Nashville leaders react to news of North America's 2026 World Cup

The United bid will, however, be of huge appeal to the Federation Internationale de Football Association bean-counters as the bid team claims the ability to generate a projected profit of more than £8 billion for the governing body.

They even highlighted restrictions on weapons in Morocco in an apparent dig at gun crime in the United States and Mexico. "Congratulations - a great deal of hard work!"

It followed a campaign centered around record crowds, existing venues and a forecast revenue of $14.3 billion (£10.6 billion/€12.1 billion). That means the 31-member Caribbean federation has three times the voting power of South America, which includes soccer powers Brazil and Argentina.

Russian President Vladimir Putin officially opened the World Cup on Thursday at a ceremony in Moscow s 80,000-seat Luzhniki Stadium.

"There's no bigger sporting event than the World Cup, and Nashville will be ready to host the best soccer players and fans on the planet eight years from now", Mayor David Briley said. Federation Internationale de Football Association will also be making the final selection of host cities for the 2026 competition from the 23 candidates proposed in the United Bid.

The 87,000-capacity MetLife Stadium outside NY - home of the NFL's Giants and Jets - is proposed for the final. Boston is one of 23 cities in contention to host matches.

American Greetings also issued an apology for the cards and said it would stop selling them at all retailers, including Target. According to Fox News , the cards first caught wind around May 31, when a shopper posted an image of the cards on Facebook.

The 2026 tournament will look very different than it due to its expansion.

Iran have qualified for back-to-back World Cups for the first time and will be heading to their fifth World Cup finals.

"There will be an effort over the next couple of years for those of us here in Boston to win the right to actually host games here in Boston". The ballot came back 134-65 in favor of the North American coalition, marking the first time three nations were selected as joint hosts.

From that point on, it is knockout stages.

To culminate the 2018 FIFA World Cup™, a block party is planned on Church Street, in front of Lion's Pride, for the Final match on Sunday, July 15, at 11 a.m. ET.
