U.S., Mexico, & Canada to Host 2026 World Cup

Gianni Infantino

In other developments, the football world governing body FIFA has embraced the technology of VAR (Video Assistant Referee) which will be used for the first time in the tournament's history.

But Morocco, bidding for a fifth time, had closed the gap on "United 2026" to the point that nobody in Moscow wanted to make a public prediction ahead of the vote at the FIFA Congress, where 207 member associations, minus the four bidding nations, cast ballots.

Carlos Codeiro, US Soccer President said; "Thank you so, so much for this incredible honour".

"To have a message coming from football that says actually Mexico, Canada and the United States together can organize the biggest sporting and social event together", Infantino said.

Morocco have bid five times now and they have been overlooked each time. This is compared to $6 billion (£4.48) that was projected from the Moroccan bid. Brazil looks to justify their position as +400 tournament chalk as they take on No. 6 Switzerland as -245 betting favourites, while Germany sits as a +475 bet to repeat as World Cup champions as they open their group stage schedule against Mexico as a -205 wager. 1986 and 1994, whereas Canada hosted the Women's World Cup in 2015.

The U.S. proposed staging 60 out of the 80 games in 2026, when 16 teams will be added to the tournament, leaving Canada and Mexico with ten fixtures each.

Their were 23 host cities put forward shown on this map below. "We want to measure ourselves against the best teams in the world". This new format was introduced so that more games could be played as a whole, but the winners would still be only playing seven games.

It also helps if you are facing a team who have now lost eight and drawn two of their last 10 World Cup matches, whose defending fell painfully short of World Cup standard and whose attack was non-existent.

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.
