United States, Mexico and Canada thwarted Morocco's World Cup 2026 hosting bid to emerge as the next hosts of the World Cup in 2026 on Wednesday, June 13.

The North American bid received 134 votes, Morocco received 65 votes while one country voted for neither.

A total of 210 members present were eligible to vote , however, of the 210 seven abstained from voting.

The electronic vote saw Morocco's dreams of hosting the 23rd edition of the quadrennial mundial fade away with some African states opting to vote for the united bid.

It is understood that Spain did not vote following the development of the sacking of Spain national coach Lopetegui that witnessed the absence of the head of the federation.

In most instances the host country automatically qualifies for the World Cup finals as per tradition, however in the event of multiple host nations, such cannot be the case.

The Fifa council will be charged with making the final decision on the number of countries that receive automatic bids.

The World Cup has only bin co-hosted once before in history and that was when both South Korea and Japan earned automatic qualification.

As TUKO.co.ke had formerly reported President to back the United States, Canada and Mexico in their joint bid for the 2026 Fifa World Cup.

Trump made his call for support earlier in the week when he hosted Nigeria president Muhammadu Buhari at the White House on Monday, May 1.
