Gallery: Stadiums Of USA, Mexico & Canada World Cup Bid Revealed

African nation Morocco want to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup, but will be up against a joint-bid by the USA, Canada and Mexico. Here are stadiums envisaged by the North-American bidders to host the tournament in 2026.

Click through the gallery above to see the stadiums that could host the 2026 FIFA World Cup in USA, Canada and Mexico.

While Morocco submitted 14 stadiums in 12 cities the joint-bid by the North-American countries includes 23 stadiums. Of those 23, 16 are suggested to host the actual tournament in 2026 – the first 48-team World Cup that will take place. 

“We envision the 2026 FIFA World Cup™ staged across 16 already existing worldclass stadiums,” reads an excerpt out of the bidding book.

“We have agreed to host ten matches in Canada, ten in Mexico, and 60 in the United States, including seven Group Stage matches, two Round of 32 matches, and one Round of 16 matches in Canada and Mexico.

“We are submitting 23 stadiums as part of our hosting strategy to provide FIFA with maximum choice and flexibility,”

The big difference to Morocco is that all stadiums already exist and are operating currently, which means none would need to be constructed.

Similar to Morocco’s bid, the United bid is currently reviewed by FIFA’s task force. If both bidding options would get the approval of the task force, the deciding vote will take place on 13 June in Moscow, Russia.

It will be the first where the 2011 member associations – excluding the four bidding members – will have a vote to select the World Cup hosts instead of only the FIFA executive voting, as was common procedure up until now.
