nécessaire pour en assurer la pérennité, FIFA ou pas. Ce serait cependant un extraordinaire coup de pouce et un incitatif puissant pour agir plus vite si jamais le Canada obtenait cette manifestation. On peut donc demeurer optimiste en sachant en même temps qu'il faudra partager la manne avec bien d'autres villes. A nous alors de tirer fort sur la couverte pour que notre part du gâteau soit à la hauteur de nos espérances.

Ce serait bien. je me demande si le Gouv. fédéral serait prêt à investir dans un nouveau toit??

 

Anyways, si c'est le Canada et les USA qui vont accueuillir la Coupe du Monde, vous pouvez être sûr que les gros matchs seront joué au USA.

Si FIFA l'enlève au Qatar c'est pour le donner à un pays qui peut l'accueillir en 5 minutes. Soit les USA qui ont zéro construction à faire et tant de stades parmi lesquels choisir.

Oui et c'est surtout que les USA ont finit 2e lors du vote des membres pour désigner le pays hôte donc logiquement l'organisation leur reviendrait. Ça serait trop génial d'avoir la coupe ici, donc le Canada serait qualifié de facto pour la compétition. :thumbsup:

      Complexe de soccer de Montréal : le concours d’architecture est lancé !
       
       
       
      3 juin 2011
      Communiqué
       
      Le lancement d’un concours d’architecture pour la construction d’un complexe de soccer dans le pôle sportif du complexe environnemental de Saint-Michel (CESM) a été annoncé jeudi.
       
       
       
      Situé sur l’avenue Papineau, le centre offrira aux quelque 40 000 adeptes de soccer montréalais la possibilité de pratiquer ce sport toute l’année. Le projet, dont le début des travaux est prévu à l’automne 2012, a été bonifié pour y inclure un quatrième terrain. En tout, 28,3 millions $ seront injectés dans ce nouveau complexe de soccer.
       
       
       
      Conformément au Plan de développement durable de la collectivité montréalaise 2010-2015, ce nouveau bâtiment vise l’obtention de la certification LEED-NC de niveau Or. Ce projet sera réalisé à travers un processus de design intégré, une approche créative qui permet la construction de bâtiments novateurs répondant à des objectifs de qualité, de fonctionnalité, d’économie d’énergie et d’efficience d’entretien.
       
       
       
      Un beau défi pour les architectes du Québec
       
      L’insertion du complexe sportif dans un ensemble naturel aussi distinctif que le parc du CESM représente un défi conceptuel propice à la tenue d’un concours architectural. Par celui-ci, la Ville vise la création d’une œuvre singulière, unique et remarquable.
       
       
       
      Le concours qui s’adresse à tous les architectes du Québec se déroulera en deux étapes : un appel de candidatures où les architectes sont invités à soumettre une proposition succincte, puis, dans un deuxième temps, un concept architectural et une équipe d’architectes.
       
       
       
      Les détails sur l'inscription, le lieu de dépôt et la date d'échéance seront disponibles le 8 juin sur mtlunescodesign.com et les documents par le biais du Système électronique d'appel d'offres (SEAO). Ce concours est réalisé selon les règles établies par l’Ordre des architectes du Québec (OAQ). Le jury sera composé de 10 membres possédant une expérience diversifiée dans l’évaluation de projets d’envergure.

      What would an international expert think of Montreal’s recent architecture?
      To find out, the Montreal Gazette took French architecture critic Emmanuel Caille on a walking tour of downtown and Griffintown. He also visited the $52.6-million indoor soccer stadium that opened last year in the St-Michel district.
      Caille, the editor of the Paris-based architecture magazine “d’a”, was in town to take part in a panel discussion last week on architectural criticism, organized by the Maison de l’architecture du Québec and the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC).
      Caille’s verdict on our fair city ranged from a thumbs-up for the pricey new soccer stadium to shocked incredulity over a new hotel annex to the Mount Stephen Club, a historic mansion at 1440 Drummond St.
      <figure id="attachment_783141" class="wp-caption post-img size_this_image_test align-center" itemprop="associatedMedia" itemscope="" itemid="photo url" itemtype="http://schema.org/ImageObject" style="margin: 0px auto 15px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; font-style: inherit; font-variant: inherit; font-weight: inherit; font-stretch: inherit; font-size: inherit; line-height: inherit; font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline; overflow: hidden; color: rgb(255, 255, 255); float: none; max-width: 100%; width: 1000px;"><figcaption class="wp-caption-text wp-caption" style="margin: -1px 0px 0px; padding: 10px; border: 0px; font-style: inherit; font-variant: inherit; font-weight: inherit; font-stretch: inherit; font-size: inherit; line-height: inherit; font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline; zoom: 1; text-align: right; background: rgb(12, 12, 12);">

      </figcaption></figure>Built from 1880-83 for Lord Mount Stephen, the first president of the Canadian Pacific Railway, it has been in the news recently after suffering structural damage during construction of the annex.
      Caille, an architect as well as an editor, did not comment on the structural problems, but he did give a visual assessment of the hotel addition, an 11-storey cement-panel structure tucked behind the mansion.
      “It’s quite brutal in the city,” he said.
      From de Maisonneuve Blvd., the hotel addition presents a view of three blank walls with a shed-style roof.
      “It’s astonishing. It’s bizarre,” he said.
      Caille was also perplexed by the front façade, dotted with small windows of different sizes.
      “What is not obvious is what relationship there is between this building and the mansion. I don’t see any,” he added.
      The hotel addition shows why projects should not be conceived in isolation, Caille said. City planners should have put forward a vision for the entire block, which includes an outdoor parking lot on de la Montagne St. that would have made a better site for a high rise, he said. Interesting alleyways and outdoor spaces could have been included, he said.
      “Everybody is turning their back to one another,” he said of how the different properties on the block don’t relate to each other.
      At the Ritz-Carlton hotel on Sherbrooke St., Caille said a glass condo addition completed in 2013 is a good example of how to update a historic building for modern use.
      But he criticized white PVC windows on the hotel’s Sherbrooke St. façade for their thick frames and mullions, which don’t suit the building.
      “That’s horrible,” he said. “Windows are the eyes of a building. When women use an eye pencil to emphasize their eyes, it changes everything.”

      </figcaption></figure>In Griffintown, Caille was unimpressed by the banal architecture of condo towers that have sprouted in recent years in the former industrial district, which is undergoing rapid transformation.
      But the former Dow Planetarium at 1000 St-Jacques St. W. caught his eye. Built in 1966, it closed in 2011. The city turned it over to the Université du Québec’s École de technologie supérieure in 2013. ÉTS announced it would transform the building into a “creativity hub” but so far the building has sat vacant.
      Caille said the domed landmark has great potential to be recycled for a new vocation.
      “When a building is dirty and dilapidated, people don’t see its beauty. You have to see the beauty underneath the neglect,” he said.
      Today there is a consensus that older heritage buildings should be preserved but it’s still difficult to rally public opinion behind buildings from more recent eras, like the 1960s, Caille said.

      </figcaption></figure>The Deloitte Tower, a new 26-storey glass office tower between the Bell Centre and Windsor Station, is nothing to write home about, in Caille’s opinion.
      “It’s developer architecture,” he said. “There’s nothing interesting about it.”
      Built by developer Cadillac Fairview, it is part of the $2-billion, nine-tower Quad Windsor project.
      That includes the 50-storey Tour des Canadiens, which will be Montreal’s tallest condo tower for about a year, until the even taller nearby L’Avenue tower is completed.
      Most people don’t notice the difference between good and bad architecture when a building is new, Caille said.
      But over time, the defects of bad buildings grow increasingly obvious, while the good ones become beloved monuments, he said.
      “People go to New York to see the architecture of the 1920s and 30s,” he said, referring to landmarks like the 1931 Empire State Building and 1928 Chrysler Building.
      “Good architecture always pays off in the long term.”
      Unfortunately, much development is driven by short-term considerations, he said.
      While a developer can walk away from a mediocre building once it’s sold, city-dwellers are stuck with it, he said.
      “For him, it’s no problem. But for the city, it’s a tragedy,” he said.
      “Today’s architecture is tomorrow’s heritage,” he noted.
      Caille is a strong proponent of architectural competitions, which he sees as a way to seek out the best talents and ideas.
      “It forces people to think and it shows that for every problem, there are many solutions. It’s a way of accessing brainpower,” he said.

      </figcaption></figure>The St-Michel soccer stadium has been criticized for its high price tag but Caille hailed it as an example of excellent design.
      The ecological building designed by Saucier & Perrotte has three glass walls overlooking a park in the St-Michel environmental complex.
      Caille said the stadium could be a catalyst for improvements in the hardscrabble north-end neighbourhood.
      During Tuesday’s panel discussion, Paul Goldberger, a Pulitzer Prize-winning former architecture critic for the New York Times and the New Yorker, said that unlike other types of journalists, architectural critics rarely have an immediate impact on public opinion.
      “Architectural criticism must take a very long view,” he said.
      “One learns to think of one’s influence as more gradual, as shifting tastes and judgment over time.”
      Goldberger, author of books including Why Architecture Matters, published in 2009, has written that the critic’s job is not to push for a particular architectural style, but rather to advocate for the best work possible.
      He said the time in his career when architectural criticism enjoyed greatest prominence was following Sept. 11, 2001, during discussions over the rebuilding of the World Trade Center.
      “It was a time when architectural criticism really was, I think, front and centre in the public discourse,” he said.
      “There it was so clear that an issue of architecture was intimately connected to significant world affairs and one did not have to struggle to help people understand the connection between architecture and the rest of the world,” said Goldberger, who now writes for Vanity Fair and teaches at The New School in New York.
      In a 2011 review of the new World Trade Center for the New Yorker, Goldberger said the design by architect Daniel Libeskind “struck a careful balance between commemorating the lives lost and reestablishing the life of the site itself.”
      The panel discussion followed the awarding of two $1,000 prizes to young writers for architectural writing on the topic of libraries. The winning entries by Marie-Pier Bourret-Lafleur and Kristen Smith will be published respectively in Argus and Canadian Architect magazines.

      </header>Fruit d'un partenariat entre l'arrondissement de Ville-Marie et l'Impact de Montréal, un nouveau mini-terrain de soccer aux couleurs du club montréalais a été inauguré vendredi, à l'angle des rues Saint-Alexandre et Saint-Edward.
      Cette initiative de MLS Works, Canada Soccer, Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) et adidas a donné naissance au tout dernier de 20 mini-terrains de soccer installés dans divers quartiers à travers l'Amérique du Nord.
      « Mon intérêt pour le sport est bien connu, a souligné M. Denis Coderre, maire de Montréal. Il est essentiel d'offrir aux jeunes Montréalais des espaces de qualité pour s'adonner à leurs activités ou leurs sports favoris. Je suis ravi de cette collaboration entre l'arrondissement de Ville-Marie et l'Impact qui permet d'offrir une nouvelle installation collective, le tout dans l'esprit de la Politique du sport et de l'activité physique que Montréal a adoptée. »
      « En tant que club professionnel, nous toujours dit que notre implication à l'extérieur du terrain était tout aussi importante que nos succès sur le terrain, surtout quand il s'agit d'aider les enfants, a déclaré le président de l'impact de Montréal, M. Joey Saputo. L'inauguration de ce nouveau mini-terrain, au c??ur de Montréal, va dans ce sens. »
      Chaque nouveau mini-terrain offre aux enfants des quartiers un endroit sécuritaire où jouer, encourageant la pratique du soccer dans les communautés locales, tout en soutenant la croissance de ce sport.
      Des joueurs de la première équipe du club, le gardien Evan Bush, le défenseur Kyle Fisher et les attaquants Anthony Jackson-Hamel et Michael Salazar ont tous participé à l'événement, tout comme les joueurs de l'Impact U13 qui ont disputé le tout premier match pour inaugurer le terrain.
