The Unites States Canada and Mexico will host the 2026 World Cup


FIFA President Gianni Infantino calls it "a nice message" that the United States, Canada and Mexico will work together to host the 2026 World Cup.

Infantino says after the member federations voted 134-65 in favor of the joint North American bid over Morocco, "it is something we have to be happy for."

Wednesday's vote in Moscow follows U.S. President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sparring after a G7 summit in Canada.

Trump has had troubled relations with Mexico since launching his presidential candidacy in 2015.

Infantino says: "To have a message coming from football that says actually Mexico, Canada and the United States together can organize the biggest sporting and social event together, it is a nice message."
