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.
