Satellite images reveal what Russia's World Cup stadiums look like from space

The city has a chance to host warm-up friendly matches and perhaps other events ahead of the global soccer competition, which returns to the United States for the first time since 1994. "Thank you for entrusting us with this privilege, the privilege of hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2026", an emotional US Soccer president Carlos Cordeiro said on stage after the vote.

"They have at their disposal not only the financial resources but, more importantly, the policing and security resources to make sure we do that well", he said.

That's just one of 12 stadiums that teams from 32 countries will be playing at during the World Cup.

Because it is co-hosting with two other countries, it is not yet clear if Canada will get the traditional automatic host-country qualification for the 2026 tournament.

Potential host cities include New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Mexico City, and Montreal; but not Chicago, after the Windy City pulled out of the North American bid.

The city is working with the Edmonton Eskimos and other community groups on a master plan to upgrade Commonwealth Stadium. Football is known as soccer in the United States.

That, along with the promise of major revenues from North American sponsors and television networks, was appealing to Federation Internationale de Football Association, an organization that has been beset by global corruption scandals, concerns over exorbitant costs related to previous tournaments, and allegations of widespread labor and human rights abuses around the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. In not many people's lifetime did they ever experience a home World Cup and Canadians are going to get it. "MLS is growing a lot, so to have worldwide teams coming to the U.S.to see how we've grown as a country", USA midfielder Kellyn Acosta, 22, said in video from FC Dallas. But FIFA President Gianni Infantino suggested the split of games could change.

"There's no bigger sporting event than the World Cup, and Nashville will be ready to host the best soccer players and fans on the planet eight years from now", Mayor David Briley said.

Morocco has largely avoided competing with the North Americans in a dash for cash.

According to U.S. Soccer, Canada and Mexico are each slated to host 10 matches, while the United States will host 60.

British Columbia's government is standing by a decision that will leave the province on the sidelines when the World Cup comes to Canada in 2026.

Just to add to the complexity, there was a third option for all voters: neither Morocco or United and we would have had to start a new bidding process. "They don't. We have to make them think about Toronto".
