7 monthes ago   |   By Yahoo Sports

North America will host the 2026 World Cup after FIFA voters overwhelmingly opted Wednesday for the financial and logistical certainty of a United States-led bid over a risky Moroccan proposal for the first 48-team tournament. The soccer showpiece will return to the U.S. for the first time since 1994 after gaining 134 votes, while Morocco got 65 at the FIFA Congress in Moscow, where the 2018 tournaments starts on Thursday.

U.S., Mexico, Canada score 2026 World Cup

7 monthes ago   |   By Yahoo Sports

June 13 - The United States, Canada and Mexico were all chosen Wednesday to host the 2026 World Cup, a first for one of the world's premier sporting tournaments.

Cuba, Slovenia and Spain abstained from voting, while Iran voted for none of the bids. "The U.S., together with Mexico and Canada, just got the World Cup," President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday. "Congratulations - a great deal of hard work!" The 2026 World Cup will...

US, Mexico and Canada to jointly host 2026 World Cup

7 monthes ago   |   By Yahoo Sports

North America will host the 2026 World Cup after FIFA voters overwhelmingly opted for the financial and logistical certainty of a United States-led bid over a risky Moroccan proposal for the first 48-team tournament.

The vote by football federations was public, in contrast to secrecy surrounding the ballot by FIFA's elected board members for the 2018 and 2022 hosts, Russia and Qatar, in 2010. The U.S. proposed staging 60 out...

With 2026 World Cup in hand, the real work begins for US Soccer

7 monthes ago   |   By Yahoo Sports

The United States couldn't get into the 2018 World Cup, but on Wednesday the 2026 World Cup was brought to the U.S. Now what can we do with it? After the Men's National Team failed to reach this summer's tournament, which kicks off Thursday in Russia, the United Bid (a cooperative between the U.S., Mexico and Canada) won the right to host the 2026 World Cup. Now, the sport's power brokers need to build on that victory. It's still undetermined if all three hosts will get automatic berths, as they have in the past. Considering America's glaring absence in Russia, it's vital U.S. Soccer...

United bid, Infantino are winners from 2026 vote

7 monthes ago   |   By Yahoo Sports

The United bid of Canada, Mexico and the United States was awarded hosting status for the 2026 World Cup, which will be the first comprising 48 nations and, quite likely, the most lucrative in history. Partly because people often fear the worst and, possibly, because there was some politics going on, especially via the rhetoric of President Trump; the narrative whereby he might cost the United bid the 2026 World Cup was a popular one in some quarters. One very senior FIFA source went so far as to say that, if the vote were held then, it would likely go in favour of Morocco. Whether you...

Squad Selection: How strong will FC Dallas look against Sporting KC?

7 monthes ago   |   By Yahoo Sports

FC Dallas is getting some much needed relief in the schedule now that the World Cup has started but they'll be back in action this weekend in the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup when they travel north to take on Sporting Kansas City. As with all Open Cup games, the international roster limits do make this one tricky for Oscar Pareja and company but seeing as how three of their nine available internationals are injured, it may not be that difficult to sort out. Pareja has shifted to a 4-3-3 as of late with getting Mauro Diaz involved in the attack as a false wing on the left with Ryan Hollingshead...
