Local leaders react to North America’s winning bid for 2026 World Cup

2018 FIFA World Cup kicks off in a few hours

Fox Sports COO Eric Shanks on the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation and the announcement the 2026 World Cup will be held in Canada, Mexico and America.

"At the 68th Fifa Congress, member associations have voted in favour of the North American United bid, which will now organise the 2026 Fifa World Cup". Their lone opponent was Morocco.

The chance to co-host the 2026 World Cup is an opportunity to put Canada on the world stage, politicians said Wednesday after soccer's global governing body voted in favour of a joint North American bid for the event.

The socks are red and Montopoli wore them when Canada won the right to host the 2015 Women's World Cup as well as the 2012 and 2016 women's Olympic bronze-medal matches. And now here's eight years where you can prepare for a World Cup in the United States, and in Mexico and Canada, there's a whole industry that's going to develop around this tournament.

"This will do a lot to grow football for the kids and sharing it and being united with the United States and Canada is huge and special", Campos told ESPN. The leaders of Mexico and Canada gleefully cheered the outcome, emphasizing unity with the United States.

Baltimore and M&T Bank Stadium fared well in FIFA's assessment of potential game venues, and the city is considered the favorite to host the World Cup Team Workshop, which brings together delegations from all 48 competing nations for a pretournament introduction to the World Cup's organization. The stadium has also hosted World Cup qualifying games in the past.

EDT Monday in the U.S.) with a handshake, an image sure to be devoured from Washington to Pyongyang and beyond. The first-ever meeting between a USA president and a North Korean leader was to kick off at 9 a.m.

Although it would be the first tournament to be hosted by three nations, the vast majority of games will be held in the US.

If we're spitballing, it's hard to imagine the United States being forced to qualify for a World Cup in which it is the predominant host.

As it stands now, 60 games will be played in the United States, with Mexico and Canada hosting 10 each.

Both bids were given a last chance to make their case with 15-minute presentations in front of Congress, at the Moscow Expocentre, where the North America bid pledged their tournament would generate an 11 billion dollar profit, while Morocco said theirs would make 5 billion. Even if Trump wins re-election, his presidency would end before the 2026 World Cup.

The 87,000-capacity MetLife Stadium outside NY - home of the NFL's Giants and Jets - is proposed for the final. "We are humbled by the trust our colleagues in the FIFA family have put in our bid; strengthened by the unity between our three countries and the CONCACAF region; and excited by the opportunity we have to put football on a new and sustainable path for generations to come".
