Upon being awarded with the World Cup, the United 2026 organizing committee unveiled 23 finalists to be among the 16 host cities.

"If you stop and appreciate for a second just the vast number of assurances, guarantees that we had to get from all three governments working together, that is a massive undertaking for one nation, let alone three nations", Cordeiro said after the vote by the Congress of world soccer's governing body Federation Internationale de Football Association in Moscow, where the 2018 World Cup kicks off on Thursday.

The former Manchester United chief executive, who is also UEFA's treasurer, was speaking to reporters after a joint bid from Canada, Mexico and the United States comprehensively beat Morocco in a vote at the FIFA Congress in Moscow. Their lone opponent was Morocco.

It will come 32 years after the US first hosted the 1994 World Cup, an event which kicked off the popularity of the sport in America.

The United States, Mexico and Canada will host soccer's biggest event in 2026.

Navarro Voices Regret for Harsh Words About Canadian Leader
Trudeau sparked tensions with Trump and US officials when he asserted that he wouldn't let the USA bully Canada on trade. Bruce Heyman, a former USA ambassador to Canada, said Mr Navarro had "crossed a line".

As it stands now, 60 games will be played in the United States, with Mexico and Canada hosting 10 each.

"It's always a bit of a stronger bid with more countries, but at the same time if we are talking about England, with their infrastructure, they can host on their own or with the rest of the United Kingdom", he said.

Tyson Fury eyeing title fight before end of 2018
Just boxing again was an achievement for Fury, whose life span out of control after ending Klitschko's nine-and-half year reign. So easy that Fury could afford to joke about it early on and glance out at a scuffle taking place in the crowd.

The 2026 World Cup will have 48 teams playing a total of 80 games - 60 planned across 10 US cities, and 10 games in three cities for each of Canada and Mexico.

Good news for New England soccer fans: The World Cup will more than likely be played at Gillette Stadium in 2026.

And in 2003, the stadium hosted three Women's World Cup games, including a 1-0 US quarterfinal win over Norway. "I mean, to say that we knew it was going to be a landslide was probably unfair, but we knew it was going to go well for us".

Although it would be the first tournament to be hosted by three nations, the vast majority of games will be held in the US. That was the only World Cup that Canada's men's team has ever qualified for. In 2016, the stadium hosted three games of the Copa América Centenario.

In qualification for the 2018 World Cup, the U.S. surprisingly finished fifth in a group of six countries in the fifth round of qualification, only ahead of Trinidad & Tobago.
