Men's World Cup soccer in Vancouver now a step closer to reality

Morocco woos West Asian 2026 vote as Nascimento calls for African solidarity

Morocco woos West Asian 2026 vote as Nascimento calls for African solidarity

The Vancouver Whitecaps have done a good job of tailoring the building into a venue worthy of World Cup play, according to club president Bob Lenarduzzi.

The federal government officially threw its support behind the North American bid for the 2026 World Cup on Tuesday, with the promise of up to $5 million in immediate help should the unified bid win.

"As the only G7 country to have not hosted the men's competition, we are more than ready to welcome the world along with our neighbours in Mexico and the United States", said Steven Reed, head of Canada Soccer and co-chair of the united bid committee. One of those cities could be Vancouver. Canadian cities of Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and Edmonton, identified as potential Canadian candidate cities, have already endorsed the bid.

Nascimento says it is imperative that Africa votes as bloc even though this is highly unlikely, with pockets of support - possibly including South Africa - destined to go towards the three-nation United 2026 bid. I have a higher obligation than just wanting to see soccer in Vancouver.

"I have a higher obligation than just being a soccer fan".

But Horgan said he also has a responsibility to protect taxpayers' money.

The federal government will also help with essential services such as security and border control as it did during the Women's World Cup in 2015. "That's good value for dollar, it's an ability to expose this province globally and I don't understand, how at the last minute, the minister can say we're pulling out", Jas Johal, B.C. Liberal MLA, said.
