Nashville leaders react to news of North America's 2026 World Cup

USA, Canada and Mexico to host football World Cup 2026

USA, Canada and Mexico to host football World Cup 2026

"It's great for the country and great for soccer in America", he said. The failed circuit was born out of the excitement of Canada's lone World Cup appearance in 1986, but the CPL has taken the reverse approach by kicking off seven years ahead of the 2026 tournament, with the opportunity to help shape the program ahead of its hosting duties an exciting one. Mexico and Canada will get 10 games each.

The current plan is for the U.S.to host 60 matches.

Potential host cities include New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Mexico City, and Montreal; but not Chicago, after the Windy City pulled out of the North American bid. There is also no National Football League stadium within Portland that could be used.

British Columbia's government is standing by a decision that will leave the province on the sidelines when the World Cup comes to Canada in 2026. "In 2026 the dollars will be more, more attention, impact". Tapping into '94, nobody expected [MLS] to be where it is now. I'm excited to see what the possibilities are.

In a statement Wednesday, Alberta's minister responsible for sport, Ricardo Miranda, said the province has received a request for funding from the city. The preliminary bid book submitted by the organizers anticipates 10 American cities at hosts. The U.S. hosted once in 1994.

"It's huge for our country as a whole".

At the time, the City of Vancouver said it was "extremely disappointed" it was no longer being considered for the tournament, adding that "hosting the biggest sporting event on earth would have offered significant economic benefits".

During the weeks before the 2014 World Cup, the United States played Nigeria before a regional record crowd of 52,033 at EverBank Field.

Pulisic, McKennie, Adams and Acosta, plus youngsters such as Josh Sargent and PSG's Queens-bred Timothy Weah, will be in their prime when the World Cup comes stateside.

"But I also believe Canada getting the World Cup overrides the cities that will or won't be participating. That's more important in so many ways than the 31 or 32 days of the event", Gulati said. "We've got 23 fantastic venues across three countries, obviously supported by wonderful infrastructure, and hundreds and thousands of years of common culture - we share each other's languages, each other's food". The games only last two hours.

"They have at their disposal not only the financial resources but, more importantly, the policing and security resources to make sure we do that well", he said.
