USA-Canada-Mexico to host World Cup 2026

FIFA, global soccer's governing body, voted on Wednesday to stage the 2026 men's World Cup in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

Delegates at the Fifa Congress in Moscow voted for the joint bid on Wednesday on the eve of the first game of the 2018 edition.

Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal are Canadian candidate host cities for the men's soccer showcase, expanded to 48 teams for the 2026 tournament.

As nice as it is to travel and experience new countries, having the tournament come to our own backyard is a chance that simply can not be missed, especially considering it will be held in three separate countries for the first time in the history of the World Cup.

The 2026 World Cup will have 48 teams playing a total of 80 games - 60 are planned in the US and 10 each in Canada and Mexico.

"Football is the only victor".

The U.S hosted the World Cup previously in 1994 while Mexico hosted it in 1970 and 1986.

The country has competed in just one World Cup in its history, qualifying for the 1986 tournament and failing to collect a single point from three matches. "The 2026 World Cup is coming to Canada, the U.S. & Mexico!"

"I wanted to underline FIFA's commitment to the principle of sports without politics", Putin said during a FIFA Congress in Moscow while standing next to the World Cup trophy.

The 2026 World Cup in Canada, Mexico and the United States of America promises to be the biggest World Cup event ever held and it will be the first to feature an expanded 48-team field with a record 80 matches.

The result has been a jet-setting campaign from both bids who have traveled the globe in an attempt to win over the worldwide electorate.

Hasseltine said Monday that the focus of Baltimore's bid committee would now turn to tying up "any loose ends", from potential practice venues to the creation of green spaces in the city.

None other than disgraced ex-Fifa president Sepp Blatter, who is serving a six-year ban from soccer-related activities after he was one of several top officials ousted after corruption revelations in 2015.

Renggli said the Swiss has not yet decided when he would make his trip to Russian Federation or what game he would attend, but that he would definitely not attend the opening ceremony or inaugural match between Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia on Thursday.
