The FIFA World Cup is an international sports spectacle that occurs every 4 years, drawing in viewers from around the world. The United States, Mexico and Canada have come together to create the United 2026 bid, which would allow 16 cities between all three countries to participate as host. 

According to United2026.com, the distributions of the games would be:

We envision the 2026 FIFA World Cup™ staged across 16 already existing world-class stadiums throughout Canada, Mexico, and the United States. We have agreed to share the responsibility of hosting by staging 10 matches in Canada, 10 in Mexico, and 60 in the United States.

Both M&T Bank Stadium (home of the Baltimore Ravens in Baltimore, MD) and FedEx Field (home of the Washington Redskins in Landover, MD) are among the 23 candidate host cities included in the bid. The United 2026 bid still has to beat out Morocco for the privileges of hosting the World Cup 8 years from now and if they do, upwards of 16 of the 23 listed cities will be selected as the hosts. 

The other cities in consideration are:
