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.

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.
