A combined bid from the United States, Mexico, and Canada won the hosting rights for the 2026 FIFA World Cup over Morocco by a vote of 134-65.

“The U.S. together with Mexico and Canada, just got the World Cup. Congratulations - a great deal of hard work,” wrote President Donald Trump on Twitter following the announcement.

The North America bid included a pledge of record crowds, record revenues, and a record $11 billion in profits for FIFA.
