The soccer showpiece will return to the US for the first time since 1994 after gaining 134 votes, while Morocco got 65 at the FIFA Congress in Moscow, where the 2018 tournaments starts on Thursday. As part of the bid, which was decided on by more than 200 member nations and announced at the annual FIFA Congress in Moscow on Wednesday, the US will host 60 games while Canada and Mexico will each host 10.

Mexico and the USA have hosted the World Cup for a total of three times between them and it's believed their profit margin was a key decision in the choice.

"Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of hosting the World Cup in 2026". Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey are among 23 cities vying to host them. It seems likely that a major late-round game will be held at the Dallas Cowboys' home stadium, but the United Bid committee has yet to finalize which cities and stadiums will host the matches.

The world's biggest sporting event could be on its way to Edmonton.

Herdman added that South Korea and Japan, the last joint countries to co-host the World Cup in 2002, both played in the tournament.

The FIFA World Cup is coming to North America in 2026. They are also set to broadcast the upcoming tournaments in 2022 and 2026.

Not only did she remind delegates about Morocco's lack of infrastructure but highlighted the North American bid's ability to deliver double the revenue at $14 billion.

The bribery scandal put the governing body on the brink, FIFA President Gianni Infantino told the congress ahead of Wednesday's vote.

With the FIFA Congress decision to award the 2026 FIFA World CupTM, to the football federations of Canada, Mexico, and the United States, the three nations will jointly manage preparations for the 2026 FIFA World CupTM until FIFA establishes their operations to manage the competition.
