Mexico, USA, or Canada could be one of the hosts for the 2026 World Cup according to CONCACAF President, Jeffrey Webb.

In a press conference today where CONCACAF announced their partnership with Scotiabank, Webb stated the possibility of CONCACAF hosting the World Cup tournament in 2026; the last World Cup that CONCACAF hosted was in 1994 in the United States.

If they are the ones chosen, the United States would be hosting the tournament for the second time. Mexico has hosted two World Cups already, in 1970 and 1986, while Canada would be hosting it for the first time.

It is unknown at this time when the bidding process for the tournament will actually start, but Europe and Asia will be forbidden to bid this time around due to having hosted one of the two previous tournaments. This is a strong indicator that the World Cup might be coming to North America in 2026.
