Vancouver dropped as candidate to host 2026 World Cup matches

With 100 days to go until the FIFA World Cup, Ian Darke joins a group of ESPN writers and experts for a roundtable discussion about what to expect in Russia this summer.
FIFA president Gianni Infantino tells Gab Marcotti about his hopes that the 2018 and 2022 World Cups change negative perceptions of Russia and Qatar.
ICC organizer Charlie Stillitano suggests Morocco's late 2026 World Cup bid is no match for the North American joint bid.
U.S. soccer president Sunil Gulati is confident that North America's infrastructure will support its World Cup joint bid.

Vancouver has been dropped from the North American bid to host the 2026 World Cup, the provincial government confirmed on Wednesday.

United 2026 -- the committee which represents the United States, Canada and Mexico's interest in hosting football's biggest event -- has informed the city it has been dropped from the list of candidates being considered to stage matches should North America win the right to put on the tournament.

"We submitted our second bid last night and this morning we received notification that [United 2026] have not accepted the bid," Tourism Minister Lisa Beare told reporters at the British Columbia Legislature on Wednesday.

According to Beare, the province, in which Vancouver is located, "couldn't agree to terms that would put British Columbians at risk of shouldering potentially huge and unpredictable costs."

She added in a statement: "So far, the bid committee has rejected our requests to clarify how much British Columbians could be expected to contribute. And they have declined to negotiate with the province regarding the concerns we raised."
