North American bottom line translates into winning 2026 World Cup bid

The joint bid won 134 votes (67%) out of the 203 entitled to vote with Morocco bagging 65 (33%) when voting took place in Moscow on Wednesday, a day ahead of the Russia World Cup 2018.

Canada's men's team has not played in the World Cup since 1986 but traditionally, host countries do get to play.

The last time the US hosted the World Cup was in 1994, with Brazil winning the tournament at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

Baltimore and M&T Bank Stadium fared well in FIFA's assessment of potential game venues, and the city is considered the favorite to host the World Cup Team Workshop, which brings together delegations from all 48 competing nations for a pretournament introduction to the World Cup's organization.

In 2026, however, there won't be any official World Cup festivities in Chicago, after Mayor Rahm Emanuel pulled out of the North American bid in March.

Before the 1994 World Cup in the United States, Jacksonville served as the host for a friendly match between the USA team and Moldova, played at Wolfson Park while the old Gator Bowl underwent extensive reconstruction.

Instead, Fifa member nations cast their votes.

This was the first World Cup vote since 2010, when two hosts were named and afterwards investigators from the United States and Switzerland unveiled corruption on an unprecedented scale.

United States, Canada and Mexico awarded 2026 World Cup
But FIFA President Gianni Infantino suggested the split of games could change. The United States last hosted the men's World Cup in 1994.

If we're spitballing, it's hard to imagine the United States being forced to qualify for a World Cup in which it is the predominant host. The United States will host the remaining 60, including the final.

Just ten of those games will be played in Mexico and Canada respectively, with the United States hosting 60 of the fixtures.

"They have made a decision among themselves but ultimately it will be up to FIFA to decide", FIFA President Gianni Infantino told reporters Wednesday. Based on the United Bid Committee's projections for ticket revenues, average ticket prices might exceed $400, though the committee said in a Wednesday statement that the exact price range will be determined later by Federation Internationale de Football Association.

But because the city has yet to be confirmed as an official Canadian host, a venue can not be finalized.

"Today, I'm 17 years old and I play for the (Canadian) men's national team".

If Kansas City is chosen, matches would be played at Arrowhead Stadium.

"But with the World Cup coming, we'll definitely develop some of those role models that players like Luis. can aspire to", he says.

Trump tweeted his congratulations to those involved in winning the right to host the competition.
