U.S., Mexico and Canada to host 2026 World Cup

US Mexico and Canada to host 2026 World Cup

After considering separate bids for the 2026 World Cup, the federations that govern soccer in Mexico, Canada and the United States made a decision to launch a cooperative effort to host the tournament in April 2017. "Thank you for entrusting us with this privilege", Carlos Cordeiro, the president of U.S. Soccer, said after the decision was announced at a Federation Internationale de Football Association meeting in Moscow.

"Football is the only victor", US Soccer boss Carlos Cordeiro said, according to BBC.

Baltimore and M&T Bank Stadium fared well in FIFA's assessment of potential game venues, and the city is considered the favorite to host the World Cup Team Workshop, which brings together delegations from all 48 competing nations for a pretournament introduction to the World Cup's organization.

The plan is that Canada and Mexico would each host 10 matches, while 60 matches would be played in the United States. The US, however, hosted the country on its own merit in 1994, while Mexico have twice before organised the tournament, in 1970 and in 1986. Canada has never hosted a men's World Cup, though it was the site of the 2015 Women's World Cup.

Morocco have now failed with five bids to hold the World Cup and are unlikely now to have the financial means to put together another bid for the foreseeable future.

With just two bids, the trio bid (known as United 2026) was far and away the favorite. With a handful of games in Mexico and Canada but the majority in the USA, the 2026 bid promises the richest and most lucrative tournament in the history of global soccer.

It marks the first time the World Cup will be held in more than one country since 2002, when South Korea and Japan shared hosting duties. The organization is set to earn more than $6 billion in the four-year cycle tied to this year's World Cup, with an estimated profit exceeding $100 million. The congress is to choose the host or hosts for the 2026 World Cup. Russia's head of World Cup security estimated last week that 105 representatives from 30 countries have confirmed involvement in the cooperation center, a number he expects to grow by opening day.
