All games from the quarterfinal stage on - eight in all, if the third-place game is maintained - will be played in the USA.

"We have very specifically addressed this with the president", U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati said regarding Trump's opinion on teaming up with Mexico.

"This is a milestone day for U.S. Soccer and for CONCACAF", U.S. Soccer Federation president Sunil Gulati said.

Gulati claims, however, that Trump is "fully supportive" of the bid and had "encouraged" it. "We have a strong encouragement from President Trump". Brazil spent more than $11 billion to host the event in 2014, and Russian Federation is on pace to spend about $20 billion for 2018. Canada is the only one of the three that has never hosted a World Cup.

Canada's largest arena is Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, Alberta, which opened in 1978 and was renovated ahead of the 2015 Women's World Cup. It will, however, be the Fifa Council that decides match sites and scheduling.

"Infrastructure that's already in place is a far better solution than spending hundreds of millions, if not billions, of dollars on stadiums that don't have use beyond the tournament", Gulati said. When will we know if the CONCACAF region will get the World Cup? At least two venues each in Canada and Mexico will likely be used.

In addition to that, two more Concacaf nations would enter the new six-team playoff series if a Concacaf nation or nations hosted the World Cup.

That event was hampered by several logistical problems that will likely cause many in Federation Internationale de Football Association to question the wisdom of a three-country bid. CONCACAF will argue its time has come.

Canadian Soccer Association President Victor Montagliani added that the expectation is for all three potential host nations to automatically qualify for the tournament.

The USA held the 1994 World Cup which had the highest average attendance in the tournament's history.

No plans were announced for when the North American bidders want to play their games. "No, they don't but it does make for a unique opportunity for North America to host the tournament".

The biggest games would all belong to the United States. So much so that the U.S. Justice Department launched an investigation that helped bring down the most powerful people in soccer's governing body, including its longtime president Sepp Blatter.

All three countries involved can all deliver several stadiums capable of hosting matches immediately, with the Americans featuring a slew of National Football League stadiums, Mexico highlighting the most famous soccer stadium on the continent in Estadio Azteca, and Canada having Rogers Centre in Toronto to go along with BC Place in Vancouver, which was the 2010 Olympic stadium and site of the 2015 Women's World Cup final. "[The 2026] World Cup is ten years away and a lot of things can change, including presidents".
