Houston selected as a 2026 FIFA host!
 
Loading Image...
 
Houston has been selected as one of the 11 U.S. host cities for the FIFA World Cup 2026!
 
Houston’s world-class hosting credentials, infrastructure and energizing venues like NRG Stadium have hosted multiple large-scale sporting events and will provide the ultimate environment for international players to perform at their best.
 
Houston will ensure full stadiums and a truly global celebration of soccer, in and out of competition.
 
Houston is set to host World Cup matches alongside ten other cities in the U.S., three in Mexico, and two in Canada, respectfully, set to kick off in the summer of 2026. For the first time, the tournament will feature 48 teams, expanding the world’s biggest and most popular sporting event.

Sounds expensive.
We're still paying for the Astrodome.
 
Does hosting the world Cup make money?
The major chunk of profits in World Cup tournaments is derived from ticket sales as well as selling television rights to the event. The host country gets no part of these profits. These profits belong to FIFA alone!

Cost spread out with three countries. Local economy will do well depending on what games play here.

@TownHubAdmin : Cannot wait! My husband is dying to see Argentina play just once in his lifetime. All the greats of his youth will be gone but he'd still be there!
 
I really hope we are able to get tix. I'll have probably 4 people trying at the same time and there should 4-6 games in Houston.
