  • US Mexico and Canada to host 2026 World Cup

Delegates of Canada, Mexico and the United States celebrate after winning a joint bid to host the 2026 World Cup at the Federation Internationale de Football Association congress in Moscow.

The North American united bid won 67 per cent of the votes, compared to its sole competitor, Morocco, which earned 33 per cent.

"Football is the only victor". Instead of a small executive committee making the decision, this time it was done by a vote of FIFA's over 200 member nations. Whether FIFA also extends this courtesy to Mexico and Canada - the latter a relative nonentity in global soccer that has qualified for just one World Cup in 1986 - remains to be seen.

The World Cup final will be played in New Jersey's Metlife Stadium, which holds around 85,000.

As it stands now, 60 games will be played in the United States, with Mexico and Canada hosting 10 each. It will be the first time since 1994 that the USA will have hosted the monthlong soccer extravaganza, and will come two years before Los Angeles welcomes back the 2028 Summer Olympics. Canada has never hosted a men's World Cup, though it was the site of the 2015 Women's World Cup.

They warned "the amount of new infrastructure required for the Morocco 2026 bid to become reality can not be overstated".

"We may turn a blind eye to some petty offenses and to the nuances of our legislation", he said.

The 2026 World Cup will be the first competition where 48 nations will compete in the tournament, which is the biggest in the footballing world.

The two rivals bids each got 15 minutes to make one last pitch Wednesday, with the North American bid going first.

"The main goal of the joint activity is to minimize violations by fans in the regions where the matches will take place", Russian Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev said at the police cooperation center's opening Tuesday. The congress is to choose the host or hosts for the 2026 World Cup.

To cut down on travel, the US -led bid proposed having teams play all their games in the same regional areas. It will also be the first tournament to be hosted by three countries, Goal reported.

So Morocco concentrated its pitch on the country's undisputed passion for football, the notion that Africa deserves another World Cup after South Africa 2010, its far more compact offering and Euro-friendly time zone.

Nine of the 14 stadiums included in Morocco's bid were yet to be built, while the remaining five required "significant renovation or upgrading".
