U.S.-led World Cup bid denies $10bn revenue projections optimistic - report

Martin Ainstein undergoes an unforgettable experience in Moscow as he visits the Russian Cosmonaut Training Center during his tour of World Cup host cities.

The North American bid for the 2026 World Cup is standing by its record-breaking profit projections among suggestions the figures do not stack up, sources close to the bid told Press Association, and believe its estimates are, if anything, on the conservative side.

Canada, Mexico and the United States have teamed up to form the front-running United 2026 bid and, while the contest has narrowed in recent weeks, it remains the marginal favourite over Morocco's bid for the 48-team tournament.

FIFA urged by Morocco World Cup committee to deny U.S. territories 2026 vote - sources

ICC organizer Charlie Stillitano suggests Morocco's late 2026 World Cup bid is no match for the North American joint bid.

Morocco has also asked FIFA to inform the four territories -- American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands -- that they cannot vote in Moscow on June 13, sources said.

FA to meet Moroccan and United bids as 2026 World Cup decision looms

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.

The two bids for the 2026 World Cup will try to win England's vote on May 31 when they both make presentations to the Football Association board at its next meeting.

The contest between Morocco and the United bid from Canada, Mexico and the United States is now too close to call, providing the North African country's bid passes the technical assessment and makes it onto the ballot for the vote in Moscow on June 13.

That decision is expected by the end of the month, and it is understood that Morocco...

U.S. Soccer chief: Trump's World Cup bid tweet not a threat to voters

U.S. Soccer president Carlos Cordeiro has said U.S. President Donald Trump was not threatening other counties while tweeting support of North America's joint 2026 World Cup bid.

In publicly backing the hosting bid for the first time last week, Trump also questioned why the U.S. should support other countries who might lobby against it.

But ahead of the hosting vote by FIFA's football associations on June 13, Cordeiro told Reuters that was merely Trump's usual rhetoric.

"I don't...

Trump asks African nations to support U.S.-led World Cup bid

Martin Ainstein's tour of the World Cup host cities arrives at the scene of the Battle of Stalingrad, the largest and bloodiest of World War II.

United States President Donald Trump has called for African countries to support the North American joint bid to host the 2026 World Cup.

Last week, Trump tweeted his support for the joint bid while also cautioning it would be a "shame" if U.S. allies lobbied against it. On Monday, he reaffirmed his stance while speaking at the White House alongside Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari.

"I hope all African countries and countries throughout the world that we also will be supporting you, and that they...
