North America to host 2026 World Cup. A joint North American bid has been chosen as hosts of the 2026 World Cup, following a FIFA association member vote in Moscow Wednesday.
The last time the US hosted a World Cup was in 1994, and Mexico in 1986. Canada has never previously hosted World Cup matches.
The vote, in which all FIFA associations were, for the first time, eligible to vote for the host, was cast at the 68th FIFA Congress on the eve of the 2018 edition of the tournament, which begins Thursday with the official opening ceremony. Ref. CNN.
Interesting to know they believe Mexico is part of North America, I doubt Trump thinks that. Having matches across Canada, the USA and Mexico is a bit unfair because they each impose a different kind of environment specially the altitude in Mexico. Does this also mean that all 3 countries qualify?
