USA, Canada and Mexico to host 2026 FIFA World Cup

Members of world football's governing body FIFA have voted to award the right to host the 2026 World Cup to the United States, Mexico and Canada. The North Americans beat out a competing bid from Morocco.
The World Cup is to return to North America for a fourth time after FIFA members voted to award the right to host the 2026 tournament to a joint bid from the United States, Canada and Mexico.

The North American bid beat competition from Morocco, which was hoping to become just the second African country to host soccer's biggest international tournament. The "United" bid received 134 of the 203 votes cast at the FIFA Congress in Moscow, while Morocco polled 65. This was the first World Cup vote since 2010, when the rights to host the 2018 and 2022 tournaments were awarded to Russia and Qatar respectively.
The 2026 World Cup is to be the first to feature 48 teams, compared to the 32 that are to
compete in Russia and Qatar.

The United States, which hosted the 1994 World Cup, is to host 60 of the 80 matches, including those in the knockout phase, while Canada and Mexico will get just
10 group-stage matches each. Mexico has previously hosted two World Cups, in 1970 and 1986. Canada, which has only qualified for the World Cup once, in 1986, has hosted a number of previous FIFA events, including the 2015 Women's World Cup.

@Olajide: That would be in 2070. lolz. @Maduka: I think Trump will be out of office by then, right?

Oluwatoyin Obanla

Trump will pullout the US from the joint host because Treadeau stab him at the back and Mexico won't agree to pay for the border wall

@Obanla: You think Trump would bring politics into the beautiful game of sports?
