Take diplomatic handover from 2026 World Cup host Qatar

LUCELL, Qatar (AP) – A diplomatic delegation from the three host nations of the 2026 World Cup was in Qatar for a handover ceremony ahead of Sunday’s final between France and Argentina.

The United States, Mexico and Canada will stage soccer’s biggest event in less than three and a half years.

US Presidential Representative Linda Greenfield said, “We couldn’t be more excited.” “We are already working hard to prepare for 2026 and we look forward to welcoming fans from around the world.”

Greenfield told fellow ambassador to the United Nations Sheikha Alia Al Thani of Qatar that the current host “has set the bar high.”

Sheikha Alia said, “The most important thing to remember is that the World Cup is above all things and it plays an extraordinary role in uniting people and countries and building lasting friendships.”
