USA, Mexico, Canada World Cup bid is “positive message” – Infantino

FIFA President, Gianni Infantino says the joint bid by Canada, Mexico and the United States for the twenty-twenty-six World Cup sends a “positive message”.

Speaking at a sports business conference in Dubai, Infantino also admitted that the decision to award two World Cups simultaneously, Russia in twenty-eighteen and Qatar twenty-twenty-two was a mistake.

He said FIFA want the best World Cup ever in twenty-eighteen and twenty-twenty-two, but for twenty-twenty-six, we have to organise as well the best bidding process.

The Canada, Mexico and the United States joint-bid for twenty-twenty-six faces competition only from Morocco.

Meanwhile, It will be the first tournament to feature forty-eight teams compared to twenty-eighteen and twenty-twenty-two which will welcome thirty-two countries each.
