The United States, Mexico and Canada have won their bid to welcome the globe for the FIFA World Cup in 2026, the first World Cup to expand to 48 teams from 32.

The FIFA World Cup in 2026 will also feature a new format of 16 three-team groups with the top two advancing to a round of 32.

“United 2026”, which beat Morocco, had promised to bring the world’s game to 16 cities in North America.

The U.S. has proposed hosting 60 of the 80 games, with 10 games each for Mexico and Canada.

According to New York Daily News, New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium is one of the host candidates and could possibly hold either the tournament’s opening fixture or the final.

“American, Canadian and Mexican officials tried to entice FIFA with a suspected profit of $11 billion from the tournament and the fact that its stadiums are built, rather than the massive infrastructure project needed by Morocco,” NYDaily News said.

At the vote Wednesday in Moscow the United vote received 134 votes compared to Morocco’s 65.
