2026 World Cup Awarded To North America -- United, U.S.-Mex-Can

Did you have any doubt on the vote?

The U.S., Mexico and Canada as hosts automatically qualify for play in the 2026 World Cup.

With CONCACAF rising soccer nations and considering the U.S. not qualifying this year, its good to see the U.S. receiving an automatic spot, but it will seem a bit strange watching a two year cycle play out for qualifications and the U.S. (and Mexico and Canada) not having to compete.

I've been getting used to the agony watching team USA in its qualifiers over the years.
