Trump says he 'worked hard' on World Cup bid, thanks Kraft

Fans arrive prior to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Group F match between Nigeria and Argentina at Beira Rio Stadium World Cup 2026: U.S.-Mexico-Canada bid chosen as host
Guillermo Lane | 17 June, 2018, 05:01

The World Cup at Brazil saw a lot of larger-than-life carnivals take place in the month-long tournament.

The chance to co-host the 2026 World Cup is an opportunity to put Canada on the world stage, politicians said Wednesday after soccer's global governing body voted in favour of a joint North American bid for the event. The U.S. hosted in 1994.

The report left the US-Canada-Mexico bid as the clear front-runner after giving it a rating of four out of five.

In a previous Reporter story, Eastside FC, director of operations Chance Fry - also a former pro player and Sammamish High grad - said Seattle is ready to get in the World Cup game.

Infantino's announcement was widely expected. But all signs point to yes, especially with the field expanded to 48 teams from 32.

The regional bid proved more appealing this time and the North Americans even collected 11 votes from Africa. The U.S., Mexico and Canada won 134-65 to co-host the tournament in voting by Federation Internationale de Football Association members on Wednesday. But that is not carved in stone.

Only the compromise measure offers a chance at citizenship for young immigrants who arrived in the USA illegally as children. Hundreds of thousands of them have been protected by the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.


By contrast, Morocco appeared too hazardous as a potential host when all 14 venues had to be built or renovated as part of a $16 billion investment in new infrastructure. He noted more has to happen before the Alberta capital makes the cut of host cities by 2020.

"And in that spirit we wish all Russian hosts and all the teams competing here the very best of luck".

"I don't think there is any doubt that the American public is far more soccer literate whether that is because of the World Cup (in 1994) or the presence of MLS or the presence of global soccer on television and the changes in technology and social media that facilitate all of that", he told Reuters.

Anyone who's watched the World Cup in the past though knows that anything can happen and no team is safe.

Pitana refereed four games at the 2014 World Cup, and Irrati is from Collina's native Italy which also used video review in Serie A. Of the 211 Fifa member nations, 200 cast a vote at the 68th Fifa Congress in Moscow on Wednesday, with the winning bid needing a majority of 104.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino is believed to strongly support the North American bid because the three countries involved backed him for the presidency in 2016 when he took over after the reign of Blatter, who is being investigated in Switzerland for alleged corruption.
