The North American bid for the 2026 World Cup has gained the support of the 10 South American soccer nations.

The announcement from CONMEBOL on Friday came two months before the FIFA Congress is due to vote on whether to award the tournament to Morocco, or to the joint bid from the United States, Canada and Mexico.

FIFA's bid inspection team has spent the week in North America, visiting all three countries, and it travels to Morocco next week.
