US, Mexico and Canada win race to host 2026 World Cup

Major League Soccer released the following statement: "The decision to host World Cup 2026 in Canada, Mexico and the United States is a testament to our three nations coming together for the United Bid, and a monumental step in our collective mission to further advance the game of soccer in North America".

"On behalf of our United bid ... thank you so very much for this incredible honor", Carlos Cordeiro, the president of the U.S. Soccer Federation, noted after the announcement.

"Football is the victor".

There's no guarantee Canada will have a team at the 2026 World Cup, the first time it will be hosted by more than one country.

US, Mexico and Canada to host 2026 World Cup: FIFA vote

THE WORLD CUP will be returning to the United States and Mexico as well as head to Canada for the first time after the United 2026 bid prevailed over Morocco.

Italy failed to qualify for the first time since 1958, being the only one of eight teams to have won the competition who won't compete in Russian Federation. The United States is likely to have 10 cities selected to host games, while Mexico and Canada are expected to each have three.

Meanwhile, the United States hosted the World Cup previously in 1994 while Mexico hosted it in 1970 and 1986.

The 2015 Women's World Cup was played on artificial turf, prompting a human-rights complaint from a group of elite female players.

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

The "united bid" won out over Morocco, 134-65. "And the US-Canadian relationship right now is rocky - with both sides threatening a trade war", he said. Morocco had been a late entrant to the 2026 race and its projected profits were half of the USA bid.

The current plan is for the host 60 matches. 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.

"There's no bigger sporting event than the World Cup, and Nashville will be ready to host the best soccer players and fans on the planet eight years from now", Mayor David Briley said.
