Jacksonville could see 2026 impact from World Cup vote

Jacksonville could see 2026 impact from World Cup vote

"MetLife Stadium was included in the bid book as a recommended site for the final and we look forward to working with Federation Internationale de Football Association to finalize plans in the coming years", read the statement from the stadium.

"I would like to thank the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, His Majesty the King, His Royal Highness the Crown Prince, and my good friend His Excellency Turki Al-Sheikh for your tremendous support of the United bid", said Cordeiro.

The plan is that Canada and Mexico would each host 10 matches, while 60 matches would be played in the United States.

The 2026 World Cup will be the first expanded tournament featuring 48 teams, up from the current 32-team competition.

China urges 'full denuclearisation' as Kim-Trump meet
Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday to slam the media for its insistence that the U.S. gave up too much in its deal with Kim. Provocative nuclear and missile tests by North Korea previous year initially gave Moon little diplomatic room to maneuver.


In a vote of more than 200 member nations of soccer's governing body in Moscow, the so-called United Bid beat out Morocco, 134-65.

Canada, Mexico and the United States each have a proven track record of staging successful FIFA football tournaments, with Mexico hosting the World Cup in 1970 and 1986 and the United States hosting the 1994 finals. Two American teenagers will be in the UEFA Champions League next year and youth national teams have been posting significantly improved results the past three years.

"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", Infantino said.

"What can really be the legacy, whether we host matches or are just involved with this in some other grand scheme, that can make sure that Baltimore and the state of Maryland have maximized the potential of being a part of the World Cup?". We congratulate all of those who worked tirelessly to bring the World Cup back to North America and thank the countries that voted for the United Bid, and for their belief in our vision for the future of the sport in our region. Even if Trump wins re-election, his presidency would end before the 2026 World Cup. And given the artificial turf the women were forced to play on and the threats made against those who protested, I believe Canadian, U.S., and Mexico soccer officials still owe female players an apology.

North Korea sanctions to 'remain in effect’
I still kept going back, I showed my loyalty to this country, and I said to everybody the door will open. Rodman said he received a call from the White House saying that " Donald Trump is so proud of you".


"There's a tremendous amount of ancillary events that go on around the World Cup", said Rick Catlett, president and chief executive officer of Gator Bowl Sports.

To do so would have invited ridicule when it needed to build or renovate the 14 stadiums it wants to use - a task FIFA's technical report said "cannot be overstated".

"Not to comment really on the USA side, but maybe they felt that they wished to go further in some additional letters which they had received from their president", he added. The 2026 tournament will be the first hosted by multiple countries since the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea.

Canada will host a fraction of the 80 men's World Cup matches in 2026, so costs will proportionally reflect that.

Kim asks Trump to visit Pyongyang in July
In October, Trump praised the USA relationship with Singapore and called Loong a "wonderful and loyal partner". The leaders are spending the night at hotels about a half-mile apart in the upscale shopping area in Tanglin.


"It's great for the country and great for soccer in America", he said.
