World Cup teams could train on Vancouver Island

World Cup teams could train on Vancouver Island

"I believe in what I can do for FIFA and for football".

"I would like to thank the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, His Majesty the King, His Royal Highness the Crown Prince, and my good friend His Excellency Turki Al-Sheikh for your tremendous support of the United bid", said Cordeiro.

But with the tournament expanding from 32 to 48 teams in 2026, tripling the hosts would not cause as many ripples.

In a vote of more than 200 member nations of soccer's governing body in Moscow, the so-called United Bid beat out Morocco, 134-65.

Montreal city Coun. Rosannie Filato, who is responsible for sports and recreation, said the city implemented an action plan in 2016 to host global sporting events and is investing in transit systems.

Under Trump, relations between the United States, Canada and Mexico have plumbed new lows thanks to disputes in the renegotiation of the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement, known as NAFTA, a $1.1 trillion trade pact that ties the three countries' economies together and which Trump has said should be scrapped.

The "United Bid" had been favourites from the start but Morocco's promise of a "European World Cup in Africa" was appealing to the committee.

Rubiales said the players, who Spanish media said had tried to dissuade him from such drastic action, had vowed to give everything for the team.

The 24-team women's World Cup, staged in six stadiums across the country, and Toronto's Pan American/Parapan Am Games that drew over 6,000 athletes from 41 countries, were held within weeks of each other in 2015.

And unlike past World Cup hosting decisions, it is being made by the 211 FIFA members associations (minus the bidding countries and any under suspension) as opposed to the FIFA executive committee.

The United States couldn't get into the 2018 World Cup, but on Wednesday the 2026 World Cup was brought to the U.S.

Vancouver Whitecaps star Alphonso Davies, who will likely lead the Canadian line for years to come, eloquently opened the North American bid's presentation to the FIFA Congress. Although just four million players are registered in the USA, despite a population of a third of a billion, Cordeiro said he believes that amount can be tripled by bringing the game to our "disenfranchised and underserved".

The big question right now is what kind of impact the 2026 World Cup will have in the United States?

"So, we see this as a great celebration of football and something that we're looking forward to". The Fan ID provides a visa-free entry to Russian Federation as well as the possibility to use certain free transport services, including public transport in the World Cup host cities. There was no professional league, numerous national team players came from New Jersey and California, watching live professional games from Europe was almost impossible, and the World Cup ratings from 1990 in Italy were miniscule.
