In case you somehow missed the massive news this morning, the 2026 FIFA World Cup will be hosted by Canada, the United States, and Mexico. The United North American bid beat Morocco by a total of 134 votes to 65 at FIFA’s 68th Congress in Moscow, Russia.

The voting roll has been released by FIFA, and we now have access to how all 203 eligible members placed their votes. As you can see, Africa generally rallied around Morocco (although perhaps not as thoroughly as expected), while much of South America, Eastern Europe, and Southeast Asia voted for North America.

Here is the total list of how countries voted, in alphabetical order, beginning with the members that did not cast votes for various reasons.

Countries not voting: Canada, Mexico, United States, Morocco, Guam, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands

Countries abstaining: Cuba, Slovenia, Spain

Countries voting for “none of the bids”: Iran
