The 2026 World Cup will be played in North America

Ronaldo has won the World Cup twice with Brazil

The united bid from the three North American countries received 67% of the vote while Morocco garnered 33% of the vote, or 134-65.

Presentation of the Morocco 2026 bid during the 68th FIFA Congress at the Expocentre in Moscow on June 13, 2018. The United States will play host to at least 60 games, including the quarterfinals, while Mexico and Canada will take 10 each.

The 2026 cup will be the first of an expanded tournament that will include 48 teams instead of 32, putting considerably more burden on the host country.

After considering separate bids for the 2026 World Cup, the federations that govern soccer in Mexico, Canada and the United States chose to launch a cooperative effort to host the tournament in April 2017.

The US metro areas in the running are Atlanta (Mercedes-Benz Stadium), Baltimore (M&T Bank Stadium), Boston (Gillette Stadium), Cincinnati (Paul Brown Stadium), Dallas (AT&T Stadium), Denver (Sports Authority Field), Houston (NRG Stadium), Kansas City (Arrowhead Stadium), Los Angeles (Rose Bowl and the new National Football League stadium), Miami (Hard Rock Stadium), Nashville (Nissan Stadium), New York (MetLife Stadium), Orlando (Camping World Stadium), Philadelphia (Lincoln Financial Field), San Jose (Levi's Stadium), Seattle (Century Link Field) and Washington (FedEx Field).

The US last hosted the World Cup in 1994.

There will be 16 host cities split between the U.S. (10), Canada (three), and Mexico (three). The country's hopes of becoming the second African country to host the cup after South Africa in 2010 hit a bump last week when a Federation Internationale de Football Association task force scored the bid 2.7 out of 5 following an inspection. The United States and Canada did not qualify.

The North American bid had been deeply concerned by Trump's threat during the bidding process that nations that did not support it should not expect USA support on other issues. "If we do that, we have to do a good job of making sure that folks locally can go to those games, the practices, the qualifiers - all of it".

Cyberpunk 2077 Will Let You Pick Protagonist Gender
Cyberpunk 2077 is a narrative-driven, open world RPG set in the most vibrant and risky metropolis of the future: Night City. And though much of the gameplay is still under wraps, details are starting to trickle out here and there.

The qualification places available is expected to be as follows: Europe 16 teams; Africa 9; Asia 8.5, South America 6, Concacaf 6.5, Oceania 1 and, in normal circumstance, one spot for the host nation.

The World Cup is coming back to America in 2026.

It's unclear at the moment how travel will shake out and how far teams will have to travel for matches. It also has proposed not one traditional opening match but three (one in each nation). Mexico has played in every World Cup since 1990.

All of these on their own are excellent reasons why hopefully we can persuade the 24 voters on the Fifa Executive Committee in December to award England this great prize.

Each of the three host nations is set to stage a game on the opening day of the tournament. Seventeen American cities remain in the running to host games, while Canada (Edmonton, Montreal, Toronto) and Mexico (Guadalajara, Mexico City, Monterrey) have just three cities each in contention.

The new format would mean 16 groups of three teams.

The Rose Bowl and Camping World Stadium were venues in 1994.

Morocco Football Federation President Fouzi Lekjaa promotes his country's bid at the Fifa Congress in Moscow.
