Brad Pitt Joins USA Bid Committee

Brad Pitt is the newest member of the Board of Directors for the USA Bid Committee, which hopes to bring the FIFA World Cup to the United States in 2018 or 2022.

“Soccer is a truly global sport and the opportunity to join the effort to have the U.S. host the world’s greatest sporting event again is a great honor,” said the 46-year-old actor. “FIFA has set a world standard for using sport as a tool for positive social change and I’m proud to be associated with a United States World Cup Bid that has so ardently adhered to the principles established by FIFA.”

Brad joins the prestigious list of athletes, politicians, and pop culture celebrities that are supporting the bid, including director Spike Lee (pictured here with Brad over the Memorial Day weekend), Gossip Girl’s Penn Badgley, rocker Gavin Rossdale, comedian Drew Carey, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
