“I think, uh… this part of the world doesn’t understand what will happen here in 2026, I mean these three countries will be turned upside down and then turned upside down again. The world will invade Canada, Mexico and the United States, and they will be swept by a great wave of joy and happiness, because this is football.

The 1994 World Cup, the last time the United States hosted it, sparked a boom in football’s popularity, and two years later Major League Soccer began its first season.

At Thursday’s announcement party, New York City Mayor Eric Adams called his city’s host status a win after two years of lockdown and uncertainty.

“Today these young people and their enthusiasm, they took a question mark and turned it into an exclamation point, we are America, we are New York, we are New Jersey. You’re damn right, we’ll be fine – the World Cup will be here in New York and New Jersey.”

On Thursday, there was no indication yet where the opening game or the final would be played.

Sixteen cities were selected to participate in the championship, but 22 initial entries were submitted.

Among those not counted were Orlando, Cincinnati and the US Capitol – Washington, D.C. would have been hosted jointly with Baltimore.
