United bid

The United States, Canada and Mexico have won the right to host the 2026 World Cup after a vote of  delegates in Moscow.

Morocco hoped to become the second African nation to host the tournament but earned just 65 votes and suffered defeat in a World Cup bidding process for the fifth time.

2026 will therefore see the World Cup return to North America for the first time since 1994, when the United States hosted alone. Mexico has staged the World Cup twice previously, in 1970 and 1986, while Canada hosted the Women’s World Cup in 2015.

Canada and Mexico have proposed three host cities each: Toronto, Montreal and Edmonton will stage games north of the U.S. border, while Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey will be match sites down south.

The U.S. must cut a list of 17 cities down to 10 over the coming years. It has proposed the Rose Bowl (Pasadena, Calif.) for the opener; Mercedes-Benz Stadium (Atlanta) and AT&T Stadium (Arlington, Tex.) for semifinals; and MetLife Stadium (East Rutherford, N.J.) for the final.

The other U.S. cities in the running are Baltimore, Boston (Foxborough, Mass.), Cincinnati, Denver, Houston, Kansas City, Miami, Nashville, Orlando, Philadelphia, San Francisco (Santa Clara, Calif.) and Seattle and Washington, D.C. The favorites among them would likely be Washington, Boston, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Miami, Seattle and Houston.

“It’s a bit emotional for us today,” US Soccer president Carlos Cordeiro told the Congress. “Thank you so, so very much for this incredible honour. Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of hosting the World Cup in 2026.”
