USA, Mexico and Canada to host 2026 World Cup

  • The United bid by Canada Mexico and the United States was awarded the 2026 FIFA World Cup

Gimenez hopes Miami-Dade will be able to host some of the World Cup 2026 games designated to the United States during the semifinals and benefit economically. Sen.

Safe, rational and bountifully lucrative as the Federation Internationale de Football Association decision is to have the 2026 World Cup hosted by the US, Canada and Mexico, it is also disappointing for romantics fancying another tournament in Africa - and laced with contradictions, too.

From a soccer standpoint, the venue has hosted major worldwide tournaments recently with the 2014 Women's U-20 World Cup and 2015 Women's World Cup, but they were met with derision from the players over the stadium's artificial playing surface.

MetLife Stadium in New Jersey is expected to host the 2026 World Cup final.

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.

A total of 80 games will be played with 60 planned in the United States and 10 each in Canada and Mexico with the final played at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, home to National Football League teams New York Giants and New York Jets.

The North American countries won with 134 votes, or 67 percent, against an upstart campaign from Morocco, which garnered 65 votes, in the Wednesday morning vote in Moscow.

Over 20 million male and female Saudis are set to enthusiastically watch the World Cup 2018 opening football match between Saudi Arabia and Russia at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, Russia at 6.00 p.m. Thursday.

The loss is Morocco's fifth in a World Cup bidding process after previous tries in 1994, 1998, 2006 and 2010. The United States will host the remaining 60, including the final.

The games will be played in 16 cities.

There will be 16 host cities split between the USA (10), Canada (three), and Mexico (three).

Of the 23 cities chosen as potential host sites, 15 now have MLS teams.

Canada has not qualified for the men's World Cup since 1986, when it had a dismal showing, scoring exactly zero goals in three games.

And the man who has coached them through much of their recent success was recently appointed the head of the men's national soccer team.

"I'm a proud Canadian citizen and my dream is to one play in the World Cup, maybe even in my hometown of Edmonton", said Davies, whose parents fled the civil war in Liberia.

When Canada finally gets to that day eight years from now, we'll all be able to point to this year, 2018, as the one that changed everything for Canadian soccer.

Trump tweeted his congratulations to those involved in winning the right to host the competition.
