United Bid Selected to Host the 2026 FIFA World Cup

Ronaldo has won the World Cup twice with Brazil

PREMIUM TIMES earlier reported how Morocco on Wednesday at the Expocentre in Moscow lost out 65-134 to the joint bid of the United States of America, Canada, and Mexico. "A lot of hard work has really paid off by US soccer, [the] Mexican Soccer Federation and the Canadian Soccer Federation to bring it to all three host countries for the very first time in World Cup history".

"Football is the victor".

The 2026 tournament will be the first hosted by multiple countries since the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea. That tournament still holds the all-time World Cup attendance record, despite there being only 24 teams involved compared to 32 today.

The joint bid's plans call for 60 of the 80 games to be played in the United States - including all matches from the quarterfinals onward - while Canada and Mexico host 10 apiece.

"We are grateful for the chance to bring to life FIFA's new vision for the future of football", said Decio de Maria, President of Mexico Football Federation and Co‐Chair of the United Bid. That was the only World Cup that Canada's men's team has ever qualified for.

"Overall we scored solidly in the bid and we know we have the best stadium in the country to host soccer", he said.

It's official: the biggest spectacle in the world of soccer is coming to Canada.

Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 thunders in with upgraded aero, tires, brakes
What they can not opt for, though, is the same aesthetic or functional updates Ford made to the standard Mustang for this year. Sticking with the performance theme, the GT350's suspension has has recalibrated springs and modified dampers.

"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.

"We felt our message was very strong", said Montopoli.

With only three teams in each group and each team guaranteed only two games, there is a greater opportunity for teams to collude with each other in the final group-stage matches to secure passage to the knockout round.

The 1994 World Cup ― which Brazil won in front of 94,000 fans at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California ― also led to the creation of Major League Soccer, the American professional league that began play in 1996.

Iveson said host cities need between about $30 to $50 million to cover transportation and security costs and other improvement, and that he is looking for provincial money to help support that bid.

Each of the United Bid's 23 proposed stadiums are fully built, occupied, and operational, ensuring long‐ term use following the 2026 FIFA World CupTM. Expect it to add a World Cup semifinal to its resume. Fox, Fox Sports and Telemundo Deportes have USA broadcast rights to this year's tournament - for which the US national team failed to qualify - and also for 2026.
