The 2026 World Cup hosted by the United States, Canada and Mexico promises to take the tournament to a new level, delivering more teams, bigger crowds and bumper profits.

The United States Soccer Association included the stadium, which was one of nine sites of the 1994 World Cup (back then it was called Foxboro Stadium), in its list of possible venues for 2026. "Canada, Mexico, and the United States are ready to welcome the world to North America and serve as stewards of the largest FIFA World Cup™ in history".

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

The 24-team women's World Cup, staged in six stadiums across the country, and Toronto's Pan American/Parapan Am Games that drew over 6,000 athletes from 41 countries, were held within weeks of each other in 2015.

Compared to Spain's coaching chaos, the distractions created by Cristiano Ronaldo have become nearly meaningless for Portugal. Spain begin their World Cup campaign against Portugal on Friday in a match live on BBC One (19:00 BST kick-off).

Both teams come into the tournament with a bit of uncertainty surrounding them, with Russian Federation having qualified automatically, and Saudi Arabia having lost their three most recent friendlies coming into the tournament.

Morocco have now failed with five bids to hold the World Cup and are unlikely now to have the financial means to put together another bid for the foreseeable future. Football is known as soccer in the United States.

Los Angeles is practically a lock to be a World Cup host city, and while the Inglewood stadium will be newer, the 92,000-seat Rose Bowl is the stadium in consideration.

"Hosting the 2026 FIFA World Cup is a rare and important moment to demonstrate that we are all truly united through sport", Cordeiro said.

Toronto, Montreal and Edmonton are all candidates cities for games at the tournament that will be hosted by Canada, the USA and Mexico.

Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo, reporting from NY, said: "While the official name of the bid is United 2026, the three potential host nations are right now anything but united".

Alphonso Davies, the soft-spoken 17-year-old who has turned heads ever since he joined the professional ranks two years ago, was selected to represent Canada on the podium as the North American bid made its final push. Thank you so, so much for this incredible honor.

Lenarduzzi said with the World Cup expanding to 48 teams for the 2026 challenge, there is "no reason" why all three host teams should not be given a place.
