If you are an early, early riser on the east coast or a late, late night owl on the west coast, here’s how you can watch FIFA’s vote that is slated to determine the host of the 2026 World Cup Wednesday morning.

As the 12th item on the agenda of the 68th FIFA Congress, the vote by FIFA member associations is expected to take place between 5-7 a.m. ET.

FS1 and UDN will provide coverage of the event.

FOXSports.com and the FOX Sports App live stream the Congress as will fifa.com and the FIFA TV YouTube channel  beginning at 2 a.m. ET.

Beginning at 6:30 a.m. ET, FS1 will have additional coverage throughout regularly scheduled programming, as the two candidates – Morocco and the United Bid of the United States, Mexico and Canada – await the decision.
