USA, Canada and Mexico win Bid against Morocco to Host FIFA Word Cup 2016

The 2026 FIFA World Cup will be the 23rd FIFA World Cup, the quadrennial worldwide men’s football championship is contested by the national teams of the part FIFA member states. It is scheduled to be hosted in Canada, Mexico and United States in 2026.

Two bids to have host the occasion were submitted to FIFA, a joint offer by Canada, Mexico and the United States, and one by Morocco. On 13 June 2018, at the 68th FIFA Congress in Moscow, the Canada, Mexico and United States offer was chosen by 134 votes to Morocco’s 65, while one nation voted in favor of neither. This will be the first word cup fiesta to be facilitated by more than two nations, and just the second facilitated by more than one nation since the 2002 competition. Upon this selection, Canada becomes the fourth nation to have the both men’s and women’s word cups hosted in the country.

The tournament will be the first to feature 48 teams from the usual 32 teams. Eighty matches will be played at the competition, with sixty being played in the US, including all matches from the quarter-finals to the finals, while Canada and Mexico will have 10 matches each. The final match will be played in MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Due to the lack of a tender, FIFA lost revenue.

According to the BBC’s sports editor Dan Roan, “As ever, it seemed, FIFA was looking after itself.
