The US, Mexico and Canada have jointly won their bid to host the 2026 World Cup, beating Morocco.

FIFA held a congress on the eve of the Russian World Cup in Moscow, where members voted on who will host the competition in 2026.

The tri-nation bid won 134 of the votes, with Morocco getting 65.

The 2026 tournament will be the first expanded tournament featuring 48 teams, up from the current 32-team tournament, which begins in Russia on Thursday.
