USA, Canada and Mexico win bid to host 2026 FIFA World Cup

4505072383 United States Mexico & Canada Bid Wins Vote For 2026 World Cup

The socks are red and Montopoli wore them when Canada won the right to host the 2015 Women's World Cup as well as the 2012 and 2016 women's Olympic bronze-medal matches.

Moroccan officials, who have stressed throughout their campaign how snatching the tournament from under the noses of the North American favourites will transform the landscape of their country, remain quietly confident they can upset the odds.

Not to mention the 2026 World Cup will coincide with the 250-year anniversary of the U.S.' independence.

The three countries presented a "United Bid" that promised to take football to a combined 500million people in North America and were awarded 134 votes to Morocco's 65.

Although it will be the first tournament to be hosted by three nations, the vast majority of games will be held in the Unites States.

"Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2026", Carlos Cordiero, the president of US Soccer told the delegates from more than 200 member nations following the vote.

Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo, reporting from NY, said: "While the official name of the bid is United 2026, the three potential host nations are right now anything but united".

The VAR will be overseen remotely from a control room in Moscow throughout the tournament and, in a bid to control sweat levels, FIFA is insisting they forgo civilian suits and ties in favour of football shirts and shorts.

Dancing FBI agent faces charges in accidental shooting
The agent was taken to police headquarters and later released to a supervisor with the Federal Bureau of Investigation . Bishop gained national notoriety after video of his backflip on a dance floor in the early hours of June 2 went viral.

Under the current blueprint, the USA would host the lion's share of games with 60, compared to 10 each for Canada (with Edmonton, Montreal and Toronto serving as host cities) and Mexico.

But compared to North America, Morocco's bid existed largely on paper - many stadiums and roads would have had to have been built and critics questioned how it would have coped with the 2026 tournament, which will be expanded to 48 teams.

Baltimore and M&T Bank Stadium fared well in FIFA's assessment of potential game venues, and the city is considered the favorite to host the World Cup Team Workshop, which brings together delegations from all 48 competing nations for a pretournament introduction to the World Cup's organization. We've landed a World Cup.

One has to think all three will receive an automatic pass into the tournament.

Monterrey, Guadalajara and Mexico City are up for consideration in Mexico, while Montreal, Toronto and Edmonton are the Canadian cities that have been proposed. "The merits of the bid, we feel we have a compelling proposal".

"We expect record profits for Federation Internationale de Football Association of (US)$11 billion", said Cordeiro, perhaps hitting the key button.

"Both bids were of a very high quality and we welcome the fact that the bidding process was both open and transparent".

Morocco also had the backing of most of Africa after a call from Ahmad Ahmad, the head of the Confederation of African Football to support its bid.
