The U.S. men's national team failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, but American soccer just received a massive boost: On the eve of the sport's biggest spectacle, FIFA members voted to award the 2026 World Cup jointly to the United States, Mexico and Canada.

"But when I was five years old, a country called Canada welcomed us in", he told delegates at the FIFA Congress in Moscow.
Here's what the World Cup stadiums look like from space. We are ready made.
The Fédération Internationale de Football Association, or FIFA, announced North America beat out Morocco. "We're on the map all the time, but we've got to keep putting this city and country on the map and to do it in the sporting world - in the soccer, football world - is a huge opportunity to expose this city and this country to literally billions of people, to attract thousands of tourists to come here".
