The socks are red and Montopoli wore them when Canada won the right to host the 2015 Women's World Cup as well as the 2012 and 2016 women's Olympic bronze-medal matches.
The North American nations' pitch outscored Morocco on the official evaluation, which laid the groundwork for a return to the continent for the first time since United States of America hosted alone in 1994.
CONCACAF, whose president - Canadian Victor Montagliani - played a key role in the bid, called the vote a "monumental victory" for the confederation that covers North and Central America and the Caribbean.
So Morocco concentrated its pitch on the country's undisputed passion for football, the notion that Africa deserves another World Cup after South Africa 2010, its far more compact offering and Euro-friendly time zone.
The North America bid received 134 of the 203 votes, while Morocco polled 65 in the vote of the FIFA Congress in Moscow which saw one member vote for "neither bid".More news: Saudis Announce Start of Attack on Key Yemen Aid Port
The 2018 FIFA World Cup kicks off on Thursday with the opening match in the Russian capital of Moscow between hosts Russia and the national team from Saudi Arabia. With three host countries, it would be natural to give all three host sides a Day 1 showcase.
However, FIFA previously ruled that should the "United bid" beat out Morocco, the number of host countries to automatically qualify for the 2026 World Cup would be decided by another vote by the FIFA council sometime in the future. The MetLife Stadium in New York City will host the prestigious World Cup final.
Yet that could be the decisive factor, along with the reality that 2026 will (probably) be the first finals to stage 48 teams.
A spokesperson said: "We congratulate the USA, Canada and Mexico on winning the bid to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup". The United Bid is expecting to make more than half that in ticket revenue alone.
That, along with the promise of major revenues from North American sponsors and television networks, was appealing to Federation Internationale de Football Association, an organization that has been beset by global corruption scandals, concerns over exorbitant costs related to previous tournaments, and allegations of widespread labor and human rights abuses around the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.More news: Murder probe as hunt under way for killers of Polish man
It's important to note that this was the first World Cup held after World War II.
Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal are in the running to be among the 16 host cities. The tournament will still take place over 32 days.
But there is no more unpredictable entity in global sport than soccer's governing body, even as it loudly claims to have cleaned up its act after being engulfed in financial scandal in recent times.
The evaluation report also offers a "technical scoring" of the two bids, with Morocco getting 274.9 out of 500, compared to the United bid's 402.8 total.More news: Syria strikes kill 15 civilians after militant attack - monitor
