The United States, Mexico And Canada Will Host The 2026 World Cup

  • The United bid by Canada Mexico and the United States was awarded the 2026 FIFA World Cup

The 68th FIFA Congress will determine the site of the 2026 tournament, selecting from a joint North American bid submitted by Canada, the United States and Mexico, or a bid from Morocco.

But because the city has yet to be confirmed as an official Canadian host, a venue can not be finalized.

"FIFA could not provide a basic level of certainty on some major unknowns that put our city and taxpayers at risk".

Toronto, Montreal and Edmonton are now the only Canadian cities that could host matches.

The jubilant head coach of the Canadian men's national soccer team says the squad will play in the 2026 World Cup hosted by North America whether or not Federation Internationale de Football Association grants an automatic entry to the three host nations. "As a result of these three nations and countless individuals collaborating to deliver an excellent bid, we are now in position to elevate and advance the sport like never before. The merits of the bid, we feel we have a compelling proposal".

The United States proposed staging 60 out of the 80 games at the 2026 World Cup, the first edition of the tournament that will include 48 teams.

Usually referred to as just the World Cup, the tournament is the biggest sporting competition on the planet.

The United States held the World Cup in 1994 while Mexico held it in 1986.


For the first time in more than 30 years, the USA men's national soccer team will not compete, after failing to qualify.

The city was one of 23 included in the joint North American bid as a potential venue for the tournament, but only 16 cities will be selected as official hosts. We've landed a World Cup.

There will be 16 host cities split between the U.S. (10), Canada (three), and Mexico (three).

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman headed to Moscow on Thursday to attend the opening of Russia's World Cup 2018.

When Canada finally gets to that day eight years from now, we'll all be able to point to this year, 2018, as the one that changed everything for Canadian soccer. In 2002, Japan and South Korea both were granted automatic bids when they co-hosted the World Cup.

In the closing days before the vote, Trump ― who won't be president during the 2026 World Cup, even if he wins re-election in 2020 ― promised that visiting players and fans would not face visa problems around the tournament.
