Confirmed: FIFA Unveil 2026 World Cup Hosts

By Keegan Kruger - Jun 13, 2018 01:12 PM @KeeganKruger

Football governing body FIFA has confirmed that the US, Mexico and Canada's United Bid has won the right to host the 2026 World Cup.

Official: Spain Sack Manager Day Before World Cup

According to English publication The Guardian, the United Bid received 134 votes, while Morocco received 65 votes, and one country voted for neither.

The North Americans rode to victory on a wave of support from the Americas, Europe and Asia, plus a few votes from Africa.

The 2026 edition of the global showpiece will be the first time three countries host the World Cup, but a vast majority of the tournament will be played on US soil.

Of the 80 matches, 10 will be held in Canada, 10 in Mexico and the other 60 in the US, including the final, which will take place at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

The last time the men's World Cup was held in North America was when the US hosted it in 1994, and before then it was also held in Mexico in 1970 and 1986.

Are you surprised Morocco lost out on the 2026 bid? Have your say in the comments section below.

that is a very stupid decision as they had to consider that some players wanted to win the world cup considering that it is their last(eg iniesta), the atleast had to hire an experienced coach like enrique, wenger etc

USA might have bought the voters. Thanks to Africans for not supporting USA to host again. They just always want to be there . Canada is not a football nation but they can help Mexico to host. With three host countries you will soon be trying to fast track your idea of increasing number of participants. The fall of Legendary Sepp Blatter will down grade football.
