And after the shame and surprise of losing to Qatar for World Cup 2022, the U.S.is back and hosting the World Cup with Mexico and Canada along for the ride, 10 games each.

The soccer showpiece will return to the US for the first time since 1994 after gaining 134 votes, while Morocco got 65 at the FIFA Congress in Moscow, where the 2018 tournaments starts on Thursday.

THE WORLD CUP will be returning to the United States and Mexico as well as head to Canada for the first time after the United 2026 bid prevailed over Morocco. Their lone opponent was Morocco.

Canada, United States and Mexico have been awarded the 2026 FIFA World Cup after the United bid defeated Morocco by 134 votes to 65 today.

The United bid's plan called for each country to host one game on the tournament's opening day, with the "main" opening match to be in either Mexico City or Los Angeles.

"We're not missing our own home World Cup". Under the terms of the bid, Canada and Mexico will each host 10 matches.


The evaluation report also offers a "technical scoring" of the two bids, with Morocco getting 274.9 out of 500, compared to the United bid's 402.8 total.

Launched on June 1, 2016, Daily Hive is the evolution of Vancity Buzz and is now in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, and Montreal. Both the United States and Canada failed to qualify for this year's World Cup. For instance, Los Angeles may host the USA opener, Dallas is mentioned as a candidate to host the semifinals, while the final match is expected to take place in Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, just outside of New York City.

But FIFA president Gianni Infantino said CONCACAF, the governing body of soccer for North and Central America and the Caribbean, will have seven slots in 2026, and it will be up to CONCACAF to decide how to deploy them.

Canada's men's team has not played in the World Cup since 1986 but traditionally, host countries do get to play. "You can hear the accents; they're not Russian only, they are from everywhere in the world and you can sense the anticipation that the World Cup is finally beginning". There is also no National Football League stadium within Portland that could be used. FIFA said in May 2017 that the question will be answered by the FIFA Council at a later date, and no decision was made on Wednesday.

"Our Canadian kids have got a big opportunity and I think that 2026 makes sure that many of them that might have left our shores to play for other countries will stay".

There has been no formal announcement yet that the three co-host countries will skip qualifying, as has been the tournament custom.
