World Cup 2026: U.S, Canada & Mexico Wins Right to Host World Cup
The United States, Canada, and Mexico will host the 2026 World Cup after the joint bid of the three countries beat Morocco.
The ‘United 2026’ bid was selected by Fifa member nations, winning 134 votes compared to 65 for Morocco.
It marks the first time the World Cup will be held in more than one country since 2002 when South Korea and Japan shared hosting duties.
“Football is the only victor. We are all united in football,” US Soccer president Carlos Cordeiro said.
“Thank you so, so much for this incredible honor. Thank you for entrusting us with this privilege.”
The move is significant for both the United States and Canada, with each team failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, which gets underway on Thursday.
Both Mexico (1970 and 1986) and the United States (1994) have previously hosted World Cups.
