The cities that will be hosting the 2026 FIFA World Cup have been elected! This World Cup is in a league of its own and will stand out as the most unique tournament that has ever been played throughout the course of history.

Four summers from now, the World Cup will be hosted in 16 different cities which are in municipalities stretched out across the continent of North America in three different countries! The United States of America, Mexico and Canada will all join together and host the battle between 48 different nations in a game of soccer which is a step up from the original 32-team competition.  Buy Tickets

The United States will provide 11 different venues throughout its land for the 2026 FIFA World Cup to be held: San Francisco Bay Area (Levi's Stadium); Seattle (Lumen Field); New York/New Jersey (MetLife Stadium); Miami (Hard Rock Stadium); Philadelphia (Lincoln Financial Field); Los Angeles (SoFi Stadium); Boston (Gillette Stadium); Dallas (AT&T Stadium); Atlanta (Mercedes-Benz Stadium); Kansas City (Arrowhead Stadium); and Houston (NRG Stadium). The World Cup has not been hosted in the US since 1994.

The cities in Mexico that will host World Cup matches will be Monterrey (Estadio BBVA Bancomer), Guadalajara (Estadio Akron) and Mexico City (Estadio Azteca). Mexico will set an incredible feat of being the only country ever to host or co-host the World Cup three times.

However, Canada deserves congratulations itself since it will be the first time in the history of the country that a men's World Cup will be hosted inside its borders. The World Cup will be held in the cities of Vancouver (BC Place) and Toronto (BMO Field).

The massive event will have all of its matches played on natural grass. The part of the series that will be taking place in America will exploit a variety of football fields that will be modified.

Soccer is the most-watched sport in the entire world having an extraordinary fan base of almost half of the world's population. Having said that, it could not be any more exciting to be a citizen of one of these three countries during this legendary clash between nations that only occurs once every four years.

One of the main highlights of the proclamation of the United 2026 World Cup is that the final is expected to be hosted in Dallas, Los Angeles, and New York City/New Jersey. Not only the final but both the quarterfinals and semifinals will be held in the United States as well!

FIFA will have both Canada and Mexico host 10 matches each while the United States will host 60 making the series come out to a grand total of 80 games. The venues that will host the World Cup will be split into three different regions: Central, East, and West.
