How will the 2026 World Cup vote work?

USA-Canada-Mexico to host World Cup 2026

The 2026 World Cup will be held in the United States, Canada and Mexico after their joint bid beat Morocco's proposal to host it.

The North American bid earned a total of 134 votes, while Morocco garnered 65.

"Hosting a FIFA World Cup™ is an extraordinary honor and privilege", said Steven Reed, President of Canada Soccer and Co-Chair of the United Bid. "Football today is the only victor".

For the first time, the World Cup will feature 48 teams after Federation Internationale de Football Association voted to expand the tournament in January 2017. Mexico hosted the World Cup in 1986; Canada never has.

The 2026 World Cup in Canada, Mexico and the U.S. promises to be the biggest World Cup event ever held and it will be the first to feature an expanded 48-team field with a record 80 matches.

Trump helps take down Mark Sanford
The president himself weighed in by stoking memories of the affair, tweeting that Sanford was "better off in Argentina". Sanford, a consistent critic of Trump from within the president's own party, lost to state legislator Katie Arrington .


The World Cup will expand to 48 teams and 80 games for 2026 and the US will stage 60 of those matches.

The 1994 World Cup, the only one played in the US, was the most financially successful and best-attended tournament in history. Citing a number of high-profile sponsors dropping FIFA, London newspaper The Independent reported that FIFA's 2018 World Cup sponsorship revenues were down $240 million.

Fox, Fox Sports and Telemundo Deportes have US broadcast rights to this year's tournament - for which the USA national team failed to qualify - and also for 2026.

"We may turn a blind eye to some petty offenses and to the nuances of our legislation", he said. Three cities each in Canada and Mexico will also host games.

The 80 matches in the 2026 tournament, involving an expanded roster of 48 teams, will be held in stadiums scattered throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

And it will help to consolidate peace and stability across the wider Western Balkans, ' he added. The next step, he said, is for the deal to be signed by the foreign ministries of both countries.


Lincoln Financial Field was prominent in North America's bid, as one of 23 potential host venues.

And it's great that this family has "a wonderful tradition" of gathering on the eve of the championship in the city where the opening match is to take place, Putin added.

The 2026 World Cup will expand to 48 teams from 32, and will feature a new format of 16 round-robin groups of three teams with the top two from each pool advancing to a 32-nation knockout round. The U.S. government's ongoing investigation into corruption in global soccer rattled FIFA's old guard in its halls of power.

"We will use this platform to unite the world around football and help create a new and sustainable blueprint for the future of FIFA World Cups".

"We cast our vote for the "United" bid as we believe the independent technical assessment made its advantages very clear".
