Headlines
As has been expected, Mexico is certainly interested in hosting the 2026 World Cup. Mexican Football Federation president Decio de Maria has come out publically stating that his country will bid for hosting rights with or without the United States. There had been talk of a joint bid between the two CONCACAF giants. With Gianni Infantino recently announcing that he wants to expand the competition by as many as 16 teams, a joint bid would make plenty of sense. Mexico probably lacks the infrastructure to handle a greatly expanded tournament, but combined with the USA they certainly would. North America has hosted the World Cup twice. Mexico held the 1986 event and the USA hosted in 1994.
