I doubt it. Brazil is still a very disjointed team.

Saw the United States was awarded the 2026 World Cup. USA gets 60 games, Canada and Mexico get 10 each.

Does USA auto qualify as host? We may need that loophole.

In the past shared hosts get spots but this will be the first time 3 nations share

So I'll be 46 in 2026, I'm going to have to make it point to make it out to a WC match. I'm not a big fan of the sport, but I love the fandom and would love to experience it.

I was in Greece for the recent Champions league final between Liverpool and RM and it was bonkers. It reminded me of Super Bowl Sunday walking by all the bars, shops, and restaurants as literally every TV and radio was tuned into it with everyone's eyes glued to the screen.

Yeah, I would think a WC game would be top 5 for most sports fans' bucket list.

If three countries get automatic spots, there will be some pissed off North American countries. Will be interesting to see if they give an extra spot to North America.

Why would any of them have a right to be pissed off?

I’m guessing with the expansion of the tournament to 48, CONCACAF gets 5 places. As such 2 more would still be open (maybe an additional 1/2 spot too).

Yes I think something like 2/3 of group stage games are in the US and all the knock-out rounds are.

That more or less matches up with what I've heard. Canada in the World Cup. Oh what a time to be alive.

In 2026, There will be 16 groups of 3 and the top 2 make it to the 32 team knockout stage. Which actually sounds more interesting than now.
