Here are the cities that will be hosting the 2026 World Cup

U.S., Canada and Mexico to Host World Cup in 2026 With 2026 FIFA World Cup awarded to North American bid, Baltimore moves closer to soccer's biggest stage

"I'm grateful to everyone who has worked so hard to get us to this point".

"I would like to thank the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, His Majesty the King, His Royal Highness the Crown Prince, and my good friend His Excellency Turki Al-Sheikh for your tremendous support of the United bid", said Cordeiro.

The current blueprint calls for Canada and Mexico to stage 10 games each with the USA hosting 60.

The provincial NDP government nixed B.C. Place as a venue for the 2026 FIFA World Cup, citing the lack of cost assurances from FIFA, but Victoria remains in the running as a potential training base ahead of the competition that will take place in June of that year.

The joint bid defeated Morocco's application with 134 of the 200 votes cast at the FIFA Congress in Moscow on Wednesday.

Canada's successful bid to co-host the 2026 World Cup with the United States and Mexico coincides with Calgary travelling further down the road of bidding for the Winter Games of that same year. Several foreign national teams also arranged games in the United States - including Spain against El Salvador in Washington, Japan against Costa Rica in Tampa, Ghana against South Korea in Miami and Portugal against Ireland in East Rutherford, N.J. - on their way to the final tournament in Brazil.

"We are grateful for the chance to bring to life FIFA's new vision for the future of football", said Decio de Maria, President of Mexico Football Federation and Co-Chair of the United Bid.

"And in that spirit we wish all Russian hosts and all the teams competing here the very best of luck".

"FIFA will make the final selection of host cities and match locations for the 2026 FIFA World Cup from the 23 candidates proposed in the United Bid", MetLife Stadium said.

England, like Morocco, knows the feeling of falling short in the bid to host the World Cup. More than 5.8 million tickets are expected to be sold, generating over $2 billion in ticketing revenue, according to the winning bid's projections. But given the increase in the size of the field and FIFA's desire to squeeze every buck out of the tournament, it would be shocking if the host countries were not front and centre. Today, I'm 17 years old and I play for the (Canadian) men's national team.

The $4 billion stadium being built for the Los Angeles Rams, due to open in 2020, is also likely to feature.

Meaning even if you know nothing at all about the game, the sport, the event, you can still sound like an absolute expert by confidently telling your friends that the victor will definitely be one of those who've either been there and done it or won it before. Will this World Cup put the sport over the top and embed it into the American culture to where it can rival the traditional sports?

President Donald Trump welcomed the news, tweeting: "The U.S., together with Mexico and Canada, just got the World Cup".
