The allocation of the 2026 World Cup will be transparent

The allocation of the 2026 World Cup will be clear for everyone to follow. With this, FIFA hopes to regain the trust of the football world.

The sport of football is becoming increasingly popular and will continue to do so in 2026. FIFA aims to promote the sport and to involve more and more people in football. People must therefore be able to see and understand why a country is awarded the World Championship.

The World Football Association has drawn up an extensive document to ensure that the bidding process is transparent. The document is part of FIFA's core values and is available in four languages.

The document identifies key elements of revamping the bidding process, including recommendations to protect the integrity of the process, the timeline of selection of the host country, specific requirements for the host country, a detailed description of the guarantees that the government must provide and rules on the protection of human rights.

The allocation of the 2018 World Cup to Russia and the 2022 World Cup to Qatar was done through bribery and corruption. FIFA wants to prevent suspicions of corruption from arising through a transparent, objective and ethical allocation procedure.

Only two candidates have applied for the organization of the 2026 World Cup:

  • Canada, Mexico and the United States together
  • Morocco

The deadline for officially registering as host country was August 11, 2017, on June 13, 2018 it will be announced who host country for the FIFA World Cup. On that day, all 211 members vote.

The World Championship in 2026 will for the first time consist of no fewer than 48 participants.
