United States, Canada and Mexico awarded 2026 World Cup

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.
The North American bid beat competition from Morocco, which was hoping to become just the second African country to host soccer's biggest global tournament.
CONCACAF, the governing body for soccer in North America, Central America and the Caribbean, has seven slots in the World Cup.
"They have at their disposal not only the financial resources but, more importantly, the policing and security resources to make sure we do that well", he said.
Rosannie Filato, the member of Montreal's executive committee responsible for sports and recreation, said that because there are only three Canadian cities included in the bid, she believes Montreal has a good chance of being selected. Luis Rubiales was not present at the FIFA Congress in Moscow, the RFEF president instead in Krasnodar to deliver the news that Julen Lopetegui had been sacked as coach just two days before their opening game with Portugal.
"What can really be the legacy, whether we host matches or are just involved with this in some other grand scheme, that can make sure that Baltimore and the state of Maryland have maximized the potential of being a part of the World Cup?". "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".
