"A lot of hard work has really paid off by USA soccer, [the] Mexican Soccer Federation and the Canadian Soccer Federation to bring it to all three host countries for the very first time in World Cup history".

In March, B.C. Premier John Horgan said he was not willing to write a "blank cheque" to have Vancouver host soccer matches for the FIFA World Cup in 2026.

On Wednesday, the joint North American bid (featuring Canada, Mexico, and the U.S.) was voted the overwhelming choice to host the 2026 World Cup.

The total attendance of 3.6 million spectators remains a record for a World Cup, despite the later expansion in size of the tournament from 24 teams to 32 in 1998.

The United 2026 bid has selected 23 host cities, from which the final 16 must be chosen.

Canada has not qualified for the World Cup since 1986 - 10 years after the Olympic Stadium was supposed to have a retractable roof.

Kuffour was part of the Ghana team that reached the second round on their World Cup debut in Germany in 2006, and says that team highlights a certain trend that has held back teams from the continent from realising their fullest potential.

The loss is Morocco's fifth in a World Cup bidding process after previous tries in 1994, 1998, 2006 and 2010. Hosting the 2026 World Cup will be used as an incentive to involve more people in the game, U.S. Soccer's Cordeiro told reporters. "We are humbled by the trust our colleagues in the FIFA family have put in our bid; strengthened by the unity between our three countries and the CONCACAF region; and excited by the opportunity we have to put football on a new and sustainable path for generations to come".

"We will not be ideal but we are looking for uniformity and consistency - but it can not be 100 per cent", said Massimo Busacca, FIFA's head of refereeing. Unless there is an unexpected change, Canada and Mexico's host sites are set.

A major factor in the city's ability to host World Cup games in 2026 is funding from the Alberta government for things like security, transportation and facilities. "Majority have now either retired or grown too old to still be in reckoning for national duty", said Malosolov.

Russian Federation qualified automatically as the host and will be making their fourth appearance at the finals since 1990.

The FA was among the first to congratulate the US' joint bid with Mexico and Canada. There is also no National Football League stadium within Portland that could be used.

The North American bid book published earlier this year proposed the 84,953-capacity MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, just outside New York City for the final.
