The FIFA Congress held its annual meeting the day before the start of the World Cup to vote on whether the USA -led bid or the Morocco bid will get to host the soccer tournament.

This is the first World Cup since 2006 to be hosted in Europe.

Of the 80 games, 10 will be held in Canada, 10 in Mexico and 60 in the U.S., with the final played at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, home to the NFL's New York Giants and New York Jets.

According to briefs in the case, Harmon "expressed his dissatisfaction with the candidates by exercising his right not to vote". In a related development, the State Board of Elections announced Monday afternoon they had reached an agreement with the U.S.

The North American bid was in better shape to host the World Cup. The Americans' bid to host 2022 was usurped by Qatar in the vote in 2010, and it's been a long eight years for the right to bid again to bring the showpiece event back.

"Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2026", Carlos Cordiero, president of the US Soccer Federation told Congress. "Football today is the only victor".

Morocco's candidacy is believed to be strong with support expected from a majority of African countries and the European confederation.United States of America hosted the FIFA World Cup in 1994, while Mexico hosted in 1970 and 1986.

"Argentina's Nestor Pitana has been assigned as the referee for the Opening Match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup™ between Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia on Thursday 12 June at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow", a statement on FIFA's website reads. The bid also expects record ticket and hospitality revenue.

At the end of its technical meeting ahead of the World Cup finals which gets underway this week in Russia, FIFA announced that changes will be made to the way that the world rankings of global teams are calculated, switching to a method that add or subtracts points from a country's total rather than averaging them over a multi-year period.
