The United States of America, Canada and Mexico have won the rights to joint host the 2026 World Cup after beating Morocco.

The three North American countries won the rights to host in a 68th FIFA Congress which was held in Russia today June 13, 2018.

The 'United 2026' bid was selected by Fifa member nations, winning 134 votes compared to 65 for Morocco.
