Mexico will seek to host the World in 2026

The president of the Mexican Football Federation Justino Compean glimpsed the possibility that Mexico organized for the third time a World Cup in 2026 .

"Of course it is valid to think about organizing for the third time a World Cup Mexico 2026 will seek to be based ," said Compeán in public act of Concacaf .

Mexico hosted the FIFA World Cups in 1970 and 1986, and seeking the possibility of organizing once again will be difficult as no country has hosted the tournament more than twice.

FIFA Congress

The FIFA Congress is the supreme legislative body of the International Federation of Association Football (French: Fédération Internationale de Football Association), commonly known by the acronym FIFA /ˈfiːfə/. FIFA is the international governing body of association football, futsal and beach football.

The FIFA congress has been held annually since 1998. It was previously held every two years. Congresses were not held between 1915–1922 and 1939–1945 due to the First and Second World Wars.

FIFA Presidential elections have taken place at the 1st, 3rd, 12th, 29th, 30th, 39th, 51st and 61st congresses. The 1961 FIFA extraordinary congress in London elected Stanley Rous as President.
