Make sure to select the "Fubo Premier" bundle that includes all four of the World Cup soccer TV channels in most markets.

Delegates from around the world voted 134-65 in favour of the North American bid over Morocco at FIFA's 68th Congress in Moscow on Wednesday.

Ahead of tomorrow's World Cup in Russia, FIFA has announced that the U.S., Mexico, and Canada have won a joint bid to host the 2026 World Cup, reports NBC. Canada and Mexico would then host ten games each.

The 2026 FIFA World Cup is coming to North America.

The country's hopes of becoming the second African country to host the cup after South Africa in 2010 hit a bump last week when a Federation Internationale de Football Association task force scored the bid 2.7 out of 5 following an inspection.

This week 32 teams will meet in Russian Federation to compete for the 2018 World Cup. American soccer officials downplayed the influence of politics on the bid.

Iggy Pop, Queens Of The Stone Age and Questlove were among the names to pay tribute to Bourdain after news broke of his death. The topic has returned to the spotlight after celebrities Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain took their lives last week.

Venues for the 2026 World Cup, which is slated to be the first WC to feature 48 teams, will be chosen from 23 stadiums that now exist or are already under construction.

"There's no bigger sporting event than the World Cup, and Nashville will be ready to host the best soccer players and fans on the planet eight years from now", Mayor David Briley said. Another three are cities that will have expansion teams coming into MLS.

Wembley will host seven games during Euro 2020, including the semi-finals and final, while in August, the FA announced its bid to host the 2021 European Women's Championship.

Federation Internationale de Football Association will have to decide how the games are divided up and which cities will be selected.

But his adopted city, Vancouver, will not be hosting a World Cup game in 2026 because the province pulled out of the bid in March, saying it would not shoulder "potentially huge and unpredictable costs".

Dallas's AT&T Stadium and Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium were floated as possible semi-final venues.
