The joint bid defeated Morocco's application with 134 of the 200 votes cast at the FIFA Congress in Moscow on Wednesday. Not every time. But I asked Carlos Cordeiro today after they had won, does he think that U.S. Soccer, the men's national team will be in position to compete to win that World Cup, in 2026, and he sort of said yes.
Seventeen sites across the United States will host, including Philadelphia and East Rutherford, NJ, which will host the 2026 World Cup Final at MetLife Stadium. Hosting World Cups and Olympic Games is openly a politicians' prestige-burnishing project now, not only for Russia's president Vladimir Putin or Qatar's Emir, seeking soft power from hosting in 2022. Another three are cities that will have expansion teams coming into MLS.
The United 2026 bid is led by the USA and they will provide at least 10 of the 16 host cities for the tournament. There was no professional league, numerous national team players came from New Jersey and California, watching live professional games from Europe was almost impossible, and the World Cup ratings from 1990 in Italy were miniscule. Mexico played host to the 1970 and 1986 World Cup.
The move is significant for both the United States and Canada, with each team failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, which gets underway on Thursday.
The United States held the World Cup in 1994 while Mexico held it in 1986. Under the terms of the bid, Canada and Mexico will each host 10 matches.

Trudeau's criticism will cost Canada 'a lot of money'
He claims these unfair trade practices cost American jobs and somehow create a national security risk by weakening producers.
A spokesman for Ontario's incoming premier said Doug Ford is looking forward to the prospect of hosting games in the province, but did not respond to questions about funding. Morocco's bid garnered a score of 2.7, along with a stark warning from the inspection team that "the amount of new infrastructure required for the Morocco 2026 bid to become reality can not be overstated". He noted more has to happen before the Alberta capital makes the cut of host cities by 2020. "Together-in partnership with our Candidate Host Cities, the Member Associations, and FIFA-we will use this platform to unite the world around football and help create a new and sustainable blueprint for the future of FIFA World Cups™".
As a result, Fifa's executive committee is no longer responsible for the final say on which country is awarded a World Cup. That's the spirit of the World Cup.
The United bid was always the favourite, but triumphed by a larger than anticipated number after heavy support in Asia and Europe as well as in the Americas.
Shawnigan Lake School has hosted numerous Canadian national team rugby and rowing camps, as well as Vancouver Canucks development camps.
