During the next stage of the bid process, the United Bid Committee will integrate the 32 potential North American host cities - 25 from the USA, four from Canada and three from Mexico - into a bid strategy while working with local officials to finalize the hosting documents required by Federation Internationale de Football Association.

Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto, and Montreal are the last four Canadian cities left in contention, with the bids from Ottawa and Regina being declined. Of those, six (Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Atlanta, Foxborough and Seattle) have been proposed using venues now used by MLS teams.

The list of 32 potential host cities includes four cities in Canada, three in Mexico and 25 in the United States.

"We were so impressed by all the applicants that we will continue to engage with all the cities as part of our hosting strategy", bid committee executive director John Kristick said in a statement.

Canada are yet to stage the World Cup and have only made one appearance to date, making a group exit after three straight defeats at Mexico 1986. "Our sport hosting Vancouver partners put together a compelling story that showcases Vancouver's world-class hosting reputation and experience and we would be honoured to welcome the world again in 2026".

Tampa has advanced to the next stage in hosting the 2026 FIFA World Cup, the Tampa Bay Sports Commission said Wednesday. At least 12 locations could ultimately host games.

The United Bid Committee representing the three nations' joint bid for the event announced Wednesday that nine cities - seven in the U.S., two in Canada - are no longer in the running.

The expedited process for the 2026 event will see the host nation decided at next year's FIFA Congress on June 13 in Moscow, held prior to the opening match of the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

The announcement does not, however, end Jacksonville's links to the tournament. Morocco also submitted a bid for the 2026 tournament, which will be decided on in June.
