BOGOTA – members of The wereldvoetbalbond FIFA decisions on June 13, during the congress in Moscow, where the world cup of 2026 will be held.
They have the choice of Morocco and a joint ‘bid’ from Canada, the United States and Mexico. ,,There are no other candidates to come,” said FIFA president Gianni Infantino after a meeting in Colombia. “We are going to these countries to visit and see if they meet the requirements. At the congress prior to the world cup in Russia, we take a decision.”
If the two candidates do not meet the requirements, may also countries from Europe and Asia to sign. These continents are currently excluded because they are the next two world cup’s house.
For the first time allowed the 211 countries that FIFA are connected to determine where the global finals will be held. Previously did a select group of board members during a secret ballot. The FIFA wants, with the major changes in the formula to prevent the allocation of the world CHAMPIONSHIPS, again surrounded by the smell of bribery and corruption, such as in 2010 when the world cup of 2018 and 2022 in a shadowy mood were awarded respectively to Russia and Qatar. This is partly why the former FIFA top, with Sepp Blatter as the big boss, now vanished.
The vote is now public, which means that the FIFA the choices of all countries reveals. In the world cup of 2026 may preferably 48 countries that participate, sixteen more than now. There has been a global football tournament spread over three countries. Morocco hopes after South Africa (2010) as the second African country to the world cup to organise.
