US, Mexico and Canada to make joint bid for 2026 World Cup

Frederick Owens | 09 April, 2017, 04:21

Soccer bosses in the United States, Mexico and Canada plan to "rise above" the policies and rhetoric of President Donald Trump and launch a joint bid to host the 2026 World Cup. Press releases from CONCACAF and the soccer governing bodies promised a "historic announcement".

Sports Illustrated's Grant Wahl reported in March that the usa would officially announce a bid this month, likely with Mexico and the US, and that the CONCACAF region was the favourite to host the world's largest sporting event.

The 2026 tournament will be the first of the expanded format.

The worldwide soccer tournament will reach new heights in 2026 with an unprecedented 48 teams competing in 80 games. The top two from each group would then advance to a 32-team knockout stage.

Bidding for the 2026 tournament has always been part of Montagliani's vision. Sharing events such as the World Cup or Olympics ideally would lessen the financial blow for countries that want to host. "We've hosted nearly every other event".

"I would say let's wait until it is announced, but if that's going to happen I think that would be great for soccer here and everywhere in the world".

Requested by The Guardian if that's what he was referring to, Montagliani - a Canadian insurance executive elected as CONCACAF president in May - said football has to "rise above" politics of all types. The World Cup could return to the United States, alongside Canada and Mexico. Mexico hosted the World Cup in 1986, and once before that in 1970.

More details will be forth-coming on the 2026 World Cup bid, as we still don't know what the potential host cities would be. CONCACAF will argue its time has come. The country also hosted 2016's Copa America Centenario across 10 cities, building their portfolio of high-profile global tournaments.

The FIFA Council has already agreed on a four-phase process for bidding for the 2026 tournament.

Countries have until December 2018 to formulate their bids.

Federation Internationale de Football Association has already agreed that UEFA and Asian confederation members should not bid for 2026, given Russia is hosting in 2018 and Qatar in 2022. The proposal was unanimously approved at a UEFA Congress in 2014, but it isn't scheduled to begin until after the 2018 World Cup.
