FIFA selects Vancouver as a host city for the 2026 World Cup.

The international governing body of football (FIFA) has announced Vancouver as one of the host cities for the 2026 World cup.

The FIFA World Cup 2026 was set to be held in North America with joint hosting from Canada, the United States, and Mexico. The 2026 World Cup will be the biggest World Cup ever held as it would be witnessing 48 teams playing in 80 matches. The United States of America is slated to host sixty matches while Canada and Mexico are to host ten matches each.

“British Columbia welcomes the world for FIFA World Cup 2026,” said Premier John Horgan. “We’re not hosting the largest ever World Cup just for kicks. British Columbians will enjoy an economic boost in the tourism and hospitality sectors that will be felt for years to come. We look forward to welcoming the global soccer community to our province.”

FIFA had selected ten host cities for the United States which include Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles, Kansas City, Dallas and Houston, Boston, New York/New Jersey, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Miami. Mexica was given three host cities Mexico City, Monterrey, and Guadalajara. Canada was given only two cities in Toronto and Vancouver.
