Washington DC and Baltimore were not selected to host the US bid 2026 World Cup matches because the nation’s capital created some unwanted history on Thursday.

For the second time in the history of the Men’s World Cup, the host nation’s capital will not host any matches.

The capital or surrounding area was lost only in 1974 when the West German capital Bonn did not host the match.

Snub marks the end of the toughest bid process for Washington, DC, with the city first opening up as an independent bid with FedExField – the suburban Maryland home for NFL’s Washington commanders – its platform.

However, due to a number of issues with the stadium, which is home to NFL’s commanders, Washington DC merged its bid with nearby Baltimore in April.

The joint bid took place at M&T Bank Stadium – home to the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens – and hosts a fan festival and other activities in Washington.
