Canada has never hosted the World Cup but staged the Olympic Games in 1976, the U17 World Cup in 1987, the U20 World Cup in 2007 and the FIFA Women's World Cup in 2015.The 2022 FIFA World Cup finals will take place in Qatar.

Also, South American associations are likely to vote for the United Bid while those from UEFA are split, with France and Belgium likely to throw their support behind Morocco.

Although it will be the first tournament to be hosted by three nations, the vast majority of games will be held in the United States.

The vast majority of World Cup sponsors are from Europe, North America and Asia, and, while African companies agreed deals during the 2010 South African World Cup cycle, and South American companies did so around Brazil 2014, neither region agreed deals for Russian Federation 2018.

Of the 80 games, 10 will be held in Canada, 10 in Mexico and 60 in the U.S., with the final played at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, home to the NFL's New York Giants and New York Jets.

Speaking on Trump's possible visit for the World Cup, Peskov said "for this there is even no need for North America to win". All soccer venues are expected to be ready by the time the 2026 World Cup rolls around.

Morocco lost again with its fifth bid campaign in the past 30 years, including to the USA for the 1994 World Cup.

The matches of the 2018 World Cup will be held between June 14 and July 15 at 12 stadiums located in the 11 above-mentioned cities across Russian Federation.

Ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, FIFA and long-term partner Coca-Cola devised the longest-ever route across the host country in the project's history especially for Russia.
