Mexico, U.S. and Canada To Host 2026 World Cup


The FIFA World Cup is coming back to North America in 2026. FIFA, world soccer’s governing body award the hosting rights to a combined bid from the United States, Mexico, and Canada. The three countries will bring the tournament to North America for the first time since 1994, with most of the matches, including the final, being held in the United States.

Carlos Cordeiro, the president of U.S. Soccer wiped tears as he thanked FIFA. “It was a very emotional moment for everyone,” Cordeiro said later, recalling the devastation he felt in 2010 when the United States failed to secure the right to stage the 2022 World Cup, losing to Qatar in a much-criticized voting process.

The 2026 World Cup will be the first time it is hosted by three countries, the first time it has a 48-team format (up from 32 teams).

This will be the first time Canada hosts a World Cup, while the U.S. has only hosted once in 1994, and Mexico has hosted twice in 1970 and 1986.
