"This is a monumental victory for the Concacaf family, as the United Bid exemplified the strong collaboration, beyond politics and business, that now exists in our region".

The United Bid was endorsed by David Beckham and there will be 16 host cities across North America with the U.S. holding ten of the 16, while Mexico and Canada will have three each.

Renggli said the Swiss has not yet decided when he would make his trip to Russian Federation or what game he would attend, but that he would definitely not attend the opening ceremony or inaugural match between Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia on Thursday. "Our vision is of a world of opportunity for our Candidate host cities and for the global football community".

The expanded 2026 men's event, featuring 48 teams for the first time, will be played in 16 different cities - 10 in the US, plus three sites in both Canada and Mexico.

If the 2026 World Cup can propel MLS owners to make the necessary investment to build teams capable of winning over that considerable segment of non-believers, while convincing corporate America and the media establishment in the United States to buy in, there's no limit to how far the sport could go.

Noted sports writer Stephen Brunt called Wednesday's decision a "water-shed moment" for soccer in Canada during Sportsnet's broadcast, a sentiment echoed by former Canadian national team players Craig Forrest and Jason deVos.
