MANAMA (Reuters) - FIFA are to leave open the bidding process for the 2026 World Cup until August after rejecting an attempt by the three-nation North American proposal to fast-track their plan, a FIFA source told Reuters.
FIFA's ruling council on Tuesday opted to leave the 2026 event open to other possible bidders for a further three months.
The bid from the United States, Mexico and Canada remains the only proposal so far to host the 2026 event.
