The 2026 FIFA World will be held in the United States of America, Mexico and Canada after their joint bid won the right to host the tournament, beating Morocco in Wednesday’s vote.
The “United Bid” was the favorite going into the vote given the infrastructure in place in all three countries. The ‘United 2026’ bid was selected by FIFA member nations, winning 134 votes compared to 65 votes for Morocco. The 2026 tournament will be the biggest World Cup ever held – with 48 teams playing 80 matches over 34 days.
This will be the first time three countries host the World Cup together and the first tournament in multiple countries since the 2002 World Cup that held in Japan and South Korea.
