United States, Canada and Mexico to jointly host 2026 World Cup

39;Global superstar' Neymar is one to watch during the World Cup 2018

Moscow's streets saw the first major influx of football enthusiasts yesterday, when fans from Mexico, Chile, Argentina, the United Kingdom and from many other countries came out to express support for their teams.

World Cup matches won't come to Jacksonville in 2026, but the First Coast could still receive an impact from FIFA's vote Wednesday to award hosting rights to the United Bid of the United States, Canada and Mexico.

The North American bid received 134 FIFA Congress votes to Morocco's 65.

Morocco's hopes of hosting the 2026 World Cup foundered on the failure to secure a united African vote as the country lost in its fifth attempt to stage the global event, the north African country's bid team said on Wednesday.

He said, "I wanted to underline FIFA's commitment to the principle of sports without politics", Putin said during a FIFA Congress in Moscow while standing next to the World Cup trophy.

Both the United States and Canada failed to qualify for this year's World Cup.

World Cup holders Germany, five-time winners Brazil, Euro 2016 winners Portugal, 2014 runners-up Argentina, Belgium, Poland and 1998 winners France are among the eight seeded teams.

Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes charged with fraud
But Balwani, the company's longtime COO and Holmes's ex-boyfriend, is a more shadowy figure, with virtually no online trace. The founder of a United States start-up that promised to revolutionise blood testing has been hit with criminal charges.

The United Bid, a three-country effort by the U.S., Mexico and Canada, emerged the overwhelming victor at the event which took place at the Moscow Expocentre.

A total of 80 games will be played with 60 planned in the United States and 10 each in Canada and Mexico with the final played at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, home to National Football League teams New York Giants and New York Jets.

"This announcement is huge for soccer in the USA and maybe even bigger for soccer in Nashville", Butch Spyridon, president and CEO of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp, said.

Saudi captain Osama Hawsawi said the warm-up defeats would simply not be relevant when the players took to the field to open "the most important sporting event".

Federation Internationale de Football Association is set to generate up to 6.1 billion from the 2018 World Cup kicking off in Russia, according to the world governing body's financial documents. "I believe in what I can do for FIFA and for football".

"When they help us fight against corruption, of course, we are pleased", Infantino said.

Not only did she remind delegates about Morocco's lack of infrastructure but highlighted the North American bid's ability to deliver double the revenue at $14 billion. Russian Federation gets to kick off the tournament against Saudi Arabia, who might be the weakest nation in the entire competition.
