The United States will have 11 cities hosting the World Cup 2026 games. FIFA announced the news on Friday while revealing the full list of venues for the tournament.
While the U.S. will get the most of World Cup 2026 action, games will also be played in Canada and Mexico. Two cities in Canada and three cities in Mexico also made the cut.
The list of U.S. host cities includes Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, New York / New Jersey, Philadelphia, San Francisco Bay Area, and Seattle. Toronto and Vancouver will host Canada’s portion of the games, while Guadalajara, Monterrey, and Mexico City lead the way for Mexico.
“I want to congratulate all the bid cities that will host games,” said U.S. Soccer president Cindy Parlow Cone in a statement. “I know you will all do a fantastic job of sharing your world class stadiums, unique communities and culture, and amazing fans when the world comes to the North America in four years.”
2026 will mark the first year that the World Cup will be played in three countries. This will be the second time for the United States to host the tournament and the first for Canada. On the other hand, Mexico will serve as a host for the third time, which is more than any other country.
Out of 80 games set to be played at World Cup 2026, 60 will take place in the United States, 10 in Mexico, and 10 in Canada. All quarterfinals and semi-finals matches, as well as the World Cup finals game, will be played in the U.S.
