    So many great things can come from either, but if you had to chose one, which would you chose? I would pick winning the World Cup.

    I would rather win than host, by a fairly large margin. I enjoyed 2014 much better than 2006

    SO obvious

    Look at last 2 WC:
    Germany increased in economy by winning WC2014, and so did Spain in 2010.
    Ironically. South Africa were even worse after WC2010 as host .. LOL

    I chose host because I'm a fan of Die Mannschaft but I live in the US. Of course though if you meant "your country" as in which team you support I'd say win though lol.

    But I wouldn't necessarily be upset if the USA won the WC. Aside from the taunting I'd be on the end of for not being a home team fan, I would see it as a good thing. Anything that makes the sport more popular and accepted in the US is fine by me. After seeing the increase in interest in soccer from the USMNT performance in WC2014, I can only believe actually winning the thing would have even bigger results.

    Why would anyone prefer to host a WC instead of winning it?

    Football is all about winning things. It's that simple.

    I think winning it would finally make soccer a mainstream sport in the United States.

    The number of births in England 9 months after England won the World Cup was 33% (3,500) higher than the same month a year earlier.

    No wonder Canada is the only country where the big parties all have a pro-immigrant stance. You want to win the World Cup in 3015.

    What would be particularly impressive is that the Cup is hosted in even years.

    I think it's obvious that 90% of the people want their country to actually win the World Cup, rather than host it.

    As for my country, Iraq, I hope we qualify for the World Cup. :(
