U.S. and Mexico considering joint bid to host 2026 World Cup

The host country for the 2026 tournament will be decided in May 2020.

The United States and Mexico are in talks about a possible joint bid to host the 2026 World Cup, and FIFA President Gianni Infantino has already voiced support for the idea.

“Mr. Infantino was very enthusiastic about my idea for a joint bid and wants me to pursue this further,” said Mexican Football Federation president Decio de Maria, ESPN FC reported on Friday.

John Motta, a board member of the United States Soccer Federation, said the group is “very open” to a joint bid after speaking with the Mexican federation about the possibility.

“It could be a positive move for the game in both countries, and it’s also a very exciting proposition for FIFA. We will now go away and formulate a timetable for further discussions,” Motta said, ESPN reported. “But whatever happens, we will bid for the 2026 World Cup—either jointly or we will go it alone.”

Japan and South Korea jointly hosted the 2002 World Cup, and FIFA has not considered joint bids since then, according to ESPN. The final decision about the host country for the 2026 tournament will be made in May 2020.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
