If Bill Clinton has his way, the American soccer community will be celebrating this morning.

The former president has been one of the leading backers of the U.S.’s bid for the 2022 World Cup. He — and the rest of the country — will find out if the attempt was successful when FIFA head Sepp Blatter announces the host at 10 a.m.

Qatar, Australia, Japan and South Korea are up against the Americans for the ’22 honors. Qatar — which would be the first Arab country to host the World Cup — is considered the favorite, with the U.S. running second.

Belgium/Netherlands, England, Russia and Spain/Portugal are up for the ’18 tourney.
