It looks like the 2026 World Cup will be held in the USA (again) or Canada.




Prob both with Final on Saturday July 4th. (250th anniversary).



July 1, 2018 to June 30,2019 = 273 /231 / 42 (You know my rules) @ 15 / 06 / 2019.
0-0's are standing at 18.
Benelux = Bel = 0-0-0-(0-0-0)-(0-0-0-0-0). Lux = 0-0. Neth-= 0-0-0-(0 - 0).

All hosts get a bye to the finals. If there's more than one, the host continent receives one less qualifying place.

Doesn't look like Uruguay will be hosting the centennial World Cup in 2030.


With 48 teams to accomodate, the number of potential hosts must be rather limited.
Or if joint hosts are found, will each have a bye to the finals?
According to reports, the WC can now accommodate more joint bids and the U.S., Mexico & Canada are thinking about a joint bid for the 2026 WC.http://www.foxsportsasia.com/...world-cup-joint-bid/

Is Donald Trump behind the bid. He is well-known for encouraging close links with Mexico, so much so that he wants to build an expensive wall to provide employment for hard up Mexicans!

If this new allocation is approved and comes into being then I think the play-offs are to be seeded based on FIFA rankings.

Ecuador playing the winners of St Kitts / Tahiti
Morocco playing the winners of curašao / China

Croatia
Australia

Group B
Brazil (Seed)
Holland
Saudi Arabia

Group C
Argentina (Seed)
Iceland
Uzbekistan

Group D
Germany (Seed)
Peru
UAE

Group E
Chile (Seed)
Rep of Ireland
Qatar

Group F
Belgium (Seed)
Ecuador
New Zealand

Group G
France (Seed)
Mexico
Egypt

Group H
Colombia (Seed)

Based on your groups then there a few games that don't get the pulse racing and of course an England failure at the group stage.

Yes, I'm not sure whether the low point was reaching 'Group P', Wales being top seeds or Iceland v Uzbekistan in a qualification decider!

Re: [MrTangerineMan] 48 team World Cup [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Since an expanded World Cup is money based rather than football based then I compiled a list of qualifiers for 2026 based on FIFA's sponsors requirements. The list of based on the top 48 economies, using FIFA allocations for each region and where a region doesn't have a country with an economy in the top 48 then FIFA ranking is used. Each section is alphabetical order not economy or FIFA ranking order.

UEFA (16 places plus 1 play-off)
Austria
Belgium
England
France
Germany
Israel
Italy
Netherlands
Norway
Poland
Republic of Ireland
Russia
Scotland
Spain
Sweden
Switzerland
Turkey

CAF (9 places)
Burkina Faso
Cameroon
Congo DR
Egypt
Ghana
Nigeria
Senegal
South Africa
Tunisia

AFC (8 places plus 1 play-off)
Australia
China
India
Indonesia
Iran
Japan
Saudi Arabia
South Korea
Thailand

CONCACAF (6 places)
Canada
Costa Rica
Haiti
Mexico
Panama
United States of America

CONMEBOL (6 places)
Argentina
Brazil
Chile
Colombia
Uruguay
Venezuela

OFC (1 place)
New Zealand

Presumably at the end of a convoluted series of matches at the finals the results will be rigged to ensure a USA v China final where maybe (just maybe) the winners will be the team that scores most goals rather than the one with the biggest economy.

Are these three parts of a superteam?

David Icke in goal, Teletubbies in defence, George and Zippy up front.

So who misses out from Rod, Jane and Freddy to partner Geoffrey and Bungle in midfield?



Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

The United States, Canada and Mexico have announced they will make a joint bid to host the 2026 World Cup. The proposal would be for the USA to host 60 matches, with 10 games each in Canada and Mexico.

With President Trump wanting t build a wall between USA and Mexico then theyy will have to make provision for a turnstile built into the wall Laugh. If the bid is successful then it will be the third time Mexico will have hosted a World Cup (1970 & 1986) and second time for the USA (1994).

That rubs out half of the automatic qualification places for CONCAF then, albeit Mexico and USA tend to occupy two of the current three places anyway.

By my interpretation of the proposed qualifying rules, COnCAF would be left with 3 automatic and 2 play-off places.

With a decision from FIFA regarding hosts for 2026 not being made until 2020 that doesn't leave a lot of time for preparation, which would mostly be upgrades to the stadiums for this bid. Six years rules out almost every other country that might have considered a bid and current FIFA rules mean no bids can come from either Asia or Europe. Unless Europe is allowed to bid then this joint USA/Mexico/Canada bid could be the only one on the table.
