The North American joint bid was awarded the 2026 World Cup. I wonder if I'll be able to get any tickets. Expected average price of $421USD, though? I may just watch on telly.
Shocked that Vancouver got left off the list in favour of Edmonton. Final of the Women's World Cup that was in Canada was played in Vancouver and soccer is huge out there. Weird.
Both Chicago and Vancouver refused to agree to terms that FIFA laid out for host cities, so they both are out of the running. Lot of time left before then, so it wouldn't surprise me if this changed over the years.
