Seen through 2018 lens, 'NAFTA World Cup' in 2026 is, well, awkward

The United bid by Canada Mexico and the United States was awarded the 2026 FIFA World Cup

FIFA's member associations had 11 billion reasons to say yes to the joint bid from Canada, the USA and Mexico to host the 2026 World Cup.

Each U.S. city would host at least five matches.

"They have made a decision among themselves but ultimately it will be up to FIFA to decide", FIFA President Gianni Infantino told reporters Wednesday. With M&T Bank Stadium's $120 million renovation set to be completed by next fall, city officials will have two years to address issues both technical and otherwise.

The city has a chance to host warm-up friendly matches and perhaps other events ahead of the global soccer competition, which returns to the United States for the first time since 1994.

According to Yahoo, the bid called for each of the three host nations to play in the opening matches. "The merits of the bid, we feel we have a compelling proposal".

"We're looking forward to putting this soccer city on the world's greatest sporting stage".

The North America proposal, dubbed United 2026, was an overwhelmingly popular choice among Federation Internationale de Football Association nation members, receiving 134 votes to Morocco's 65.

The United States, Mexico and Canada will host soccer's biggest event in 2026.

What time is the World Cup on and where can I watch it in Hong Kong?

All matches from the Quarterfinal on, including the World Cup Final, will be played in the United States.

For the first time in more than 30 years, the US men's national soccer team will not compete, after failing to qualify. Several foreign national teams also arranged games in the United States - including Spain against El Salvador in Washington, Japan against Costa Rica in Tampa, Ghana against South Korea in Miami and Portugal against Ireland in East Rutherford, N.J. - on their way to the final tournament in Brazil.

England have previously failed in bids to host the 2006 and 2018 World Cups which, at the time, was partly put down to the FA's "arrogant" perception within the FIFA Congress.

It may still be eight years away, but the expectation of seeing Canada co-hosting, and actually playing in, a men's World Cup is already palpable. We've landed a World Cup.

The US hosted the World Cup in 1994, while the tournament has been held twice in Mexico (1970 and 1986). "They hosted games and there were no problems".

"But with the World Cup coming, we'll definitely develop some of those role models that players like Luis. can aspire to", he says.

"US President Donald Trump has disparaged Mexicans and wants to build a wall along the US-Mexico border".
