North America to Hold the 2026 FIFA World Cup

North America to Hold the 2026 FIFA World Cup

Meaning even if you know nothing at all about the game, the sport, the event, you can still sound like an absolute expert by confidently telling your friends that the victor will definitely be one of those who've either been there and done it or won it before.

In 2026, however, there won't be any official World Cup festivities in Chicago, after Mayor Rahm Emanuel pulled out of the North American bid in March.

There will also be significant costs associated with security for the event, but Tory said the city is counting on the partnerships with other governments to make that happen.

MLS commissioner Don Garber called it "a monumental step in our collective mission to further advance the game of soccer in North America" and added "there's no doubt that World Cup 2026 will elevate the sport of soccer to entirely new levels".

What surface will the tournament be played on?

Given how many rules and traditions the Royal Family are said to adhere to, it's little wonder Meghan still needs some guidance. Australia and New Zealand welcomed the trip, saying that both their nations would warmly receive the royal couple .

Owners: Triple Crown victor Justify will race again
Sent off as the 4-5 favorite, Justify ran the longest race of the series in 2:28.18 and paid $3.60, $3.50 and $2.80. He's the first Triple Crown victor to face that many rivals in the 1½-mile Belmont. "This ran a tremendous race".

But that too was brought to a close by the midway stage, when Kerr cleaned her up to pick the first of her five wickets. Kerr, whose highest ODI score before this series had been 30, signed for Kia Super League side Southern Vipers in May.

"We know that we have the best stadium in the country", Iveson said. The "United" bid from North America went in as the front-runner after inspectors gave it a score of 4 out of 5 in terms of the countries' ability and readiness to organize an excellent tournament. Filato said that the possibility of converting the artificial pitch into real grass is being evaluated.

It may still be eight years away, but the expectation of seeing Canada co-hosting, and actually playing in, a men's World Cup is already palpable. FIFA refused to budge and the complaint was eventually dropped, but not before the lawyer for the women's players slammed FIFA and the Canadian Soccer Association. "I am convinced that the scandals of the past we will not see again". The United States, which hosted the 1994 World Cup, is to host 60 of the 80 matches, including those in the knockout phase, while Canada and Mexico will get just 10 group-stage matches each.

Filato explained that an evaluation found that of those 10, between three and six matches could be held in Montreal, though the numbers could change.

It will be hard for many American fans to watch the games this summer in Russian Federation but today's news brings hope to the fanbase that better days are on the horizon.

The North American proposal had lined up high-profile backers, including soccer star David Beckham, who said that "the World Cup deserves to be in great places", and U.S. President Donald Trump, who combined support for the bid with a veiled threat to those that planned to vote for competing offers.
