USMNT, United Bid receive major lift with 2026 World Cup approval

USMNT, United Bid receive major lift with 2026 World Cup approval”

After narrowly missing out for 2022, the most prestigious tournament in world soccer is coming back to the United States in 2026.

While host nations have traditionally been granted automatic qualification for the World Cup, the decision to give automatic berths to Canada, Mexico and the United States of America will be made by the FIFA Council in the future along with details for the rest of the qualifying process in the rest of the world. Leaders of the Morocco bid said they expected an African tournament to generate $5 billion in revenue.

The winning bid submitted to Federation Internationale de Football Association established that Canada and Mexico will each host 10 matches, leaving 60 matches to be staged on USA soil, including every match from the quarterfinal stage through to the championship match.

Canada staged the Women's World Cup in 2015.

One local soldier was also wounded when they were attacked by mortars and small arms fire, added the statement. The US military says its forces operate on an "advise and assist" mission with the Somali National Army.

The vote at FIFA's annual congress, held this year in Moscow, came a day before the start of the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation. The White House provided U.S. Soccer president Carlos Cordeiro with three separate letters that Cordeiro showed to delegates, containing guarantees from Trump that any immigration policies relating to predominantly Muslim countries would impose no restriction affecting the tournament.

"Hosting a FIFA World CupTM is an extraordinary honor and privilege", said Steven Reed, President of Canada Soccer and Co‐Chair of the United Bid. Both bids were of a very high quality and we welcome the fact that the bidding process was both open and transparent.

The president of the Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF), Fouzi Lekjaa, stated, "Morocco is pleased to have presented a solid bid where football is at the centre of an authentic, profitable FIFA World Cup with a strong legacy".

"We cast our vote for the "United" bid as we believe the independent technical assessment made its advantages very clear". "This is an incredible, and incredibly important, the moment for football in North America and beyond", said Carlos Cordeiro, the president of USA football was quoted as saying by ESPN.
