Stashed in: Mexico, Soccer, America!

From a soccer perspective, the choice of location is not unusual. Rio Tinto is a beautiful soccer-only stadium that was built for Real Salt Lake of Major League Soccer. But in a broader sense, the stadium’s relative obscurity highlights the nomadic nature of the United States team. Unlike teams from many countries, including each of the other five nations competing in the final round of Concacaf’s qualifying tournament, the United States soccer team does not have a permanent home.

This reality raises two obvious questions: first, should the team have a dedicated stadium the way Mexico, for example, does with Azteca? And second, if the United States ever wanted to settle down in one particular place, where should it be?
