INFANTINO IS OPEN TO MULTI-HOST WORLD CUP
FIFA President Gianni Infantino is open to a 40team World Cup in 2026, with several countries serving as cohosts. Infantino’s comments show that FIFA will consider cohosting by the United States, Canada and Mexico. They are expected bidders for 2026, with the CONCACAF region favoured to host for the first time since 1994, when 24 teams played in the US. Asked about a potential US-Canada-Mexico project for 2026, the former UEFA general secretary noted that his previous organisation chose to hold Euro 2020 in 13 different host nations. “So, there is, I would say, no limit to whatever is good for football,” he said.
