USA, Mexico and Canada to host 2026 World Cup

The United bid by Canada Mexico and the United States was awarded the 2026 FIFA World Cup

Local leaders Chiefs President Mark Donovan, Sporting Kansas City President and CEO Jake Reid, Mayor Sly James of Kansas City, Mo., and Mayor David Alvey of Kansas City, Kan., are hosting a news conference, and may discuss the possibility that the Kansas City metro could host a match.

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.

The English FA revealed they voted for the successful bid.

United States soccer president Carlos Corderio said after his bid's success on Wednesday: "It's a bit emotional for us today".

When the 2026 World Cup kicks off with the opening game in Toronto, Canadians will get to experience first-hand the culmination of several years of work to put their men's soccer program onto the biggest stage.

In a vote of more than 200 member nations of soccer's governing body in Moscow, the so-called United Bid beat out Morocco, 134-65.

An FA spokesperson said: "We congratulate the USA, Canada and Mexico on winning the bid to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup".

Inflation declines to 11.61% in May
The RBI in its bid to tighten inflation, increased repo rate last week, for the first time in more than four years. This, it noted was down by 0.2 per cent from the rate recorded in April, which was 10.9 per cent.

North Korea praises Donald Trump's 'enthusiasm' after historic summit
It wouldn't be easy to expect that North Korea would give up its nuclear programme and stockpiles. Pompeo, after landing in South Korea , met for almost an hour with Gen.

Fed Raises Interest Rates for Second Time this Year
Fast-forward to April of this year when data showed that USA job openings jumped to a record high, far outpacing hiring. The unemployment rate in May was 3.8%, its lowest since 2000, while inflation was just below the Fed's 2% target.

"What can really be the legacy, whether we host matches or are just involved with this in some other grand scheme, that can make sure that Baltimore and the state of Maryland have maximized the potential of being a part of the World Cup?". Jacksonville was named among the initial candidates to host games in the 80-game competition, but the city was cut from the candidate list in October 2017.

Bernier, who is employed by the Montreal Impact as a coach in its youth academy, said the arrival of the tournament in North America and potentially in Montreal will give a boost to young Canadian players with the talent and the drive to play professionally.

Mexico has previously hosted two World Cups, in 1970 and 1986. "And my dream is to some day compete in the World Cup, maybe even in my home town of Edmonton".

Portland was not chosen as one of the finalists to host World Cup matches.

The Fifa World Cup kicks off this weekend in Russian Federation, the undisputed number one sporting event on the planet, bigger than any of its contenders, generating more revenue coverage and eyeballs watching than all the other pretenders. Both the United States and Canada failed to qualify for this year's World Cup.

Others saw the event as an opportunity to heal North America's frayed relations since U.S. President Donald Trump came to office 18 months ago promising to build a wall on the southern border with Mexico to stem illegal immigration and to tear up the North American Free Trade Agreement, known as NAFTA.
