USA, Canada and Mexico to host football World Cup 2026

Even if Trump wins re-election, his presidency will end before the 2026 World Cup.

World Cup 2018 Predictions: which team will be crowned champion? Morocco, with some justification, point to far more palatable distances and travel times and believe they have significantly closed the gap.

"This might take a few years to sink in", said Sportsnet soccer commentator James Sharman, who was in Moscow and witnessed the vote take place. "We wish him the greatest of luck", said Rubiales.

"Arrowhead is a bucket list destination for fans across all sports, and we are confident it would be a tremendous environment for the world's best soccer teams to showcase their talent", Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said in a statement in March, when Kansas City was added to the short list of potential USA host sites.

The distance between the most northern host city (Edmonton) and the most southern (Mexico City) is nearly 3,000 miles, which compares to 1,900 miles at this month's tournament in Russian Federation. Canada, which has only qualified for the World Cup once, in 1986, has hosted a number of previous Federation Internationale de Football Association events, including the 2015 Women's World Cup.

Although it will be the first tournament to be hosted by three nations, the vast majority of games will be held in the United States.

Wednesday's vote offers hope that this could lead to an entirely new generation of Canadian youngsters taking up soccer, which could have long-term benefits for the men's team, whose only World Cup appearance came in 1986 in Mexico.

"But I think where it had the advantage was the World Cup would be more profitable in America and it is a capitalist world".

Three countries have never shared the duties before.

It's the kind of thing that makes you raise your eyebrows if you're a Celtics fan or a person who wants Irving suiting up for their team some day.

England, like Morocco, knows the feeling of falling short in the bid to host the World Cup.

Spain also did not vote.

This a milestone moment for soccer in this country.

Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino called the new voting procedure a "thorough, transparent" process. 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 2026 tournament will be the biggest World Cup ever held - with 48 teams playing 80 matches over 34 days.

Instead of three automatic places in the tournament, six will be given by that time. The final will be played at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, home to the National Football League's New York Giants and New York Jets.

"On behalf of our United bid, thank you so, so much for this incredible honour", an emotional U.S. Soccer president Carlos Cordeiro said on the Congress stage.

For Morocco, it was the fifth time it had bid for the hosting rights to the football World Cup, calling it "the dream of a nation". American soccer officials downplayed the influence of politics on the bid.
