World Cup matches won't come to Jacksonville in 2026, but the First Coast could still receive an impact from FIFA's vote Wednesday to award hosting rights to the United Bid of the United States, Canada and Mexico.

After 32 years, the World Cup will return to the U.S.in 2026, but Chicago won't host any games of the soccer tournament this time around.

CONCACAF, the governing body for soccer in North America, Central America and the Caribbean, has seven slots in the World Cup. Players who are now 12-18 are now presented with the massive opportunity of representing their country on the biggest stage in the world, and, thanks to a much more reserved announcement several weeks back, they now have several more pathways to work toward doing just that. Although just four million players are registered in the USA, despite a population of a third of a billion, Cordeiro said he believes that amount can be tripled by bringing the game to our "disenfranchised and underserved".

The tournament's first game, between host Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia, begins at 6 a.m. PT at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

There will also be significant costs associated with security for the event, but Tory said the city is counting on the partnerships with other governments to make that happen. "Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of hosting the World Cup in 2026".

Rosannie Filato, the member of Montreal's executive committee responsible for sports and recreation, said that because there are only three Canadian cities included in the bid, she believes Montreal has a good chance of being selected.

"The people of North America have always welcomed me". But FIFA President Gianni Infantino suggested the split of games could change.

Canada will host men's World Cup matches for the first time, while Mexico gets its first taste of the event since 1986. "And ideally along the way we can qualify for a World Cup in 2022 and get a precursor to what it's going to look like in 2026". "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".

To prepare for the 2015 Women's World Cup, the stadium got new locker rooms, which are now used by visiting CFL teams, Jevne said. "Kids who are now 8, 10, 12 years old can all dream of potentially playing for a national team".

Here's everything you need to know about the game.
