After the USA men's national team missed out on qualifying for this summer's tournament, which kicks off at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on Thursday, the news of the successful bid was a boost to frustrated American soccer fans.
Labrecque pointed out that the Olympic Stadium has already played host to the women's World Cup and the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-20 World Cup.
Morocco lost again with its fifth bid campaign in the past 30 years, including to the USA for the 1994 World Cup. The U.S. proposed to host 60 out of the 80 matches, leaving Canada and Mexico with 10 fixtures each.
Canada staged the Women's World Cup in 2015.
As nice as it is to travel and experience new countries, having the tournament come to our own backyard is a chance that simply can not be missed, especially considering it will be held in three separate countries for the first time in the history of the World Cup.
"Hosting the 2026 FIFA World CupTM is a rare and important moment to demonstrate that we are all truly united through sport", said Carlos Cordeiro, President of U.S. Soccer and Co‐Chair of the United Bid.
"We are humbled by the trust our colleagues in the Fifa family have put in our bid, strengthened by the unity between our three countries and the Concacaf region and excited by the opportunity we have to put football on a new and sustainable path for generations to come". Both bids were of a very high quality and we welcome the fact that the bidding process was both open and transparent.
"Hosting a FIFA World CupTM is an extraordinary honor and privilege", said Steven Reed, President of Canada Soccer and Co‐Chair of the United Bid.
The US-led bid had been coasting to victory but the intervention of Donald Trump, who made veiled threats against countries who voted for Morocco, spiced up the contest.
Morocco was counting on the strong support of African countries but it seems the ten nations defied the continental solidarity and voted otherwise.
