Countries may bid for the organization of 2026 World Cup
All members of FIFA may make a bid for the organization of the World Cup in 2026, provided their football association has not organized the previous World Championship. The football organization announced this condition on 30 May 2015. With this, FIFA has slightly changed their policy, because the 2022 World Cup was in the past not awarded to a football association that has organized one of the past two World Cups.
This means that countries from the Asian Football Association CAF are not allowed to host the 2026 World Cup, as Qatar has been awarded the 2022 World Cup. The 2026 FIFA World Cup will therefore be awarded to a country from one of the remaining football associations: CONCACAF (last time in 1994), CONMEBOL (last time in 2014), UEFA (last time in 2018), CAF (last time in 2018). times in 2010) or OFC (never organized).
FIFA allows countries to jointly bid for the organization. The 2002 World Cup was the last football tournament to be organized jointly by two countries, namely South Korea and Japan. Then the world football organization decided not to allow this anymore.Read all news »
