Explore the full list of soccer stadiums for the 2026 FIFA World Cup in the United States, Mexico and Canada
Since the 2018 FIFA Congress, the United States, Mexico and Canada have been selected to host the 2026 World Cup – officially known as the United bid—, The three North American countries have been working to host the next edition of the world’s most prestigious soccer tournament.
The 2026 World Cup will be the first to include 48 participating teams instead of 32. Despite the confusion surrounding the unconfirmed tournament format, the three host countries will not have to build new stadiums – unlike in preparation for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar— Instead, some stadiums will take the opportunity to upgrade their installations, including Mexico City’s Estadio Azteca, Dallas’ AT&T Stadium and Toronto’s BMO Field.
The Canadian stadium will have to almost triple its seating to meet FIFA’s minimum capacity requirements: stadiums must have a minimum of 40,000 seats, while those hosting quarterfinals must have a minimum of 60,000, and finally the fields where the opening ceremony or the final will take place should have a capacity of at least 80,000 seats.
As of 2022, the 2026 FIFA World Cup stadiums will be divided into sixteen venues: 11 in the United States, 3 in Mexico and the remaining 2 in Canada.
