WORLD CUP EX­PAN­SION

Soccer 360 - - Major League Soccer -

The 2026 FIFA World Cup in North Amer­ica will be an his­toric event as it will be hosted by three na­tions and will fea­ture an ex­panded 48 teams. Concacaf pres­i­dent Vic­tor Mon­tagliani sees the tour­na­ment as an op­por­tu­nity for the fed­er­a­tion to leave a mark on the world stage. With the tour­na­ment still many years away, the qual­i­fy­ing process has yet to be de­ter­mined, in­clud­ing whether or not the host na­tions get an au­to­matic spot as well as how many spots are al­lo­cated to each fed­er­a­tion. There is the po­ten­tial for Concacaf to have eight na­tions in the 2026 edi­tion, which would dou­ble the re­gion’s cur­rent record of four.
