North America to Host World Cup 2026

North America will host the 2026 World Cup after FIFA voters overwhelmingly opted for the financial and logistical certainty of a United States-led bid over a risky Moroccan proposal for the first 48-team tournament. The U.S. proposed staging 60 out of the 80 games in 2026, when 16 teams will be added to the finals, leaving Canada and Mexico with ten matches each.

The United 2026 bid (Canada-Mexico-US) officials Carlos Cordeiro (2nd L), president of the United States Football Association, president of the Mexican Football Association Decio de Maria Serrano (2nd R) and Steve Reed (L), president of the Canadian Soccer Association, react following the announcement that the United bid will host the 2026 World Cup during the 68th FIFA Congress at the Expocentre in Moscow on Wednesday
