North America to Hold the 2026 FIFA World Cup

The United States, Mexico And Canada Will Host The 2026 World Cup

Canada has never hosted a men's World Cup but held the women's tournament in 2015.

The United States, Mexico, and Canada will jointly host the 2026 FIFA World Cup. The United States will host the remaining 60, including the final.

If you want to watch the ceremony and game on your computer or phone without a TV, you'll need access to a live stream of Fox Sports, which has the exclusive English-speaking broadcasting rights in the United States.

But which cities and stadiums will host games at the tournament is still being determined. Canada and Mexico would each host 10 games apiece.

Russian Federation was among those to switch from backing Morocco to the North American effort at the last minute.

"But that aside, I think yesterday's decision by Fifa and the member associations and the process more importantly that has been followed will give the FA great comfort that making a bid for the 2030 World Cup is something that's definitely on the radar".

"What's changed is that this time the 2026 bids were decided on the floor of the Congress, not in a smoke-filled room where people didn't know whose votes were being traded for what", he said. American soccer officials downplayed the influence of politics on the bid. However, the absence of Italy is strikingly odd while US fans won't get to cheer on Team USA like they did in 2014.

All eyes are now on football as the countdown has begun for the 21st edition of the FIFA World Cup, which is set to kick off at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on Thursday. "It should be based on the merits of the bid".

"We are honored to be a part of the USA bid package, and we believe Nashville has a legitimate shot at hosting a World Cup event. Football for all", said Cordeiro.

Meanwhile, it should be noted that Saudi Arabia have fired two coaches since qualifying for the FIFA World Cup 2018.
