Malawi FA backs return to the rotation of World Cup hosts

Russian President Vladimir Putin speaks to global soccer leaders at the FIFA congress on the eve of the opener of the 2018 soccer World Cup in Moscow Russia Wednesday

The U.S. men's national team failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, but American soccer just received a massive boost: On the eve of the sport's biggest spectacle, FIFA members voted to award the 2026 World Cup jointly to the United States, Mexico and Canada.

Hosting the games in North America could be a huge boon for the network, which paid roughly a half a billion dollars for rights to the 2018, 2022 and 2026 games. On June 13th FIFA, football's global governing body, voted to award the 2026 World Cup to the three erstwhile amigos.

"It just made a lot of sense to accommodate and expand a tournament have all three countries host and really kind of spread the football love all around North America", Shanks added.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto later echoed that message from their own accounts. "We have seen that for Brazil, which hosted the Cup in 2014, and South Africa, which hosted it in 2010, the net positive effect on the economies were much less than one might expect", he told DW.

The 2026 World Cup will be the first time that it will be hosted by three countries, although most of the tournament will be held in the United States, including the finals potentially being held at MetLife Stadium, capacity 82,000-plus across the bridge in East Rutherford, N.J. Everything from the quarterfinals on will be in the USA, with the final taking place at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

Malawi FA backs return to the rotation of World Cup hosts

Trump signed letters to FIFA President Gianni Infantino expressing confidence that World Cup delegations and fans would be welcomed for the tournament.

Meanwhile, reports suggest that England could also be bidding for the 2030 tournament - a bid that could involve member nations of the United Kingdom.

If Morocco wins the bid to host the games, it will be the second time the African continent is hosting the FIFA Men's World Cup.

"I don't think the North American bid is going to have any impact on moving the needle on the NAFTA negotiations, what it will have an impact on is that North America is gonna have to do some hard work re-thinking what our borders look like", Sarukhán said.

That means the capital's iconic stadium, Estadio Azteca, is nearly certain to feature on day one and become the only arena in the world to host matches in three different world cups.
