Britain bars 1,300 ‘hooligans’ from travelling to World Cup

A FA spokesperson said: "We congratulate the USA, Canada and Mexico on winning the bid to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup".

"Here on this site hosting the Federation Internationale de Football Association men's World Cup in the past, hosting two Federation Internationale de Football Association women's World Cups on this site and numerous other soccer tournaments, and of course, the New England Revolution on a weekly basis". North America will host the six-team playoff tournament in November 2025 to decide the last two places in the 48-team lineup.

They warned "the amount of new infrastructure required for the Morocco 2026 bid to become reality can not be overstated".

Of the 80 games, 60 will be played in the United States with 10 each in Canada and Mexico. Germany will be 90 minutes away from their second straight World Cup, while France will be 90 minutes away from getting redemption from the 2016 Euros final loss.

Trump had earlier warned that any countries voting against the North American bid would suffer consequences in trade deals.

"We've been in Houston with them explaining the bid".

"We felt our message was very strong", said Montopoli.

In addition, the North American countries have 150 world-class training centers for participants and enough hotel rooms for the influx of sports enthusiasts from different parts of the world. "We've had no backlash".

Football's showpiece event will return to the North American continent for the first time since 1994 when the United States hosted the tournament. I had watched Maradona play in 1986, when they had won the World Cup, and since then, I've been a huge fan of the team.

FIFA's hosting selection process was revamped in the wake of recent scandals enveloping the world governing body of soccer.

Will the three co-hosts stage a Confederations Cup in advance of the World Cup?

But the north Africans are still considered to be in with a genuine chance.

After the US men's national team missed out on qualifying for this summer's tournament, which kicks off at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on Thursday, the news of the successful bid was a boost to frustrated American soccer fans.

"Why should we be supporting these countries when they don't support us (including at the United Nations)?" he tweeted.
