FIFA members voted to award the 2026 World Cup jointly to the United States, Mexico, and Canada. Is this joint arrangement a good idea? Scroll down to see the results.
The three countries that make up the North American continent will jointly host the 2026 FIFA World Cup. After contemplating three separate bids, the soccer federations of Mexico, the United States, and Canada agreed to launch a single, collaborative effort. Their toils paid off after their joint bid received 134 votes, or 67 percent, against the 65 votes from Morocco. The agreement means that Canada and Mexico will each host 10 matches, and the United States will host the last 60, including the FIFA final match.
The North American bid was a favorite from the beginning, as its estimated costs are projected to be much lower than estimates from the Moroccan bid, another favorite. The prospect of lucrative North American sponsors from Canada, Mexico, and the United States also factored heavily into the decision.
Do you think this joint arrangement is a good idea? 47% of people said, “get everyone involved!” While 53% think that it should have just been the US. Read more about North America jointly hosting the 2026 FIFA World Cup on the Huffington Post here.
