The 2026 World Cup will be held in the United States, Canada and Mexico after their joint bid beat Morocco's proposal to host it.

The 'United 2026' bid was selected by Fifa member nations, winning 134 votes compared to 65 for Morocco.

This is awesome news in general and, in addition, while nothing has been confirmed, it's almost guaranteed that Dallas will absolutely host one of these games.

So happy the joint big won out over Morocco. I was very scared we'd get "Qatar'ed" all over again.

I believe Dallas was also in play for several of the ancillary hosting jobs as well (media center, etc), so that's great news overall.

Plus, guaranteed participation by the US Men's National Team!
