United States, Canada and Mexico to jointly host 2026 World Cup

U.S. Canada & Mexico win vote to host 2026 World Cup

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

Six Saudi female teenagers slated to serve as their country's flag bearers at the World Cup's opening match in Moscow on Thursday will be replaced by Russians after their trip was canceled due to "logistical circumstances", organizers said.

Safe, rational and bountifully lucrative as the Federation Internationale de Football Association decision is to have the 2026 World Cup hosted by the US, Canada and Mexico, it is also disappointing for romantics fancying another tournament in Africa - and laced with contradictions, too.

It marks the fifth time the North African country has failed to secure the right to host the worldwide football tournament.

United States soccer president Carlos Corderio said after his bid's success on Wednesday: "It's a bit emotional for us today".

"Thank you so, so very much for this incredible honour".

"Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2026". Football today is the only victor.

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

Despite the latest setback, Morocco vowed to continue its bid to host the tournament in future.

He then escorted Putin off the stage and the conference - which announced North America would host the 2026 World Cup - stopped for an unscheduled coffee break.

USA, Canada and Mexico had been considered favourites throughout the bidding process, despite some suggesting the controversial politics of American president Donald Trump could help Morocco. The US, however, hosted the World Cup on its own merit in 1994, while Mexico have twice before organised the tournament, in 1970 and in 1986.
