The congress will vote on two bids hoping to host the global showpiece: Morocco and the joint bid from the United States, Canada and Mexico.

According to Fairfax Media, Football Federation Australia will vote for the North American bid.ย The World Cup has never been held in three countries at once.

Disgraced former FIFA President, Sepp Blatter - who is serving a six-year ban from football, says Morocco is the "logical" choice.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is expected to take part in the congress and issued a standiing invitation to Blatter to attend the tournament.

But football icon David Beckham, who has played in the MLS and is behind Miami MLS expansion team, has given the thumbs up to United 2026 saying it taps into a region were the "football runs deep".


This year the annual FIFA Congress takes place at Moscowโ€™s Expocentreย  ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup start.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup will be held at 12 stadiums in 11 Russian cities from June 14 to July 15.
