FIFA kicks off venue visits to 2026 FIFA World Cup candidate host cities!

Following various virtual sessions and continued exchange on a wide range of technical matters, FIFA will launch the first venue visits to the 2026 FIFA World Cup candidate host cities on September 15.

The initial tour will last nine days, with visits to the following US cities: Boston, Nashville, Atlanta, Orlando, Washington DC, Baltimore, New York/New Jersey, Philadelphia and Miami.

The remaining US bidding venues, as well as those in Canada and Mexico, will be visited by the end of November. This series of visits is a key step in selecting the best venues for the tournament, with a view to finalising this highly competitive selection process by Q1/Q2 2022.

The overall delegation will be led by FIFA Vice-President and CONCACAF president Victor Montagliani, and will include FIFA experts across multiple fields, including venue management, stadium and city infrastructure, team facilities, commercial, bidding and legal.
