#N12BK: FIFA World Cup

Posted: Updated:

The United States, Mexico and Canada will host the FIFA World Cup in 2026, the international sports association announced Wednesday.

The World Cup kicks off tomorrow in Russia, but many in North America are looking forward to 2026.

The tournament will take place in all three countries.

North America's bid beat out Morocco by a 134-65 vote.

The last time the United States hosted a FIFA World Cup game was in 1994.

Mexico also hosted the games in 1986.

Canada has never hosted the games before.

Team USA, Italy and Netherlands failed to qualify to the competition this year.
