4505072383 United States Mexico & Canada Bid Wins Vote For 2026 World Cup

The United States, Mexico and Canada won the right to host the 2026 World Cup after easily beating Morocco in a vote by Federation Internationale de Football Association member nations on Wednesday.

The "United" bid received 134 of the 203 votes cast at the FIFA Congress in Moscow, while Morocco polled 65. But with the tournament expanding from 32 to 48 teams in 2026, tripling the hosts would not cause as many ripples. "Football today is the only victor, and in that spirit, we wish our Russian hosts and all the teams participating here this month, the very best of luck".

The current blueprint calls for Canada and Mexico to stage 10 games each with the US hosting 60. "Thank you for entrusting us with this privilege". FIFA's bid evaluation report scored it significantly higher than the Morocco bid, with United 2026 earning a score of 4.0 out of five, while Morocco scored 2.7, and the voters responded. It was all for wearing that jersey, to represent my country and get us to a World Cup. The 1994 World Cup ― which Brazil won in front of 94,000 fans at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California ― also led to the creation of Major League Soccer, the American professional league that began play in 1996.

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. Under the terms of the bid, Canada and Mexico will each host 10 matches.

The Mexican candidate cities are Guadalajara, Mexico City and Monterrey.

The tournament will mark the first time a World Cup has been shared by three host nations.

Herdman, who coached the women's national squad when Canada hosted the FIFA Women's World Cup in 2015, says "we were singing O Canada with 60,000 people, alongside everyone that was watching".

And critics of the Morocco bid point to the fact that the 2026 World Cup will be the first to be expanded to 48 teams, posing an enormous logistical test for the hosts. We are ready made.

Delegates were faced with a choice between a slick joint bid, or Morocco's offer that would have brought the tournament to Africa for a second time.

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.

She was cleared of any wrongdoing and dismissed the claims as "laughable" and "unfortunate".

Hosting a World Cup is a spectacle unlike any other, and in two cycles, the world's biggest competition will return to North America following Wednesday's vote. The views expressed therein are not necessarily those of stlucianewsonline.com, its sponsors or advertisers.
