  • World Cup 2026: Edmonton likely to host matches, as North America wins bid

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.

Delegates from around the world voted 134-65 in favour of the North American bid over Morocco at FIFA's 68th Congress in Moscow on Wednesday.

Mwendwa's stance implies the likes of South Africa, Zimbabwe, Benin, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Mozambique, Botswana, Cape Verde and Lesotho all went against a gentleman's agreement to vote for the North American bid.

Canada, Mexico and the United States each have a proven track record of staging successful FIFA football tournaments, with Mexico hosting the World Cup in 1970 and 1986 and the United States hosting the 1994 finals.

For Canada, co-hosting the 2026 tournament will come 40 years after its lone appearance at the men's World Cup.

That year was also the only time the Canadian men's team has qualified for the tournament. Football is known as soccer in the United States.

Trump and Kim open historic summit with handshake
He said North Korea is likely to consider Trump's decision a temporary measure while it remains in negotiations with Washington. Introduced for the Fiscal 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the provision would stop a withdraw "unless the U.S.

Russians will be hoping Mourinho is proved right, and that the World Cup party starts with a welcome win for the hosts.

"Football is the only victor", Carlos Cordeiro, the head of USA soccer, said, according to the BBC.

Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo, reporting from NY, said: "While the official name of the bid is United 2026, the three potential host nations are right now anything but united". Thank you so, so much for this incredible honor.

"We can focus on the game". The leaders of Mexico and Canada gleefully cheered the outcome, emphasizing unity with the United States.

Safe, rational and bountifully lucrative as the Federation Internationale de Football Association decision is to have the 2026 World Cup hosted by the US, Canada and Mexico, it is also disappointing for romantics fancying another tournament in Africa - and laced with contradictions, too. "As a result of these three nations and countless individuals collaborating to deliver an excellent bid, we are now in position to elevate and advance the sport like never before".

Montopoli, speaking for the Canadian portion of the bid, said only that they had the government guarantees they had required. Hasseltine said. "We want to make sure the legacy lives forever and lives long beyond the games' being here".
