US absence from World Cup a blow to sponsors, businesses

(Updated: )

The United States' failure to qualify for next year's World Cup is a big blow not only to fans, but also for the team’s sponsors hoping to profit on one of the biggest global sporting events. This is the first time Team USA have failed to qualify for the World Cup since 1986. And some fear the team’s absence from Russia 2018 could be felt long after the tournament’s final whistle.
