"We tried very hard to get assurances and raised our concerns. Our game's in a great space".

The 2026 World Cup will be the first expanded tournament featuring 48 teams, up from the current 32-team competition.

In qualification for the 2018 World Cup, the U.S. surprisingly finished fifth in a group of six countries in the fifth round of qualification, only ahead of Trinidad & Tobago.

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.

Meanwhile, Montreal Mayor Valerie Plante said she is thrilled the joint bid was successful. We congratulate all of those who worked tirelessly to bring the World Cup back to North America and thank the countries that voted for the United Bid, and for their belief in our vision for the future of the sport in our region.

"It's up to CONCACAF to look into that and see how they want to organize their qualification for this and have a discussion about that in the weeks to come", Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino said. But even if that doesn't happen, Canada will be on the field in 2026, he told CTV News Channel. "This is a reward for our unwavering belief and commitment to the growth of soccer, and we will continue to make major strides over the next eight years to ensure that we stage an unforgettable World Cup".

210 members were present with 203 members entitled to vote.

U.S., Canada and Mexico to Host World Cup in 2026

"No one has said to us they're not voting for us because of who we have in the White House".

While Trump has been feuding with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over tariffs and policy after the G-7 meeting and with Mexican leaders about his proposed border wall, the heads of state are not heavily involved in this World Cup bid. Canada and Mexico are expected to each play host to 10 games.

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

"The people of North America have always welcomed me".

Meaning even if you know nothing at all about the game, the sport, the event, you can still sound like an absolute expert by confidently telling your friends that the victor will definitely be one of those who've either been there and done it or won it before. "Just a great history of hosting national and worldwide sporting events", said Needle.

"We are going to be ready".

Toronto's mayor noted that Canada had little chance of hosting the worldwide soccer tournament on its own, but will now reap the benefits resulting from its participation in the joint bid. There has been success on the women's side and the men's game has been waiting for something like this, he said.
