World Cup 2026: US, Canada, Mexico Make Joint Hosting Bid

The three NAFTA countries, United States, Mexico, and Canada, have announced their intention to submit a joint bid to co-host the FIFA World Cup 2026.

If successful, the bid would mark the first time that three countries have hosted the World Cup, but the second time hosted by multiple countries after Japan and South Korea won the bid for 2002.

President of the U.S. Soccer Federation Sunil Gulati said there was broad White House support for the bid. “The president is fully supportive and encouraged us to have this joint bid,” he said. “He is especially pleased that Mexico is part of this bid, and it’s in the last few days that we’ve gotten further encouragement on that.”
