US, Canada And Mexico Will Co-host The 2026 World Cup

It's official — the 2026 World Cup will be held in North America.

On Wednesday, FIFA members voted to accept a joint bid from the U.S., Canada and Mexico to host the tournament. The other country in the running was Morocco. 

As The New York Times notes, this will be the first time the World Cup will be co-hosted by three different countries. 

The last time multiple nations hosted was in 2002 with South Korea and Japan.

Sixty of the tournament's 80 games will be played in the U.S., and Canada and Mexico will split the remaining 20. The last time the World Cup was played in the U.S. was back in 1994.
