FIFA 2026 World Cup in North America!

Current World Daily

For the first time since 1994 the men’s World Cup is coming back to North America.
FIFA’s 200-plus member associations voted to award 2026 World Cup hosting rights to the United States, Canada and Mexico.

It seems like yesterday President Trump tweeted: "The U.S. has put together a STRONG bid w/ Canada & Mexico for the 2026 World Cup. It would be a shame if countries that we always support were to lobby against the U.S. bid. Why should we be supporting these countries when they don't support us (including at the United Nations)?"

The North American bid – the product of over a decade of planning and campaigning – beat out one rival bid, Morocco’s, by a vote of 134 to 65.

Dear Presidents, General Secretaries and members of our FIFA family, Like you, we are thrilled that the FIFA World Cup™ is coming to North America in 2026!
Canada, Mexico and the United States have been granted the honor of hosting the world’s most extraordinary sporting event for many reasons, but one of the biggest was because of the passion of our fans across our three countries.
Yes, you had a major impact! Your enthusiasm—not just for your own teams, but for teams from all over the world—helped us demonstrate to FIFA and football federations across the globe that we will be able to deliver the absolute best experience for players and fans in 2026.
Thank you for being on this journey with us. Over the next eight years, we look forward to working together with everyone that is part of our football family—especially you and fans everywhere—to host the greatest celebration of football the world has ever seen!
