The United States, Mexico and Canada announced details for a joint bid for the 2026 World Cup at a news conference on Monday on the 102nd floor of One World Trade Center in New York City.
If the ambitious three-nation bid, first reported last week by the Guardian, is successful it would be the first time a World Cup was co-hosted by multiple countries since the 2002 tournament in South Korea and Japan. The bid also comes at a time when the relationship between Mexico and the United States has come under scrutiny, with the US president, Donald Trump, vowing to build a wall on the Mexican border.

Tijuana is legendary, though that legend has long been for its seedier aspects and just-over-the-border antics than as a respectable travel destination.
However, a lot has changed in recent years. Safer streets, new developments, artisan food trucks, locally-brewed craft beers, gastropubs, all have made Tijuana into more of a “San Diego-South” than its rowdy alter-ego.
Just four months ago, investors in Mexico were bracing for disaster. Trade agreements were sure to be ripped up. Thousands of jobless Mexicans, expelled from their American homes, would flood back across the border. And the peso? Analysts could hardly cut their forecasts fast enough.
Turns out, life in the era of Donald Trump hasn’t been that bad so far.
Mexico’s benchmark equity index has erased the losses triggered by Trump’s win in November and is actually up 7 percent this year. The peso, the world’s biggest loser in 2016, is now staging a surprise rally that puts it atop the emerging-market heap. Investors including Discovery Americas say they’re investing in Mexico again after putting purchases on hold at the start of the year.
