FIFA members voted to choose the venue for the largest football festival in the world in 2026 between two representatives: the alliance “Canadia-America-Mexico” and Morocco. With 134/210 votes, the Canadia-America-Mexico alliance will be the host of the 2026 World Cup, following the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
The 3 countries ‘joint venture’, Canada, America & Mexico has the right to host the 2026 World Cup with Morocco’s ‘rivals’, making the promise of a difficult refusal to FIFA, that is to make more than $ 11 billion in profits. .
2026 is also the first time the World Cup will be held for 48 teams to attend instead of 32 as it is today. With the increasing number of teams participating, the 3 countries that share the same organization seem to be more logical and more complete.
This is the first time a hand alliance has won the World Cup. Earlier, the Japan-Korea alliance had the honor of becoming the host of the 2002 World Cup, the first World Cup held in Asia.
However, the results are not foreseen when the North American alliance is too strong in many aspects such as economy, sports and organizational experience.
During the election, the Canadia-America-Mexico alliance promised to bring in £ 8.1 billion if it won the World Cup 2026. This figure is nearly double the amount FIFA will gain if Morocco wins the election, only about 4, 48 billion pounds.
Mexico used to host the World Cup in 1970 and 1986, while the United States had a great success in the 1994 World Cup. Canada had never hosted the World Cup but recently had the experience of organizing a sports festival of its own namely International – Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics.
In contrast, the rival of the North American alliance – Morocco – only once held a major football festival, the African football championship in 1988.
