Here are the cities that will be hosting the 2026 World Cup

"It just made a lot of sense to accommodate and expand a tournament have all three countries host and really kind of spread the football love all around North America", Shanks added. For instance, Los Angeles may host the USA opener, Dallas is mentioned as a candidate to host the semifinals, while the final match is expected to take place in Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, just outside of New York City.

Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal were the three Canadian cities designated in the bid to possibly host games in the 2026 tournament, which is expanding to 48 team, up from the current 32-team format. National-team base camps could also be held at local sites such as Loyola Maryland and Navy.

The United bid was always the favourite, but triumphed by a larger than anticipated number after heavy support in Asia and Europe as well as in the Americas. Philadelphia Union midfielder Alejandro Bedoya was just a kid when the U.S last hosted the World Cup.

In qualification for the 2018 World Cup, the U.S. surprisingly finished fifth in a group of six countries in the fifth round of qualification, only ahead of Trinidad & Tobago. Hasseltine said. "We want to make sure the legacy lives forever and lives long beyond the games' being here. So between selling us getting involved, it's also: What can we set as the footprint to leave a better Baltimore after the event's gone?" "Thank you for entrusting us with this privilege, the privilege of hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2026", an emotional US Soccer president Carlos Cordeiro said on stage after the vote. One-by-one, cities from coast-to-coast started confirming their participation in the fledgling league, with excitement rising after every announcement.

Despite the latest setback, Morocco vowed to continue its bid to host the tournament in future.

Hosting rights for previous World Cups had been awarded by what was then a 24-person FIFA Executive Committee.

"My dream is to someday compete in the World Cup, maybe even in my home town of Edmonton".

Although it would be the first tournament to be hosted by three nations, the vast majority of games will be held in the US.

England, like Morocco, knows the feeling of falling short in the bid to host the World Cup.

The 2018 tournament kicks off in Russian Federation on Thursday and the 2022 World Cup will be hosted by Qatar. There was no professional league, numerous national team players came from New Jersey and California, watching live professional games from Europe was almost impossible, and the World Cup ratings from 1990 in Italy were miniscule. He went on to play in all four games for the US National Team in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
