The 2026 football World Cup will be held in the United States, Mexico and Canada after FIFA’s congress voted overwhelmingly to back the tri-nation joint bid for the tournament and leave Morocco to miss out for the fifth time.

Radio New Zealand reports, the North American bid won 134 votes to the 65 for Morocco. One congress member voted for “neither bid.”

The 2026 tournament will be the first expanded tournament featuring 48 teams, up from the current 32-team tournament, which begins in Russia tomorrow.
