Canada-Mexico to host World Cup 2026

US, Mexico and Canada to host 2026 World Cup as Morocco lose out 2026 World Cup Voting: Ghana absent | Sports News 2018-06-13

The North American bid of the United States, Mexico and Canada easily won Wednesday's vote from FIFA's member associations to host the 2026 World Cup.

Also short travels between venues is attractive for Morocco against long-haul flights and cross-border travelling between three North American countries.

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

The wounds of 2018 may still sting for the USA, but for today at least, the Yanks, El Tri and The Canucks have won in the biggest way possible.

The 2026 installment will see the World Cup expand from 32 to 46 teams with the bloated format seeing a total of 80 games take place.

The 2026 tournament will be the first expanded tournament featuring 48 teams, up from the current 32-team tournament, which begins in Russian Federation on Thursday.

Although it will be the first World Cup to be hosted by three nations, the vast majority of matches will be held in the Unites States.

Trump had earlier warned that countries voting against the North American bid would suffer consequences.

In an agreement announced when the bid launched previous year, the United States will stage 60 of the 80 matches, including all from the quarterfinals on, while Mexico and Canada will get 10 apiece. But that is not carved in stone. "We are all united in football". Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal are in the running to be among the 16 host cities. FIFA's pre-vote inspection reports had awarded Morocco 2.7 out of 5 as potential host with North America scored a 4.

United States of America on the other hand will receive a giant share of fixtures based on its larger size, as Canada comes second and Mexico coming third. With a handful of games in Mexico and Canada but the majority in the US, the 2026 bid promises the richest and most lucrative tournament in the history of global soccer. "Our cities are ready to host today", said John Kristick, executive director of the United Bid Committee.

FIFA's hosting selection process was revamped in the wake of recent scandals enveloping the world governing body of soccer. Member countries were not required to vote on either bid.

The 48-team format would feature 16 groups of three teams, guaranteeing each team just two group games instead of three.

The United 2026 bid saw off surprisingly stiff competition from Morocco, the only other candidate, as delegates from across the world voted 134-65 in favour of the North American bid at FIFA's 68th Congress in Moscow.

The World Cup remains the second-biggest global sporting event after the Olympic Games and offers a ratings bonanza for broadcasters around the world. "If given the opportunity, I know they will welcome you".

Reed called Canada a "growing football nation that proudly welcomes people from all over the world". All of the proposed stadiums exist already.

Cordeiro, who was elected USSF president in February, said he anticipates those guidelines will remain in place in 2026.

In its film presentation, Morocco billed itself "a country with a heart beating for football, a country where football is more than a sport".

Federation Internationale de Football Association will publish each voter's choice soon after the poll and fear of retribution could influence countries that do not want to be found on the opposite page with the United States.
