United States, Canada and Mexico to jointly host 2026 World Cup


The U.S., Mexico, and Canada had submitted a joint bid to host the World Cup in 2026, when the tournament will expand from 32 teams to 48.

"We've got a group of men who are hungry and ready to become the last team to earn the right, officially earn the right, to qualify for 2022, which is Qatar". The failed circuit was born out of the excitement of Canada's lone World Cup appearance in 1986, but the CPL has taken the reverse approach by kicking off seven years ahead of the 2026 tournament, with the opportunity to help shape the program ahead of its hosting duties an exciting one. "Our game's in a great space".

An FA spokesperson said: "We congratulate the USA, Canada and Mexico on winning the bid to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup". This is going to another level.

In qualification for the 2018 World Cup, the United States of America surprisingly finished fifth in a group of six countries in the fifth round of qualification, only ahead of Trinidad & Tobago.

The 2026 tournament will be the first hosted by multiple countries since the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea. It hasn't been confirmed if that will be the case with the joint bid.

Years of meticulous planning and preparation have all led to this moment and now, on the eve of the first ball being kicked at Russian Federation 2018, Peter Schmeichel pays a visit to Moscow to sample the pre-World Cup flavor. But even if that doesn't happen, Canada will be on the field in 2026, he told CTV News Channel.

Nashville has recently hosted World Cup Qualifying matches and CONCACAF Gold Cup matches.

210 members were present with 203 members entitled to vote. Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal are in the running to be among the 16 host cities. He was born in Ghana in a refugee camp.

At the time, the City of Vancouver said it was "extremely disappointed" it was no longer being considered for the tournament, adding that "hosting the biggest sporting event on earth would have offered significant economic benefits".

Chief among those is US President Donald Trump, whose "America First" approach might score well with his electoral base but may have made the United bid's task harder than it could ever have imagined.

Peter Montopoli, the general secretary of the Canadian Soccer Association and Canada's bid director, said it will be 100 per cent natural grass, meaning temporary surfaces will have to be installed in stadiums with artificial turf.

This is an wonderful honour for any English man or woman.
