Federation Internationale de Football Association will meet with the bid committee over the next two years to determine, by mid or late 2020, the North American cities that will stage the tournament's 80 matches.
The 2026 tournament will be the first expanded tournament featuring 48 teams, up from the current 32-team tournament, which begins in Russian Federation on Thursday.

After considering separate bids for the 2026 World Cup, the federations that govern soccer in Mexico, Canada and the United States chose to launch a cooperative effort to host the tournament in April 2017.

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".
Morocco had pinned its bid on a "European" World Cup in Africa, playing on the north African nation's proximity to Europe. After a drawing of lots, the United Bid will go first. Fox, Fox Sports and Telemundo Deportes have USA broadcast rights to this year's tournament - for which the US national team failed to qualify - and also for 2026. That remains the only World Cup the Canadian men have ever qualified for. "But when I was five years old, a country called Canada welcomed us in", he told the Congress.

With only three teams in each group and each team guaranteed only two games, there is a greater opportunity for teams to collude with each other in the final group-stage matches to secure passage to the knockout round. "And this a really fantastic day for football".
