2026 bids for World Cup are the United States-Mexico-Canada and Morocco
MOSCOW, RUSSIA (FIFA.com) – As it gears up for the opening match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup™, Moscow hosted meeting number 7 of the FIFA Council this Sunday, 10 June.
FIFA’s strategic body decided on a number of important competition matters, chief of which was another key step in the bidding process for the 2026 FIFA World Cup™.
Following the publication of the Bid Evaluation Report by the 2026 Bid Evaluation Task Force, the FIFA Council designated the two bids – the one jointly submitted by the Canadian Soccer Association, the Mexican Football Association and the United States Soccer Federation, as well as the one submitted by the Moroccan Football Association – to be voted on by the 68th FIFA Congress.
On Wednesday, 13 June, the FIFA Congress will determine whether to award the right to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup to one of the two candidates. In the event that the 68th FIFA Congress decides not to choose either of the candidates, FIFA will then launch a new procedure by inviting all member associations – except the four that are taking part in the current process – to submit a bid to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup.
More details on Wednesday’s procedure are available here.
