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

Morocco was counting on the strong support of African countries but it seems the ten nations defied the continental solidarity and voted otherwise.

Venues for the 2026 World Cup, which is slated to be the first WC to feature 48 teams, will be chosen from 23 stadiums that now exist or are already under construction.

The United States, Mexico and Canada will host soccer's biggest event in 2026.

Heavy defeats against Brazil and France in March set alarm bells ringing for Russian fans and their 1-1 draw against Turkey last Tuesday means they head into the World Cup without a victory in their last seven matches.

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

"Thank you so, so very much for this incredible honour". Football today is the only victor.

Why Julen Lopetegui was appointed — Real Madrid
Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed he had the chance to become Zinedine Zidane's successor at Real Madrid but turned down the offer to stay in Turin.

Against a chorus of critics who are accusing him of "selling his soul" to Vladimir Putin, British pop star Robbie Williams will perform at the opening ceremony for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

USA, Canada and Mexico had been considered favourites throughout the bidding process, despite some suggesting the controversial politics of American president Donald Trump could help Morocco.

The United bid will, however, be of huge appeal to the Federation Internationale de Football Association bean-counters as the bid team claims the ability to generate a projected profit of more than £8 billion for the governing body.

Mexico also played host in 1970 and 1986 but Canada has never done so before.

He then escorted Putin off the stage and the conference - which announced North America would host the 2026 World Cup - stopped for an unscheduled coffee break.

To do so would have invited ridicule when it needed to build or renovate the 14 stadiums it wants to use - a task FIFA's technical report said "cannot be overstated".
