FIFA to choose between Africa or North America for 2026 World Cup host

FIFA members will decide whether the 2026 World Cup should be played in North America or return to Africa for just the second time, in Morocco.

The choice is clear – between a slick bid based on gleaming stadiums in the United States, Mexico and Canada or an ambitious attempt from Morocco based on as-yet largely unbuilt facilities.

On the eve of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, 207 FIFA member nations will cast their vote in a congress of world football’s governing body.

Morocco’s bid for 2026 was only cleared to advance to the run-off vote earlier this month, despite a FIFA evaluation report which classified the North African nation’s stadiums, accommodation and transport as “high risk.”
