The 2026 World Cup will be held in the United States, Mexico and Canada after FIFA's Congress voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to back the tri-nation joint bid to host the tournament, with Morocco missing out for the fifth time.One Congress member voted for "neither bid".The North Americans pledged their tournament would generate an $11 billion profit while Morocco, which has now failed in five bids to host the World Cup, said theirs would make 5 billion.The U.S previously hosted the World Cup in 1994 while Mexico staged it in 1970 and 1986 .A U.S. bid lost out in the vote eight years ago for the 2022 World Cup, which was handed to Qatar, and U.S Football Federation president Carlos Cordiero said it had been a long road to get the tournament back to the country.
