    Good Luck for those wanting to pay a visit in N-America in 2026...Get ready to waste 90% of your budget on Plane tickets (btw Canada-USA-MX)... and 90% in the Air...



    Find the green bean...

    that'll be a shit world cup. huge distances between matches, lack of public interest and Europe and Asia will be asleep when most matches are played.

    Well... That's what you get when you have US slaves as voters... Many don't know it... but Trump said "Vote for Us or you will regret it..."

    Trump Tweet: “The US has put together a STRONG bid w/ Canada & Mexico for the 2026 World Cup. It would be a shame if countries that we always support were to lobby against the US bid. Why should we be supporting these countries when they don’t support us (including at the United Nations)?”

    So if the Saudis and America's two puppet states (Afghanistan and Liberia) had voted for Morocco there would have been a draw. So much for Arab unity lol!

    A lot of bribery goes on during the bidding process.

    I wouldnt be surprised if Trump starts a vendetta against those countries who voted against the US. Some of his European allies "backstabbed" him again (in his twisted world view).

    Well... those who voted against "Trump" do not care that much about the US support... or at least can manage his anger if "Trump" choose to make a move...

    The only vote that I can understand is those from the American Continent, it's understandable.
    That Trio-Bid is a nightmare for those outside of the American continent... It's not like everyone will stay till 4-5am to watch a match or pay Thousands of $ of plane tickets to go from one point to another... (minimum travel time btw 2 stadium is like 4-6 hours on plane...)

    Most of South America will land in Mexico..;since the US is a no no...
    EU & Asian & ME countries will mostly be Canada
    In the End, the USa will not get the big pie... out of it...
    (If nothing change in the US ofc... by having other Trump like president in the coming 8 years...)

    A lot of south American countries voted for USA because they share timezones and perhaps it is cheaper for them to go to USA than Morocco. I would have loved to see it in Morocco but anyways... I will attend it in USA as well especially if this half-evolved chimpanzee is not around.

    Morocco was robbed in 2006 the cup was awarded to Germany by rigging and now again after many years robbed again as cup given to USA again

    It was proven that back channel bribes were involved to get 2006 world cup moved to Germany

    Morocco is a quite prominent African soccer playing nation one of first nations to represent Africa on big stage

    Morocco , never hosted Cup while playing in Cup and qualifying well before 1974
    and while also having best weather for Competetion

    USA -> Hosted Once
    Mexico -> Hosted 2 Times
    Canada -> Hosted Junior World Cup
