Looks like we can add Berlin to the list!!

I figured it out.

Bravo - you got it!

I've just added a hint to the quiz! See above.

They all hosted the World Cup

I don't believe Brasilia has ever hosted the World Cup, at least not as of today! The last time Brazil hosted was in 1950 and Brasilia had not been built yet.

Figured out something that they all have in common.

Awesome!

If you figure out the answer feel free to say that you figured it out but please wait to post so others can have a chance to try to have fun with this. Thanks!

Is this a soccer thing?
