◼️ FIFA decided, by majority decision, to hold the 2026 World Cup in North America. Morocco, the other candidacy, was relegated.
What was known was an open secret ended up being confirmed this Wednesday. FIFA unveiled the headquarters of the 2026 World Cup, which will finally be played in Mexico, Canada, and USA. The North American candidacy prevailed before the one of Morocco in the voting realized during the Congress of the FIFA.
To take into account, the 2026 World Cup will be the first with 48 nations instead of the usual 32, so the three countries that will host the event will have many venues for the large number of matches.
The Joint Candidacy Committee, made up of Mexico, the United States and Canada, reduced the list of postulated venues to 23, which must be cut to 16 after having been selected by FIFA to organize the maximum football event. The distribution would be of three locations in Mexico and Canada, while the United States would be the main host with 10 stadiums.
