In case you were asleep and missed it, Canada will officially co-host 2026 FIFA World Cup matches.

The United Bid that Canada is a part of includes the US and Mexico. The three nations will be hosting 80 games, but only 16 cities out of 23 possible hosts will be chosen.

In Canada, Edmonton, Toronto, and Montreal are up to be part of the soccer action.

“We are thrilled that the FIFA World Cup is coming to North America in 2026,” said Steven Reed, President of Canada Soccer.

“Canada, Mexico, and the United States have been granted the honour of hosting the world’s most extraordinary sporting event for many reasons, but one of the biggest was because of the passion of our fans across our three countries.”

Toronto’s Mayor John Tory shared his excitement on Twitter on Wednesday, claiming “We won.”

According to Canada Soccer, today’s vote marks the first time three nations have been selected to co-host a FIFA World Cup and the first time the FIFA World Cup will be played in North America in 32 years.

FIFA will be making the final selection of host cities for the 2026 competition from the 23 candidates proposed in the United Bid.
