Canada is to co-host 2026 World Cup with the U.S., Mexico also part of successful bid.
FIFA member associations gathering in Moscow on Wednesday voted 134-65 in favour of the joint North American bid by Canada, the U.S. and Mexico to host the 2026 World Cup, beating out Morocco. There was one No vote.
Morocco, which has now lost five bid campaigns, was classy in defeat — congratulating the North American winners.
Mexico has twice hosted the World Cup, in 1970 and 1986. The U.S. hosted in 1994.
Canada will co-host ten games in Toronto, Montreal and Edmonton.
