Boon Expected For Us Soccer But No Sea Change As World Cup 2026 Co-hosts


– After winning the right to co-host the 2026 World Cup, U.S. Soccer President Carlos Cordeiro hailed the victory on Wednesday as a “lightning rod” that will inspire more American children to take up the sport.

“We believe that soccer … will become the preeminent sport in North America and I am not just speaking for the U.S.,” Cordeiro told a conference call after FIFA’s Congress voted for the United States, Canada and Mexico’s joint bid over Morocco.

But while soccer’s popularity in the United States can expect a boost, it was unlikely to dominate anytime soon, sports experts said.
