Just seen this bit in the FIFA voting rules.

To view the link you have to Register or Login

Quote:
The question to be put to the 68th FIFA Congress in connection with the vote shall be:
“Do you want to award the right to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup final competition to the bid submitted by the Moroccan Football Association, to the joint bid submitted by the CSA, FEMEXFUT and the USSF (“United Bid”), or to none of them (thus reopening the bidding process, excluding the four member associations having already submitted a bid)?”

If the third option (“None of the Bids – Reopen Bidding Process”) obtains a simple majority in the first ballot, both of the aforementioned bids are deemed to be rejected and the second phase of the Bidding Procedure shall be initiated (thus reopening the bidding process, excluding the four member associations that have already submitted a bid).
Is this the first time they've had a "None of the Above" option?

The current bids are terrible. A 'none of the above' option followed by England, France or Germany winning it would be the most sensible option.

Voting will be taking place shortly - the FIFA congress has been sitting through final presentations from both bids as I type, so could be a decision very soon...

Absolutely no way should three nations qualify, even if it is 48 teams by then.

USA only, Canada and Mexico should need to Qualify.

Why USA only? How about Mexico only as they are better?

US/Mexico/Canada joint bid would be good, but one of those countries isn't very safe.

Is this for real? 48 teams qualify? ******* hell what a bloody joke.

I suppose it does become interesting in what way Scotland manage to fail to qualify yet again.

Since 1966 Germany has hosted the tournament twice, and 2026 will be the second time since 66 that its been held in the US and the third in Mexico. All this against a backdrop of England having the football infrastructure necessary to hold the tournament tomorrow with stadia to spare and a significant proportion of those who would play in a world cup plying their trade in England. Add to this the success of both Euro 96 and London 2012.

I was 3 when the tournament was last held in England. I'll be 67 in 2030. I would like to see another world cup in England in my lifetime.

It probably won't be much different from now. Right now 3.5 teams get in from CONCACAF. In 2026, it will probably be 6 teams. (Although Canada hasn't qualified in a long time, so they will probably be taking somebody's spot)

Mexico gained the second one by taking over from Columbia who withdrew
after winning the bid.

The USA/Canada/Mexico bid said they'd make an $11bn profit for FIFA.

Morocco said they'd make $5bn, but also that weapons were banned there and they hadn't raised ticket prices to stretch their revenues.

MONEY WINS!
