All the Good Sports: GOOOOOAALLLL!!!! The World Cup Returns to the U.S. in 2026
Start saving your pennies now, soccer’s World Cup is returning to U.S. soil.
It was announced early Wednesday that Canada, Mexico and the U.S. will welcome the best of the best in 2026.
North America beat out its only challenger, Morocco, for the privilege.
Gillette Stadium will likely be home to some of the action, and it's almost certain that Met Life Stadium in New Jersey will be the site of the 2026 World Cup Final.
It’s the first time that more than one country will share the hosting duties for the Cup.
Mexico always qualifies for the Cup. Canada has only been once and the U.S. failed to qualify for this year’s event. Soccer’s governing body, FIFA, has yet to decide if any or none of the countries will get an automatic bid in 2026 when the field will include 48 teams.
Thirty-two countries will compete for the 2018 title starting Thursday in Russia. Former U.S. head coach Bruce Arena will be a guest on “Cail and Company” on Tuesday.
