USA, Canada and Mexico to host football World Cup 2026

The 1994 World Cup ― which Brazil won in front of 94,000 fans at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California ― also led to the creation of Major League Soccer, the American professional league that began play in 1996.

Dalian Wanda is championing China's future football stars in its World Cup creative.

In turn, Infantino gave Putin a "big, big thank you from the bottom of our hearts" for Russia's "engagement" with the World Cup. Almost half (46%) plan to watch the matches at home by themselves, while 28 percent report they'll be watching at a friend or family member's house.

2018 will be the 21st Fifa World Cup, 88 years after the inaugural tournament in Uruguay (1930) and for the first time in Russian Federation.

The FA was among the first to congratulate the US' joint bid with Mexico and Canada.

It marks the fifth time the North African country has failed to secure the right to host the worldwide football tournament.

'Baby Daddy' Father's Day Card Does Not Go Over Well
Target pulled a Father's Day card after a public outcry accused the item of being insensitive to African-Americans. Baby daddies are often deadbeat fathers, as well, leaving mothers without financial assistance.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto on Wednesday congratulated FIFA for choosing Canada, the US and Mexico to jointly host the 2026 World Cup, saying that the football world knows North America is deeply united.

United States soccer president Carlos Corderio said after his bid's success on Wednesday: "It's a bit emotional for us today".

Both teams are struggling for form too losing the majority of their World Cup Friendlies, but given both sides lack of quality, they could cancel each other out.

UEFA will push strongly for the 2030 World Cup, keeping the modern rate of every third edition hosted in Europe. The bid also expects record ticket and hospitality revenue.

North America will host the 2026 World Cup after Federation Internationale de Football Association voters overwhelmingly opted Wednesday for the financial and logistical certainty of a United States-led bid over a risky Moroccan proposal for the first 48-team tournament.

So with some countries harboring concerns about a Trump-led US planning an event that celebrates multiculturalism and requires the host to welcome not only guests from well-developed nations but from any nation that earns its spot on the football field, Mexico's voice was a welcomed one.
