World Cup 2026 awarded to USA, Canada and Mexico

US President Donald Trump and leaders of other states will be welcome guests at the FIFA World Cup in Russia, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday. The congress is to choose the host or hosts for the 2026 World Cup. Canada has never hosted a men's World Cup, though it was the site of the 2015 Women's World Cup.

The 3.6 million attendees remain a World Cup record, despite the fact that only 24 nations competed at the time.

Prior to the vote, Peter Montopoli, general secretary of the Canadian Soccer Association and Canada's bid director, called the vote a "watershed moment" and a "game-changer".

The so-called united bid of the USA, Mexico and Canada is the technically safer option and definitely more attractive financially to the voting federations but that may not be enough to carry them over the line.

"They are doing something stressful and that's why we want them wearing the dress code".

"Each of the United Bid's 23 proposed stadiums are fully built, occupied, and operational, ensuring long-term use following the 2026 World Cup".

Historically, the host nation has always automatically qualified for the World Cup - it hasn't been forced to play games in order to qualify for the tournament. One congress member voted for "neither bid". It will be the first ever World Cup that will bring together 48 teams hence the need for more facilities and proper management.

Instead of three automatic places in the tournament, six will be given by that time.

Mannino alerted dispatch that he caught the boy and would begin the search for his parents, according to the Naperville Sun . The 2-year-old boy is running south on Route 59 along the right lane, steps away from passing motorists in the center lane.

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

Sixty matches will take place in the United States, while Canada and Mexico will host 10 games each.

More details have emerged about how countries voted for the host of the 2026 football World Cup.

"This is a monumental victory for the Concacaf family, as the United Bid exemplified the strong collaboration, beyond politics and business, that now exists in our region".

Of the 16 host cities, 10 will be in the United States while the remainder will be split evenly between Canada and Mexico. "Our cities are ready to host today", said John Kristick, executive director of the United Bid Committee.

Miami and Orlando are among the 23 cities in the running to host matches, and Hard Rock Stadium - built for soccer and known as a host to sold-out global matches - is expected to be selected.

The Mexican candidate cities are Guadalajara, Mexico City and Monterrey.

Now that the months of hard yards and near-permanent politicking are out of the way, the really difficult part begins for the North American team - preparing for the biggest World Cup in history.
