Thanks to assistance from the host nation at a FIFA Congress addressed by President Vladimir Putin.

While Wednesday's vote means that Mexico will host their third World Cup and the United States their second, England have been unable to win hosting rights since 1966. Now the level of Russian football is not great. Under the terms of the bid, Canada and Mexico will each host 10 matches. "It should be based on the merits of the bid".

Prior to Tuesday's vote, the United 2026 leader Carlos Cordeiro stressed that "this is not geopolitics" or a vote on Trump, but about what is in the best interest of football.

When it comes to the reasons for watching the FIFA World Cup, some of the popular responses among 2018 FIFA World Cup fans include "I love to watch the FIFA World Cup" (48%) and "To watch the best soccer players compete against each other" (34%).

A total of seven Arab countries, mostly seen as allies of Morocco, voted for the US-Canada-Mexico bid.

The United bid won by a 134-65 margin, with one vote for "neither" host.

Has there really been an outbreak of common sense at a governing body where the specter of wrongdoing has hung over decisions in recent years?

There is also the unlikely outcome that all charges get dropped, or that the defence reveals a plea bargain. He said: "He and I are meeting on the 18th of this month".


The 2026 World Cup will be the first time that it will be hosted by three countries, although most of the tournament will be held in the United States, including the finals potentially being held at MetLife Stadium, capacity 82,000-plus across the bridge in East Rutherford, N.J.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup host, Russia, is reportedly spending around $11 billion.

"They have made a decision among themselves but ultimately it will be up to Federation Internationale de Football Association to decide", Infantino said.

The joint North American bid was considered a heavy favorite from the outset and earned high marks from FIFA's bid evaluators because it will, in theory, require less construction and lower costs than the Moroccan bid, which carried an estimated price tag above $15 billion.

However, the North American bid also faced issues in the run-up to the voting.

At the end of the proceedings, FIFA President Gianni Infantino of Switzerland - who was narrowly chosen to lead the organization two years ago, after former president Sepp Blatter resigned in disgrace - announced that he will run for reelection next year. Could a regional North African bid work with Algeria and Tunisia?

The president shockingly blamed age-old ally Canada for a disastrous G7 summit, and his position on immigration and demands for a wall along the southern U.S. border has offended Mexico and raised eyebrows globally. That is something we repeated and repeated over again.
