The 2026 World Cup will be played in North America

The United States, Mexico And Canada Will Host The 2026 World Cup

The United States, Mexico And Canada Will Host The 2026 World Cup

The opening game of the World Cup attracts a global audience of up to one billion people, so it is a real shame that Russian Federation 2018 starts with a game that is unlikely to provide a fitting prelude for what is to come. Canada has never hosted a men's World Cup, though it was the site of the 2015 Women's World Cup.

"As far as the manner in which they've conducted the recent bid which led to USA and Canada and Mexico being awarded the 2026 World Cup, I think that sends out a really strong signal that Federation Internationale de Football Association has changed".

It comes after the United States, Canada and Mexico won the right to host the 2026 tournament, beating Morocco.

The United States is slated to stage 60 matches, including every game from the quarter-finals onwards.

Preparation for the World Cup will not require major construction work because the 16 stadiums where matches will be played already exist. "We will host the most extraordinary World Cup. Our cities are ready to host today".

Morocco has largely avoided competing with the North Americans in a dash for cash.


In the closing days before the vote, Trump ― who won't be president during the 2026 World Cup, even if he wins re-election in 2020 ― promised that visiting players and fans would not face visa problems around the tournament.

Bid officials have given bullish financial projections, forecasting a record-breaking multi-billion-dollar profit for the expanded tournament.

"No one has said to us they're not voting for us because of who we have in the White House".

An English-led home nations bid for the 2030 World Cup is "definitely on the radar", says former Scottish Football Association boss Stewart Regan. The Spaniards were left reeling following the sudden firing of head coach Julan Lopetegui on Wednesday, but maintain steady +650 odds to claim their first World Cup title since 2010. United 2026 were always leading the race to host this World Cup, despite African nations and some influential countries like Russia, France and The Netherlands all throwing their weight behind the Moroccan bid.
