Canada to co-host 2026 World Cup

Canada to co-host 2026 World Cup

We take a look back at the last twelve months in the world of Federation Internationale de Football Association.

Both bids made their final appeals to UEFA voters in Moscow on Tuesday, with Morocco and United expected to get a vast show of support from their respective confederations.

"Nestor Pitana is set to become the second Argentinian referee to participate in two World Cups after Norberto Coerezza, who oversaw two games in 1970 and one in 1978".

Nigeria, playing their 6th World Cup, have only missed one of the last seven tournaments. Government officials argue the event will boost the Russian economy by as much as $31 billion over the next 10 years through increased tourism, investment and ancillary benefits.

"I go back all the way to growing up in London and my start in the game". The 3.6 million attendees remain a World Cup record, despite the fact that only 24 nations competed at the time.

Part of the United bid guaranteed all games would be played on natural grass, which means if Commonwealth Stadium is chosen as a final venue, the artificial turf would be replaced for the tournament. At the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™, he oversaw four fixtures including France-Germany in the quarterfinals. With a handful of games in Mexico and Canada but the majority in the US, the 2026 bid promises the richest and most lucrative tournament in the history of global soccer. The tournament will still take place over 32 days.




Mexico hosted the 1986 World Cup, while the USA was awarded the tournament in 1994 but Canada, who have appeared just once at the tournament, have never hosted.

Three Canadian cities - Edmonton, Montreal, and Toronto - could potentially host matches.

Of the 211 Fifa member nations, 200 cast a vote at the 68th Fifa Congress in Moscow on Wednesday, with the winning bid needing a majority of 104.

The Mexican candidate cities are Guadalajara, Mexico City and Monterrey.

Vancouver will watch from the sidelines after the B.C. government, citing concerns over the possible costs of being a host city, was unable to come to terms with the bid committee. Citing a number of high-profile sponsors dropping FIFA, London newspaper The Independent reported that FIFA's 2018 World Cup sponsorship revenues were down $240 million.
