United North American bid awarded 2026 FIFA World Cup over Morocco

Mexico also played host in 1970 and 1986 but Canada has never done so before. Football is known as soccer in the United States. 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.

Several hotels around the metro would host teams and FIFA VIPs during the tournament.

"We wish him the greatest of luck", said Rubiales.

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

Most of Africa pledged their support to their confederation colleagues Morocco, but the United Bid took their thorough campaign to the continent, eventually earning the votes of South Africa, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and seven other African nations. The bid also expects record ticket and hospitality revenue.

Morocco plans to use 14 stadiums, nine of which have yet to be built with the other five due for renovation.

The 2026 World Cup could turn out to be one of the most significant developments to American soccer in a long time.

"We should send Estadio Azteca a bouquet of flowers because of all the 23 stadiums that make up [this candidature], it is the grandaddy", De Maria said.

GRANT WAHL: The U.S. -led bid to host World Cup 2026 has won. They put in a huge amount of legwork, meeting with a slew of countries across the vast continent in hopes of securing a majority of the confederation's votes.

"Today, I'm 17 years old and I play for the (Canadian) men's national team".

Montopoli, speaking for the Canadian portion of the bid, said only that they had the government guarantees they had required. But I also sort of get a little queasy about the USA constantly being seen as this cash register for soccer. Two American teenagers will be in the UEFA Champions League next year and youth national teams have been posting significantly improved results the past three years.

Taking no chances, Montopoli is pulling out his lucky charm.

"There's a pair of socks that I like to wear for these type of situations", he said in an interview.

Less than two month's before Canada was thrust onto the world stage as a future host of the largest single-sport event on the planet, a significant step was made to help ensure that the team that would ultimately represent the Maple Leaf on opening day doesn't fail spectacularly with the world watching.
