With 23 seats competing for 16 seats, a number of well-known cities (and places) were rejected. Washington, D.C., the nation’s capital (in a joint bid with Baltimore to host the games), was not selected.

The Rose Bowl, which hosted the 1994 World Cup Final, was also not selected, as Los Angeles offered two stadiums as options; SoFi Stadium, home of the NFL’s Rams and Chargers, was chosen. Cincinnati, Denver, Nashville and Orlando were other US cities that were not included in the 2026 World Cup venues, along with Canada’s Edmonton.


Format and qualification of the 2026 World Cup

Now that we know the host cities, stadiums and venues for the 2026 World Cup, let’s talk about the tournament itself…

First of all, it is believed (but not confirmed) as host countries that the US, Canada and Mexico will automatically qualify for the 2026 World Cup.

The 2026 World Cup will be the first tournament to feature 48 teams divided into 16 groups of three. Each team will play two group stage games (one less than three), with the 1st and 2nd place players advancing to the Round of 16. It will also be the first World Cup to be held in three different host countries.

The idea behind the addition of 16 teams is that one round of group stage games is eliminated and replaced with an additional round of knockout games in the knockout rounds.

Given that the final round of group games may matter little or even nothing pending earlier results, the new format ensures that almost every game in the 2026 World Cup will make a huge difference.

Yes, FIFA will make a lot more money by changing the format, but fans will also get a better product from start to finish, with more global superstars from “smaller” national teams than ever before.
