Dear Soccer America: Could someone please inquire how AT&T Stadium would hold World Cup games? Would they raise the floor 10 feet, wiping out thousands of seats and premium boxes, to allow for a 75' wide field? Or do they propose that games at AT&T Stadium be played on a 58' wide field (still with little room for players taking corner kicks.)
This is worthy of reporting and journalism.
