Where to watch the World Cup in Los Angeles

Although the competition only happens every few years, host-countries are informed ahead of time to prepare for the hefty price tag. Victor Montagliani, the Canadian who leads CONCACAF, wants them to take three of the seven guaranteed qualification slots reserved for the region as host.

Argentina legend Diego Maradona says he does not like the decision to have Mexico, Canada and the United States host the 2026 World Cup, decrying the countries' lack of success and passion for the sport.

Mexico will host only 10 matches of the 80 to be played in the expanded tournament with matches played at the historic Estadio Azteca in Mexico City and handsome, modern facilities in Monterrey's Estadio BBVA Bancomer and Chivas de Guadalajara's Estadio Akron.

Not only did she remind delegates about Morocco's lack of infrastructure but highlighted the North American bid's ability to deliver double the revenue at $14 billion.

"If this can be successful, this can be repeated", he said, "in all parts of the world".

Morocco will bid to host the 2030 World Cup, a government spokesperson said on Thursday, a day after the kingdom missed out on the 2026 tournament to a joint North American bid.

However, the man who represents the United Kingdom's four nations on the ruling FIFA Council, said he personally would relish the idea of his homeland hosting the World Cup.
