Triple bid is favourite to land 2026 World Cup

The triple World Cup bid from Canada, Mexico and USA is rated as 2/1 favourites to host the World Cup in 2026 after they launched their bid for the first ever expanded tournament.

Fifa have already announced that the 2026 finals will feature 48 teams, up from the current 32.

The three nations are all part of the Concacaf – Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football – one of the associations allowed to bid.

European and Asian nations are excluded from bidding for the 2026 competition as they are already hosting in 2018 (Russia) and in 2022 (Qatar).

That means that the tournament will go to the Concacaf region, South America or Africa and now the first ever triple bid from USA, Canada and Mexico is the first to throw their hats in the ring.

The proposal would be for the USA to host 60 matches, with 10 games each in Canada and Mexico. USA have already staged the World Cup once before in 1994, whilst Mexico have held it twice in 1970 and 1986.

The decision is due to be made by Fifa in 2020.

888Sport are now offering 2/1 on them to be awarded the event.

They are also offering other bets around USA and Mexico, given president Donald Trump has stated a wlal would be build on the border between the two nations.

888 are offering 10/1 that the ‘wall’ will be completed by the time the World Cup stars or 20/1 if he confirms the ‘wall’ will not be built.

And if you think Trump will take a real interest in USA’s football team, he is 500/1 to be manager of the team at the finals in 2026.
