BREAKING: 2026 FIFA World Cup to Be Played in USA

The “United” Bid for the 2026 World Cup has come out victorious in their hopes to host the World Cup in eight years. Here are the answers to your questions:

What does “United” mean?

The so-called “United” bid is a joint-hosting bid from the three North American nations: Canada, Mexico, and the USA. This means that the games that will be played during this World Cup will be played in all three nations, bringing more economic revenue to all of the countries. This also means that the countries will be splitting the costs in updating infrastructure, security, and all other costs to the country for hosting it.

Will the state of US Soccer be better?

Hopefully. It is hard to know, but soccer in the US was still growing before 2017, so if the US can recapture that growth we could become a decent contender by then.

What if we don’t make it again?

Host countries always make it to the Group Stage

How will the games be divided by host country?

80 matches in total, with 60 matches for the US, and 10 for Canada and Mexico. There will be 10 host cities in the US and 3 in both Mexico and Canada.

Which cities will be host cities?

USA:  Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Cincinnati, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, New York/New Jersey, Orlando, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, DC

Canada: Edmonton, Montréal, and Toronto

Mexico: Guadalajara, Mexico City, Monterrey

Where will the final be played?

The World Cup final will be played at MetLife Stadium, home to the New York Giants, in East Rutherford, New Jersey (8 miles away from New York City).
