What will be the impact of 2026 World Cup on U.S. soccer?


American soccer fans are celebrating after FIFA announced Wednesday that the U.S. will co-host the 2026 World Cup along with Mexico and Canada. TV host and podcaster Roger Bennett is among the fans rejoicing. He is one of the soccer-obsessed “Men in Blazers” and the co-writer of the new book, “Encyclopedia Blazertannica: A Suboptimal Guide to Soccer, America’s ‘Sport of the Future’ Since 1972.” He is also host of the podcast, “American Fiasco,” which traces the rise and fall of the U.S. national team in the 1990s. Bennett joins “CBS This Morning” to preview the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Football is the only sports where you have all races and people represented is not a only black sport for people over 6'3" the only relevant sport around the world even the NBA is no longer appealing after jordan retire.

Get moms out of soccer, get the dads more involved. No cookies and juice during half time and pizza after the game. Get rid of the "everybody plays"rule. The whole culture needs to be reformed. Make peewee soccer cut throat because u know what, thats how it is in the rest of world like brazil and europe

USA team sucks. Unless they get major players to be us citizens they are going to fail. USA does not understand soccer.

How the football fans of the world see the world cup appointment: countries that care about football and have historic prestigious football stadiums should be granted the world cup.

How FIFA sees the World Cup appointment: money money money money moneeeeeey

(I respect mexico football and its history, but this is their 3rd world cup since 1970)

As a Moroccan myself I am happy we don't host the FIFA World Cup. It's to expensive and the money should be spend on education, healtcare, poverty reduction, job creation, infrastructure and agriculture. We have seen it in South Africa and Brazil, not worth it. Congratz Canada, USA and Mexico.

Mexico would be the 3rd time to host the World cup in 2026 the Last time Mexico Played was in 1974 and in 1986 so this is Very exited for Mexico but also Canada they Never host the Fifa world cup before but it is very excited for the North of the Border as Well as the U.S it would be the second time to Play the Fifa world cup for almost 25 years ago.

None! Soccer will never be as big as NBA or NFL even if they the US host world cup every 4 years.

Double standard how the woman can talk about Ronaldo but if a man talked like that on air nowadays women would be outraged

THE BEAUTIFUL GAME!! I followed every American sport for years, then discovered real football. NOTHING ELSE COMES CLOSE TO IT!!

It is obvious that this is a panic response to The usa's disastrous WC qualifying campaign. Th country would have turned it's back on the game had FIFA not rigged this.

OMG. NO! So crappy undeserving teams like Canada and the US who don't give a f*ck about FOOTBALL will get to play in the World Cup finals without kicking a ball in qualification rounds?! The average visiting fan now has to travel across three vast countries in an ENTIRE continent just to see their team compete. Imagine the distances? And the cost of travel and accomodation? HUGE! This is bad for the world's football fans. Disgraceful.

The fact that the USA calls football soccer should have disqualified them from hosting any world cup match ever.
