FIFA President Infantino promises “fair and transparent” 2026 World Cup bidding process

FIFA President Gianni Infantino has described the bid process for the 2026 World Cup as “fair, objective and transparent” after the global football body announced it had received bid books from two candidates on Monday. FIFA said in a statement that it had received one bid from Morocco and a joint bid from the United States, Canada and Mexico.

The world football governing body is due to choose the hosts at its annual congress in Moscow in June. FIFA added that the two bids will be evaluated by a task force which will visit all the potential host nations.
