The World Cup 2026 is coming to North America.

The United States, Canada and Mexico are making history with FIFA World Cup 26. This will be the first time the matches are hosted in three different countries. Other firsts include the number of matches, which will increase from 64 to 80, and the number of qualifying teams, which will grow from 32 to 48.

The World Cup provides significant benefits for host cities, including an increase in international tourism and media exposure. Between TV viewership and social media, the 2020 World Cup had billions of people engaged in the matches.

Economic benefits for host locations include direct revenues through ticket sales and broadcast rights. Visiting teams and fans will also spend money on hotels, bars and restaurants, transportation, tourist attractions, souvenirs, and other items. This can lead to more jobs and a feeling of pride in cities hosting the event.

If you have properties in any of the host cities, now is the time to plan for renovations or refreshes. In addition to updating the décor, make sure you design high-impact spots perfect for selfies to share on social media.
The 16 host cities are using existing stadiums to significantly reduce costs.
