Miami could be hosting some World Cup 2026 soccer games

FIFA's member associations had 11 billion reasons to say yes to the joint bid from Canada, the US and Mexico to host the 2026 World Cup. Canadian officials have already said that there is a movement to stage games in all three countries on the tournament's opening day, should the so-called United bid carry the day.

Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture Lisa Beare reiterated that point Wednesday, saying the government's concerns "haven't changed".

There was a feeling before the world's football associations gathered at the Moscow congress that more might sentimentally favour Morocco's bid, but all the numbers were stacked in North America's favour.

The province, which owns BC Place, said FIFA's financial conditions and uncertain security costs were deal-breakers. "However, those assurances were not addressed".

The soccer showpiece will return to the USA for the first time since 1994 after gaining 134 votes, while Morocco got 65 at the FIFA Congress in Moscow, where the 2018 tournaments starts on Thursday.

The news was met with excitement throughout the country.

The regional bid proved more appealing this time and the North Americans even collected 11 votes from Africa. Although just four million players are registered in the US, despite a population of a third of a billion, Cordeiro said he believes that amount can be tripled by bringing the game to our "disenfranchised and underserved".

Saudia Arabia attack on Yemen: Hodeidah assaulted by warships and warplanes
Forces loyal to Yemen's exiled government and irregular fighters led by Emirati troops had neared Hudaida in recent days. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Monday acknowledged the USA continues to provide support to the Saudi-led coalition.

"We're got a lot of players that aren't actually representing Canada and I think this people a very front-sight focus of-it's here". "Tomorrow this dream comes true". Former U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati told ESPN the most important time in the U.S. capitalizing on 2026 starts today. "And the US-Canadian relationship right now is rocky - with both sides threatening a trade war", he said.

Usually referred to as just the World Cup, the tournament is the biggest sporting competition on the planet.

"Hosting the 2026 FIFA World Cup is a rare and important moment to demonstrate that we are all truly united through sport", Cordeiro said. The United States is likely to have 10 cities selected to host games, while Mexico and Canada are expected to each have three.

During the bidding process, Trump had threatened that nations that did not support the North American bid should not expect United States support on other issues.

Herdman said there is precedent for the nations involved in joint bids being granted entry, pointing to Japan and South Korea in 2002. Whether FIFA also extends this courtesy to Mexico and Canada - the latter a relative nonentity in worldwide soccer that has qualified for just one World Cup in 1986 - remains to be seen.

"Not to comment really on the US side, but maybe they felt that they wished to go further in some additional letters which they had received from their president", he added.
