US, Mexico and Canada to host 2026 World Cup finals

"We'll get the team performing and we'll qualify if we have to", John Herdman told CTV's Your Morning Wednesday, just about an hour after the announcement that the joint bid of Canada, Mexico and the United States had beaten Morocco to host the 48-team tournament.

The North American bid beat competition from Morocco, which was hoping to become just the second African country to host soccer's biggest worldwide tournament.

The U.S., Canada and Mexico will host the 2026 World Cup.

FIFA's official list for the 2018 World Cup showed nine of the 32 teams chose base camps separate from any of the tournament venues, some of them in cities with fewer than 100,000 residents. I just think it's going to blossom having the world's biggest event in this country.

Venues for the 2026 World Cup, which is slated to be the first WC to feature 48 teams, will be chosen from 23 stadiums that now exist or are already under construction.

According to Business Insider, the US will whittle a list of 17 metropolitan down to 10 to host games.

The Olympic Stadium, as well as 10 of the other stadiums being considered across North America, have artificial surfaces.

Before the 1994 World Cup in the United States, Jacksonville served as the host for a friendly match between the USA team and Moldova, played at Wolfson Park while the old Gator Bowl underwent extensive reconstruction.

Canada's men's national team has only qualified once for the World Cup, in 1986. "That is something over the next eight years that we'll look at from a (Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment) standpoint, an Exhibition Place standpoint". "If we could put the question of the province's support behind us, then we can make sure that we check all the other boxes and make it to the final 16". "If given the opportunity, I know they will welcome you".

Gianluigi Buffon, who won the World Cup with Italy in 2006, is also one of the tournament's legendary No. 1s, as is Spain's Iker Casillas, who lifted the trophy in South Africa in 2010.
