USA, Canada and Mexico to host 2026 FIFA World Cup

Ahead of tomorrow's World Cup in Russia, FIFA has announced that the U.S., Mexico, and Canada have won a joint bid to host the 2026 World Cup, reports NBC.

It's still undetermined if all three hosts will get automatic berths, as they have in the past.

Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo, reporting from NY, said: "While the official name of the bid is United 2026, the three potential host nations are right now anything but united".

Schmidt, who has played professionally in Frankfurt, Germany, for four years, believes Edmonton is well-positioned to co-host the worldwide soccer event.

"It's great for the country and great for soccer in America", he said.

Tory pointed to the city's recent experience hosting the Pan Am/Parapan Am Games in 2015 and the Invictus Games in 2017 as blueprints for making the proper arrangements for the World Cup, though he expects the 2026 tournament to be narrower in scope than the Pan Am Games, given the tournament will be confined to a single principle venue, BMO Field, and a few smaller sites for practices. Canada and Mexico would then host ten games each. The U.S. hosted in 1994.

Jacksonville was named among the initial candidates to host games in the 80-game competition, but the city was cut from the candidate list in October 2017.

After considering separate bids for the 2026 World Cup, the federations that govern soccer in Mexico, Canada and the United States chose to launch a cooperative effort to host the tournament in April 2017. In not many people's lifetime did they ever experience a home World Cup and Canadians are going to get it. We've landed a World Cup.

Morocco Loses to U.S, Canada & Mexico
The 2026 World Cup could turn out to be one of the most significant developments to American soccer in a long time. The world's biggest sporting event could be on its way to Edmonton. "It is a nice message".

U.S. Government Bonds Fall After Fed Raises Rates
The Fed expects unemployment to fall to 3.6% this year , and, said Powell, " Most people who want to find jobs are finding them". It kept borrowing costs that low after the financial crisis to encourage businesses and consumers to spend and grow the economy.

Uber will be able to identify drunken passengers
Uber patents tech that would identify drunk passengers before they get in the auto by analyzing a number of factors. The premise of the software is to use a learned algorithm to determine a user's state of inebriation.

This will lead to varying temperatures and conditions, depending on where games are played. Tapping into '94, nobody expected [MLS] to be where it is now.

"I'm excited that that's the case".

Tory said the city has yet to invest any money in the venture. The tournament has been jointly hosted only once before, by Japan and Korea in 2002.

They have eight years to do so. It's a huge opportunity to put this city and country on the map. Three cities each in Canada and Mexico will also host games.

Pulisic, McKennie, Adams and Acosta, plus youngsters such as Josh Sargent and PSG's Queens-bred Timothy Weah, will be in their prime when the World Cup comes stateside. Former U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati told ESPN the most important time in the U.S. capitalizing on 2026 starts today.

Thirty-two national teams are participating in the World Cup football championships in Russian Federation. "That's more important in so many ways than the 31 or 32 days of the event", Gulati said.

President Donald Trump supported the joint World Cup bid, though he also drew a rebuke from Federation Internationale de Football Association in April after he tweeted that "it would be a shame if countries that we always support were to lobby against the USA bid". I can go on and on about what this sport means.

"They have at their disposal not only the financial resources but, more importantly, the policing and security resources to make sure we do that well", he said. "[In] 2026 we may be having a different discussion".
