Talk of the World Cup 2026 bid campaign

"The report hands the momentum to the North American bid because the [FIFA] task force sees advantages in the areas of stadium, transport as well as ticketing and hospitality. But in line with fairness we will now await the debate over the FIFA Council report. Only after that will the DFB delegation make a decision which bid to back."

-- German soccer federation (DFB) president Reinhard Grindel, saying his federation has yet to make a decision on whether to vote for United 2026 or Morocco to host the 2026 World Cup. Grindel, a FIFA Council member, previously said that FIFA's task force must at all costs avoid disqualifying Morocco's bid before the vote at the FIFA Congress on June 13. Grindel went on to say he couldn't believe that a "not-qualified bidder will win." (Sport Bild via ESPN)
