Of the many national US sports media TV outlets only BEIN sports talked about the 2026 award.
And if you are looking at other conventional national news outlets you could as well forget about it.

Yep!
And at least today being the day FIFA broke the news you would expect it covered all over.
Shows you the general lip service on soccer.

That is NOT true. Before I left this morning, FOX, NBC, CBS and ABC all were reporting or reported it. Those were the channels I briefly checked as I was leaving

The news was breaking interrupted FS1's "First Things First" and ESPN's morning show. There's threads on US based hip hop forums, fashion, sneaker forums I follow too.

...nope, every news outlet, national, local, cable and broadcast news all said something. Though that ends today, news come and go in America, and soccer is not something hung around too long.

Okay, here is a question for the experts to answer for me. Please see below:

With three nations (CANADA, MEXICO and USA) as hosts for the 2026 FIFA World cup, which among the three nations will "automatically" qualify for the tournament, or will all three qualify? Just wondering

Great question.

When Japan and South Korea co-hosted both of them automatically made it in.

All three plus three more CONCACAF nations.

I was about to say. I heard it on ESPN and it interrupted ESPN regularly scheduled program (Mike Greenberg's show with Jalen Rose, etc). Several local stations are covering it as well as the opening of the World Cup even when they have no media rights to the event. I am invited on one of the local TV shows for the opening day tomorrow. Thus, I am not sure that one can truly state that the event had been ignored.

Actually, Infantino stated all three will make it (taking from normal CONCACAF berths) and there is precedence from 2002 with S/Korea and Japan. However, FIFA later pulled this back stating that the official decision will be taken at a later FIFA meeting. In any case, it isn't a big deal noting that USA and Mexico are perennial qualifiers (except USA did not make it this year in an aberrant year for them).

It is actually not bad at all.

Mexico and USA ordinarily qualify. Then you have four more countries (including Canada).

The others possibly being Honduras, Panama and Costa Rica?

but remember this is a 48 team World Cup!

Africa's allocation rises from 16% to 19% approximately

Concacaf rises from 11% to 13% approximately.

Thanks to everyone who answered my question and with promptness. Special thanks to - Chief Enugu II - for the expanded or detailed answer to the question
