If the united North American bid is successful, it would be the first time Canada will partake in hosting the men's World Cup tournament.

The president of the MLS Vancouver Whitecaps says he's disappointed Vancouver won't be a part of the 2026 World Cup, but that Canada's host role is bigger than its cities.

In 2010, the USA was a finalist to host the 2020 World Cup but lost to Qatar in a vote that was later discredited - but not reversed - because of widespread corruption in FIFA's ranks.

Jacksonville was named among the initial candidates to host games in the 80-game competition, but the city was cut from the candidate list in October 2017.

President Donald Trump welcomed the news, tweeting: "The U.S., together with Mexico and Canada, just got the World Cup".

Both bids were given a last chance to make their case with 15-minute presentations in front of Congress, at the Moscow Expocentre, where the North America bid pledged their tournament would generate an 11 billion dollar profit, while Morocco said theirs would make 5 billion.


The VAR will be overseen remotely from a control room in Moscow throughout the tournament and, in a bid to control sweat levels, FIFA is insisting they forgo civilian suits and ties in favour of football shirts and shorts. The trio visited over 150 countries in the buildup to the vote, making individualized pitches to federations at home in North and Central America and the Caribbean, South America, Asia, Europe, Oceania and even Africa, where they managed to steal a few votes from some of Morocco's fellow CAF members.

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. The handsome game transcends borders and cultures. The United States is likely to have 10 cities selected to host games, while Mexico and Canada are expected to each have three. "Football today is the only victor".

The current plan is for the U.S.to host 60 matches.

"We know that we have the best stadium in the country", Iveson said.

"We believe strongly that this decision will be made on its merits", Cordeiro, the bid leader, told reporters. There was no professional league, numerous national team players came from New Jersey and California, watching live professional games from Europe was almost impossible, and the World Cup ratings from 1990 in Italy were miniscule.
