US, Canada, Mexico to host 2026 World Cup

LEVERKUSEN GERMANY- JUNE 08  Joshua Kimmich of Germany in action during the international friendly match between Germany and Saudi Arabia at Bay Arena

The five-person task force it sent to North America and Morocco wrote up a report heavily favoring United 2026 - Maroc 2026's bid was labeled "high risk" in three fundamental areas, stadiums, accommodations and transportation - but Federation Internationale de Football Association could not be seen putting its thumb on the scale and disqualify Maroc 2026 before a vote of the Federation Internationale de Football Association membership in Moscow.

Morocco's hopes of hosting the 2026 World Cup foundered on the failure to secure a united African vote as the country lost in its fifth attempt to stage the global event, the north African country's bid team said on Wednesday.

The USA, Canada and Mexico were awarded the hosting rights to the 2026 World Cup.

Tournament matches at TIAA Bank Field, however, aren't on the agenda.

This was the first World Cup vote since 2010, when United States and Switzerland investigators unveiled corruption on an unprecedented scale afterwards.

Levi's Stadium has played host to big soccer games before, like the Copa America Centenario and the Gold Cup.

The US has submitted 17 cities to host matches, but that list is to be narrowed down to 10 by 2021.

'Anthony Martial wants to leave Manchester United'
Arsenal target Anthony Martial has told Manchester United that he wants to leave the club this summer, according to his agent. If Mourinho does still think that Martial has the potential touted in 2015, he does little to show it publicly.

"I wish to congratulate Fifa for the conduct of this process and congratulate the president for what he has done in order to move things towards more transparency and more inclusion", said Morocco's Football Federation president Fouzi Lekjaa. Any warm-up matches would likely occur in late May or early June 2026, though the tournament dates have yet to be confirmed.

I'm not a soccer fan personally, but I appreciate the passion of soccer fans and understand people who love the World Cup, the most-watched sporting event in the world. Dallas was also one of the sites of the International Broadcast Center, something it would like to host again in 2026.

The 2026 World Cup will also be the first to include 48 teams.

"Our country is prepared to host the World Cup".

The opening goal came soon after, as Saudi Arabia failed to clear a corner and a curling cross in from the left by Golovin picked out an unmarked Gazinsky to head low into the far corner.

The North American bid beat competition from Morocco, which was hoping to become just the second African country to host soccer's biggest worldwide tournament.
