World Cup bid includes Edmonton, Montreal, Toronto

Canadian government backs United 2026 World Cup bid

Chicago's Soldier Field had been one of 32 potential venues on a list released a year ago by the joint bid committee.

Steven Reed, president of Canada Soccer and co-chair of the United 2026 bid committee, added: "Canada has raised the bar for women's and youth Fifa competitions including the most recent record-setting Fifa Women's World Cup Canada 2015 and as the only G7 country to have not hosted the men's competition, we are more than ready to welcome the world along with our neighbours in Mexico and the United States".

The potential host cities were announced in advance of the final bid submission from Canada, Mexico and the USA, to be submitted Friday to the world governing body of soccer in Zurich.

Kirsty Duncan, Canada's minister of science and minister of sport and persons with disabilities, said that staging the national team soccer tournament is "good for our athletes, it's good for our communities, our economy, our reputation as an worldwide sport leader". However, the city was all-in and hopeful that the federal and provincial governments would be able to arrive at a fair deal.

In fact, the Chicago Mayor's Office released a statement that largely echoed the stand of the B.C. government. "One of them being with Federation Internationale de Football Association to unilaterally change the stadium agreement at any point".

For what B.C. had to risk versus the possibility of getting a couple of preliminary round soccer matches and a couple nights of crowded bars, it just wasn't worth it to taxpayers. "Unfortunately, the inability to negotiate the terms of the various bid agreements did not provide our partners, and our community, with sufficient protections from future liability and unforeseen changes in commitments".

Bombs set off along Gaza fence, causing no injury; IDF tanks retaliate
Israeli warplanes and artillery struck a number of Hamas observation posts in the northern Gaza Strip on Thursday morning. Snipers have also been stationed along the border for that objective , along with other forces.

The comments are in stark contrast to the unified bid buzzwords of unity, certainty and opportunity.

Montopoli declined to speak on the Chicago and Minneapolis situations but said Vancouver "wanted to be part of (the tournament) on their own terms and conditions".

"While we support the prospect of hosting the World Cup, we can not agree to terms that would put British Columbians at risk of shouldering potentially huge and unpredictable costs".

The convention centre might have staged tournament-related events.

Duncan said: "Hosting major sporting events allows Canadian athletes to compete at home in front of their families, friends and fans". His hope is the three remaining cities be involved in the tournament. "There is no greater thrill than the prospect of hosting the 2026 World Cup and we are confident that Cincinnati will be a shining example of the soccer movement on the global stage".

The local advisory group pushing to get the bid made a presentation in January to city council but did not provide an overall budget. That number is now down to 23.
