Ahead of FIFA Visit to Kansas City, Sen. Marshall Speaks on Senate Floor
(Washington, D.C., October 20, 2021) – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. spoke on the Senate floor this evening ahead of FIFA’s visit to the Kansas City region tomorrow. As a big supporter of Kansas City being chosen as the host city for the 2026 FIFA World Cup, Senator Marshall said in part,
“…Kansas is home to some of the most devoted, fanatic soccer fans in the world that are ready to cheer on Team USA – and what better place than America’s heartland? The Kansas City community, alongside Sporting KC, has shown unwavering commitment to make this dream a reality. And Kansas City is no stranger to hosting major sporting events, from the Big 12 Men’s Basketball Conference Championship and NCAA March Madness, and plans to host the NFL Football Draft in 2023. We have great fan friendly facilities and something for everyone in the family to do. We have the lodging, public transportation, shopping, and dining options needed to make the 2026 World Cup a great success. The FIFA World Cup is the largest and most prestigious single sport event in the world and there is no better place for it to be held than Kansas City.”
