Canadian government backs United 2026 World Cup bid

Minneapolis is the latest USA city to withdraw from the running to be a host city for the men's 2026 FIFA World Cup, citing unacceptable demands from soccer's global governing body.

A total of 23 cities were chosen by United 2026 as part of their official submission to Federation Internationale de Football Association, which came on the eve of the March 16 deadline.

The full list of Candidate Host Cities can be found below.

While the federal government is backing the city, on Thursday the Alberta government said it would not throw its financial support behind Edmonton's participation in the joint bid.

Behind the Summer Olympics, the men's World Cup is the best-attended sporting event in the world, and the final in Brazil in 2014 attracted a television audience about ten times the size of a Super Bowl's typical audience.

"The Public Stadium Authority enthusiastically stands ready to welcome and host the world's game in Seattle", said Washington State Public Stadium Authority Board Chair Fred Mendoza.
