World Cup 2026 awarded to USA, Canada and Mexico

14 June 2018

These are the cities that we think will be included as hosts for the 2026 World Cup.

The socks are red and Montopoli wore them when Canada won the right to host the 2015 Women's World Cup as well as the 2012 and 2016 women's Olympic bronze-medal matches. That's clearly what happened, and they've admitted as such since then.

The winning bid, which should feature 60 out of 80 Games in the United States, will mark the return of football's showpiece event to North American soil for the first time since 1994.

The North American bid got 17 low-risk and three medium assessments when it comes to organizing costs, government support as well as human rights and labour standards.

In a statement Wednesday, Beare said she congratulates the United bid on its success. We now know who voted for whom, so there can't be any shady promises made on that front.

Morocco plans to use 14 stadiums, nine of which have yet to be built with the other five due for renovation.

Montopoli says there could be as many as 1,000 people in the room when the two rival bids make their presentations. "There is no doubt that World Cup 2026 will elevate the sport of soccer to entirely new levels and Major League Soccer is honored to be a part of this joyous day".

But more positive news is starting to happen. However, Shanks expects soccer's popularity to continue to grow in the USA within the next eight years.

How many teams will participate?

Earlier, US Soccer President Carlos Cordeiro has said his bid would generate $14bn in revenue and make an $11bn profit for Federation Internationale de Football Association. Not entirely said yes.

Anxious that rivals might try to turn the vote into a referendum on Trump, who is deeply unpopular in many parts of the world, organizers of the North American bid took pains to dissociate their efforts from politics.

Christian Pulisic will be 27 years old at that point. Matches in Mexico will be played in Mexico City, Monterrey, Guadalajara; games in Canada will be played in Toronto, Montreal, and Edmonton, according to Pro Soccer Talk. Because clearly on the business side, things are doing quite well, but the balance has gotten out of whack between the business said and the player side.

And De Maria suggested that an agreement had been struck for Estadio Azteca to open the World Cup for the third time, after the country also hosted in 1970 and 1986, but admitted that FIFA needs to give its approval. "Together-in partnership with our Candidate Host Cities, the Member Associations, and FIFA-we will use this platform to unite the world around football and help create a new and sustainable blueprint for the future of FIFA World Cups™". The U.S. hosted once in 1994.
