United States, Canada and Mexico awarded 2026 World Cup

14 Июня, 2018, 08:58 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

For Morocco, it was the fifth time it had bid for the hosting rights to the football World Cup, calling it "the dream of a nation".

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.

Venues for the 2026 World Cup, which is slated to be the first WC to feature 48 teams, will be chosen from 23 stadiums that now exist or are already under construction.

North America is optimistically promising to deliver $14 billion in revenue helped, while the tournament won't require major construction work required on the 16 planned stadiums, all of which already exist.

To cut down on travel, the USA -led bid proposed having teams play all their games in the same regional areas.

To prepare for the 2015 Women's World Cup, the stadium got new locker rooms, which are now used by visiting CFL teams, Jevne said. Matches in Mexico will be played in Mexico City, Monterrey, Guadalajara; games in Canada will be played in Toronto, Montreal, and Edmonton, according to Pro Soccer Talk.

Further clouding the issue, former U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati - who's still a member of the FIFA Council - told ESPN's Sam Borden on Wednesday that the council will have the final call on automatic bids.

The 2026 FIFA World Cup is coming to North America. He reportedly wrote letters to bid officials ensuring that "all eligible athletes, officials and fans from all countries around the world would be able to enter the United States without discrimination".

"We get satisfied too quickly", he claims.

One has to think all three will receive an automatic pass into the tournament.

The Fifa World Cup kicks off this weekend in Russian Federation, the undisputed number one sporting event on the planet, bigger than any of its contenders, generating more revenue coverage and eyeballs watching than all the other pretenders.

Field dimensions smaller than FIFA's standard for World Cup matches, Catlett said, were the chief obstacles.

So what about the tournament setup?

My prediction - no Asian teams will get out of the group stage.

Victor Montagliani, the Canadian who leads CONCACAF, wants the host nations to take three of the qualification slots reserved for the region.

The joint bid had been the front-runner for the 48-team tournament from the moment a North American coalition was first mooted two years ago, and there have been spells when it has looked like the only credible candidate. Again, nothing has been determined.
