Canada part of winning World Cup bid for 2026 men's soccer showcase

The Egyptian national team have continued their preparations in their training camp in Grozny, Russia ahead of their opening game against Uruguay on June 15 in the 2018 World Cup's Group A. On Sunday, at the 7th meeting of the FIFA Council (formerly known as FIFA Executive Committee), the two bids were ratified to be voted on following the publication of the Bid Evaluation Report by the 2026 Bid Evaluation Task Force. Canada and Mexico are expected to each play host to 10 games.

Morocco has now lost five bid campaigns.

Either North America or Morocco will earn the right to host the 2026 World Cup when the vote is conducted at the FIFA Congress in Moscow. Canada has never hosted a men's World Cup but held the women's tournament in 2015.

Chief among those is US President Donald Trump, whose "America First" approach might score well with his electoral base but may have made the United bid's task harder than it could ever have imagined.

However, FIFA previously ruled that should the "United bid" beat out Morocco, the number of host countries to automatically qualify for the 2026 World Cup would be decided by another vote by the FIFA council sometime in the future. Mexico played host to the 1970 and 1986 World Cup.

The 2026 World Cup will be held in the United States, Canada and Mexico after their joint bid beat Morocco's proposal to host it. Many in the worldwide community viewed this decision as a reflection of how far Federation Internationale de Football Association has come after years of scandal and widespread corruption, some of which was tied to the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bidding processes. The winning bid listed 17 USA cities, including L.A., San Francisco, Atlanta, Miami and Philadelphia, as potential match sites; organizers will select 10 of those.

In the last edition of the FIFA World Cup, Nigeria were knocked out by France in Brazil.

Of the 211 Fifa member nations, 200 cast a vote at the 68th Fifa Congress in Moscow on Wednesday, with the winning bid needing a majority of 104. It will also be the first tournament to be hosted by three countries, Goal reported.
