U.S., Canada & Mexico to host 2026 World Cup

The 2026 World Cup has 48 teams playing a total of 80 games: 60 planned for cities across the USA, and 10 games in potentially three different cities in both Canada and Mexico.

The announcement was made on Wednesday morning at the 68th FIFA Congress, just one day before the opening of the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

GRANT WAHL: The U.S. -led bid to host World Cup 2026 has won. Their lone opponent was Morocco.

Morocco have congratulated the United States of America, Canada and Mexico for winning the united bid to host the 2026 Fifa World Cup.

Canada, Mexico and the United States will be hosting the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

Toronto's mayor noted that Canada had little chance of hosting the worldwide soccer tournament on its own, but will now reap the benefits resulting from its participation in the joint bid.

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.

The Fifa World Cup kicks off this weekend in Russian Federation, the undisputed number one sporting event on the planet, bigger than any of its contenders, generating more revenue coverage and eyeballs watching than all the other pretenders.

A total of 80 games will be played with 60 planned in the United States and 10 each in Canada and Mexico with the final played at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, home to National Football League teams New York Giants and New York Jets.

British Columbia's government is standing by a decision that will leave the province on the sidelines when the World Cup comes to Canada in 2026.

But which cities and stadiums will host games at the tournament is still being determined.

While Trump has been feuding with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over tariffs and policy after the G-7 meeting and with Mexican leaders about his proposed border wall, the heads of state are not heavily involved in this World Cup bid. We're also joined by Ken Bensinger, author of the book "Red Card: FIFA and the Fall of the Most Powerful Men in Sports", to discuss the scandal-ridden organization and its tumultuous last few years.

The FIFA World Cup of soccer is coming to Montreal in 2026 and Olympic Stadium is going to finally get the retractable roof it didn't have for the 1976 Olympics. That year was also the only time the Canadian men's team has qualified for the tournament. With three host countries, it would be natural to give all three host sides a Day 1 showcase.
