Barring any hiccups tomorrow, city officials will officially make Baltimore a potential host city for the world’s biggest soccer tournament eight years away.
Baltimore is among 32 cities being considered as hosts for the world’s biggest soccer tournament in 2026.
Even if you’re not usually a soccer fan, you’d have to be living under a rock to not hear the now constant buzz about the FIFA World Cup. It lasts through mid-July for a month of brutal and riveting games that pit country against country in the sport that America loves to ignore, but that every other nation on Earth just plain loves. So, if you feel like stepping outside of our national comfort zone just a wee bit to get in on the action and see what all the world-wide hype is about, you may just need the right bar in which to eat, drink, watch, and yell at the screen.

Upper School science teacher and intramural field hockey coach Alvaro Salcedo will represent the United States at the 2014 International Hockey Federation Masters World Cup in the Netherlands. His trip is being partly funded by a grant from Gilman’s H.F. Williams Science Faculty Development Fund.
Salcedo is one of 18 field hockey players selected for the over-40 Men’s Masters National Team, which will compete against other national squads in Rotterdam from June 5-13, 2014. The team will debut against South Africa.
