The United States, Canada and Mexico have been confirmed as the hosts of the World Cup in 2026.

The North American bid earned a total of 134 votes, while Morocco garnered 65.

The last time hosting duties was shared was in 2002 when Japan and South Korea shared hosting duties.

“On behalf of our United Bid, thank you so very much for this incredible honour. Thank you for entrusting us with this privilege, the privilege of hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2026,” an emotional US Soccer president Carlos Cordeiro said on stage after the vote.

“The beautiful game transcends borders and cultures. Football today is the only victor.”

Morrocco was passed on as a host as they were deemed high-risk and the North American bid was safer and had more stadiums and facilities.
