Montreal to co-host 2026 World Cup

4505072383 United States Mexico & Canada Bid Wins Vote For 2026 World Cup

Although it would be the first tournament to be hosted by three nations, the vast majority of games will be held in the US.

Mexico will once again enjoy itself this summer, as the 2018 tournament prepares to kick off on Thursday, but there has been a bitter taste in many Americans' mouths since the U.S. Men's National Team's failure in the build up to Russian Federation.

Football's showpiece event will return to the North American continent for the first time since 1994 when the United States hosted the tournament.

"Hosting a FIFA World Cup is an extraordinary honor and privilege", Steven Reed, President of Canada Soccer, said in a statement. We congratulate all of those who worked tirelessly to bring the World Cup back to North America and thank the countries that voted for the United Bid, and for their belief in our vision for the future of the sport in our region. Canada, which has only qualified for the World Cup once, in 1986, has hosted a number of previous Federation Internationale de Football Association events, including the 2015 Women's World Cup.

In a vote of more than 200 member nations of soccer's governing body in Moscow, the so-called United Bid beat out Morocco, 134-65.

Canada and Mexico have already named its three host cities.

I knew it, I was the only one. "I don't need to worry about the war stuff, I don't know anything about that", he said. Nam said Seoul welcomed the news that President Trump had "sufficiently expressed" his trust in Kim.

Of the 16 host cities, 10 will be in the United States while the remainder will be split evenly between Canada and Mexico.

Of the 80 games, 10 matches will be held in Canada, 10 in Mexico and 60 in the US with the final played at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, home to the NFL's New York Giants and New York Jets. "Why should we be supporting these countries when they don't support us (including at the United Nations)?" he wrote.

The Kremlin said on Wednesday that Russian President Vladimir Putin would be glad to host everyone in Moscow, when asked if he would invite high-ranking US officials. It was all for wearing that jersey, to represent my country and get us to a World Cup. The only other World Cup played in more than one country was in the 2002 event shared by South Korea and Japan.

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. Both bids were of a very high quality and we welcome the fact that the bidding process was both open and transparent. "The merits of the bid, we feel we have a compelling proposal".

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

Canada's only appearance at the World Cup came in 1986 when it loss all three of its games and crashed out in the first round.
