ZURICH (AP) -- FIFA says its executive committee will approve rules to oversee the 2026 World Cup hosting bids at a two-day meeting starting Monday.
The panel could block European bids in a contest likely to include the United States, Canada and Mexico.
FIFA President Sepp Blatter said last week "it should be" that a continental confederation cannot bid for the next two World Cups after hosting. Russia will stage the 2018 tournament.
FIFA will choose the 2026 host in a May 2017 vote of all member federations.
That reform was passed after the executive committee's controversial choice of Russia and 2022 host Qatar. The nine-candidate bidding contests were marred by allegations of wrongdoing.
In March, FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke promised greater scrutiny of candidates in the new bidding rules.
