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.

    If football and the worldcup in particular was only about the few rich countries to organize..then yes by all means only countries with no real football/soccer traditions would host this event.

    No football is first about passion, every country should be able to organize this event. Like many things in the world, its’ the marketing and lobbying shemes which destroys this joyous event.
