FIFA President Gianni Infantino has met United States President Donald Trump to discuss the 2026 World Cup, which is to be jointly hosted by US, Mexico and Canada. The ‘United 2026’ bid was selected by FIFA member nations in 2018, winning 134 votes compared to 65 for Morocco the other contender at the time.
“Ever since I was elected, we have shown our determination to eradicate malpractice that tarnished FIFA’s reputation in the past, we have reiterated our willingness to cooperate and assist the authorities in their investigation and prosecution of corruption, which has no place in football.”
Infantino also attended the signing of a landmark agreement between Bahrain, Israel and the United Arab Emirates, which was conducted at the White House.
