FIFA Reveals the Venue

Footie fans, particularly those from New Jersey, were quick to express their discontent over the inaccuracies, with some using humor and sarcasm to voice their dissatisfaction. Many criticized the errors while others were surprised that such mistakes could occur in an official announcement from FIFA.
