Canada, U.S, Mexico to host 2026 World Cup

2018 NECO GCE (Nov/Dec) - Revised Final Timetable (See Details) - Click Here

The 2026 World Cup will be held in the United States, Canada and Mexico after they beat Morocco by a margin of 69 votes to host the tournament which will be expanded to 48 teams for the first time.

The Moroccan bid used its final address to FIFA congress to point out that the country has a ban on weapons and would not hike up ticket prices to increase profit, a thinly veiled swipe at their rivals. But it was not enough to sway the room as they lost the vote, with the United bid receiving 134 votes to their 65.

The USA-led bid was judged by a FIFA taskforce to be vastly superior to their North African rivals on technical grounds, with a total of 23 stadiums, already built or under construction, at their disposal.
