Accompanied by USA Bid Committee officials, U.S. national team captain Carlos Bocanegra will submit the USA bid book at FIFA headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland. The bid book is a five-volume set of 1,250 pages detailing the USA's plans for organizing the World Cup.

Nine bidders will present their documentation in ceremonies conducted in alphabetical order at 15-minute intervals.
