The North American bid collected 134 votes to the 65 for Morocco.

In March, B.C. Premier John Horgan said he was not willing to write a "blank cheque" to have Vancouver host soccer matches for the FIFA World Cup in 2026.

Banned former Federation Internationale de Football Association president Sepp Blatter has received an open invitation from President Vladimir Putin to attend the World Cup in Russia and intends to take it up, Blatter's spokesman Thomas Renggli said on Tuesday.

The 2026 World Cup will look a whole lot different that previous iterations of the tournament, thanks to the fact that it will be hosted by three countries - the United States, Mexico and Canada - and expanded to 48 teams for the first time.

The current blueprint calls for Canada and Mexico to stage 10 games each with the USA hosting 60.

The 1994 World Cup, staged by the United States, had the highest average attendance in the tournament's history, while Mexico was the first nation to host the event twice. "Canada, Mexico, and the United States are ready to welcome the world to North America and serve as stewards of the largest FIFA World Cup™ in history".

The only team to have won the finals before are four-time champions Italy, who failed to qualify from UEFA's play-offs after finishing behind Spain in their group.

There were some concerns ahead of Wednesday's vote that anti-U.S. sentiment around the world, fuelled by President Donald Trump, would hurt the "United Bid". North America had to fend off a competing bid from Morocco, and fight through some rough seas. And the United committee's bid packet is expecting the 2026 event to be even more lucrative, projecting a record $14 billion in revenue and $11 billion in profits.

In qualification for the 2018 World Cup, the U.S. surprisingly finished fifth in a group of six countries in the fifth round of qualification, only ahead of Trinidad & Tobago. The country hosted in 1970, but it also hosted in 1986 after it was originally awarded to Colombia, who couldn't host for economic reasons. "I've done a lot in my career, and opening the FIFA World Cup to 80,000 football fans in the stadium and many millions all over the world is a boyhood dream".

Football's showpiece event will return to the North American continent for the first time since 1994 when the United States hosted the tournament.

The evaluation report also offers a "technical scoring" of the two bids, with Morocco getting 274.9 out of 500, compared to the United bid's 402.8 total.
