    A total of 41 North American cities have officially submitted bids to host the 2026 World Cup.

    The joint bid for the United States, Mexico and Canada is heavily favored to win the right to host the World Cup. FIFA will review all cities’ submissions and release an initial shortlist of venues this fall.

    Of the 80 matches in the 48-team tournament, the U.S. is set to host 60, with Mexico and Canada hosting 10 matches each.

    All stadiums are required to have at least 40,000 seats for group-stage matches and a capacity of at least 80,000 is required for the opening match and the final.
