After controversial Federation Internationale de Football Association votes gave the tournament to Russia and Qatar in 2018 and 2022 respectively, the governing body promised to have a more open, transparent process this time. "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".

Officials from Federation Internationale de Football Association, soccer's global governing body, met in Moscow Wednesday and voted to accept North America's bid for 2026 over a bid from Morocco.

"He spent a lot of time and a lot of hours working with the highest levels of our government to ensure we did what we needed to do to get the bid here", said Bilello.

Securing their second fourth-place finish in succession was still a cause for some celebration, and it means they will enjoy back-to-back seasons in the UEFA Champions League for the first time since 2009-10. The 3.6 million attendees remain a World Cup record, despite the fact that only 24 nations competed at the time.

"Wembley was great for us last season and we are even more used to that than we are the new stadium".

Of the 23 cities chosen as potential host sites, 15 now have MLS teams.

The 2026 tournament will look very different than it due to its expansion.

Its been 1432 days since Germany lifted the FIFA World Cup in 2014, as the 21st edition of the FIFA World Cup kicks off in Russian Federation at the Luzhniki Stadium. During the next month, the men's national teams will compete in 12 venues in 11 cities around Russian Federation.

A full slate of World Cup action gets underway on Friday, with Spain taking on Portugal as +105 chalk in a crucial Group B clash.
