Saudi Crown Prince heads to Russian Federation for World Cup

The United States, Mexico And Canada Will Host The 2026 World Cup

The United States, Mexico And Canada Will Host The 2026 World Cup

On Wednesday, FIFA member countries voted 134-65 for the three nations over the other candidate, Morocco.

Leading their charge was Carlos Cordeiro, an Indian who migrated to the United States from Bombay, now Mumbai, when he was just six and rose to become president of United States Soccer Federation.

USA, Canada and Mexico had been considered favourites throughout the bidding process, despite some suggesting the controversial politics of American president Donald Trump could help Morocco. One such policy was a ban on travel from six majority-Muslim countries for security reasons. "Morocco would have beaten them". "Canada is a good tourist destination".

The U.S. will host 60 matches, including all games from the quarter-finals through to the final.

The World Cup has received special attention this year in the kingdom as its team will play for the first time since 2006. Final logistical details such as host city selection and fixture scheduling will ultimately be settled by Federation Internationale de Football Association. The United States is likely to have 10 cities selected to host games, while Mexico and Canada are expected to each have three. Federation Internationale de Football Association will also decide on whether all three countries are guaranteed a place at the tournament.

North American officials have promised to deliver $14 billion in revenue from the event.

Meanwhile, it should be noted that Saudi Arabia have fired two coaches since qualifying for the FIFA World Cup 2018.

Meanwhile, the United States hosted the World Cup previously in 1994 while Mexico hosted it in 1970 and 1986.

Heavy defeats against Brazil and France in March set alarm bells ringing for Russian fans and their 1-1 draw against Turkey last Tuesday means they head into the World Cup without a victory in their last seven matches.

"I would have liked nothing better than to watch a World Cup match and potentially BC place in 2026", he said in an interview. Mario Ritter was the editor.
