Co-hosting with up to FOUR countries sharing the load is now being considered.
FIFA President Gianni Infantino said on Thursday he intends to encourage co-hosting for the 2026 soccer World Cup that could divide the tournament up between as many as four countries.
We will encourage co-hosting for the World Cup because we need FIFA to show we are reasonable and we have to think about sustainability long-term, Infantino said.
(We could) ...maybe bring together two, three, four countries who can jointly present a project with three, four, five stadiums each. We will certainly encourage it. Ideally the countries will be close to each other.
