Texas Cities To Host 2026 FIFA World Cup Matches
The schedule for the 2026 FIFA World Cup has been revealed and this time, two Texas cities will be hosting matches!
The 2026 FIFA World Cup will see 104 games featuring 48 teams played across 16 host cities in three countries: Canada, Mexico and the United States. Starting June 11, 2026, the World Cup kicks off in Mexico and will soon make its way through the United States with the U.S. opening match taking place in Los Angeles.
Dallas and Houston will be hosting FIFA World Cup 2026 matches on Sunday June 14. At the Dallas Stadium and Houston Stadium (which is how they will be referred to as FIFA prohibits corporate sponsor titles).
Dallas stadium is obviously AT&T Stadium and Houston Stadium is NRG Stadium.
Despite the United States rarely making it to the finals, and the fact that they didn't even qualify for the 2018 World Cup, the USMNT is automatically in as they are a host country! So, we really can't mess this one up!
16 cities in total will host matches across the summer of 2026 and the United States alone will host 11 matches across Atlanta, Boston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, New York/New Jersey, Philadelphia, San Francisco/Bay Area and Seattle; which is where they officially revealed the 2026 logo.
Dallas alone will host nine matches which is the most of any site during the 2026 World Cup. Houston will host seven matches.
Mexico has three hosts in Guadalajara, Mexico City and Monterrey. Canada has two hosts in Toronto and Vancouver.
Tickets are not yet available for the World Cup, but you can register for your interest in tickets at the official FIFA website, as well as catch the entire schedule of matches.
