USA, Mexico and Canada Awarded 2026 World Cup


The North American World Cup bid overcame its only challenger, Morocco, by a vote of 134 to 65.

Carlos Cordeiro, the president of U.S. Soccer, thanked FIFA’s membership for “the incredible privilege” of hosting the World Cup.

“It was a very emotional moment for everyone,” Cordeiro said later, recalling the devastation he felt in 2010 when the United States failed to secure the right to stage the 2022 World Cup, losing to Qatar in a much-criticized voting process.

The 2026 tournament will be one of firsts. It will be the first time the World Cup is hosted by three countries, the first time it has a 48-team format (up from 32 teams), and Wednesday’s vote was the first of its kind to be decided by FIFA’s entire membership. Of the tournament’s 80 matches, 10 will be in Canada, 10 in Mexico and 60 in the United States — including every match from the quarterfinals to the final.

The last time the men’s World Cup was held in North America was when the United States hosted it in 1994. It was held in Mexico in 1970 and 1986, and Canada has never hosted. It was unclear Wednesday whether all three nations would be granted automatic bids into the field.  (From the NY Times)
