Philadelphia bids to host 2026 World Cup matches

U.S., Canada and Mexico to Host World Cup in 2026

The Bid Book contains all of the detail of how we would host the World Cup in either 2018 or 22.

Seventeen sites across the United States will host, including Philadelphia and East Rutherford, NJ, which will host the 2026 World Cup Final at MetLife Stadium. "And the US-Canadian relationship right now is rocky - with both sides threatening a trade war", he said.

The winning bid, also shared with Mexico and Canada, was announced early Wednesday.

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. They put in a huge amount of legwork, meeting with a slew of countries across the vast continent in hopes of securing a majority of the confederation's votes.

To do so would have invited ridicule when it needed to build or renovate the 14 stadiums it wants to use - a task FIFA's technical report said "cannot be overstated". And then we've got an eye on the pathway, the infrastructure, the development system to make sure that the right players arrive at the right time in 2026.

Fifa's president, Gianni Infantino, looked opportunistically quick to immediately put himself forward for re-election next year, and he was followed by United States president Donald Trump with a self-congratulatory tweet.

But more positive news is starting to happen.

I know a lot of people today who work in the soccer business who now feel like they're going to have a job for the next eight years, or at least the chance at getting a job because there's going to be a lot around that.

"Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2026", Carlos Cordiero, the president of US Soccer told the delegates from more than 200 member nations following the vote. Not entirely said yes.

Federation Internationale de Football Association will select up to 16 host cities from the 23 candidates proposed in the North American bid.

Christian Pulisic will be 27 years old at that point.

"I mean, this is like football Christmas for anyone", said the coach of Canada's national team, John Herdman, who called the decision a game-changer that will help stop the exodus of Canadian soccer players.

That was one thing that sort of popped up to me today.

And De Maria suggested that an agreement had been struck for Estadio Azteca to open the World Cup for the third time, after the country also hosted in 1970 and 1986, but admitted that FIFA needs to give its approval.

"Not to comment really on the USA side, but maybe they felt that they wished to go further in some additional letters which they had received from their president", he added.
