Trump said to back US-led bid for World Cup 2026
After the United States, Mexico and Canada announced their plan to bid together to host the 2026 World Cup on Monday, there came a frequent question.
As a consolation, Mexico wants the opener at its 87,000-capacity Azteca Stadium if it becomes the first three-time World Cup host.
The rough plan calls for approximately 60 of the matches to take place in the United States and 10 each in Mexico and Canada according to Gulati.
The bid provides a stark contrast to President Donald Trump's promise to build a border wall between the United States of America and Mexico.
"We look forward to continuing our successful collaboration with fellow CONCACAF member associations under the Fifa Council principles for joint bids and to continue our tradition of hosting record-breaking global events".
We think it's a jolly grand idea, especially given the rising economic costs major sports events have left on local economies (exhibit Brazil) in addition to the fact that I'd be damn cool to catch a game in Mexico City in the morning and another in LA later that day. When will we know if the CONCACAF region will get the World Cup? "We are not at all concerned at some of the concerns that some people may raise", Gulati said.
The lone World Cup played in the US was wildly successful - a 24-team event, registering, by far, the largest average attendance in tournament history (68,991), and helping create Major League Soccer - while Mexico has hosted the tournament on two occasions (1970, 1986), and Canada held the most recent Women's World Cup (2015).
Leaders from Mexico, Canada and the USA said their bid would also differ from the tournament's most recent and upcoming hosts, who spent billions to create stadiums and tourism infrastructure.

Representatives from the United States Soccer Federation, the Canadian Soccer Association and the Mexican Football Federation announced that the 2026 competition, which will feature 48 nations for the first time, will also see the tournament potentially hosted in three different countries for the first time. All matches from the quarterfinals onwards would be in the United States.
The officials said the three-country bid would save money and help each country promote football at home.
As the 2018 and 2022 World Cup were allotted to Russian Federation and Qatar, no Asian and European countries were allowed to bid. Canada put on a women's World Cup.
Their proposal assumes that there will be 80 games played in the 2026 World Cup.
"We're in favour of more venues than less", Gulati added - a signal matches in Canada could be spread across stadiums beyond those located in Toronto and Vancouver.
Federation Internationale de Football Association members will also be asked to consider the "election or dismissal" leaders of its judicial bodies, including the ethics committee.
In addition to a larger field, the 2026 World Cup will be awarded using a different voting process.
