All these parties put on the best show in the world. We look forward to working with them to deliver an unprecedented World Championship in which we strive to make football truly global.

“We are delighted with the unparalleled competitiveness of this selection process. We are very grateful not only to the sixteen selected cities, but also to the other six cities. We want to continue to work with those cities and see the potential of teams that welcome and engage fans. It has always been a three-nation world championship. “There is no doubt that this tournament will have a huge impact on the entire region and the wider soccer community,” said Victor Montagliani, president of CONCACAF, the confederation for the Americas and the Caribbean.
