U.S. Bid Includes Miami Hosting World Cup Draw

Miami's role in the bid gets special prominence, because, according to AP reports, we've been chosen to host the draw.
Which is not really that exciting. The draw is when the officials split the 32 qualifying nations into eight groups of four teams each to play in the first, round-robin-style stage of the tournament. However, it is a pretty good signal that Miami will be included as a big part of the bid and should be immune if the federation is forced to cut the number of cities. Sun Life Stadium is tipped as a potential playing location.
FIFA is expected to decide December 2 which city will host both future tournaments.
