US, Mexico, Canada embark on World Cup history with winning bid

The 2018 FIFA World Cup will be held in Russia

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.

Brazil will play their first game of the tournament against Switzerland at the 45,000-seater Rostov Arena on Sunday.

The city is working with the Edmonton Eskimos and other community groups on a master plan to upgrade Commonwealth Stadium.
