The 2026 World Cup is coming to North America.
The FIFA congress met earlier today in Russia, and selected the United 2026 (a joint effort from Canada, Mexico and the USA) bid as the host for the world-wide event over Morocco.
Most of the games will be played in the United States, with only six venues located in Canada and Mexico.
Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, BMO Field in Toronto and Olympic Stadium in Montreal will play host to the games here in Canada.
The announcement means that all three countries will receive automatic entries in the tournament.
The only time Canada has been in the World Cup was in 1986, where the team failed to win a game or score a goal.
The last major FIFA event to take place in North America was the 2015 Womens World Cup. It took place in cities across Canada including Winnipeg, Ottawa and Vancouver.
