Today, Athlete Ally Executive Director Hudson Taylor responded to the news that the United 2026 bid was selected for the 2026 World Cup.
“Today marks a new era in which human rights standards have become a prerequisite for hosting the World Cup. FIFA has taken an important step to ensuring human rights are protected, respected, and remedied in the bid process for mega sporting events. Today’s decision underscores the integrity of the bid process, as well FIFA’s commitment to supporting human rights. We congratulate those that worked on the United 2026 Bid. This tremendous undertaking was completed with such integrity, grace and transparency.”
