Canada To Co-Host 2026 FIFA World Cup

Canada has won the right to co-host the 2026 World Cup.

FIFA’s member associations have voted in favour of the joint North American bid by Canada, the U.S. and Mexico, over that of contender Morocco. The vote took place today at the FIFA Congress in Moscow.

The vote was 134 to 65 with one no-vote.

“Football today is the only victor,” said U.S. Soccer president Carlos Cordeiro.

The current blueprint calls for Canada and Mexico to stage 10 games each, with the U.S. hosting 60, but that plan could change over time.

Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal would serve as Canadian host cities for the men’s soccer showcase, expanded to 48 teams for the 2026 tournament.
