Meanwhile, the U.S. hosted the World Cup previously in 1994 while Mexico hosted it in 1970 and 1986.

Bid leader Cordeiro said his team was "humbled" by the result and predicted the tournament would put football "on a new and sustainable path for generations to come".

At the moment, he has no concrete estimate on the returns he expects the World Cup will bring to the city. Based on the United Bid Committee's projections for ticket revenues, average ticket prices might exceed $400, though the committee said in a Wednesday statement that the exact price range will be determined later by Federation Internationale de Football Association.

During the weeks before the 2014 World Cup, the United States played Nigeria before a regional record crowd of 52,033 at EverBank Field.

"We will not be flawless but we are looking for uniformity and consistency - but it can not be 100 per cent", said Massimo Busacca, FIFA's head of refereeing. We are ready made.

They are the most compelling reasons why we would be the best hosts. 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.

The city and federal government are already on board with funding the matches.

Futbol has always been king in Mexico, but now there are more kids playing soccer in Canada than hockey. But FIFA President Gianni Infantino suggested the split of games could change.

"The longer the province delays, the more challenging that is, the more risk is that we drop off as one of the seven cities that doesn't get to do it".

They followed up by heading to South America, where nine of 10 CONMEBOL countries - Brazil being the lone exception - ended up voting for the US, Canada and Mexico. "Commonwealth is an wonderful stadium, I love playing there".

The majority of the 80 matches in the North American bid would be played in the United States, who hosted the 1994 FIFA World Cup. Having boarded a plane to Moscow in the immediate aftermath of a dominant one goal, three assist performance for the Whitecaps, Davies added "pitchman" to his growing resumé on Wednesday, and with an expected move to Europe coming in January, Davies, should he live up to his sky-high potential, will be spreading the word about Canadian soccer in the years leading up to what could be a major coming-out party in the Great White North.

"We all wanted it, our team wanted it, the country wanted it. It's exciting times ahead".

She said a joint Canada-USA-Mexico bid will provide challenges, "especially for transportation", she said.

Chicago and Minneapolis also both pulled out citing similar concerns.

The city is working with the Edmonton Eskimos and other community groups on a master plan to upgrade Commonwealth Stadium.

The North American bid had to overcome concerns about the effects of policies of the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump. That's the spirit of the World Cup.

To prepare for the 2015 Women's World Cup, the stadium got new locker rooms, which are now used by visiting CFL teams, Jevne said.
