The 2026 World Cup will be played in North America

The Associated Press reports that FIFA's member associations voted 134 to 65, with one no-vote, Wednesday in favour of the joint North American bid by Canada, the USA and Mexico to host the 2026 World Cup men's soccer tournament over that of Morocco.

After considering separate bids for the 2026 World Cup, the federations that govern soccer in Mexico, Canada and the United States chose to launch a cooperative effort to host the tournament in April 2017.

There is now a professional league that includes impressive infrastructure such as stadiums and training grounds, European games are omnipresent on television, top players now come from across the country, and the World Cup is big business.

The English Football Association revealed it had voted for the United 2026 bid in a statement. Three cities each in Canada and Mexico will also host games. The trio visited over 150 countries in the buildup to the vote, making individualized pitches to federations at home in North and Central America and the Caribbean, South America, Asia, Europe, Oceania and even Africa, where they managed to steal a few votes from some of Morocco's fellow CAF members. "And ideally along the way we can qualify for a World Cup in 2022 and get a precursor to what it's going to look like in 2026". Canada's sole World Cup appearance was in 1986 in Mexico, where they did not score a goal, losing to France, Hungry and the Soviet Union in the group stage.

Edmonton proved its hosting abilities during the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, he said. "We will play with passion", the 29-year-old player added.
