The United States, Canada and Mexico will host the 2026 World Cup. A list of 23 potential North American sites for World Cup matches includes Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium.

The FIFA Congress voted today in Moscow, choosing the joint North American bid over a rival bid from Morocco.

The 2026 tournament will be the first ever to feature 48 teams, after FIFA okayed an expansion from 32 teams.
