US, Mexico and Canada to host 2026 World Cup as Morocco lose out

"We look forward to having the 2026 FIFA World Cup played in Canadian stadiums, and we are even more excited at the possibility of having CPL athletes playing on the world's biggest stage on home soil".

The United States, Canada and Mexico will host the 2026 World Cup, after the joint bid of the three countries beat Morocco.

The North American bid was awarded the 2026 World Cup by a 134-65 vote over Morocco, which had thrown itself into the mix on the last day possible previous year, then tried to garner support be denouncing the United Bid and more specifically President Donald Trump.

They did so by a vote of 134 to 65.

England, like Morocco, knows the feeling of falling short in the bid to host the World Cup. The U.S. proposed to host 60 out of the 80 matches, leaving Canada and Mexico with 10 fixtures each.

In 2010, the US was a finalist to host the 2020 World Cup but lost to Qatar in a vote that was later discredited - but not reversed - because of widespread corruption in FIFA's ranks. The country hosted in 1970, but it also hosted in 1986 after it was originally awarded to Colombia, who couldn't host for economic reasons.

As nice as it is to travel and experience new countries, having the tournament come to our own backyard is a chance that simply can not be missed, especially considering it will be held in three separate countries for the first time in the history of the World Cup.

The United States will be joined by Canada and Mexico in hosting the 2026 World Cup, FIFA has announced.

Ryan Gaydos is an editor for Fox News. "'We are humbled by the trust our colleagues in the FIFA family have put in our bid; strengthened by the unity between our three countries and the CONCACAF region; and excited by the opportunity we have to put football on a new and sustainable path for generations to come".

"When they help us fight against corruption, of course, we are pleased", Infantino said. Citing a number of high-profile sponsors dropping FIFA, London newspaper The Independent reported that FIFA's 2018 World Cup sponsorship revenues were down $240 million.

For the first time, the World Cup will feature 48 teams after Federation Internationale de Football Association voted to expand the tournament in January 2017.

While the USA and Mexico have become World Cup mainstays throughout the tournament's past, this is particularly pertinent for Canada - who has appeared in just one World Cup (1986). "Congratulations - a great deal of hard work!"

"Thank you so much for this incredible honour". Morocco's bid, for example, received vocal support from France and a large contingent of Middle Eastern and North African nations.

The previous World Cup, held four years ago in Brazil, generated $4.8 billion for Federation Internationale de Football Association.

The key number is 104 but there is also the freaky and unprecedented scenario where both bids get rejected.

Out of the 53 CAF-affiliated countries; nine voted for the joint bid - Benin Republic, Botswana, Cape Verde, Guinea, Liberia, Namibia, Sierra Leone, South Africa, and Zimbabwe.

"But I think where it had the advantage was the World Cup would be more profitable in America and it is a capitalist world".

By contrast, Morocco appeared too hazardous as a potential host when all 14 venues had to be built or renovated as part of a $16 billion investment in new infrastructure.
