World Cup Returning to US After North American Bid Beats Morocco

World Cup Returning to US After North American Bid Beats Morocco

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".

"FIFA will make those decisions in 2020-2021".

The World Cup will expand to 48 teams and 80 games for 2026 and the US will stage 60 of those matches.

"Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of hosting the Fifa World Cup in 2026", said an emotional Carlos Cordeiro, the president of the U.S. soccer federation, on the eve of this summer's tournament in Russia. The lovely game transcends borders and cultures. "Football today is the only victor, and in that spirit, we wish our Russian hosts and all the teams participating here this month, the very best of luck".

The Dutch apparently said they had a lot of Moroccans playing in their league and felt compelled to vote that way. There was one abstention.

The North America bid also had to overcome concerns about the impact of policies from the Trump administration, including attempts to implement a ban on travel by residents of six majority-Muslim countries.

After narrowly missing out for 2022, the most prestigious tournament in world soccer is coming back to the United States in 2026. All of the proposed stadiums exist already.

Perhaps more surprising is the success the North American bid had in the African confederation (CAF).

Large votes are often swayed by small concessions promised to the right number of smaller nations or by regional biases.

The North American bid got 17 low-risk and three medium assessments when it comes to organizing costs, government support as well as human rights and labour standards.

Negotiators scramble to put something together for Trump and Kim
Singapore was tapped to host the summit because of its neutrality and security, the White House had said in May. Both sides were finalizing preparations for the unprecedented summit, which was to kick off at 9 a.m.

Denver is among the cities included in the US bid, but there's no word yet on which cities will hold the matches.

"Not to comment really on the US side, but maybe they felt that they wished to go further in some additional letters which they had received from their president", he added. However, Shanks expects soccer's popularity to continue to grow in the US within the next eight years. It was the first event held in the then-new stadium.

FIFA's hosting selection process was revamped in the wake of recent scandals enveloping the world governing body of soccer.

"My dream is to someday compete in the World Cup, maybe even in my home town of Edmonton". The U.S. will join France, Germany, Brazil, and Italy as nations to host the cup twice, while this will be a record third time for Mexico. We've landed a World Cup. 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.
