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

US, Mexico and Canada to host 2026 World Cup as Morocco lose out

"The 2026 World Cup is coming to Canada, the U.S. & Mexico!"

Canada, the USA and Mexico will make one last pitch Wednesday at the FIFA Congress in Moscow for their joint 2026 World Cup bid.

One of the most immediate and significant implications of Wednesday's result is that Canada's mens national team will play at a World Cup for the first time in nearly four decades, as all three host nations likely qualify automatically for the tournament.

Despite the latest setback, Morocco vowed to continue its bid to host the tournament in future. Citing a number of high-profile sponsors dropping FIFA, London newspaper The Independent reported that FIFA's 2018 World Cup sponsorship revenues were down $240 million.

The three countries presented a "United Bid" that promised to take football to a combined 500million people in North America and were awarded 134 votes to Morocco's 65.

The chat experience has been updated, allowing users to embed video, pictures, tweets, gifs, and much more. The gaming company just announced Steam Chat, which is now in beta for anyone to try.

So Morocco concentrated its pitch on the country's undisputed passion for football, the notion that Africa deserves another World Cup after South Africa 2010, its far more compact offering and Euro-friendly time zone.

CONCACAF, the governing body for soccer in North America, Central America and the Caribbean, has seven slots in the World Cup.

Morocco thinks it could but for his part UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said he was in no position to instruct his members how to vote.

Other cities on the list are Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Cincinnati, Dallas, Denver, Edmonton, Guadalajara, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Monterrey, Montreal, Nashville, New York/NewJersey, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Toronto and Washington, DC.

The matches of the 2018 World Cup will be held between June 14 and July 15 at 12 stadiums located in the 11 above-mentioned cities across Russian Federation.

Morocco lost again with its fifth bid campaign in the past 30 years, including to the US for the 1994 World Cup . Canada has never hosted a men's World Cup but held the women's tournament in 2015.

Historically, the host nation has always automatically qualified for the World Cup - it hasn't been forced to play games in order to qualify for the tournament.

The fact is that the joint bid by Canada, Mexico and the United States has been the front-runner from the moment the partnership was formed two years ago.

The north Africans have persistently cried foul at what they perceive as pro-United bias by the Federation Internationale de Football Association hierarchy and the group of technical experts that put United 2026 way out in front. "We are all united in football. Our cities are ready to host today", said John Kristick, executive director of the United Bid Committee.

2026 ushers in the start of the 48-team World Cup, which gives teams from North America an enhanced opportunity of qualifying for the competition.

To do so would have invited ridicule when it needed to build or renovate the 14 stadiums it wants to use - a task FIFA's technical report said "cannot be overstated". American soccer officials downplayed the influence of politics on the bid. The U.S. team failed to qualify this year.
