U.S., Mexico, & Canada to Host 2026 World Cup

Little fellow’ Leo Messi & Argentina to advance to World Cup semi-finals in #MatchMourinho

The FIFA 2018 World Cup has kicked off in Moscow, after an opening ceremony which saw Russian President Vladimir Putin and FIFA chief Gianni Infantino welcome fans to Russia and promise "football will conquer the world." .

The soccer showpiece will return to the USA for the first time since 1994 after gaining 134 votes, while Morocco got 65 at the FIFA Congress in Moscow, where the 2018 tournaments starts on Thursday.

"It was actually emotional because as somebody who grew up watching and playing soccer, I know it's a huge to get an event like the World Cup and I know the effect that it's going to have". That event set attendance and television viewership records and helped kick-start the rapid growth of men's professional soccer in the country.

They begin their Premier League season at home to West Ham before facing Crystal Palace, Brighton and Leicester.

The joint bid had been the front-runner for the 48-team tournament from the moment a North American coalition was first mooted two years ago, and there have been spells when it has looked like the only credible candidate. The United States is likely to have 10 cities selected to host games, while Mexico and Canada are expected to each have three.

Future trading and customs arrangements have become perhaps the most sensitive issue in the UK's negotiations with Brussels . The proposed legislation will be sent back to peers on Monday.

Nashville has recently hosted World Cup Qualifying matches and CONCACAF Gold Cup matches.

U.S. Soccer has spent the past decade-plus trying to return the World Cup to this country for the first time since 1994.

The regional bid proved more appealing this time and the North Americans even collected 11 votes from Africa.

"From the big picture standpoint, this is going to be a relatively easy, low-priced event to bring to North America and bring to Boston". Federation Internationale de Football Association will also be making the final selection of host cities for the 2026 competition from the 23 candidates proposed in the United Bid.

The 2026 World Cup final will go down in Dallas, Los Angeles, or New York/New Jersey. Newly elected U.S. Soccer president Carlos Cordeiro said multiple times that he did not believe Trump's stances would have an effect on the voting process.
