The United States, Canada and Mexico will jointly host the 2026 FIFA World Cup after their proposal saw off Morocco’s bid in the race for the hosting right.
The ‘United 2026’ bid emerged victorious with 134 votes compared to 65 for Morocco.
The tournament will be the biggest in World Cup history with 48 teams playing 80 matches over 34 days.
After winning the hosting right alongside Canada and Mexico, US Soccer president Carlos Cordeiro said: “Football is the only victor. We are all united in football.”
“Thank you so, so much for this incredible honour. Thank you for entrusting us with this privilege.” He added.
