U.S., Mexico and Canada to host 2026 FIFA World Cup

World Cup 2026: U.S.-Mexico-Canada bid chosen as host

World Cup 2026: U.S.-Mexico-Canada bid chosen as host

VAR will make its World Cup debut in Russian Federation. Campos is a lifelong fan but says even if you aren't a soccer fan, going to a World Cup game is a powerful experience.

Morocco FA president Fouzi Lekjaa said: "I would like to reaffirm the determination of my country, Morocco, to continue to work for football, to work for the youth and also to realise some day our dream to host the World Cup in Morocco".

The current USSF president Carlos Cordeiro believes the 2026 World Cup will be a "lightning rod" for soccer in the United States. Although of no legal force, the letters were used in lobbying by the U.S. Soccer Federation as the North American bid competed against Morocco's.

Although it will be the first World Cup to be hosted by three countries, most matches will be played in the United States.

Decisions over which cities will be selected will happen over the next two years. Canada has never staged a men's World Cup, but hosted the women's tournament in 2015.

Did the players or president Florentino Perez push him out? "I know it's a unusual moment, but I think it's the best for all". He had been at the club just over two years, where he led them to three Champions League and a La Liga title.

Morocco were hoping to count on the support of their continent, but 10 African countries did not vote for their bid, including South Africa and Mozambique.

CONCACAF, whose president - Canadian Victor Montagliani - played a key role in the bid, called the vote a "monumental victory" for the confederation that covers North and Central America and the Caribbean.

"When they help us fight against corruption, of course, we are pleased", Infantino said.

In a mid-April tweet, Trump threatened to withhold support from nations that failed to back the North American bid.

Canada, Mexico, Morocco and the USA were exempt, while Ghana was absent after the country's government said it had disbanded its football association amid allegations of "widespread" corruption. Both bids were of a very high quality and we welcome the fact that the bidding process was both open and transparent. However, the French legend was also voted the best player at the tournament, scoring three goals in six games, including one in the final. As part of the joint bid, Trump pledged that those traveling to the United States for the tournament would not be subject to stringent visa restrictions. In the end it wasn't enough, and Americans fans can look forward to the return of soccer's greatest event in what can only be seen as a massive boost for the domestic game.
