The 2026 World Cup will be held in the United States, Canada and Mexico after they beat Morocco by a margin of 69 votes but which bidder did Uganda FA president Moses Magogo vote?
The Ugandan official traveled to Russia for the FIFA Congress with Justus Mugisha and FUFA CEO Edgar Watson with whom they attended the conference.
The Moroccan bid used its final address to Fifa congress to point out that the country has a ban on weapons and would not hike up ticket prices to increase profit, a thinly veiled swipe at their rivals.
But it was not enough to sway the room as they lost the vote, with the United bid receiving 134 votes to their 65.
Shortly after the voting that happened in a period of less than three minutes, Magogo revealed he had voted for African bidder Morocco which lost.
He tweeted his choice, congratulating them upon winning the rights to host the tournament.
We voted for Africa (Morocco) 65 and lost the vote to United Bid 132 (US, Mexico, Canada)
Congratulations to the US, Mexico and Canada
