Gianni Infantino open to 40-team World Cup co-hosted in North America

FIFA president Gianni Infantino is open to a 40-team World Cup in 2026, possibly with three North American countries serving as co-hosts.

With key World Cup talks due next month, Infantino's comments on Tuesday show that FIFA will consider co-hosting by the United States, Canada and Mexico.

In his presidential election campaign, Infantino supported expanding the tournament and hosting across a region.

''These two topics will certainly be on the table for discussion,'' Infantino said, looking ahead to a meeting of the FIFA Council he will chair on Oct. 13-14 in Zurich.
