2026 FIFA World Cup evaluation report published
FIFA have published the 2026 World Cup evaluation report for the bidding process to host the competition, which has been largely contested between Morocco and a join bid between USA, Canada and Mexico.
With the bidding infamously being won by Qatar for the 2022 World Cup, there has been a lot of focus on the potential hosts of the following tournament in 2026.
In recent weeks, there have been mixed reports as to whether the ‘United’ bid or Morocco’s bid is the frontrunner with some other countries rumoured to be submitting their own, and in the latest development FIFA have published an evaluation report on their website. The report goes as follows:
After a thorough assessment of the respective bid books and visits to the relevant member associations, the 2026 Bid Evaluation Task Force has today confirmed that, in line with the Bidding Regulations, the following bids have achieved the required score and will be submitted to the FIFA Council:
- Bid jointly submitted by the Canadian Soccer Association, the Mexican Football Association and the United States Soccer Federation
- Bid submitted by the Moroccan Football Association
Following the assessment by the 2026 Bid Evaluation Task Force – and provided the FIFA Council submits a designation – the decision on whether to select one of the above bidders to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup will be taken by the 68th FIFA Congress, which will convene in Moscow on 13 June.
The winner of the bidding is expected to be announced later this month.
