4505072383 United States Mexico & Canada Bid Wins Vote For 2026 World Cup

In a long-anticipated vote on Wednesday, the joint bid of the U.S., Mexico and Canada defeated Morocco, its only challenger, as more than 200 national soccer federations cast their ballots to cap FIFA's annual Congress.

Edmontonian Alphonso Davies, 17, was the first to speak in the United Bid's final presentation to the FIFA Congress prior to the vote.

After considering separate bids for the 2026 World Cup, the federations that govern soccer in Mexico, Canada and the United States made a decision to launch a cooperative effort to host the tournament in April 2017. "Football today is the only victor".

2018 will be the 21st Fifa World Cup, 88 years after the inaugural tournament in Uruguay (1930) and for the first time in Russian Federation.

In a report comparing United 2026 World Cup bid cities released earlier this month, Edmonton's Commonwealth Stadium was ranked as the fifth best stadium in the united bid. The United States, which hosted the 1994 World Cup, is to host 60 of the 80 matches, including those in the knockout phase, while Canada and Mexico will get just 10 group-stage matches each.

Since the USA first hosted the World Cup in 1994 (Denver wasn't one of the host cities), it has been in France, South Korea and Japan (joint-bid), Germany, South Africa and Brazil, with the Russia World Cup beginning on Thursday.

The United States disappointingly failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, ending its streak of seven consecutive tournament appearances.

Despite the latest setback, Morocco vowed to continue its bid to host the tournament in future. US cities in the running include Pasadena, California; Atlanta; Arlington, Texas and East Rutherford, New Jersey, for key games including semifinals and finals.

United States of America on the other hand will receive a giant share of fixtures based on its larger size, as Canada comes second and Mexico coming third.

The announcement was made on Wednesday morning at the 68th FIFA Congress, just one day before the opening of the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation. Olympic Stadium, used occasionally for home matches by the Montreal Impact, is also a contender to host games.

"On Dec. 2, 2010, I couldn't decide if I never wanted to go anywhere near this again or if we should start working on the next one right away", he said, referring to the tainted loss to Qatar's bid.

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