Vancouver potential host city at Federation Internationale de Football Association 2026 World Cup

North America will submit a joint bid to host the 2026 World Cup, as cities in the United States, Canada and Mexico are considered.

U.S. Bank Stadium is no stranger to hosting global soccer matches. It is, however, well above the 40,000-seat minimum required to host group stage matches. The United Bid Committee, which is coordinating the North American proposal, released their longlist of 46 potential host cities that include Toronto, New York and Vancouver. Cities have until September 5 to declare their interest in taking part in the bid process. The committee plans to formally submit its bid to Federation Internationale de Football Association in March 2018.

With a capacity of less than 80,000, Nissan Stadium is not a candidate to host the opening match or the final. Aside from the logistical challenges, a big list of stadiums does not increase revenue but does raise costs.

Others named were McMahon Stadium in Calgary, Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, Olympic and Saputo stadiums in Montreal, TD Place in Ottawa, Rogers Centre and BMO Field in Toronto, and BC Place in Vancouver. The first sporting event ever held at the stadium was a 2016 International Champions Cup match between A.C. Milan and Chelsea F.C.


Stadiums under consideration in the United States include several venues used in the 1994 World Cup, like the Pasadena Rose Bowl. The committee also requested information on transportation infrastructure and experience hosting major sporting events from the cities identified as potential host sites. At least 12 locations could ultimately host games.

The FIFA World Cup attracted an average of 53,592 people to each of its matches in Brazil in 2014, according to the organization's official web site.

By that time, the committee needs to trim its list to 20 to 25 stadiums.
