The World Cup is Coming to Canada
(CANADIAN PRESS) -- The world's biggest sporting event is coming to Canada for the first time.
FIFA announced this morning in Russia that the North American bid has won the right to host the 2026 World Cup.
The joint Canada-US-Mexico bid beat out Morocco, the only other country in the running for the tournament.
The decision could also bring the World Cup to Toronto.
Although FIFA has the final say on where the games will be held, Canada is expected to host 10 matches with a handful at BMO Field.
