After having solidified his position in the inner circle of world soccer, Victor Montagliani – the FIFA vice-president and CONCACAF president – is now looking to help bring the biggest prize in Soccer to his home country Canada, the United States and Mexico according to reports.

A source reveals that during their press conference scheduled for Monday in New York, soccer officials from the three countries might announce a joint bid for the 2026 World Cup. This rumour is supported by press releases from CONCACAF and the soccer governing bodies promising a “historic announcement”.


There has been rumours of this for months now, thanks to Montagliani leading the way to fulfill his vision for the three nations. He said in 2014 that Canada needs to “step up” as it is the only G-8 nation that has never hosted the World Cup.


A joint-bid would allow more resources directed towards hosting the expanded tournament. Whether the confederation of North and Central America and the Caribbean are successful or not in their bed, it won’t be known until May 2020.
