The 2026 FIFA World Cup is heading to North America after a joint bid from the United States, Canada, and Mexico defeated Morocco in a landslide vote on Wednesday. Kansas City and Cincinnati are the only candidate cities in the Midwest.

"What's distinct about Montreal, and Federation Internationale de Football Association actually underlined it in our candidacy, is that we are the only francophone city", said Filato.

She believes the city, and the Olympic Stadium, will be ready for the tournament, due in part to financial guarantees from the federal government.

The last time the US hosted the World Cup was in 1994, with Brazil winning the tournament at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

The joint bid pitched a near shutout in the Americas, winning 38 of 39 votes cast.

"I would like to thank the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, His Majesty the King, His Royal Highness the Crown Prince, and my good friend His Excellency Turki Al-Sheikh for your tremendous support of the United bid", said Cordeiro.

Soccer fans are invited to celebrate the big announcement with a beer on Sporting KC, No Other Pub and Anheuser-Busch from 5:30-6:30 p.m.at No Other Pub in the Power and Light District.

The majority of the 80 matches in the North American bid would be played in the United States, who hosted the 1994 FIFA World Cup.

Edmonton's hopes of becoming a host city for the 2026 FIFA World Cup rest on a final vote Wednesday morning in Moscow.

"There's a tremendous amount of ancillary events that go on around the World Cup", said Rick Catlett, president and chief executive officer of Gator Bowl Sports.

All matches from the Quarterfinal on, including the World Cup Final, will be played in the United States.

Canada will host men's World Cup matches for the first time.

In 2026, however, there won't be any official World Cup festivities in Chicago, after Mayor Rahm Emanuel pulled out of the North American bid in March.

FIFA's hosting selection process was revamped in the wake of recent scandals enveloping the world governing body of soccer. We've landed a World Cup.

"I'm a proud Canadian citizen and my dream is to one play in the World Cup, maybe even in my hometown of Edmonton", said Davies, whose parents fled the civil war in Liberia. The US, Mexico and Canada received 134 votes (67 percent) with the Morocco bid earning 65 votes.

When Canada finally gets to that day eight years from now, we'll all be able to point to this year, 2018, as the one that changed everything for Canadian soccer.

USA president Donald Trump tweeted his congratulations, in between tweets on OPEC oil prices and how cutting military exercises in South Korea will "save a fortune".
