The United States, Mexico, and Canada are making a joint bid to host the 2026 World Cup. The only other time multiple nations have hosted the World Cup was in 2002, when it was held in South Korea and Japan.
Let’s see what Twitter thinks about this.
The U.S., Mexico & Canada will announce a “historic” three-nation bid to co-host the 2026 World Cup on Monday. https://t.co/Et8196nl1o

I love the US, Mexico, Canada joint bid for the 2026 World Cup. It sets an example of how this sport transcends borders.

That awkward moment during the 2026 World Cup when Mexico gets a free kick and the United States builds a wall.

And our 4th question of the night (it’s Passover somewhere).
Do you want Mexico to pull out of the CONCACAF 2026 World Cup bid?

Love the fact that Canada, Mexico and USA all bid for the 2026 World Cup, but the final should be held in Mexico City at Estadio Azteca.

So there you have it. Some people are for it. While others are against it. Should be interesting to see how this whole thing plays out. But for now we are just going to have to wait and see since it is still about 9 years away.
