Vancouver not among Canadian cities in line to host 2026 World Cup


"Due to unforeseen logistical circumstances, the Saudi flag bearers' delegation will unfortunately no longer be able to attend the opening of the 2018 FIFA World Cup", Coca-Cola said in a statement to Reuters.

While Canada has never hosted-or even qualified for-the men's World Cup, it can count on its more experienced co-hosts and current NAFTA partners.

After considering separate bids for the 2026 World Cup, the federations that govern soccer in Mexico, Canada and the United States chose to launch a cooperative effort to host the tournament in April 2017.

Canada, United States and Mexico have been awarded the 2026 FIFA World Cup after the United bid defeated Morocco by 134 votes to 65 today.

"But that aside, I think yesterday's decision by Fifa and the member associations and the process more importantly that has been followed will give the FA great comfort that making a bid for the 2030 World Cup is something that's definitely on the radar". Canada and Mexico would each host 10 games apiece. Brazil looks to justify their position as +400 tournament chalk as they take on No. 6 Switzerland as -245 betting favourites, while Germany sits as a +475 bet to repeat as World Cup champions as they open their group stage schedule against Mexico as a -205 wager.

The U.S. will host 60 matches, including all games from the quarter-finals through to the final.

Bid officials have given bullish financial projections, forecasting a record-breaking multi-billion-dollar profit for the expanded tournament. "We have thousands of people who have asked for that - thousands and thousands of people", Trump said. "Football for all", said Cordeiro. The US, however, hosted the World Cup on its own merit in 1994, while Mexico have twice before organised the tournament, in 1970 and in 1986.

Meanwhile, it should be noted that Saudi Arabia have fired two coaches since qualifying for the FIFA World Cup 2018.
