Vancouver will not be part of the North American 2026 World Cup bid

Those six cities - and 17 more - are on a final list the bid committee representing the United States, Mexico and Canada will submit to Federation Internationale de Football Association on Friday, the deadline for completed proposals. Ottawa announced its official support for Canadian cities in the bid - promising up to $5 million in immediate help if the unified bid is selected.

Chicago won't take part in the effort to try to lure the World Cup soccer tournament to North America mainly because taxpayers would have been liable for unlimited cost overruns of hosting games, aides to Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Thursday. Baltimore, which would use M&T Bank Stadium for games, joins three cities in Mexico, three in Canada and Atlanta, Boston, Cincinnati, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, Tenn., New York/New Jersey, Orlando, Fla., Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington.

The United 2026 World Cup bid have unveiled their 23-city hosting list and while there are a few notable omissions - Vancouver, Chicago, Salt Lake and Minneapolis being the highest profile - it is still an impressive and broad-based power play in the bid battle.

The USA, Canada and Mexico are jointly bidding for the event.

"It's not unusual for an global event such as the World Cup or the Olympics to govern under Swiss law", Kristick said. Morocco did not reveal even the basics of its bid until earlier this year, and the very nature of the expanded 2026 event makes it a monumental challenge for a single country.

The 2026 World Cup is having trouble finding a home.

"CenturyLink Field is a world-class soccer venue designed specifically to host World Cup soccer".

But the North American bid has been cast in doubt in recent months, partly because of rising anti-American sentiment around the globe that could hurt the North American bid when voting occurs in June.

"Canada is a country that celebrates our diversity as a strength", Sohi said, adding the event is an opportunity to show off our Indiginous culture and multicultural history to the world.
