The 2026 World Cup Will Be Held In USA, Canada And Mexcio

USA, Canada and Mexico have won the right to host the 2026 World Cup.

At a FIFA Congress on Wednesday morning, 67% voted in favour of the 'United Bid'. 33% of delegates voted for Morocco to host the tournament. The FAI voted in favour of the United Bid.

The event will be the first World Cup to feature 48 teams.

There will be 16 host cities, ten of those being in the US. The other venues will be split between Canada and Mexico.

The final is scheduled to be played at the METLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. It is the home of NFL sides the New York Giants and New York Jets.

The Moroccan bid had been considered as a real danger to the US-led bid. In its favour was a convenient time zone and more compact geography in comparison to the United Bid.

Morocco's bid featured 14 stadiums, nine of which would have had to be purpose built for the tournament.
